PRIVACY POLICY – CANARY7 

Thank you for trusting Canary7 Ltd (we, us or Canary7) to be responsible for your personal data, which we want you to know that we take seriously.  

This privacy policy (policy) informs you about how we look after your personal data when you interact with us as one of our customers or suppliers (or as an employee or representative of same), visit us at our premises, visit or use our websites (regardless of where you visit them from) (our websites) including software applications such as our Canary7 warehouse management platform (Canary7), which you may access and use on a software as a service basis (being the Software Services). Any data that we collect through Canary7 or generally when providing you with our other paid services (the Services) shall be known as the Customer Data, and any data collected specifically through Canary7 known as the Canary7 Data. 

It also informs you how we will look after your personal data when, and about your privacy rights and how the law protects you. It does not cover any third party website you have used to access our websites or the Software Services or any third party websites that you access from them. 

It applies to all processing of personal data undertaken by Canary7 other than processing of personal information in the context of recruitment and employment, which is dealt with under separate internal policies.  

It is important that you read this policy so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data.  

This policy also includes the general cookies and similar technologies policy for the Canary7 website at Appendix 1 below and our cookies and similar technologies policy in relation to Canary7, at Appendix 2 below.  

Before using the Services, you individually, or acting on behalf of the company who has paid for access to the Services, will need to have agreed to our standard customer terms.

1. WHO WE ARE

1.1 Contact Details 

Our full details are:

Postal Address: 7 Corchoney Road, Cookstown, Northern Ireland, BT80 9HU;  

ICO Registration Number: [ZB329131] (this is the number under which we are registered with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office as a fee paying data controller).  

1.2 Under the UK General Data Protection Regulation or the EU General Data Protection Regulation (collectively GDPR) and other relevant data protection legislation, we act as both a data controller (i.e., where we make decisions) in relation to your personal data that we collect, as well as a data processor (i.e., where we process data broadly in accordance with your instructions).  

When we act as a Data Processor: When as a user you use the Software Services to process personal data, or we process personal data on your behalf, whether through our provision of the Services to you or otherwise, we act as a data processor. Under these circumstances, the user may act as a data controller or data processor itself, and we will act as either a processor or a sub-processor. Whenever we act as a processor, or a sub-processor, we will be restricted in the manner and purpose for which we can use personal data (including where applicable in the manner outlined in this policy) and we will also be subject to other obligations under data protection legislation. 

When we act as a Data Controller: By contrast, when we collect personal data and determine the purposes and means of processing that personal data – for example, when we store account information for Canary7 user account registration, administration, services access, or contact information as explained below – we act as a data controller. 

1.3  Third-Party Links 

Our websites and the Software Services may include links to third-party websites, widgets, plug-ins and applications (including various social media platforms). Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you or allow you to import data from those third party applications or websites into the Canary7 platform.  

We do not control these third-party websites or applications and are not responsible for their privacy statements, although we have attempted to provide some high level details in relation to third party platforms with which our websites integrate in Appendix 2. When you leave our website or application, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every third party website or application you visit.

Certain jurisdictions, including the European Union, may deem IP addresses and/or Unique IDs, to be personal data. Accordingly, for persons in such jurisdictions, our use of non-identifying information as described in this policy should be assumed to include IP address and Unique ID data. 

We also treat anonymised information about specific users who have achieved certain results or objectives using Canary 7, or similar aggregated information relating to use of Canary 7, as non-identifying information, e.g. X user managed to reduce average warehouse processing times by X% when using Canary 7. We do not treat specific confidential information, for example customer names or lists, or stock information, as non-identifying information.  

 

We may use non-identifying information for any purpose, including where we combine it with third party data sources (including data obtained from offline sources and data obtained from our users using the Software Services) in our effort to improve the Software Services.

These co-marketing partners are required to adhere to our privacy and data protection policies (excluding private Customer Data and Canary7 Data);

5.3 We do not share, sell, rent, or trade personal data with third parties for their commercial purposes. However, we may share non-identifying information (as defined above at Paragraph 4.12) with users, affiliates, and other third parties for any purpose. For example, we may compile statistics on the usage of particular formats on Canary7, or details of how users have generally interacted with Canary7 or achieved certain outcomes or results via the platform.  

5.4 We may also share personal data with your permission, so we can perform services you have requested. 

6. IS SHARED INFORMATION TREATED DIFFERENTLY? 

6.1 The Software Services may allow you to share the data you process using them with other users who may access that content and use it in compliance with our Terms of Service, where, for example, two users link their Canary7 user accounts.  

6.2 Any personal data associated with Canary7 Data may be gathered by third parties with whom you have chosen to share your Canary7 user account. If you do not want your Personal Information to be utilised by third parties, please do not make your Canary7 Data available to them. 

6.3 Whilst Canary7 accepts no responsibility for how other users may use information stored on your Canary7 user account you choose to share with them, we do require our users to agree that if they would like to use other users’ data, they may only use it for the purposes authorised by the relevant account holder. For example, where a Canary7 user has made an email address available for the purpose of identification and attribution, do not use that email address for advertising. We expect you to reasonably secure any Canary7 Data you have gathered from other users, and to respond promptly to complaints, removal requests, and “do not contact” requests from Canary7 or other Canary7 users. 

7. HOW IS MY INFORMATION SECURED? 

7.1 Canary7 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect personal data from unauthorised access, alteration, or destruction, maintain data accuracy and help ensure the appropriate use of personal data. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal data we hold, both during transmission and once we receive it. 

7.2 In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to duties of confidentiality. 

7.3 We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. 

7.4 No method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.  

8. HOW IS INFORMATION COLLECTED AND STORED GLOBALLY? 

8.1 Information that we collect will be stored and processed in the United Kingdom, the European Union and Pakistan in accordance with this policy. However, we understand that we have users from different countries and regions with different privacy expectations and local legal requirements, and we try to meet those needs and requirements.

8.2 We provide the same standard of privacy protection to all our users around the world, regardless of their country of origin or location, and we are proud of the levels of notice, choice, accountability, security, data integrity, access, and recourse we provide. We work hard to comply with the applicable data privacy laws wherever we do business.  

Additionally, we require that if our vendors or affiliates have access to personal data, they must comply with applicable data privacy laws, including signing data transfer agreements such as EU standard contractual clause agreements, where required by law. That includes our service providers based in Pakistan.  

8.3 In particular: 

8.3.1 we provide clear methods of unambiguous, informed consent at the time of data collection, when we do collect your personal data and if applicable. Where consent is not the applicable ground for processing, we will ensure that it has an appropriate ground for processing any personal data (including but not limited to contractual obligation or legitimate interest);  

8.3.2 we collect only the minimum amount of personal data necessary, unless you choose to provide more. We encourage you to only give us the amount of data you are comfortable sharing;  

8.3.3 we offer you simple methods of accessing, correcting, or deleting the data we have collected; and  

8.3.4 we provide our users notice, choice, accountability, security, and access, and we limit the purpose for processing. We also provide our users a method of recourse and enforcement.

You may also email us directly at privacy@canary7.com with the subject line “Data Privacy”. We will respond within the time frames required by applicable law.  

9.2 If you are a data subject based in the UK or European Union, you may have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk), or other competent supervisory authority of an EU member state if the Services are accessed outside the UK but from another EU member state. We would appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach such bodies so would ask that you please contact us in the first instance.

10. HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO COMPELLED DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENTS? 

10.1 Canary7 may disclose personal data or other information we collect about you to law enforcement in response to a valid subpoena, court order, warrant, or similar governmental order, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large. 

10.2 In complying with court orders and similar legal processes, Canary7 strives for transparency. When permitted, we will make a reasonable effort to notify users of any disclosure of their information, unless we are prohibited by law or court order from doing so, or in rare, exigent circumstances. 

11. HOW CAN I ACCESS MY OWN PERSONAL INFORMATION? 

If you’re already a user, you may access, update, alter, or delete your basic user profile information by editing your user profile or contacting us. 

Under certain circumstances, where you are a citizen of the European Union or UK, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data under GDPR.  

You have the right to: 

  • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. 
  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us. 
  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law.  
  • Please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.  
  • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms. 
  • Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.  
  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.  
  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. 

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.  

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. 

Where you exercise one of your rights, we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to exercise such rights. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. 

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated. 

12. DATA RETENTION AND DELETION 

Personal Data Generally  

12.1 We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.   

12.2 To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. 

12.3 We will keep your personal data for the term you have consented to, the contracted term between us where there is a legitimate interest for us to remain in contact with you, or for the legally required period, whichever is the longest. 

12.4 By law we have to keep basic information about any of our customers (including contact, identity, financial and transaction data) for six years after you cease being a customer for tax purposes. For the purposes of contract administration, we will also store all data as long as the contract you have placed through us endures and for the six year limitation period thereafter in case you raise any claims in relation to any Services you have purchased from us. This section does not apply to your personal data or Canary7 Data.  

12.5 In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. Canary7 will retain personal data on your behalf whilst either a) valid grounds for processing exist; or b) a maximum of 6 months following termination of your Canary7 user account (excluding Canary7 Data as noted below).  

12.6 If you would like to cancel your Canary7 user account and initiate deletion of your personal data, you may do so by contacting us at: privacy@canary7.com. As above, we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, maintain security, and enforce our agreements, but barring legal requirements, the time frame above will be observed for deletion. 

Canary7 Data 

12.7 We will endeavour to delete any Canary7 Data no later than 6 months after your account being terminated, or you deleting such Canary7 Data using your account. This is to synchronise deletion of such Canary7 Data with our standard data deletion cycles, and to facilitate the potential provision of a service to you (as our customer) that may permit the restoration of your account, or of accidentally deleted Canary7 Data, upon request and for payment of a fee. You should not that this is not guaranteed, and that Canary7 Data may be, irrevocably, deleted more quickly. 

13. HOW DO YOU COMMUNICATE WITH USERS? 

13.1 We will use your email address to communicate with you, if you’ve given us the OK, and only for the reasons you’ve permitted. Emails by default are not disclosed with other users. This will not change how we contact you, as we always utilise your primary email address. 

13.2 Depending on your email settings, Canary7 may occasionally send notification emails about new features, requests for feedback, important policy changes, or to offer customer support. We may also send marketing emails, including ones featuring, services and products offered by our commercial partners, but only with your consent. There will be an unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each of the marketing emails we send you.  

13.3 Our emails might contain a pixel tag, which is a small, clear image that can tell us whether or not you have opened an email and what your IP address is. We use this pixel tag to make our email more effective for you and to make sure we’re not sending you unwanted email. If you prefer not to receive pixel tags, please opt out of marketing emails. 

14. WILL YOUR PRIVACY POLICY CHANGE? 

If there are material changes to this policy or in how we use your personal data, we will prominently post such changes prior to implementing the change. We encourage you to periodically review this policy to be informed of how we are collecting and using your information. 

We keep this policy under regular review, for example, to reflect changing business circumstances and legal developments.

SCHEDULE 1 – GENERAL COOKIES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES POLICY (EXCEPTING CANARY7) 

1. WHAT SPECIFIC TECHNICAL DATA DO CANARY7 COLLECT? 

1.1 Canary7 collects and analyses traffic by keeping track of the IP addresses of our visitors and by collecting log file information. Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet service provider (ISP) or by another organisation. An IP address, by itself, cannot identify you personally (unless you are logged in whilst using our sites). However, when combined with other information, your IP address can be used to identify the computer you are using. In addition, Canary7 may use your IP address to estimate your geographic location. 

1.2 Our websites uses “cookies” and similar technologies, including HTML5 local storage on our websites and when providing the Services. A cookie is a file stored on your device that may be used to identify an individual as a unique user by storing certain personal preferences and user data. Canary7 uses cookies and other technologies to identify your device, identify authorised users of the Canary7 service, track affiliate referrals, complete online purchases through Canary7’s billing system, and similar Website monitoring activities. 

1.3 Canary7 may also use web beacons, small graphic images or other web programming code (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”), which may be included in our web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to our websites, to monitor how users navigate our websites, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.

1.4 Canary7 may also use embedded scripts on our websites and in connection with the provision of its Services. “Embedded scripts” are programming code designed to collect information about your interactions with a website, such as the links you click on, and may assist our customers in providing us with information used to provide the Services. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server, our customer’s web server, or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to our websites containing the embedded script, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter. 

1.5 Your web browser automatically sends information to every website you visit, including ours. For example, our server logs may receive and record information such as the pages you access on our websites, referring URLs, your browser type, your operating system, the date and time of your visit, and the duration of your visit to each page. 

1.6 Log file information may also include a user agent string, a series of characters automatically sent with your Internet requests that provide information necessary for smooth Internet communications such as the operating system and browser you used. Similar to an IP address, a user agent string, by itself, does not identify you personally. However, when combined with other information, a user agent string might be used to identify the computer originating a message. 

1.7 Canary7 may also request access to or otherwise receive information about your device location when you access our websites. Your location data may be based on your IP address. We use location data in connection with providing the Services and to help improve the Services. 

1.8 Canary7 may assign your computer or mobile device a unique identification number (Unique ID) based on log file information when you access our websites Canary7 may set a cookie on your device containing, amongst other things, the device’s Unique ID. Canary7 uses information generated from the Unique ID for purposes of improving our Services, primarily our ability to detect fraud. Canary7 does not share the Unique ID or any associated data with unaffiliated third parties.

2. WHAT COOKIES / TRACKING CODE ARE USED BY CANARY7? 

2.1 Cookies 

2.1.1 Canary7 uses cookies to make interactions with our service easy and meaningful. We use cookies (and similar technologies, like HTML5 local storage) to keep you logged in, remember your preferences, and provide information for future development of Canary7. A cookie is a small piece of text that our web server stores on your computer or mobile device, which your browser sends to us when you return to our site. Cookies do not necessarily identify you if you are merely visiting Canary7; however, a cookie may store a unique identifier for each logged in user. The cookies Canary7 sets are essential for the operation of our websites, or are used for performance or functionality. By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your computer or device. If you disable your browser or device’s ability to accept cookies, you will not be able to log in or use Canary7’s services. 

2.2 Google Analytics 

2.2.1 We use Google Analytics as a third party tracking service, but we don’t use it to track you individually or collect your personal data. We use Google Analytics to collect information about how our website performs and how our users, in general, navigate through and use Canary7. This helps us evaluate our users’ use of Canary7; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance. 

2.2.2 Google Analytics gathers certain simple, non-personally identifying information over time, such as your IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring and exit pages, time stamp, and similar data about your use of Canary7. We do not link this information to any of your personal information such as your user name. 

2.2.3 Canary7 will not, nor will we allow any third party to, use the Google Analytics tool to track our users individually; collect any personal data other than IP address; or correlate your IP address with your identity. Google provides further information about its own privacy practices and offers a browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics tracking. 

2.2.4 Certain pages on our site may set other third party cookies. For example, we may embed content, such as videos, from another site that sets a cookie. While we try to minimise these third party cookies, we can’t always control what cookies this third party content sets. 

2.3 Tracking 

2.3.1 “Do Not Track” is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not permit third-party services to track your activity on our site beyond our basic Google Analytics tracking, which you may opt out of. Because we do not share this kind of data with third party services or permit this kind of third party data collection on Canary7 for any of our users, and we do not track our users on third-party websites ourselves, we do not need to respond differently to an individual browser’s Do Not Track setting. 

2.3.2 If you are interested in turning on your browser’s privacy and Do Not Track settings, the Do Not Track website has browser-specific instructions. 

2.3.3 Please see our section on email communication to learn about our use of pixel tags in marketing emails.
