It is our commitment to collect, retain, process and dispose of your information in line with international data protection best practice and in accordance with all legal obligations.

This privacy policy will explain how Martello Security handles the information we collect from you when you use our website.

This privacy policy was last updated on 28th April 2020.

Data We Collect

Martello Security may collect any or all of the following data:

  • Personal Information: Your full name, phone numbers and email addresses.
  • Professional Information: The organisation you represent and your role within it.

How We Collect Your Data

You directly provide Martello Security with most of the data we collect. We collect and process data when you:

  • Register online or purchase or subscribe to any of our products.
  • Voluntarily complete a survey or provide feedback via our website or email.
  • Voluntarily register for any newsletter via our website or email.

How We Use Your Data

Martello Security collects your data so that we can:

  • Administer any account you may have with us.
  • Process any purchase or subscription you initiate with us.
  • Contact you about our products or services.

When we process any purchase, we may send your data to, and also use the resulting information from, credit reference agencies to prevent fraudulent purchases.

How We Handle Your Data

We securely store your personal information only at data centers within the European Union (“EU”). Any personal information we hold is encrypted using industry recommended standards.

Personal information you provide when subscribing to any of our newsletters or information lists is retained until such times as you unsubscribe. When you unsubscribe we retain information to ensure you stay unsubscribed.

Personal information you provide when registering interest in a product or service is retained for up to 18 months. Should you not reconfirm your interest or become a customer within 18 months your data will be removed from our information systems.

Personal data provided as part of a contract with Martello Security will be retained for up to 7 years after the contract has ended.

In some cases, we may need to keep personal data for longer than specified above. Examples of this would include system back-ups required for potential business continuity and disaster recovery purposes, or reatining records in accordance with the laws of Ireland.

Suppliers and Your Data

Personal data that we hold may be transferred to, stored and processed outside the European Union (“EU”) by our third party suppliers. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EU who work for one of our suppliers. This will only occur where the other country’s data protection laws have been approved as adequate by the European Commission or where equivalent or better safeguards are in place.

Some of our service providers may explicitly state that they transfer personal information outside the EU. Below are examples of this and the legal basis for transfer.

  • Google Analytics - EU/US Privacy Shield.
  • Amazon Web Services - EU/US Privacy Shield.
