Finally…

The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly. Contact info [at] aworkbook.com.

The personal information that we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security and the law.

The GDPR comes into force 25th May 2018 and r epresents a revision of the data protection regulation enforced across Europe. To comply with this regulation and be open and transpar ent this document aims to clarify our data management practices with relation to our software and services.
Information that falls under GDPR legislation is “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.”. This precludes most information we process, but given the broad definition could include the following data items which we hold:

• Email addresses which through we operate in a B2B environment may include personal accounts.
• Individuals names.
• Individuals regional location (Country – no full addresses)
• Business store locations / delivery addresses which, through we operate in a B2B environment, could include personal addresses.

This information comes from our sign-up process, where the user is explained the information we will hold and its usage. Secondary data sources (e.g. Business store locations), are provided by our clients to whom we clearly indicate how we process any data provided. Given the very limited scope of the data we process outlined above in relation to the GDPR we consider the information we carry to be low risk.

We communicate our privacy information, the data we hold and how we process it in this full document which is made available to clients, is published on our website and via summary to our direct users at point of registration.
Every individual has a right to know what information we hold on them. We can provide a plain text formatted electronic document identifying information held on an individual subject to a proper request by the individual concerned or authoritative body with sufficient legal authority. We will remove an individual’s information from our systems within 30 days subject to a proper request by the individual concerned or authoritative body with sufficient legal authority. We do not profile individuals. We will also comply to any other request covered by an individual’s rights as identified by the GDPR systems within 30 days subject to a proper request by the individual concerned or authoritative body with sufficient legal authority.
Any request for information, or deletion of data held on an individual should be made in writing to Hark Solutions Ltd, Unit 2, Cropmead, Crewkerne, Somerset, United Kingdom, TA18 7HQ. It should state clearly your request, who you are and how we can contact you. We will process requests within 30 days of receipt.
We process individual details for the purposes of securing corporate information and restricting access to materials provided by our clients. We make individual’s details available to a client where the individual has requested information specifically belonging to that client. We do not make names and emails generally available to our clients or any other 3rd party. Where information is supplied directly by one our clients it is used solely for the purposes of order capture and fulfilment and other directly related activities.
Our sign-up process makes use of a three-stage agreement confirmation; On-line registration, email confirmation and final password creation. As part of this process the individual is made aware of what data is captured and how it is used. This is reduced to a single step for single sign-on business integrated email directories (i.e. Microsoft Active Directory), which by definition this precludes personal email details. For data supplied by our corporate clients, a copy of this document is made available via our website and GDPR is covered in our contracts.
We do not specifically deal in any age restricted materials. Our client data is restricted and access is limited to individuals authorised by our clients. We do not operate social media or forum based activity for individuals in general.
We log inbound requests to our systems and have processes in place to react to suspicious activity. In the unlikely event that we discover a data breach, we will take steps to notify relevant clients and individuals as soon as practical. The data we hold we consider low risk, as it does not represent a risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals and as such we are not duty bound to report any such breaches to the ICO (Information Commissionaires Office).
We take the security of our systems for both our client business data and the limited amount of individual data we hold seriously. Our systems are designed form the group up with security and privacy in mind.
The company does not have a dedicated DPO due it size and small amount of low risk information held by its systems. Please send any enquires regarding GDPR compliance in writing to the registered company address: Hark Solutions Ltd, Unit 2, Cropmead, Crewkerne, Somerset, United Kingdom, TA18 7HQ.
