Some of the services we use may process, store or have access to your data to help us run our service to you. We have no control over their processing or data storage however they are all reputable and data protection focussed companies that have been vetted by us. The companies we use are as follows;
Our data is protected through our Third Party Providers who have better resources to ensure server security is kept upto date.
The controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) And The UK Data Protection Act (DPA) is:
105 Orchard Avenue
The Data Protection Officer of the controller is:
Mr Paul Macey
105 Orchard Avenue
Phone: 01202 259187
Any data subject may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer directly with all questions and suggestions concerning data protection.
GDPR and DPA give you the following rights to do with the data we store on you.
Put simply you can ask our data controller why we store your information and what we use it for. However, that is openly discussed above.
You have a right of access to that data to look at it. In the case of your main support and billing account, you have full access to that by logging into our client area. In the case of the logs we keep when you access our site you can ask us to provide you with a copy of them. Please contact our data protection officer from the ticketing area of your client account.
If any of the information we hold about you is incorrect you have the right to have it amended. In most cases this is possible by logging into our client area you can correct it yourself. Anything you cannot edit yourself you can ask our data controller to edit for you. Obviously, we will need to verify your identity before we edit any of your information. Please contact our data protection officer from the ticketing area of your client account.
You have the right to have all data we have on you erased. This in the case of Radikls Ltd would mean you closing your account with us and terminating of all your services, as without that basic data we can not provide the services. There is some data that cannot be erased even on request as we are required to keep it by statutory law in the UK. EG financial transactions and invoices which we are legally obliged to store for 5 Years after the end of the financial year they occur in. Statutory law trumps any privacy law in most countries. Please contact our data protection officer from the ticketing area of your client account if you wish to have your data erased.
If you want to restrict us from processing information that is incorrect until it is corrected. If you close your account with us but would like us to still let you have access to the data for your accounting, in this case, it would be stored but not processed. When processing is unlawful and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead. If we no longer need your personal data but you require the data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim. Please contact our data protection officer from the ticketing area of your client account if you wish to have data processing restricted.
The right to data portability allows you to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. It allows you to move, copy or transfer personal data easily from Radikls Ltd to another company in a safe and secure way, without hindrance to usability. Please contact our data protection officer from the ticketing area of your client account for a portable copy of your data.
You have the right to object to the processing of your data for the following purposes; Processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest/exercise of official authority (including profiling); Direct marketing (including profiling); and Processing for purposes of scientific/historical research and statistics.
Radikls Ltd do not currently process data in any of these ways.
We need to process your personal data to offer our services as a web host/design company in the UK. Your legal name and legal address are required to comply with UK tax laws which supersede data protection laws. Your contact details such as email or telephone numbers are required to be able to contact you urgently to maintain the security of your site and our servers which store your data and the data of our other clients.
