(Last updated on June 5, 2023)
Welcome to the Datatonic website at https://www.datatonic.com/ which includes all subpages and subdomains, present and future (the “Website”). We are delighted that you have chosen to visit us and use the Website.
Key Elements of this Policy
Here are the key elements of this Policy so you can know the important parts right away to make an informed decision about your consent for our collection, use and disclosure of your personal data. By submitting this personal data to us via the Website, you consent to such collection, use and disclosure. You can find the details in the rest of the Policy.
|Personal data we collect from you but only with your consent||What we do with it||Third parties we share it with|
|Contact information – your name, email address, phone number, job title and company name||Respond to your inquiry||Companies that provide communications services and infrastructure for the Website, and companies that provide CRM services|
|Event information – your name, email address, phone number, job title and company name||Register you and communicate with you about the Datatonic event you are interested in||Companies that provide communications services and infrastructure for the Website|
|Candidate information – your name, contact information (email address, phone number and mailing address) and any personal information you submit in your C.V. or cover letter||Determine your suitability to join the Datatonic team and communicate with you about your job application||Companies that provide online job application services|
Before we get started with the details, here are a few terms we think you should know as you read this Policy.
“Data Protection Laws” refers to the laws that are designed to protect your personal data and privacy in the place where you live. These include: (1) the “GDPR”, the European Data Protection Law which stands for “General Data Protection Regulation”, with the official name Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council; (2) “PIPEDA” (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), which is the Canadian Data Protection Law that applies to our activities in Canada; (3) Quebec’s an Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector as amended by Law 25 (the “Quebec Privacy Act”) that applies to our activities in Quebec; (4) the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) which applies to our activities in the United States in certain circumstances; and (5) the “UK GDPR” which applies to our activities in the United Kingdom; please note that when this Policy refers only to the “GDPR”, this includes the UK GDPR as applicable. Datatonic is committed to adhering to all these applicable Data Protection laws.
“Personal data” – this is information we collect from you or about you and which is defined in the GDPR as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.” It can be as simple as your name or your email, or something more complicated like an online identifier (usually a string of letters and / or numbers) that gets attached to you. Under PIPEDA, the Quebec Privacy Act and the CCPA, the equivalent concept is “personal information”, which is roughly the same. Any mention of “personal data” in this Policy shall also mean personal information.
About Us and Contacting Us
Datatonic Ltd. (“Datatonic”), who owns and operates the Website, is a registered corporation located in London, United Kingdom, with an office at the address listed below. Where this Policy refers to “Datatonic,” it may refer to Datatonic and / or its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, partners, principals, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively “Representatives”), depending on the context. Any reference to “we”, “our”, or “us” in this Policy shall also refer to Datatonic. In this Policy a website visitor or user may be referred to as “you”.
Under the GDPR, Datatonic is a “data controller”. That means we collect personal data directly from you and determine the purpose and means of “processing” that data. “Processing” is a broad term that means collection, use, storage, transfer or any other action related to your personal data; it is used in this Policy in that way. Under the Quebec Privacy Act, Datatonic is an “enterprise,” and Datatonic is an “organization” under PIPEDA.

Datatonic automatically collects certain information using the “Third-Party Analytics Program” Google Analytics to help us understand more about our Website visitors and users and how they use the Website, but none of this information identifies you personally, except via an alphanumeric string. For example, each time you visit the Website, we automatically collect (as applicable) your IP address, browser and computer or device type, access times, the web page from which you came, the web page(s) or content you access, and other related information. We use information collected in this manner only to better understand your needs and the needs of Website visitors and users in the aggregate.

How We Protect Your Personal Data
We have implemented very strict technical and organisational procedures for ensuring that, by default, only personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose of the processing are processed by us. These procedures prevent your personal data from being lost; or used or accessed in any unauthorised way.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable supervisory authority of a suspected data security breach where the Data Protection Laws requires us to do so, and within the time frame required by the applicable Data Protection Law.
Datatonic uses only industry best practices (physical, electronic and procedural) in keeping any data collected (including personal data) secure. In addition, we use third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to operate the Website, and these third parties have been selected for their high standards of security, both electronic and physical. For example, Datatonic uses Google who have very strict security protocols, for hosting of the Website and related data, and storage of data including personal data. Please note we also use Medium for hosting of our blog, but no personal data is collected by Medium that Datatonic has access to.
Finally, all information, including personal data, is transferred with encryption using Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) or Transport Layer Security (“TLS”), robust security standards for Internet data transfer and transactions. You can use your browser to check Datatonic’ valid SSL security certificate on the Website.
Transfer of Your Personal Data Outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) and the U.K.
For our European users, we endeavour to keep your personal data inside the EEA or the U.K. (as applicable). However, certain of our data processors (and Datatonic) are in other countries where your personal data may be transferred. However, these countries are limited to countries with particular circumstances that protect your data, specifically:
- Canada. We transfer personal data to our operations in Canada, but Canada has been determined to have an “adequate level of protection” for your personal data under European data protection law.
- The United States. Your personal data is only transferred to companies in the United States that: (1) have signed agreements with us or have informed us that they are GDPR-compliant; and (2) have concluded the Standard Contractual Clauses for the transfer of personal data outside the EEA and the U.K.
That’s it! You have the right, however, to refuse to have your data transferred outside the EEA or the U.K. Please contact our Privacy and Data Protection Officer to make that request. Please note that making this request may prevent you from being able to use certain portions of the Website.
Supervisory Authorities and Complaints
If you are in the EEA or the U.K., under the GDPR you have the right to make a complaint to the appropriate supervisory authority. If you are not satisfied with the response received or the actions taken by our Privacy and Data Protection Officer, or if you would like to make a complaint directly about Datatonic’ data practices, we invite you to contact the supervisory authority in your country.
If you are in the U.K., you should contact the Information Commissioner’s Office who is the supervisory authority. You can reach them in a variety of ways, including by phone (0303 123 1113 in the UK) and mail (Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF). If you are in France, you should contact the Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés which is the supervisory authority there. Their contact information can be found here.
The full listing of all Data Protection Authorities (the supervisory authorities) across the EEA can be found here.
If you are in Canada and you are not satisfied with the response received or the actions taken by our Privacy and Data Protection Officer, you can make a complaint to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. Instructions on how to do so can be found on their website. In Québec you can make a complaint to the Commission d’accès à l’information, with the instructions for contacting them on their website.
Your personal data will only be kept for as long as it is necessary for the purpose needed for that processing. For example, we will only retain your Candidate information for as long as you continue to be a candidate for a position with us.
Datatonic does not use any automated decision-making processes in providing the Website.
