Basis of personal data processing

The law imposes an obligation to determine which of the six defined processing grounds applies to specific personal data categories and to inform the user thereof.

If the basis for personal processing data is no longer applicable, we will immediately cease processing it.

In case the basis is changed, if legally required, the user will be informed of such change and any new base allowing the data processing to continue.

Processing of data resulting from contractual obligations 

When creating an account on our website by the user or him/her behalf, it is considered that the user is purchasing a product or service, or otherwise agrees to our terms and conditions, and a contract between the user and Lidertax Ltd is concluded.

To fulfill the obligations of this contract, it is necessary to process the information provided by you. Some of this information may constitute personal data.

We process data for the:

  1. verify identity for security reasons
  2. selling products to users
  3. ensure the provision of services
  4. provide suggestions and advice on products, services, and best use of resources from our website

We process the above information as part of a contract between the user and us or request to use it before entering into a legal agreement.

Besides, the data may be combined in a general manner and used to provide certain information, for example, to monitor our performance about a particular service we provide. The data used for this purpose will not identify individual users.

The data will be processed until the end or termination of the contract by either party according to its terms.

Processing of data with the user’s consent

There is no contractual relationship, for example, when the user visits our website or requests additional information about our activities, including employment opportunities and our products and services. The user agrees to our processing of information, including personal data. Wherever possible, we seek to obtain your explicit consent to the processing of your data, for example, by asking you to consent to the use of cookies. Sometimes consent is implicitly given, for example, when the user sends us an email to which she/he expects a response. Except where you consent to our use of your data for a specific purpose, we do not use such data in any way that would enable us to identify you. Data may be combined in a general way and used to provide certain information, for example, to monitor a particular page’s performance on our site. With the explicit user’s consent, we may, from time to time, share his or her contact information with selected colleagues providing services or products that we believe may be useful to the user. Data is processed on this basis until you withdraw your consent or when we can reasonably assume that such consent no longer exists. The user can withdraw consent at any time by sending us an e-mail at office@lidertax.co.uk. However, withdrawal of consent will prevent the user from continuing to use our website or our services.

Data processed for needs arising from a legitimate business

We may process data for our or user’s legitimate interests. When we process data on this basis, we carefully analyze:

  • whether the same goal can be achieved by other means.
  • whether or not processing (or lack of processing) may harm the user
  • whether the user would expect to process his/her data and whether this would be justified in his/her judgment

Users’ data may be processed on this basis for the purpose:

  • keeping records for the proper management of our company
  • respond to the user’s correspondence that he or she is waiting for a reply
  • protection and enforcement of the rights of either party
  • insurance or obtaining professional consultations required for business risk management
  • protect the user’s interests where we believe we have to do so

Processing of data resulting from a legal obligation

Like any entity, we are subject to the law. Sometimes we have to process user data due to a statutory obligation. For example, we may be obligated to provide information to legal authorities if they request it or have the appropriate authorization, such as a search warrant or court order.

Exceptional cases of use of data provided by users

The data provided, taking into account that they will be made available to third parties

Our website allows us to publish information for reading, copying, downloading, or use by others. Examples include

  • posting messages on our forum
  • image tagging
  • click on the icons next to another user’s message to express approval, disapproval, or acknowledgment

When publishing private personal data, the user has to decide for himself the privacy level of the persons who will be able to use it. Lidertax Ltd will not use this information except by consenting to its display or sharing. The company will store it and reserves the right to use it in any way in the future. Once the information is made available in the public domain, we have no control over it, and under no circumstances are we responsible for what third parties may use it. In justified cases, where there is no legal basis for retaining such data, we may, in our sole discretion, agree to your request to delete your published personal data. Any request should be sent to office@lidertax.co.uk.

Complaints about content on our website

We try to moderate user-generated content, but we cannot always do so as soon as the content is published. Any complaints about content on our site will be reviewed. Where we believe it is reasonable or required by law, we will remove the incompatible content. Freedom of speech is a fundamental right, so we will have to judge whose liberty has been violated: the user-recipient or the user who has published offensive content. In the case of unfounded complaints, we reserve the right not to respond to them.

Data on the payment method

Payment details are never collected or transmitted by us or through our website or in any other way. Our employees and contractors never have access to such data. At the time of payment, the user is redirected to a secure site on PayPal or another reputable payment service provider. The site may resemble our website but is not controlled by us.

Job applications 

Once we have received the user’s job application data, we may store it for up to three years if we decide to contact the user at a later date. In the case of employment, we periodically collect information about employees and their work throughout the job. This information will only be used for purposes directly related to employment. Upon employment termination, we will retain employee records for six years, after which time the data will be destroyed or deleted.

Sending messages to our support team

When the user contacts us by phone, through our website, or by email, we collect the user’s data to respond. The inquiries and responses are recorded to increase our business efficiency. We store personal information related to the user’s messages, such as your name and email address, to keep track of your communication to provide a high-quality service.

Complaints

When we receive a complaint, we record all the user’s information to enable us to resolve the problem. If a complaint reasonably requires us to contact another person, we may provide the other party with some of the user’s complaint information. We do this as little as possible at our sole discretion as to whether and what information is provided. We may also compile statistics that present data obtained from this source to evaluate the level of service we provide, but not in a way that would enable us to identify the user or any other person.

Information on affiliates and business partners

There is information provided to us by you as an affiliate of us or our business partner. They allow us to recognize visitors referred by the user and to attribute referral commissions to the user. They also include information that will enable us to transfer commissions to the user. This data is not used for any other purpose. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality and terms and conditions of our cooperation, counting on these rules’ reciprocity by our affiliates and partners.

Data from third parties

Although the user’s personal information is not disclosed to any third party (except as set out in this policy) through the website, we sometimes receive data indirectly created from third parties’ personal information from the services we use. We may disclose the user’s personal information through any services or products offered, but only if there is a legitimate interest.

To help combat fraud, we share information with credit reference agencies as long as it relates to customers who instruct their credit card issuer to cancel payments without giving us a valid reason and allowing us to return the money.

Processing of data outside the European Union

Our websites are hosted on servers in the UK. We can process users’ e-mail addresses outside the European Union to create a marketing campaign exclusively for the European Union market. The internet activity of users may be transferred to the USA via the Google Analytics Tool – please refer to Google’s privacy policy for more details. We do not process any other data outside the European Union. Otherwise, the user will be informed about this.
