Privacy Policy

Introduction

Enwisen is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this fundamental obligation, Enwisen is committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information (sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information” or “PII”) that has been collected online.

Generally, our intent is to collect only the personal information that is provided voluntarily by online visitors so that we can offer information and/or services to those individuals, entrepreneurs, businesses, organizations or offer information about employment opportunities. Please review this Privacy Statement to learn more about how we collect, use, share and protect the PII that we have obtained.

Consent

By using our website www.enwisenglobal.com, you hereby consent to our Privacy Policy and agree to its terms.

1. Collection and use of personal information

1.1. What information we collect

We obtain personal information about you if you choose to provide it — for example, to contact mailboxes or to register for certain services. In some cases, you will have previously provided your personal information to Enwisen (if, for example, you are a former employee/client). If you choose to register or login to an Enwisen website using a third party single sign-in service that authenticates your identity and connects your social media login information (e.g., LinkedIn, Google, or Twitter, Facebook) with Enwisen, we will collect any information or content needed for the registration or log-in that you have permitted the social media provider to share with us, such as your name, email address, contact number or location. Other information we collect will depend on the privacy settings you have set with your social media provider, so please review the privacy statement or policy of the applicable service.

When you register or submit personal information to Enwisen we will use this information in the manner outlined in this privacy statement. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards.

1.2 The legal grounds we have to use your personal information

Enwisen generally collects only the personal information necessary to fulfill your request. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.

When we process your personal information, we will rely on one of the following processing conditions:

  • Performance of a contract: This is when the processing of your personal information is necessary in order to perform our obligations under a contract;
  • Legal obligation: This is when we are required to process your personal information in order to comply with a legal obligation, such as keeping records, legal compliance, taxation or for other purposes or providing information to a public body or law enforcement agency;
  • Legitimate interests: We will process information about you where it is in our legitimate interest in running a lawful business to do so in order to further that business, so long as it doesn’t outweigh your interests;
  • Your consent: In some cases, we will ask you for specific permission to process some of your personal information, and we will only process your personal information in this way if you agree to us doing so. You may withdraw and/or modify your consent at any time by contacting Enwisen at [email protected]
Examples of the ‘legitimate interests’ referred to above are:
  • To offer information and/or services to individuals who visit our website or offer information about employment opportunities.
  • To prevent fraud or criminal activity and to safeguard our IT systems.
  • To meet our corporate and social responsibility obligations.
  • In some cases, the personal data that we collect will also include special categories of data, such as diversity-related information (including data about racial and ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs and other beliefs of a similar nature, trade union membership, and data about sexual life and sexual orientation), or health data and data about alleged or proven criminal offenses in each case where permitted by law.

1.3 Automatic collection of personal information

In some instances, Enwisen and its service providers use cookies, web beacons, and other technologies to automatically collect certain types of information when you visit us online, as well as through emails that we may exchange. The collection of this information allows us to customize your online experience, improve the performance, usability, and effectiveness of Enwisen’s online presence, and measure the effectiveness of our marketing activities.

An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate will be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes.

1.3.4 Web beacons

A web beacon is a small image file on a web page that can be used to collect certain information from your computers, such as an IP address, the time the content was viewed, a browser type, and the existence of cookies previously set by the same server. Enwisen only uses web beacons in accordance with applicable laws.

You have the option to render some web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies. The web beacon may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address but cookie information will not be recorded.

1.3.5 Location-based tools

Enwisen may collect and use the geographical location of your computer or mobile device. This location data is collected for the purpose of providing you with information regarding services that we believe may be of interest to you based on your geographic location, and to improve our location-based products and services.

Enwisen websites may include functionality to enable sharing via third-party social media applications. Any personal information that you provide via such social media applications may be collected and used by other members of that social media application and such interactions are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide the application. We do not have control over, or responsibility for, those companies or their use of your information.

Enwisen understands the importance of protecting children’s privacy, especially in an online environment. Our sites are not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age of 13.

If you opt-in for services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will try to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.

4. Your rights

If Enwisen processes personal information about you, you have the following rights:
  • Access and correction: You have the right to access that data. This is sometimes called a ‘Subject Access Request’. If we agree that we are obliged to provide personal information to you, we will provide it to you free of charge. Before providing personal information to you, we may ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interactions with us that we can locate your personal information.

You can make a request or exercise these rights by contacting Enwisen at [email protected] and we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable law and professional standards.

5. Data security and integrity

Enwisen has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Despite Enwisen’s best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. To the best of our ability, access to your personal information is limited to those who have a need to know. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information.

We also make reasonable efforts to retain personal information only for so long i) as the information is necessary to comply with an individual’s request, ii) as necessary to comply with legal, regulatory, internal business or policy requirements, or iii) until that person asks that the information be deleted. The period for which data is retained will depend on the specific nature and circumstances under which the information was collected; however, subject to requirements of i)-iii) above, personal information will not be retained for more than 10 years.
