Data Protection Notice Addendum for Clients

Clockwise Marketing is a Data Processor to its business-to-business and business-to-consumer clients – because we work with personably identifiable data in the implementation of your marketing campaigns.

Clockwise Marketing wants to process the Subject Data that you pass to us fairly and transparently.  We will only use that data for the purposes of your marketing objectives in order to optimise campaign success for your business.

To us, fairness is:

  • using information in a way that people would reasonably expect
  • thinking about the impact of our processing and if it will have unjustified adverse effects on 1) Data Subjects, 2) you as Controller, or 3) your business
  • ensuring that you are fully aware of the Sub-Processors we use
  • fully understanding the security measures in place with our sub-processors and communicating this with you
  • giving you the freedom and opportunity to instruct us on how we use your Subject Data
  • abiding by your preferences and instructions
Where and how is data held?

How can I ensure that my website visitor’s data is secure?

WordPress is our most used web platform and CMS.  Some usual ways in which a standard WordPress site might collect user data:

  • user registrations
  • comments
  • contact form entries
  • analytics and traffic log solutions
  • any other logging tools and plugins
  • security tools and plugins

All data is stored with Memset on EU Servers, but if you are collecting visitor data and your website does not have a security certificate – you are not GDPR compliant. Clockwise recommends purchasing an SSL certificate.


How does Clockwise ensure data is secure?

To maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct usage of information, we monitor and adjust our physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your Subject Data while in our care, or in the care of any outside suppliers with whom we may contract to process your data on our behalf. Such Data Processors and Sub-Processors will be contractually bound to process only in accordance with our instructions and to maintain technical and organisational controls in compliance with GDPR and other EU legislation. Data is stored on servers within the UK, EU, or on Amazon Web Servers that are certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield.


How do we notify you if there is a security breach?

In the event of a security breach that may affect you, we’ll notify you of the breach without undue delay after becoming aware of it.  We will provide a description of what happened and later report the action we took in response.


What is our policy on holding and deleting your data?

When we are working on marketing campaigns or one-off projects for clients – we only use the data that you supply, for the purposes of the campaign or project – and the data remains the property of the client.  We do not share, sell or pass any data on to third parties for any other purpose than that of your campaign.  We will either delete your data immediately after the campaign or hold it for your next campaign – as per your instructions.


Your Consent

By providing personally identifiable information to Clockwise, or by entering into a contract with Clockwise that requires such processing, you, the Client are agreeing that you accept this Data Protection Notice and that Clockwise is authorised to process the data supplied.

No data transfer will be undertaken that is outside the strict scope of the purposes stated in this policy, or that will materially degrade the security of the Subject’s data or the Data Subject’s rights and in any event the security provisions will be compliant with the applicable Data Protection Laws.
