You may choose not to provide personal information to Teneo by refraining from, among other things, submitting information directly to us. However, if you do not provide information when requested, we may not be able to provide you with information about our services and business opportunities.

PROTECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION

We secure personal information against unauthorized or unlawful processing, and against accidental loss, destruction or damage by appropriate technical, physical and organizational measures.

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION

We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

We sometimes share personal data among the group of companies owned by Teneo. This may involve transferring your personal information to other countries (including the U.K., and other countries, inside and outside the European Economic Area) where Teneo companies or other third parties operate and process your personal information.

How long will you use my information for?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

Rights and Choices of California residents under the CCPA

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that Teneo disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).

    • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that Teneo delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for the services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for services or a different level or quality of services.

As a result of sharing your personal data with the above parties, information we hold about you may be transferred to other countries. This may include countries outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and countries with laws that have not necessarily been determined to provide an adequate level of protection for the processing of personal data under the laws of the EU or other jurisdictions.

When we, or our permitted third parties, transfer your personal data outside the EEA , we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and the means of transfer  provide adequate safeguards.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

We seek to ensure that we only keep your personal data for the longest of:

  • the period necessary for the relevant activity or services;
  • any retention period that is required by law; or
  • the period in which litigation or investigations might arise in respect of the services.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

If you would like to know more about the retention periods we apply to your personal data, please contact us at GDPR@teneo.com

  • object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes;
  • in some circumstances, request the restriction of processing of your personal information;
  • in some circumstances, request the transfer of your personal information to another party.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

However, we may refuse to provide access or charge a few for access if the relevant data protection legislation allows us to do so, in which case we will provide reasons for our decision as required by the law.

Collecting your personal data

When Teneo provides professional services, we process information about you and/or your business to enable us to provide our services to you or our clients and to meet our legal or regulatory obligations, when we have a valid business reason to do so.

We also process personal data of individuals who are not directly our clients (for example, employees, customers or suppliers of our clients). See the section “Individuals whose personal data we obtain in connection with providing services to our clients” for additional information.

Because we provide a wide range of services to our clients or other third parties, we process many categories of personal data.

  • any other information relating to you (or other third parties) which you provide to us for the purpose of receiving our services.

For certain services or activities and when permitted by law or with an individual’s consent, we may also process special categories of personal data.

It is important you provide us with all necessary information and documents as this affects our ability to provide services to you.

Generally, we collect personal data from our clients or from a third party acting on the instructions of the relevant client.

We secure personal information against unauthorized or unlawful processing, and against accidental loss, destruction or damage by appropriate technical, physical and organizational measures.

We also take measures to ensure confidentiality, meaning that only people who have a need to know and use the personal information can access it.

Sharing Your Information

We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

We sometimes share personal data among the group of companies owned by Teneo.

Data Retention

How long will you use my information for?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
