GDPR Compliance


What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a new EU Regulation to significantly enhance the protection of the personal data of EU citizens and increase the obligations on organisations who collect or process personal data.

Personal Data

Some of the information we collect may be classified as "personal data" under European Union (EU) law as it is information relating to an individual (e.g. a small business owner, sole trader, a partnership, a company director, a beneficial owner, a trustee, a professional contact etc).

We collect information on businesses and business professionals. This is classified as “Commercial Data” and following are some examples:

Company and business professional contact information, including name, job title, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, domain names, and industry sector.

Detailed company profiles and statistics, including number of employees, technologies used.

Background information regarding company management, such as beneficial ownership/persons of significant control, the educational and career histories of company principals.

Business compliance information from public source government and professional records, media and business publications.

GetProfiles do not collect any information in relation to a European resident’s date of birth, race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health, sex life or sexual orientation, genetic or biometric data.

With respect to the processing of personal data relating to data subjects located in the European Economic Area (including the United Kingdom) by GetProfiles on behalf of the Customer, please request for an executable Data Processing Addendum via email to privacy(@)getprofiles.io

Legitimate Interest

The legal bases for Getprofiles's processing of personal data are primarily that the processing is carried out under the ground of GetProfiles’s “legitimate interest”. GetProfiles legitimate business interest is the supply of commercial data (and the marketing of our business). The purpose is to licence or sell professional business contact information to authorized partners or organisations for marketing and data management purposes, to know who they are doing business with and to better understand organization, industries and markets.
