Who we share your personal information with

We will not sell or share your data with third party companies other than our data processors.

Under certain support circumstances Diplomat™ LMS customers we may need to pass data onto our software partner, for more details on this please see our Diplomat™ LMS Privacy Statement

Use of data processors

Data processors are third party companies that provide us services such as Web Hosting and Email Marketing. We have contracts in place with our data processors. This means that they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will not share your personal information with any organisation other than us. They will hold it securely and retain it for the period we instruct.

Sending data outside of the EEA:

LapSafe® will only send your data outside of the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) if we require to use a data processor.

If we do pass your data to a data processor outside of the EEA, we will make sure that it is protected in the same way as if it was being used in the EEA. We’ll use one of these safeguards:

  • Transfer it to a non-EEA country with privacy laws that give the same protection as the EEA.
  • Put in place a contract with the recipient that means they must protect it to the same standards as the EEA.
  • Transfer it to organisations that are part of the Privacy Shield. This is a framework that sets privacy standards for data sent between the US and EU countries. It makes sure those standards are similar to what is used within the EEA.

How long we keep your personal information:

We will keep your personal information for as long as you are a customer of LapSafe® Self-Service Solutions Ltd.

After you stop being a customer, we may keep your data for up to 10 years for one of these reasons:

  • To respond to any questions or complaints
  • Critical product updates

We may keep your data for longer than 10 years if it relates to a product where we give a lifetime warranty. We may also keep it for research or statistical purposes. If we do, we will make sure that your privacy is protected and only use it for those purposes.

If you complete a form on our website without becoming a customer, we will keep this data for 2 years for one of the following reasons:

  • For our information and future reference
  • To respond to any questions or complaints
