While this Statement applies to personal information generally, the local laws, rules and regulations of jurisdictions that are applicable to ECRM ("Local Laws") may require standards which are stricter than this Statement and, in such event, ECRM will comply with applicable Local Laws. Specific privacy policies may be adopted to address the specific privacy requirements of particular jurisdictions. Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or service providers. Irrespective of which country your personal data is transferred, we would only share your personal data under a "need to know" basis. In these circumstances we will, as required by applicable law, ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected by organizational, technical, contractual and/or other lawful means.
In the European Economic Area and Switzerland ("EU"), "Personal Data" is defined very broadly and includes any information about a natural person, who can be identified, directly or indirectly, from data that we hold about them or from data that is combined with other information. EU data protection law requires us to have a legal basis before processing any Personal Data about you. The legal basis for us processing your Personal Data for the above purposes may be because: (i) you have provided your consent; (ii) it is necessary to for the performance of a contract with you; (iii) the processing is necessary for our compliance with a legal obligation; or (iv) the processing is in our legitimate interests. Personal Data regarding individuals who reside in a member state of the EU is controlled by ECRM Europe BV and processed on its behalf by ECRM. To the extent provided by applicable law, you may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us, or object at any time on legitimate grounds, to the processing of your Personal Data. In some circumstances, withdrawing your consent to ECRM's use or disclosure of your Personal Data will mean that you cannot take advantage of certain ECRM products or services.
We may transfer your Personal Data outside the EU to the United States or any country that ECRM or its service providers may have operations. Such countries do not have the same data protection laws as the EU. While the European Commission has not given a formal decision that such countries provide an adequate level of data protection similar to those which apply in the EU, any transfer of your personal information will be subject to a European Commission approved contract (as permitted under the General Data Protection Regulation) that are designed to help safeguard your privacy rights and give you remedies in the unlikely event of a misuse of your personal information. To obtain a copy of the such safeguards please contact us.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation you have a number of important rights free of charge. In summary, those include rights to:
For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) on individuals rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.
If you would like to exercise any of those rights, please:

The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live, or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred.
In compliance with this Statement, ECRM commits to resolve complaints about the privacy, collection and use of personal data. Persons with inquiries or complaints about this Statement are encouraged to first contact ECRM.
This Statement may be amended from time to time, consistent with the requirements of applicable law. A notice will be posted by ECRM on ECRM’s Internet website located at https://ECRM.MarketGate.com when this Statement is changed.
