Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Pixelsource we have a few fundamental principles shown in the Privacy Policy.

At Pixelsource we ensure we meet our legal obligations as laid down by the Data Protection Act 1998.

Pixelsource operates several websites including www.blufinmedia.co.uk. It is Pixelsources policy to respect privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Pixelsource collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers make availabel, such as the browser type, language preference, referering site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Pixelsource's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pixelsources visitors use its website. From time to time, Pixelsource may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregrate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Pixelsource also collects potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Pixelsource does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personnaly-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Pixelsources websites choose to interact with Pixelsource in ways that require Pixelsource to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Pixelsource gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

Paying For Your Web Design Services

We have the facility to accept payment via various methods:

Aggregated Statistics

Pixelsource may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Pixelsource may monitor the most popular blogs on the pixelsource.co.uk website. Pixelsource may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Pixelsource does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Pixelsource discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Pixelsource's behalf or to provide services available at Pixelsource's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Pixelsource's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Pixelsource will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Pixelsource discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Pixelsource believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Pixelsource, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of a Pixelsource website and have supplied your email address, Pixelsource may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Pixelsource and our products.

We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Pixelsource takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Privacy Policy Changes

Pixelsource encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") comes into force across the European Union on 25th May 2018 and brings with it the most significant changes to data protection law in two decades. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age.

The 21st Century brings with it broader use of technology, new definitions of what constitutes personal data, and a vast increase in cross-border processing. The new Regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU; affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.

Our Commitment
Pixelsource are committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that we process, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. We have always had a robust and effective data protection program in place which complies with existing law and abides by the data protection principles. However, we recognise our obligations in updating and expanding this program to meet the demands of the GDPR.

Pixelsource are dedicated to safeguarding the personal information under our remit and in developing a data protection regime that is effective, fit for purpose and demonstrates an understanding of, and appreciation for the new Regulation. Our preparation and objectives for GDPR compliance have been summarised in this statement and include the development and implementation of new data protection roles, policies, procedures, controls and measures to ensure maximum and ongoing compliance.

How We are Preparing for the GDPR
Pixelsource already have a consistent level of data protection and security across our organisation, however it is our aim to be fully compliant with the GDPR by 25th May 2018.

Our preparation includes: -

Information Audit - carrying out a company-wide information audit to identify and assess what personal information we hold, where it comes from, how and why it is processed and if and to whom it is disclosed.

Policies & Procedures - revising data protection policies and procedures to meet the requirements and standards of the GDPR and any relevant data protection laws, including: -

Legal Basis for Processing - we are reviewing all processing activities to identify the legal basis for processing and ensuring that each basis is appropriate for the activity it relates to. Where applicable, we also maintain records of our processing activities, ensuring that our obligations under Article 30 of the GDPR and Schedule 1 of the Data Protection Bill are met.

Privacy Notice/Policy – we are revising our Privacy Notice(s) to comply with the GDPR, ensuring that all individuals whose personal information we process have been informed of why we need it, how it is used, what their rights are, who the information is disclosed to and what safeguarding measures are in place to protect their information.

Obtaining Consent - we are revising our consent mechanisms for obtaining personal data, ensuring that individuals understand what they are providing, why and how we use it and giving clear, defined ways to consent to us processing their information. We have developed stringent processes for recording consent, making sure that we can evidence an affirmative opt-in, along with time and date records; and an easy to see and access way to withdraw consent at any time.

Direct Marketing - we are revising the wording and processes for direct marketing, including clear opt-in mechanisms for marketing subscriptions; a clear notice and method for opting out and providing unsubscribe features on all subsequent marketing materials.

Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIA) – where we process personal information that is considered high risk, involves large scale processing or includes special category/criminal conviction data; we have developed stringent procedures and assessment templates for carrying out impact assessments that comply fully with the GDPR’s Article 35 requirements. We have implemented documentation processes that record each assessment, allow us to rate the risk posed by the processing activity and implement mitigating measures to reduce the risk posed to the data subject(s).

Processor Agreements – where we use any third-party to process personal information on our behalf (i.e. Payroll, Recruitment, Hosting etc), we have drafted compliant Processor Agreements and due diligence procedures for ensuring that they (as well as we), meet and understand their/our GDPR obligations. These measures include initial and ongoing reviews of the service provided, the necessity of the processing activity, the technical and organisational measures in place and compliance with the GDPR.

Special Categories Data - where we obtain and process any special category information, we do so in complete compliance with the Article 9 requirements and have high-level encryptions and protections on all such data. Special category data is only processed where necessary and is only processed where we have first identified the appropriate Article 9(2) basis or the Data Protection Bill Schedule 1 condition. Where we rely on consent for processing, this is explicit and is verified by a signature, with the right to modify or remove consent being clearly signposted.

Data Subject Rights
In addition to the policies and procedures mentioned above that ensure individuals can enforce their data protection rights, we provide easy to access information via our website of an individual’s right to access any personal information that Pixelsource processes about them and to request information about: -

 

Information Security & Technical and Organisational Measures
Pixelsource takes the privacy and security of individuals and their personal information very seriously and take every reasonable measure and precaution to protect and secure the personal data that we process. We have robust information security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction and have several layers of security measures, including: - SSL Encyrption on our website, robust customer account access controls, a robust password policy for all customer accounts, encryption of all personal data belonging to our customers and restriction of workstations to authorised personnel only.
