Whenever we process data for these purposes, we will ensure that we always keep your personal data rights in high regard and take account of these rights. In all cases, we have taken care to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) through an impact assessment.
You have the right to object to this processing if you wish. If you wish to exercise this right, please contact us using the information below.
Please bear in mind we may need to retain some, minimal information in order to respect your request to be excluded from processing. We may also have a legal obligation to retain some information, as required by local laws in specific countries.
Access to your information?
Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf: We may pass your information to our third party service providers such as, agents, and other associated organizations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf. However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the Solace Solution network for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from us about our services, then you can use the unsubscribe link in each email communication or contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be removed.
We will not contact you for marketing purposes by email, phone or text message unless you have given your prior consent or we believe that there is a legitimate interest.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.
