ABOUT US

A-Point Partners and we can be contacted regarding this privacy policy at info@apointpartners.com. Any personal information processed by A-Point Partners is controlled by us and so we are considered the data controller of your personal information.

DATA PROTECTION LAWS

We have to comply with the Data Protection Act no 2472/1999, Law no 3471/2006 and from 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 when keeping personal data about you when we obtain, use, disclose or otherwise process such data.

ABOUT THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We are committed to protecting your personal information and respecting your privacy. This policy explains about the personal information that we may collect from you, use and otherwise process in connection with your relationship with A-Point Partners. In particular, we explain the kinds of personal information that we may collect from you, how we collect it, what we use it for and who we may share your personal information with. By "personal information" we mean information about you where you are, or could be, identified.

CATEGORIES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may collect personal information from you such as information about how you use our services and about how you use access to our website. This may include information that you provide to us directly or through companies or agents we work with, as well as information which we collect when you use our services.

HOW WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION

We may collect personal information about you when you contact us about using our services, when you apply or provide your CV to us via our job application portal or when you use our website. WHY WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION We use your personal information to conduct our business. We also use your personal information to: i) provide any other services you have asked us to provide; ii) comply with our security obligations.

WHO ELSE MAY HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION

To best serve you, we may share your personal information with service providers that provide support services to us. Service providers are third parties who perform services on our behalf. They are contractually restricted from using your information in any manner other than in helping us to provide you with the products and services available from A-Point Partners. We may also share your personal information with Coaching Assembly for the purpose of sourcing the right applicant for a job vacancy we may have. We may also disclose your personal information to a third party when you ask us to do so or when we believe it is required by law.

COUNTRIES HAVING ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION

Our servers, storing and keeping your information secure, are located in the European Economic Area.

COLLECTING YOUR INFORMATION LEGALLY

Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data, however, if for any reason we would require your consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time by contacting us at info@apointpartners.com. We are able to legally collect and use your personal information either because: i) you have provided us with your consent to do so as explained above; and/or ii) collecting and using your personal information is necessary for us to carry out our legitimate business interests in order to carry out our service.

RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION

We will only retain your personal information for as long as it is necessary to provide our services or to process your application, or to keep you up to date with A-Point Partners as a firm. Processing is therefore necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, or where we are required to do so by law. YOUR RIGHTS You have the right to:

● be informed about the personal information we collect from you and use, which this privacy policy seeks to do;
● obtain confirmation from us that your personal information is being collected and used by us and to access the personal information held about you by us;
● have your personal information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete at any time;
● erasure, or the right to be forgotten, which means you can request deletion or removal of any personal information we hold about you at any time;
● block or suppress us collecting and using your personal information, which means we can continue to store your personal information but we cannot further collect or use it in any way;
● obtain and reuse any personal information we hold about you for your own purposes across different services, which allows you to move, copy or transfer your personal information easily from A-Point Partners to another place notified by you to us in a safe and secure way without hindrance to the usability of your personal information; and
● object to us collecting or using your personal information where this is based on a legitimate interest or the performance of a task in the public interest. To make any requests as listed above, please contact us at info@apointpartners.com. We will confirm any requests relating to your rights above within one month of receipt of your request, or within two months of receipt of your request where this request is more complex.

WITHDRAWAL OF YOUR CONSENT

If you are under 16, do not use or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number or email address.

BUSINESS TRANSITIONS

As we continue to develop our business, we may undergo a business transition such as acquiring another company, merging with an existing company, or selling a portion of our assets. In such transitions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. In the unlikely event that A-Point Partners or substantially all of its assets are acquired or enter a court proceeding, you acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that your personal information can continue to be used as set forth in this privacy policy.

POLICY CHANGES

This policy replaces all previous disclosures we may have provided you about our information practices. We reserve the right to change this policy, and to apply any changes to information previously collected, as permitted by law. If there are material changes to this policy or our information practices change in the future, we will notify you by posting the policy changes on our website.

If you would like to make a complaint about the way we have collected or used your personal information, please contact us at info@apointpartners.com.
