Shungham Information sprl (“SHUNGHAM”) is committed to protecting the privacy of users of its public websites and its client-only online services (collectively “the Sites”). The following outlines our privacy and data protection policy. This policy was last updated on 21st May 2018. Third party partners of SHUNGHAM, and other websites which you may access via links found on the Sites, have different privacy policies and are not subject to this privacy policy. We recommend that you read the privacy statement of each such website to find out how they protect your Personal Information.

Collection Of Personal Information

When you register at the Sites, we collect the information that you enter into forms found on the Sites, including personal details such as your name, address, email address and job title. When you visit the Sites, we may also collect web site usage information and information about your computer and internet connection, including your computer's IP address, the type and version of browser and operating system you use, your internet domain and, if you arrived at the Site via a link from another website, the URL of the linking page.

Use of Personal Information

We may use your Personal Information to: deliver our services pursuant to consent; or to notify you of relevant new products and features, or promotions from SHUNGHAM pursuant to a legitimate basis for SHUNGHAM’s marketing and business development efforts. Please note, that you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting privacy@shungham.com. For more information see “Individual Rights” below.

Disclosing Personal Information

We will not disclose your Personal Information to any third parties for marketing purposes. We may, exclusively for the purposes of providing services you have ordered or carrying out transactions you have requested, and only where and to the extent necessary to do so, share your Personal Information with business partners with whom we work for these serviced-delivery and transactional functions.

We may also disclose your Personal Information:

  • to the FiscalNote group companies, which share common ownership with Shungham,

  • as part of a corporate sale, merger, acquisition, or other transfer of all or part of our assets, including bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization or a similar transaction.

  • Pursuant to a subpoena, court order or other legal process or as otherwise required by law or to protect our rights or the rights of third parties

Cookies

We may use cookies. A cookie is a small file which is placed on the user's computer during a visit to the Sites. This file allows the user to move quickly and easily around our Sites. It is used to identify returning users and to identify subscribers and registrants (a registrant - and subscriber - will have the cookie linked to their email address as a way of identifying them). This means that if you are a registrant or subscriber, you will not have to login each time you visit. We may also use a cookie to track a user's sessions. We use this information to find out what site features are most popular so that we can develop the Sites in the light of our analysis of people’s usage. We may also use cookies and the information we collect to show you relevant content and advertising. You can delete cookies from your hard drive at any time. Bear in mind, though, that if you delete these cookies, your stored username and password will have to be re-entered when you log in again. You will be able to use the Sites even if you set your browser not to accept any cookies. However, certain features and content may not be available to you and you will have to login every time you visit.

Transfer of Personal Data Overseas

Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing the Sites and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way. For users in the European economic area, if we transfer your information to a country that does not have equivalent data protection legislation protecting the use of your personal information, we will comply with European Union law by using Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission or by adopting other means to ensure that adequate safeguards are applied.

Security

We will take reasonable steps to help maintain your personal information in a secure manner.

Data Retention

We retain the information we collect to support our service only as long as it is needed for our customer service and marketing initiatives, and after this time, that data is deleted.

Individual Rights

Individuals from the European economic area have certain rights under European law with respect to personal data, including the right to request access to, correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of your personal data. If you wish to exercise these rights, please reach out to us at privacy@shungham.com.

Changes to this statement

Due to changes in legislation and best practice or enhancements to functionality and content on the Sites we may make changes to our privacy policy and will reflect those changes in this statement, so you should check here from time to time.
