How we use your personal data 

We want to be clear with you about how we use your data, so in this section we talk about the personal data that we may process and, in the case of personal data that we did not obtain directly from you, we’ll tell you where we got your data and the purposes for which we may process your data; finally, and very importantly, we’ll explain the legal bases of the processing which applies to us and you. 

The Personal Data That You Provide: 

  • User activity on LinkedIn (when liking or commenting on other Founder’s Hub members’ posts) 

You may choose to note provide your Personal Data; however, if you do not provide your Personal Data, you may not be able to use the functions offered by the Service. Although logging into the extension with your Founder’s Hub login details will be required, these details will not be stored by the extension itself. 

We will obtain from the Founder’s Hub Amp It Up program: 

  • Name 
  • LinkedIn URL 
  • Company Name (via LinkedIn) 
  • Company LinkedIn 
  • Founder’s Hub Profile Image if you include it in your Founder’s Hub profile 
  • Points, a measure of your activity with other Founder’s Hub members. 

If you submit Personal Data to us, we will only use it for the purpose you requested or the purpose which it is collected, which is outlined below. Please contact Us if you have any questions about the use of your Personal Data. You can also consult the Privacy Policy on Founder’s Hub, found here, for further privacy information regarding Amp It Up itself. We will use your information: 

  • To provide our Service 
  • To personalise and improve your experience 

Your Consent 

By using our service, installing this extension and providing us with your Personal Data, you consent to the use, transfer and processing of the Personal Data as set forth in this Privacy Policy. These activities will take place both in the UK and in the Republic of North Macedonia, with Standard Contractual Clauses in place to ensure that any and all use of Personal Data is done to at least the standards set out by the GDPR. 

Data sharing 

We may disclose your personal data to any member of our group of companies (this means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and all its subsidiaries, together known as “Group Companies”) insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes, and on the legal bases, set out in this policy. 

We may disclose your personal data to our insurers and/or professional advisers insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes of obtaining or maintaining insurance coverage, managing risks, obtaining professional advice, or the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedures. 

As you would expect, in addition to the specific disclosures of personal data set out above, we may disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary for compliance with a binding legal obligation. 

International transfers of your personal data 

In this section we provide information about the circumstances in which your personal data may be transferred to countries that do not fall under the requirements of Article 45 of the GDPR regarding the adequacy of the level of protection. We, and our other Group Companies, have offices and facilities in the Republic of North Macedonia where your personal data may be processed. Transfers to the Republic of North Macedonia will be protected by appropriate technical and administrative safeguards included in our Terms of Contract for data processing agreed between us and our Macedonian counterparts, which of course include the standard contractual clauses required under GDPR (as per Article 46 of the GDPR). 

Retaining and deleting personal data 

This section sets out our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data. Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes. 

Notwithstanding the other provisions of this section, we may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person. 

Automated processing 

We do not currently use automated processing and decision making as part of Amp It Up. 

The rights of data subjects 

In this section we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in our summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights. 

Your principal rights under data protection law are: 

  • The right to be informed 
  • The right to access 
  • The right to rectification 
  • The right to erasure 
  • The right to restrict processing 
  • The right to object to processing 
  • The right to data portability 
  • Rights related to automated decision-making including profiling 
  • The right to complain to a supervisory authority 
  • The right to withdraw consent. 

The Right to be Informed. This is the right of Data Subjects to know details regarding the processing of their data and how we acquired their data, this information is included in this Privacy Policy. 

The Right To Access. You have the right to confirm as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data upon request and within one month of verification of your identity (we may extend the time within which we must provide the information by a further two months if the request is particularly complex, or if there are numerous requests and we will let you know if this is the case). The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. 

The Right to Rectification. You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed. If the request is accepted by us, the rectification will be completed within one month (may be extended by us by a further two months if complex). We will use all reasonable endeavours to notify any third party with whom we have shared the data of any rectifications made. 

The Right to Erasure. In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. However, there are exclusions to the right to erasure. We will use all reasonable endeavours to notify any third party with whom we have shared the data of any actioned erasure requests. 

The Right to Restrict Processing. In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Where processing has been restricted, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest. We will use all reasonable endeavours to notify any third party with whom we have shared the data of any restriction placed on the processing of your data. 

The Right to Object to Processing. You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for certain tasks. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. 

The Right to Data Portability. To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is: 

  • consent; or 
  • that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract; and 
  • such processing is carried out by automated means. 

You have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others. 

Rights related to automated decision-making including profiling. If applicable, we will ensure that individuals are able to:  

  • Obtain human intervention 
  • Express their point of view  
  • Obtain an explanation of the decision and challenge it.  

You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to our Data Protection Officer. As of the latest Privacy Policy update, automated decision-making is not a part of Amp It Up.

Right to Complain. If you consider that our processing of your personal data infringes data protection laws, you should first contact us. If you are dissatisfied with the outcome, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a Supervisory Authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the UK, the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
