1. What information Hobart UK collects from you and how we use it

This privacy notice tells you what to expect when Hobart collects personal information. It applies to information we collect about:

• people who use our services, e.g. people who purchase products and make information or availability enquiries, place a service call, renew or initiate service contracts, validate warranty and purchase parts and accessories.

• Complainants and other people who notify us under the Data Protection Act;

Some of the information that we collect may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.). Hobart UK uses this information for the purposes of pursuing its ordinary course of business as described in more detail below.

2. Legal basis for processing your information

If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only where we need the personal information to fulfill a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to fulfill a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information)

Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information reliant on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the contact details provided under the "How to contact us" heading below.

3. How long we retain your personal information

Hobart UK retains the personal information collected on the web site for as long as necessary to provide the services, products and information you request or as permitted by applicable law and in line with our data retention practices.

4. Who we share your personal information with

In general, we will use the personal information we collect from you only for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice above or for purposes that we explain to you at the time we collect your personal information. However, we may also use your personal information for other purposes that are compatible with the purposes we have disclosed to you, such as

• Our group companies, third party services providers and partners who provide data processing services to us (for example, to support the delivery of, provide functionality on, or help to enhance the security of our Website), or who otherwise process personal information for purposes that are described in this Privacy Notice or notified to you when we collect your personal information.

• Any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;

• A potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your personal information only for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Notice;

Any other person with your consent to the disclosure.

5. Choices you have about how Hobart UK uses your information

You have the following data protection rights:

• If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of your personal information, you can do so at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided under the "How to contact us" heading below.

• In addition, you can object to processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information or request portability of your personal information. Again, you can exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details provided under the "How to contact us" heading below.

• You have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the "unsubscribe" or "opt-out" link in the marketing e-mails we send you. To opt-out of other forms of marketing (such as postal marketing or telemarketing), then please contact us using the contact details provided under the "How to contact us" heading below.

• Similarly, if we have collected and process your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

• You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. You can read more about these rights here – https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/is-my-information-being-handled-correctly/

• If you need to make a complaint about the way we have processed your personal information, you can contact the statutory body which oversees data protection law – www.ico.org.uk/concerns.

We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws. Requests should be sent by email to privacy@hobartuk.com. This request will be processed and completed within 30 days of receipt.

6. How Hobart UK protects your information

We work hard to protect your personal information. Hobart UK will not sell personal information collected from its web site to mailing list brokers without your express consent. All information is stored within a secured database that is not accessible to the outside world. Resumes are stored on file systems that are not publicly accessible. All Hobart UK servers are protected behind both hardware and software firewalls. Low-level access to all information is restricted to authorized support personnel only.

This site contains links to other web sites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you. We cannot control these third-party sites, which may collect personal information from you. When you follow a link and leave this site, you do so at your own risk.

7. How you can contact Hobart UK

Hobart tries to meet the highest standards when collecting and using personal information. We encourage people to bring to our attention any circumstances in which they think that our collection or use of information is unfair, misleading or inappropriate. We would also welcome any suggestions for improving our procedures and we are happy to provide any additional information required.
