Special Man Solution website is owned by Special Man Global Solution LTD, which is a data controller of your personal data.

We have adopted this Privacy Policy, which determines how we are processing the information collected by Special Man Solution, which also provides the reasons why we must collect certain personal data about you. Therefore, you must read this Privacy Policy before using Special Man Solution website.

We take care of your personal data and undertake to guarantee its confidentiality and security.

Personal information we collect:

When you visit the Special Man Solution, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the installed cookies on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically collected information as “Device Information.”

Moreover, we might collect the personal data you provide to us (including but not limited to Name, Email, Phone, Request Type, Messages, etc.) during project request form submission and contact form submission to be able to fulfil the agreement.

Why do we process your data?

Our top priority is customer data security, and, as such, we may process only minimal user data, only as much as it is absolutely necessary to maintain the website. Information collected automatically is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding website usage. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in such a way that it would identify any particular user of the system.

You can visit the website without telling us who you are or revealing any information, by which someone could identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. If, however, you wish to use some of the website’s features, or you wish to receive our newsletter or provide other details by filling a form, you may provide personal data to us, such as your email, first name, last name, city of residence, organization, telephone number. You can choose not to provide us with your personal data, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the website’s features. For example, you won’t be able to receive our Newsletter or contact us directly from the website. Users who are uncertain about what information is mandatory are welcome to contact us via [email protected].

Data Security

We take the security of your personal information very seriously and have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect it from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, and loss. We regularly review and update these measures to ensure that we maintain the highest level of security for your data.

Some of the measures we use to protect your data include:

  • Encryption: We use industry-standard encryption technologies to protect the transmission of personal information between your device and our servers.

  • Access control: We restrict access to personal information to only those employees, contractors, and agents who need it to perform their work and are bound by confidentiality obligations.

  • Regular security audits: We perform regular security audits to identify and address potential vulnerabilities in our systems.

Despite these efforts, no security measures are perfect, and we cannot guarantee that your personal information will never be accessed, used, disclosed, or lost. If you become aware of any security incidents, please notify us immediately so that we can take appropriate action.

Retention Period for Personal Data:

We are committed to retaining your personal data only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. The retention period for personal data may vary depending on the type of data and the purposes for which it was collected.

Generally, we will retain your personal data for the duration of your relationship with us and for a reasonable period thereafter to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Once the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, we will securely delete or anonymize it to prevent unauthorized access or use.

The retention periods for specific categories of personal data may be influenced by factors such as the nature of the data, the sensitivity of the information, and any applicable legal requirements. We regularly review our retention practices to ensure that we only retain personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected.

Legal disclosure:

We will disclose any information we collect, use or receive if required or permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
