Privacy Policy
Privacy Policy for We Grow Startups

At We Grow Startups Ltd, accessible from www.wegrowstartups.co, one of our main priorities is the privacy of our visitors. This Privacy Policy document contains types of information that is collected and recorded by wegrowstartups.co and how we use it.

If you have additional questions or require more information about our Privacy Policy, do not hesitate to contact us. 

What Data We Collect and Store

We are a Data Controller of your information.
We Grow Startups legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Information we collect and the specific context in which we collect the information:
We Grow Startups needs to perform a contract with you
You have given We Grow Startups permission to do so
Processing your personal information is in We Grow Startups legitimate interests
We Grow Startups needs to comply with the law
We Grow Startups will retain your personal information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies.
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain data protection rights. If you wish to be informed what Personal Information we hold about you and if you want it to be removed from our systems, please contact us.
In certain circumstances, you have the following data protection rights:
The right to access, update or to delete the information we have on you.
The right of rectification.
The right to object.
The right of restriction.
The right to data portability
The right to withdraw consent
Where we are provided data that is not directly identifying and that was not originally collected by We Grow Startups, we may not be able to stop processing or erase your data, even if you request us to. This is because we may be unable to re-identify you through only the data that we hold, and we will not seek to collect other personal data just in order to do so. 
If you wish to exercise any of the above rights, please contact us using the details set out below.
The Types of Data We Process
Personally Identifiable Information 
We only collect directly identifiable personal data when you email us for the purposes of fulfilling our services to contact you. This information is never shared with a third party unless otherwise agreed by you or required by law. 

Indirectly Identifiable Personal Information
The other type of personal data we collect might not be able to directly identify you, but it could still be possible if it were associated with other pieces of information.  
Examples of indirectly identifiable personal information are cookies and IP addresses. A cookie is a small text file which is stored on your computer and is used to help you navigate and interact with a site and its pages.  An IP (Internet Protocol) address is an identifier of your computer when it connects to the web and is fundamental to your interaction with the internet.   
You can control your cookie settings by managing your preferences on our Cookie banner notice. 
Whether it is directly identifiable or not, we treat your personal data in exactly the same way, and will only ever use it for the specific purpose for which it has been provided.

What We Process Your Personal Data For

For Communication
When you provide your personal information by contacting us, we will only use that information for the specific purpose for which it was provided. We rely on a customer relationship management platform Hubspot to store, log and track email communications.
