3. ARE YOU A CONTROLLER OR A PROCESSOR?
(a) We are a Controller in respect of any Client Data (Personal Data about our Clients and prospective clients and their key contacts) we hold.

5. HOW WILL YOU USE DATA ABOUT CLIENTS AND PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS AND WHAT IS YOUR LAWFUL BASIS FOR DOING SO?
5.1 We hold and process Client Data as a Controller, which means we must have a ‘lawful basis’ for doing so. We have set out how we use Client Data along with our lawful basis below:
(i) TO PROVIDE OUR SERVICES: to provide you with the GoReport® Software (which may include support and maintenance of your account on the GoReport® Software). Such processing is necessary for the performance of the contract for the provision of our services or taking steps necessary to enter into a contract.
(ii) ADMINISTRATION AND DISPUTE RESOLUTION: We may also need to process Personal Data about you to meet our internal administration requirements and for matters such as dispute resolution. Such processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interest, which is in this case is to function as a business. We consider such use will go no further than a Data Subject would reasonably expect; is likely to align with the Data Subject’s interests (by enabling us to provide a sustainable business model) and is unlikely to be detrimental to the fundamental rights and freedoms of you as a Data Subject.
(iii) MARKETING: from time to time we might contact our clients by email or telephone about updates to our services, new features or functions or new products we are bringing out. These communications may be tailored on the basis of what we think your interests are (from looking at data collected using cookies and from looking at your past transactions). We will always include the right to opt out in any such correspondence.
Our lawful basis for such processing is that it is necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interest: namely to continue as a business. We consider such use will go no further than a Data Subject would reasonably expect; is likely to align with a Data Subject’s interests and with the easy opt out option, is unlikely to be detrimental to the fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject.
(iv) RICS LICENSING SCHEME: If you are using any RICS scheme materials, we may also need to use your Personal Data to check that you are a current member of the RICS Licensing Scheme. We are unable to provide you with such materials if you are not a member, as such this processing is necessary to enable us to perform the contract you signed up to with us.
(v) AGGREGATE DATA: We may collect aggregate data about Permitted Users and about Client transactions or interactions with us. Any such data will be anonymised and used for business and market research purposes.
5.2 We may use Prospective Client Data for marketing purposes or to take steps to enter into a contract if you have asked us to do so.
(i) MARKETING BY ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS: If we have obtained your information in the course of negotiations or discussions about our products, services and/or events, we may contact you from time to time by email about updates to our services, new features or functions or new products we are bringing out. These communications may be tailored on the basis of what we think your interests are. (We might try to work this out by collecting information about you from cookies or other similar technologies or on the basis of our communications with you). We will always include the right to opt out in any such correspondence. Our lawful basis for such processing is that it is necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interest; namely to grow as a business.
In any other circumstances, we will only contact you by email (or other electronic communications) if we have obtained your consent. In which case that will be our lawful basis for such processing. Our communications may be tailored in a way we think may be of interest to you (we might try to work this out by collecting information about you from cookies or other similar technologies).
(ii) MARKETING BY TELEPHONE: As with most businesses, we want to reach out to find new customers who we think might be interested in what we do. In order to do this, our sales team might carry out some research online and if we think we’ve found a good fit, we might contact you by telephone to ask if you are interested in having a chat about our services. In any such call we will clearly identify who we are and the nature of the call and if you tell us you don’t want to hear from us again, we will respect that. We regard such processing as being necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interest: namely to continue as a business. We consider such use will go no further than a Data Subject would reasonably expect; is likely to align with a Data Subject’s interests and with the easy opt out option, is unlikely to be detrimental to the fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject.
6. HOW WILL YOU USE PERMITTED USER DATA?
6.1. We will only use Permitted User Data in the following ways:
(i) TO PROVIDE OUR SERVICES: we will use the contact information and details provided to us by our Client for the purpose of providing you with access to GoReport® Software (which may include support and maintenance of your account on the GoReport® Software). We are doing this solely on the basis of our Client’s instructions and accordingly, we are acting as a Processor in this regard.
(ii) UPDATES AND NEW FUNCTIONALITY COMMUNICATIONS: From time to time we may use the contact details which we receive from our Clients when they enter into a contract to receive our services to send emails to Permitted Users regarding updates to our services and new functionality available in the GoReport® Software. We tell our Clients about this marketing service when before they enter into an agreement with us, and give them the right to opt out at that point. If our Client doesn’t opt out, we promptly send an email to each Permitted User to notify them that we have been given their details and that they will receive such communications unless they opt out. Each communication will include an easy opt-out option. We are acting as a Controller in this regard. We are relying on the fact that such processing is necessary to achieve our legitimate interest of providing an up-to-date viable survey solution for our Clients and their Permitted Users.
If you would like further details on this use of your Personal Data, or if you would like to tell us not to use your Personal Data for that purpose, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
6.2. We may collect aggregate data about how a Permitted User uses our software. This data will be anonymised and will not identify a Permitted User.
7. HOW WILL YOU USE PERSONAL DATA UPLOADED AS PART OF A SURVEY (CUSTOMER DATA)?
7.1 We act as a processor in respect of any Customer Data you upload, which means we are processing the data only on the basis of our Client’s instructions. Except for technical processes like storage or maintenance purposes, we don’t access or make any decisions about uses of Customer Data.
7.2 We may collect aggregate data from the information uploaded, but this data will be anonymised so that an individual may not be identified from that data.
8. WILL YOU DISCLOSE PERSONAL DATA TO ANYONE ELSE?
8.1 The purpose of the GoReport® Software is to enable you to share information with your customers and other Permitted Users. If our Client has requested it, the data which you upload on to the GoReport® Software may be accessible by other Permitted Users.
8.2 We may disclose Personal Data to third parties, for the following purposes:
9. WHAT SECURITY PROCEDURES DO YOU HAVE IN PLACE?
9.1 As fellow professionals, we understand the importance of confidentiality, and that’s why we incorporate electronic, physical and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the data you upload on to the GoReport® Software. For instance:
(a) Each of our staff members is required to enter into and abide by a strict confidentiality agreement in respect of how it handles your content. We’ll never divulge the contents of your reports without your explicit instruction, and we will treat your reports and any other data you upload as strictly confidential.
(b) Robust security measures are in place to protect the information you upload on to our software. All data is hosted on a UK cloud server, which offers a high level of security. Our secure infrastructure includes encryption, firewalls and access control, and our current hosting company is accredited by the following industry standard bodies:
- • ISO 27001:2005 (Information Security)
- • ASEA 3402 Type II (Service Organisation Control)
- • ISO 14001:2002 (Environmental Management)
Learn more about our hosting companies’ privacy policies, here and here
(c) From time to time we may use certain third party services to help us manage our data, including CRM and accounting software. We will only ever work with companies which are contractually bound to implement high standards of security measures. If you would like further information about what third party processors we use, please contact us at email@example.com.
9.2 There are some steps you can take to help make sure that your data is protected. For example:
(a) if you are contacting us with a query or complaint, only ever give us your work details rather than your personal contact details;
(b) if you are sending any financial details or sensitive information, consider sending it in separate emails or encrypted, password protected documents;
(c) make sure that you keep any passwords associated with your GoReport® account secure; and
(d) if you are dealing with sensitive information (such as names and addresses) in a report, you might want to consider entering such data by text rather than through dictation. This will minimise the need to transfer your data to third parties.
10. WHERE DO YOU STORE THE PERSONAL DATA YOU COLLECT?
