At Cambridgeshire Software House (Maths in Motion) we take the protection of our customers and visitors data very seriously. We only collect what we need to, and we never share this with third parties.
Any personal data which we do hold and is accessed on a company computer is protected by password to prevent general access or a data breach. This data is held on our central file server which is protection by encryption and firewall.
Our software is held on highly secure servers in a remote data centre and is accessed via The Cloud. These servers are firewall and password protected and we do not keep records of customer passwords so are unable to access any sensitive data which is held within school user accounts.
This policy has been updated in May 2018 to reflect new GDPR legislation which comes into power.

The personal data we hold
The personal data which we collect from you may include your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. Depending on why you contact us, the information we hold may also include details about your place of work, job title and position.
We may collect personal data when you visit our website and will do so when you order a product, raise an enquiry with us or if you provide feedback. We will also collect your personal details if you raise an enquiry about being a Centre of Excellence or reseller.
If you contact us by telephone, by email, submit an enquiry or if you write to us, the content of those communications may also include personal data and we may keep a copy of that correspondence on our records.
How we use personal data
When we collect personal information from you, it will be held on our records and used for the proper administration of our business, including where relevant, for the purposes of providing our products and services to you (or the organisation which you represent), to tell you about matters which are relevant to those products and services and to deal with any enquiries or complaints which you may raise.
We may also use information for other business purposes such as market research activities that we may undertake on occasion and also for administering any competitions or other promotions that we may run.
We may also from time to time, use your personal information to contact you about promotional offers for other products and services which we think may be of interest. We may in some cases, also seek your feedback. However, we will provide you with an option within every promotional communication to opt out of receiving any further communications of this nature or you can contact us at any time to ensure that you do not receive such promotional information. Customer services can be contacted on +44 (0) 1480 301 201 or by emailing email@example.com .
Any information we collect from you through correspondence with us, whether via e-mail, over the phone or by written letter, will only be used to address the matters within that correspondence. If this involves referring such correspondence to a third party to ensure customer service, your personal information will only be disclosed to the point necessary to address your query or concerns and we will make clear that the information is to be treated confidentially.
From time to time we might also appoint external third parties to help us with our business functions for example, external consultants and sub-contractors. We therefore may make your data available to those entities if reasonable to do so as part of our usual business practices.
We take reasonable steps to protect the confidentiality of the personal information supplied by you. However, the transmission of information via the internet can never be guaranteed as entirely secure and therefore any transmission of data is at your own risk.
We may disclose personal information where required to do so by law, to exercise our legal rights or defend ourselves against legal claims and may share information with law enforcement authorities to investigate or prevent illegal activities being committed over our network. We may also monitor user and network traffic for site security purposes and may use any information, including personal data to prevent any unauthorised attempts to tamper with our website or cause damage to our property. We also reserve our rights to disclose your personal information either where you have given us explicit legal written consent to do so or otherwise where we may do so in accordance with applicable data protection legislation.
