PRIVACY POLICY

Introduction

This Privacy Notice applies to the personal data of consumers that is collected or used by Thriam Lites or its affiliates or subsidiaries. Thriam Lites appreciates the interest you have shown in our company, products and services by visiting our websites, www.thriamled.com or related communication channels, including, but not limited to, our social media pages and/or channels and blogs (together "Thriam Lites Pages"). This Privacy Notice applies to all the personal data Thriam Lites collects when you interact with Thriam Lites, such as when you visit our websites, when you use the products or services offered by Thriam Lites, when you purchase products of Thriam Lites, when you subscribe to newsletters, when you contact customer support etc.

This includes, without limitation, all online and offline collections of all types of personal data. However, some Thriam Lites Pages collections work with special kinds of data (for example, medical data), which require a somewhat different privacy notice. Whenever and wherever that is the case, Thriam Lites will make it clear that the privacy notice concerned is different from this general Privacy Notice.

We ask you to share your personal data with us for purposes including, but not limited to:

Different ways we collect your Personal Data

Thriam Lites may also obtain your personal data if you are a customer of a Thriam Lites partner. Personal data may also reach us when we purchase another company of which you are a customer. If you do not want Thriam Lites to use your personal data that has not been provided by you, you may let us know at any time by contacting us at privacy@thriamled.com.

Sharing your Personal Data with others

We may share your personal data with service providers, business partners and other third parties, in accordance with applicable law.

For example, Thriam Lites may sell you a product or offer you a service in a joint marketing effort with another company (Business Partner). We will let you know that such a relationship exists and who these companies are prior to processing your data for such joint marketing efforts.

If we are required by law to obtain your consent, or otherwise believe that your consent is appropriate in the circumstances, we will obtain your consent before we share your personal data.

The agreements with these Business Partners will limit the purposes for which your personal data can be used and disclosed, and will require your personal data to be adequately safeguarded.

Thriam Lites will disclose personal data only in conformance with this Privacy Notice and/or when required by law.

From time to time, Thriam Lites may sell a business or a part of a business to another company. Such a transfer of ownership could include the transfer of your personal data directly related to that business to the purchasing company.

Your rights

Once you have provided us with your personal data, you have reasonable access to that information so that you can update, modify or, if legally possible, delete it. For My Thriam Lites you may do this by logging into your account and accessing your "personal settings", where you can also change your preferences relating to how Thriam Lites communicates with you. You may also make these requests regarding your personal data by contacting Thriam Lites at privacy@thriamled.com.

You will also be provided with an opt-out opportunity when necessary and we will comply with any local legislation.

We encourage you to keep your personal settings and personal data complete and current.

Your choices

We want to know you better so we can serve you better while at the same time respecting your choices about how we use your personal data.

Your personal data may be transferred from your home country to other Thriam Lites companies, in different locations around the world, which may communicate with you about Thriam Lites products, services or special offers that you may be interested in. If local law requires it, we will ask for prior consent to transfer your personal data outside of your geographic region.

If you do not want us to send you personalised offers or information, you can let us know by checking the appropriate box on the registration form or reply card, or by selecting "opt-out" on emails you receive.

Where local law requires it, we will ask you to "opt-in" or affirmatively consent to the processing of your personal data. For example, where local law so requires, we will only send you newsletters if you have subscribed to them. Similarly, where local law so requires, we will ask you to "opt-in" before using sophisticated profiling techniques.

You may have previously provided us with your personal data through reply cards, via our call centres or in some other manner. Your decision not to register now will not affect the personal data you have already provided to Thriam Lites. Of course, you will always have the option to unsubscribe from any targeted communication from Thriam Lites or change your personal profile information.

These websites may operate independently from Thriam Lites, and may have their own privacy notices, statements or policies.

    Thriam Lites strongly recommends that parents take an active role in supervising the online activities of their children. If you believe we have collected personal data from a person who is under the age of 16, please contact us at  privacy@thriamled.com.
