Your privacy

Your privacy is important to us. This privacy statement explains the personal data LGIT Smart solutions processes, how LGIT processes it and for what purposes.

Personal data we collect

LGIT collects data from you, through our interactions with you and through our products and services. You provide this data directly. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with LGIT and the choices that you make. We aim to collect the minimum personal data which does not include sensitive data. 

 

We only collect the following data from you:

  • name

  • surname

  • email

  • contact number

  • company

  • job title

  • gender

We also obtain the above data about you from third parties like Microsoft when required, and in line with a service we provide on behalf of Microsoft.

We DO NOT collect sensitive personal data such as: ID numbers, driver's license numbers, passport numbers, credit card numbers, personal bank account numbers, exact geo-location, and health information.  Payments to us are made via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) only.


You have choices when it comes to the data you share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you can decline. Many of our products and services require some personal data to provide you with a service. If you choose not to provide data required to provide you with a product or feature, you cannot use that product or feature. Likewise, where we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you, and you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the contract; or if this relates to an existing product or service you’re using, we may have to suspend or cancel it. We will notify you if this is the case at the time.
