How and why we use your data
Data protection law means that we can only use your data for certain reasons and where we have a legal basis to do so. Here are the reasons for which we process your data:
Delivering a service or product (legal basis: consent)
You have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose, such as providing you with updates about an application or receiving marketing emails.
Improving MantisNLP offerings (legal basis: legitimate interests)
Testing features and content, managing landing pages, heat mapping our site, traffic optimization and data analysis and research, including profiling and the use of machine learning and other techniques over your data and in some cases using third parties to do this.
Marketing purposes (legal basis: consent)
Sending you emails and messages about new features, products and services, and content.
Here is what each of these “legal bases” mean:
We need to process your data in order to comply with our obligations under a contract we have signed with you. This includes the steps we take towards signing a contract with you, even if these steps don’t actually result in the signing of a contract. This includes steps like conducting calls to understand your problem (for which we may record video or transcripts), or exchanging emails.
Processing your data is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, provided those interests are not outweighed by your rights and interests. These legitimate interests are:
- Providing services to you that you have requested.
- Gaining insights from your behaviour on our website or in our app
- Delivering, developing and improving MantisNLP website
- Enabling us to enhance, customise or modify our services and comms
- Determining whether marketing campaigns are effective
- Enhancing data security
In each case, these legitimate interests are only valid if they are not outweighed by your rights and interests
