We share personal data with our clients who are interested in matching the procurement characteristics of the data subjects and their companies with offers of goods and services.

We share personal data with our clients and they tend to be technology companies, value-added resellers and distributors.
The personal data which is processed and shared during the course of a commercial agreement between us and a client may be retained and processed by either party or their successors or assigns after the termination of the commercial agreement.
Lawful Basis for processing Personal Data
EngageTech relies upon its own and its clients’ ‘Legitimate Interests’ as the lawful basis for processing personal data.
It is in ours and our clients’ legitimate interests to process personal data for the purposes of:
- Operating and improving our/their websites;
- Marketing (including direct marketing) and delivering our/their business services;
- Communicating with you and our/their other clients and suppliers;
- Detecting and preventing activity which is contrary to our/their legitimate interests;
- Other activities which may be or become legitimate from time to time and of which we/they shall make the relevant data subjects aware at the relevant time.
We rely upon ‘Legitimate Interests’ and not some other legal basis for processing personal data because:
- We only process data relating to company representatives (no sole traders or unlimited partnerships);
- We only process data relating to companies which have not registered on the Corporate Telephone Preference Service;
- We only process data relating to companies and company representatives who have not previously objected to our processing of their personal data.
- We do not process data relating to companies or company representatives who manage legal or insurance claims;
- The data we process is very unlikely to affect the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subjects because we only ever process information that is in the public domain or that has been given to us freely by the data subject or their company;
- We and our clients only use the processed data for business to business (B2B) marketing and not for marketing to individual consumers;
- We and our clients only process data for directs marketing by human interaction and not for marketing by automated telephone call or recorded message;
International Data Transfer
Our clients operate around the world, which means that your personal data may be transferred to and processed in countries other than the UK. However, we require that our clients shall only transfer shared personal data outside the UK if they first ensure that:
- The transfer is to a country approved as providing adequate protection pursuant to Article 45 of the UK-GDPR; or
- There are appropriate safeguards in place pursuant to Article 46 of the UK-GDPR; or
- One of the derogations for specific situations in Article 49 of the UK-GDPR applies to the transfer.
Retention of Personal Data
Personal data processed for direct marketing purposes is only retained by us if it continues to be accurate and useful and only for so long as we need it to provide our business services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or enforce agreements. Data retention periods are set out in our Data Retention Policy and reviewed from time to time.
We cannot determine a maximum retention period for our clients but our standard commercial agreement requires them to comply with data protection legislation and retain the data which we share with them only for so long as it remains accurate and for so long as they have a legitimate interest in keeping it.
