Privacy Policy

Triangle Networks Ltd (“We”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a comprehensive data protection law that replaces existing European privacy laws and strengthens the protection of personal data in an increasingly data driven world. The GDPR is enforceable in each EU member state and gives individuals greater control over their personal data. It comes into effect on 25 May 2018.

This privacy policy aims to give you information on how we collect and process your personal data through your use of our website and our products or services, including any data you may provide when you enter into a contracted service with us, sign up to use our products, or make a support or contact request.

It is important that you read this privacy policy together with any other privacy notice(s) or fair processing notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This privacy policy supplements our other notices and is not intended to override them.

Data Controller

Triangle Networks Ltd is a ‘Data Controller’ and therefore responsible for your personal data (collectively referred to as “we”, “us” or “our” in this privacy policy).

What we collect

We ask for your name, address and contact details following an initial enquiry so that we can continue to make contact with you to fulfil the requirements of your initial contact. For billing customers, further information may be gathered if a service is required to a home address, where home telephone numbers and personal IP addresses may be stored by us.

Information gathered is used only for direct communication and support purposes but also to fulfil our legal obligations for invoicing. We collect data only when explicit consent is provided.

In the event that the service provided relates to Hive WiFi, data gathered is for the purpose of providing authorised WiFi access to end users on behalf of our customer. In this instance we are considered the data ‘Processor’, please refer to our Data Processing Agreement below.


How we store the information

The data that we collect from you will be transferred to, and stored at, a destination inside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

We take great care to keep your personal information safe to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.

Files and databases are kept in secure locations on site or through trusted providers.

All areas and portals have restricted access with appropriate levels of security to prevent unauthorised access to those servers including firewalls and passwords.


What we do with the information

The primary use of the data we collect is to communicate with you to provide your internet and voice services, or to provide you with the means to identify users of your internet connection.

We will not under any circumstances, sell or rent your information to any unauthorised third-party.


Who we share the information with

To help us deliver your service we may need to share your details with a third-party network provider or sub-contractor. They may store basic information relating to a contact within a business for the purposes of contacting a named person on site for service delivery reasons.

We do not share your data with anyone else.


Making a request for your data

In accordance with our obligations under the GDPR Triangle Networks will provide, upon request, all information held on the person making a request.


Data Retention and Destruction

Our policy is to provide our customers with control over retention and destruction of their data.

Customer accounts can be deleted anytime. Deletion from our customer database is instant and irrecoverable, but deletion from accounts databases have to comply with HMRC legislation.
