At Coal, we are committed to handling information about you responsibly and we recognize and respect your right to privacy.
We are Coal ("we", "us" or "our").
We are a data controller for the purposes of the applicable privacy laws in the jurisdictions in which we operate, including the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”). This means in relation to the personal information you provide to us, we will determine why and how it is used.
When you use our website, services, or engage with us, we may collect your “personal information”.
Personal information is information that either alone or in combination with other information can directly or indirectly identify you.
Personal information that we may collect from you include your name, email address, age and/or similar information, as well as information about your connection to Coal (e.g.: as a tattoo artist or a tattoo enthusiast). We may also collect information about your preferences where it is relevant to the services that we may provide to you.
We may collect the personal information that you provide to us directly (e.g. when you fill online forms on this website or forms made available to you via email, or when you contact us via email or on our social media pages).
If you do not provide information requested by us in order to provide certain services to you, we may not be able to fulfill the purpose for which we have requested the information.
We will only process your personal information, where:
By “processing”, we mean the collection, recording, storage, use, disclosure and/or any other form of operations or dealings with your personal information.
We may send you newsletters and/or other updates that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive these emails, please just let us know by emailing email@example.com or clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
For further information on how we process your personal data in the recruitment context, please see below.
We will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your prior consent, except as detailed above or where a government, regulatory body or the law requires or allows us to disclose your personal information.
We may also collect, use and disclose personal information where it is reasonably necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of a legal or equitable claim, or for the purposes of a confidential alternative dispute resolution process.
We will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to keep your information confidential and secure in accordance with our internal procedures covering the storage, access and disclosure of information. Information may be kept on our information technology systems, in the information technology systems of our third party service providers, or in paper files.
Your data may be transferred outside the EEA as well as within it.
You should be aware that in territories outside the EEA, laws and practices relating to the protection of personal data are likely to be different and in some cases may be weaker than those within the EEA.
We will ensure that any such international transfers are made subject to appropriate or suitable safeguards as required by applicable data protection law. To find out more about the safeguards we have in place to protect your personal information please contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will retain your personal information until it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was obtained, and otherwise so we can comply with any applicable laws, regulations or rules.
If any of the information that you have provided to us changes, for example if you change your email address or if you wish to cancel any request you have made of us, please let us know by sending an email to email@example.com.
You have the right to (i) reasonably access the personal information that we hold about you and (ii) review, correct and delete such personal information. Under certain circumstances, you may request that we provide personal data to you in a format which can be transferred for use by an alternative service provider. To help protect your privacy, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to your information.
You also have the right to withdraw consent to the processing of your personal information at any time.
If you would like to exercise any of your rights in relation to our processing of your data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to make a complaint about how we have handled your personal information, please contact us at the details below and we will investigate the matter.
