If our business is sold

We will transfer your personal information to a third party:

· if we sell or buy any business or assets, we will provide your personal information to the buyer (but only to the extent we need to, and always in accordance with data protection legislation); or

· if Oxford Semantic Technologies Limited or the majority of its assets are acquired by somebody else, in which case the personal information held by Oxford Semantic Technologies will be transferred to the buyer.

We process your personal information for this purpose because we have a legitimate interest to ensure our business can be continued by the buyer. If you object to our use of your personal information in this way, the buyer of our business may not be able to provide services to you.

In some circumstances we may also need to share your personal information if we are under a duty to disclose or share it to comply with a legal obligation.


Information we collect about you: When you visit our site we will automatically collect the following information:

· technical information, including the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet, your login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, screen resolution, operating system and platform; and

· information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators, clickstream to, through and from our site (including date and time), page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs) and methods used to browse away from the page.

We will combine the information you provide to us with information we collect about you.


A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer. We only use (and store) non-essential cookies on your computer's browser or hard drive if you provide your consent.

Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our site. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site. By continuing to browse the site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, which we do not have any control over. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.


We are based within the European Economic Area (EEA). However, some of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal information will involve a transfer of data outside of the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal information outside of the EEA, we ensure it is protected by making sure at least one of the following safeguards is in place:

· by transferring your personal information to a country that has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection by the European Commission;

· by using specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give your personal information the same protection it has within the EEA;

· where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.

To keep this privacy policy as short and easy to understand as possible, we have not set out the specific circumstances when each of these protection measures are used. You can contact us at privacy@oxfordsemantic.tech for the details as to how we protect specific transfer of your data. Information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers or those of our third party data storage providers.


We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or business requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for the personal information we hold, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the reasons why we handle your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.


You have the right to object to us handling your personal information:

· when we are handling your personal information based on our legitimate interests (as described in the “How do you use my data” section above). If you ask us to stop handling your personal information in this way, we will stop unless we can show you that we have compelling grounds as to why our use of your personal information should continue; or

· for marketing purposes. If you ask us to stop handling your personal information on this basis, we will stop.


You have various rights when it comes to how Oxford Semantic Technologies Limited handles your personal data. These rights are set out fully here. These include rights to:

· Access personal data (also known as a “subject access request”);

· Correct incomplete or inaccurate personal data we hold about you;

· Ask us to erase the personal data we hold about you;

· Ask us to restrict our handling of your personal data;

· Ask us to transfer your personal data to a third party;

· Object to how we are using your personal data; and

· Withdraw your consent to Oxford Semantic Technologies Limited handling your personal data.

Privacy law is often complicated, and whether these rights are available to you sometimes depends on the personal data we are handling. If you would like information about how to exercise these rights, please contact us at privacy@oxfordsemantic.tech.
