Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable living person. Namos processes personal data for various purposes, and the means of collection, lawful basis of processing, use, disclosure, and retention periods for each purpose may differ.
If you have any questions at all about this policy or our Website, or about how we use and process your personal information, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail at [email protected]
Our role in data processing
If you do not already have a relationship with us (e.g. are a current or former client), we may hold limited personal information about you so that we may contact you to promote our Oracle consultancy services. For the purposes of the applicable Data Protection Laws, Namos Solutions Ltd is the data controller of your personal data collected in connection with your use of our Website or in any other dealings with us.
What information we collect
We will collect certain personal information about you when you submit the ‘contact us’ form on this website, or when you contact us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. We will, therefore, hold the information provided by you, which may include your name, email address and phone number.
We may also require certain information from you when we enter into a contract or need further details to respond to an enquiry you have made. We will always let you know why the collection of information is necessary and it will only be kept and used for the purpose it was collected.
When we wish to send you information about our services, and you do not currently use our services, we may collect your contact details, for example, your name and email address. This information may be provided directly by you, when you use the ‘contact us’ feature on our website or may be obtained through third parties.
If you contact us via social media (Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook) the message will be stored by us for the length of time it takes to resolve your query. It will not be shared with any other organisations.
Any information you provide during the recruitment process at Namos will only be used for the purpose of progressing your application, or to fulfil legal or regulatory requirements if necessary. This includes applications made through our website, LinkedIn Jobs, recruitment agencies or other recruitment platforms where we may post our vacancies.
We will not share any of the information you provide during the recruitment process with any third parties for marketing purposes or store any of your information outside of the European Economic Area. The information you provide will be held securely by us in either electronic or physical format.
We will use the contact details you provide to us to contact you to keep you informed and progress your application. We will use all the other information you provide to assess your suitability for the role you have applied for.
We do not collect more information than we need in order to successfully recruit for our vacancies and will not retain it for longer than is necessary. If you are successful and join Namos, the information you provide during the application process will be retained by us as part of your employee file for the duration of your employment plus 6 years following the end of your employment. This includes any criminal records checks, fitness to work records, proof of identity documents and references that we may carry out.
If you are unsuccessful at any stage of the process, the information pertaining to your application will be retained for 6 months from closure of our recruitment campaign or vacancy.
Lawful basis and purposes of processing of your personal information
We collect information about you so that we can:
- identify you;
- administer our contract with you;
- improve our services;
- promote our business and market our services;
- manage our business, including for accounting and auditing purposes;
- conduct reporting activities on the performance of our company, in the context of a business reorganisation or restructure;
- maintain our IT systems and manage hosting of our data;
- deal with legal disputes involving you;
- prevent fraud; and
- comply with our regulatory obligations.
Namos will only use your personal information when the law allows us to, i.e. where it is necessary to:
- fulfil our contractual obligations towards you, as set out in our terms and conditions and our contract with you;
- comply with any legal and regulatory obligations;
- pursue our legitimate interests (e.g. conducting our business in an efficient, compliant and profitable manner and the overall promotion of the business), and where your interests and fundamental rights do not override these interests. It may also become necessary to process your personal data for a legitimate interest of a third party. We will also rely on our legitimate interests for the proper administration of our Website, and to manage our internal operations (for example, maintaining our records and databases).
If you have provided us with your contact details, we will rely on your consent to send you any communications such as our emails with relevant information and news about Namos’ services, including invitations to events and WebEx’s, or new products and solutions. We may also rely on legitimate interests of the business to send you electronic communications or contact you directly, but we will always provide you with an option to opt out from future communications of this kind. See the “Direct emails” section below for more details.
We will only ever use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We may occasionally send out mail shots to our contact lists and to other business contacts. We may also want to provide you with information on other services, events or new products and technologies we think may be of interest to you. Where required by the Data Protection Laws (for example, if you have provided your personal contact information) we will send you such information only if you have specifically opted-in to receive it. Remember you can opt-out from receiving such communications at any time – please see “Your rights” section below.

We will share your personal information with the following third parties:
- Technology partners we may use to help us deliver our contracts;

Keeping your data secure

We also limit access to your personal information to only those employees who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information when necessary. While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason, we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that is transferred via the internet. If you have any concerns about your information, please contact us (see our contact details below). We have internal procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach which includes notifying you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
Retention of data
We retain the personal data processed by us for as long as is considered necessary for the purpose for which it was collected (including as required by applicable law or regulation). In the absence of specific legal, regulatory or contractual requirements, our retention period for records and other documentary evidence created in the provision of services is 8 years. Please see the recruitment section of this policy for specific detail on retention periods of applicant data.
