At SudoTech we care about the privacy, security and safety of our client’s personal information and production data. We take our responsibility to protect your personal information seriously and it is important that you are comfortable with how your personal information and production data are protected.
Protection of personal information
The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) aims at relating the manner in which personal information may be collected, processed and to provide you with the rights and remedies to protect your personal information.
The act involves three parties:
Data subject: The person to whom the information relates
Data controllers: The person who determines why and how to process the personal information
The Processor: The person who processes personal information on behalf of the data controllers
Information we collect
As a processor, SudoTech stores the information on behalf of our customers (data controllers) who are responsible for maintaining the information of their own data subjects. The only personal data that SudoTech will collect directly is provided by you when you become a client or from odoo when you are a prospecting client as part of their partner program.
We will collect your information when:
You contact us directly or complete the contact us form on our website
Odoo assigned you to us as your prospecting partner
Referred by one of our existing clients with your consent
This information collected will typically include your name, company name, email address, and if provided your phone number and address.
How we use your information
We use your contact information in order to provide quality service, to answer your requests, and for billing and account management reasons. We may also use this information for critical communication purposes such as important security updates or changes.
We will not sell, trade or otherwise transfer your personal data to any third parties.
Update or delete information
You have the right to update your personal data previously provided to us by you. If you would like to change or delete any of the information you can do so at any time by contacting us at email@example.com and we will take all reasonable steps to do so except when we are required to retain it for legal reasons.
SudoTech will only retain your personal information as long as necessary for the purpose for which it was collected as laid out in this policy, including any legal retention period. We will retain our clients’ database as long as necessary in order for us to provide the services you subscribed to.
Clients hosting at Amazon Web Service: Upon cancellation of service, we will keep your database deactivated for a grace period as agreed upon before destroying it thereafter. If no agreement is in place, deletion will only take place after 3 months of cancellation.
Clients hosting at Odoo.sh: Upon cancellation of service, odoo will keep your database deactivated for a grace period before destroying it thereafter. A manual copy/backup of the database can still be stored directly with us as per agreement.
Please note that migration between hosting platforms constitutes as a service cancellation.
Depending on our customers’ business requirements and in order to support our operations we rely on several third party Service Providers. They help us with services such as cloud hosting.
Whenever we share data with these Service Providers, we make sure that they use it in compliance with Data Protection legislation, and that the processing they carry out for us is limited to our specific purpose and covered by a specific data processing contract.
