Hello. We are Aceso Global Health Consultants (Aceso GHC)
If you contact us, provide services to us, visit our website, request information from us, or provide us with unsolicited information, we may act as the ‘data controller’ of your personal data. This means we determine how and why your data is processed, and are legally responsible for the personal data we collect and hold about you. We are registered as a data controller at the UK Information Commissioner’s Office.
One of our responsibilities is to tell you about the different ways in which we use your personal data - what information we collect (and our legal basis for doing so), why we collect it, where we collect it from, and whether (and with whom) we will share it. We also must tell you about your rights in relation to the information. This statement provides details about all these issues.
We intend only to process personal information fairly and transparently as required by data protection law including the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR). In particular, before obtaining information from you we intend to alert you to this Notice, let you know how we intend to process the information and that we'll only process the information as permitted by law.
If you work for a client or service provider of ours, check the contracts between us: they may contain further details on how we collect and process your data.

Legal basis: consent
How and why we use your data
You have given clear and explicit consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose
You can change your mind!
If you have previously given consent to us to process your data you can freely withdraw such consent at any time. You can do this by emailing us at email@example.com
If you do withdraw your consent we will stop processing your personal data.
Performance of a Contract
Processing your personal data is necessary in relation to the contract we have entered into with you or an organisation you represent, to provide our services, or because you or we have asked for something to be done so we can enter into such a contract.
Public Interest task
Processing your data is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest. These public interests may be:
Supporting the development and delivery of Public Health research, programmes and interventions.
Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.
Processing your data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or by fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data. These legitimate interests are:
Gaining insights from your behaviour on our website
Delivering, developing and improving Aceso GHC’s products and/or services
Enabling us to enhance, customise or modify our services or comms
Determining if marketing campaigns are effective
To manage certain back-end operations effectively
enhancing data security
In each case, these legitimate interests are only valid if they are not outweighed by your rights and interests.
Here is what each of the “legal bases” mean:
You can choose not to provide us with personal data
If you choose to do this, you can continue to use the website and browse its pages, but we will be unable to process transactions without personal data.
You can turn off cookies on your browser by changing its settings
You can ask us not to use your data for marketing
We will inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for marketing and if third parties are involved. You will be asked for your explicit consent of marketing by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can exercise your rights by sending us an email at email@example.com
You have the right to access information we hold about you. This includes the right to ask us supplementary information about:
The categories of data we are processing
The purpose of data processing
The categories of third parties to whom the data may be disclosed
How long the data will be stored (or the criteria used to determine that period)
Your other rights regarding our use of your data
We will provide you with the information within a month of receiving your request, unless doing so would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others (e.g. another person’s confidentiality or intellectual property rights) or if it is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’. We will let you know if we cannot meet your request for these reasons.
You have the right to make us correct any inaccurate personal data we may hold about you and complete information you think is incomplete.
You have the right to ask us not to use information about you in a way that allows computers to make decisions about you and ask us to stop.
You have the right to request us to transfer personal data we hold on you to another organisation and the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format. We will give you a copy of your data via a secure, encrypted email transfer so that you can provide it to another service. If you ask us and it is technically possible, we will directly transfer the data to another service for you. We will not do so to the extent that this involves disclosing data about any other individual.
You have the right to be ‘forgotten’ by us. You can do this by asking us to erase any personal data we hold about you. This right will only apply where, for example, we no longer need to use the personal data to achieve the purpose we collected it for; or where you withdraw your consent if we are using your personal data based on your consent; or where you object to the way we process your data.
You have the right to lodge a complaint regarding our use of your data. Please tell us first at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we have a chance to address your concerns. If we fail in this, you can address any complaint to the UK information Commissioner’s office (ICO), either by calling their helpline or as directed on their website at https://www.ico.org.uk.
You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances. This right only applies where, for example, you dispute the accuracy of the personal data held by us; or where you would have the right to require us to erase the personal data but would prefer that our processing is restricted instead; or where we no longer need to use the personal data to achieve the purpose we collected it for, but we require the data for the purposes of dealing with legal claims.
Your privacy choices and rights
Principles and personal data shall be:
Lawfulness, fairness and transparency: processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject.
Purpose limitation: collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.
Data minimisation: adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.
Accuracy: accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
Storage limitation: kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed.
Integrity and confidentiality: processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
Accountability: able to demonstrate compliance with the above principles.
We do our utmost to protect your privacy. Data protection legislation obliges us to follow security procedures regarding the storage and disclosure of personal information in order to avoid unauthorised loss or access. As such we store all personal data in secure databases and automatically encrypt confidential information when it is stored and transmitted. Access to the most sensitive data is highly restricted (only given to a select number of senior staff members). We have also established procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
You provide personal data at your own risk: unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure.
If you believe your privacy has been breached, please contact us immediately at email@example.com
How secure is the data we collect?
The personal data we collect is processed at our offices in London and in any data processing facilities operated by third parties identified below.
Where do we store the data?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, and in accordance with the Aceso GHC Records Retention Schedule.
All physical documents containing personal information will be shredded and electronic versions will be securely deleted. The method of data disposal varies and is dependent on the nature of the data. For example, sensitive data will be disposed of as confidential waste, subject to secure electronic deletion and include proof of destruction.
