Personal data we collect
Personal data you provide to us: Currently we collect and hold your personal data, such as your name and email address, if you email us via an address on the site or submit your contact details via our contact forms. You can use this website without divulging any such personal information.
Personal data about your use of the site: UltraSoC Technologies Ltd also collects domain information, such as your IP address, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, as well as details of how you navigated to our website and what pages you viewed, page response times, download errors, and length of visits to certain pages as part of its analysis of the use of this site.
How we use your personal data
Personal data that you provide to us is used to:
- provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us;
- provide you with marketing information in accordance with your marketing preferences (see How we use your personal data for marketing);
- manage and administer our business;
- review and improve our goods and services.
Personal data about your use of our website is used to enable us to become more familiar with which customers visit our site, how often they visit, and what parts of the site they visit most often. UltraSoC Technologies Ltd uses this information to improve its commercial offerings.
When we need your consent to use your personal data
Whilst we always want you to be aware of how we are using your personal data, this does not necessarily mean that we are required to ask for your consent before we can use it. In the day to day running of our business we may use your personal data without asking for your consent because we need to use your personal data for our own legitimate purposes (such as the administration and management of our business and the improvement of our services) and our doing so will not interfere with your privacy rights.
In exceptional circumstances we may wish to use your personal data for a different purpose which does require your consent. In these circumstances we will contact you to explain how we wish to use your data and to ask for your consent. You are not required to give consent just because we ask for it. If you do give consent you can change your mind and withdraw it at a later date by writing to us using the details in the section ‘How to Contact Us’.
Please refer to the section on ‘How we use your personal data for marketing’ to read about marketing consents.
How we use your personal data for marketing
We will add your details to our marketing database if you have expressly consented to this. We will send you marketing communications by email only.
We never share your personal data with third parties for marketing purposes.
If, at any time you no longer want us to retain your contact information on our marketing database, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the relevant marketing email.
When we will share your personal data with others
We share your data with the following people in the day to day running of our business:
- other companies that process data on behalf of UltraSoC
- other members of the Secure-CAV Consortium, namely Copper Horse Ltd; The Institute for Future Transport and Cities at Coventry University; the University of Southampton
How we keep your personal data safe
We take every care to ensure that your personal data is kept secure. The security measures we take include:
- only storing your personal data on our secure servers
- ensuring that our staff receive regular data security awareness training
- keeping paper records to a minimum and ensuring that those we do have are stored in locked filing cabinets on our office premises
- maintaining up to date firewalls and anti-virus software to minimise the risk of unauthorised access to our systems
Unfortunately, sending information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of personal data sent to our website; you send us personal data at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features (some of which are described above) to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Where www.securecav.com contains links to other websites, UltraSoC Technologies Ltd is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of other such sites. We encourage users to read the privacy statements of each site they link to that may collect personal data.

You can find full details of your personal data rights on the Information Commissioner’s Office website at ww.ico.org.uk.
We do not make use of automated decision making or profiling.

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