Tensor takes your privacy seriously and will take every measure to safeguard personal data.
For Business to Business Clients and Contacts our lawful reason for processing your personal information will be “legitimate interests”.

For Business to Consumer Clients our lawful reason for processing your personal information will be “a contract with the individual” or a request to supply information (e.g. request for a brochure, sign-up to newsletter, etc.) which may also be via a user taking affirmative action.

Our work for you may require us to pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing the Services to you on our behalf. However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the Services and we have contracts in place that requires them to keep your information secure.

By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
