We limit the collection of personal data to what is necessary for the purposes stated in our Privacy Policy. We ensure that the data collected is relevant and not excessive for those purposes.

6. Accuracy

We strive to ensure that the data we collect and process is accurate and up-to-date. As a user of our mobile admin app, you have the right to access and review all the user data associated with your account. This access is available through the “Profile Settings” button within the app.

You can review, update, or correct any inaccuracies in your data directly from your profile settings. We encourage you to regularly review your information and ensure that it remains accurate and current.

We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of your data, protecting it against unauthorized access, accidental loss, or damage. We take the utmost care to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of the information you entrust to us.

Your data is designed to be accessed primarily by you. As a user of our mobile admin app, you have the ability to access your user data through the “Profile Settings” button within the app. You retain control over the accuracy and updating of your information.

In addition, controlled levels of data may be accessed by our Business Success Team for the purpose of providing optimal support and assistance to you. This access is limited to the necessary information required to address your inquiries and ensure that our services are tailored to your needs.

It’s important to note that Virtual Operatives (V.O’s), who assist in providing on-demand admin services, do not access user data beyond the business description and industry. This limited access is solely for contextual understanding when interacting with you. V.O’s do not access deeper levels of user data, maintaining a focus on delivering quality service while respecting your privacy.

However, we do acknowledge that certain subscription-based V.O’s may require access to deeper levels of user data in order to offer consistent and optimal services. These V.O’s undergo additional training and comply with strict guidelines to ensure the security and confidentiality of your information.

We understand the sensitivity of your data and are committed to maintaining its privacy and security. If you have any concerns or inquiries regarding who accesses your data and how it is used, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

9. Data Transfer Outside the EU/EEA

At VOS| Virtual Operative Services, we understand the importance of ensuring the security and protection of your data, especially when it involves cross-border transfers. While our user data and payments are processed and stored on cloud servers within the United States (US) or European Union (EU) to uphold the high standards of data protection, we also have Virtual Operatives (V.O’s) based in South Africa.

The decision to have V.O’s located in South Africa is strategic, aimed at providing you with optimal services while maintaining an optimal pay-rate for you, our users. As a result, there are instances where data accessed by our V.O’s, based in South Africa, may involve cross-border transfers from the US, or EU/EEA to South Africa.

We want to assure you that these cross-border transfers are carried out with a focus on data encryption and security. We take measures to ensure that any data transfers are conducted in compliance with applicable data protection regulations. Safeguards are implemented to protect your data during transit and maintain the level of security expected under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Our V.O’s based in South Africa are essential for delivering the high-quality on-demand admin services you expect from us. While their location might involve data transfers outside the EU/EEA, we uphold the same commitment to data security and protection throughout these processes.

Some of the processes taken to secure your data are:

  1. Using standard contractual clauses (SCCs): SCCs are a set of pre-approved contractual clauses that can be used to ensure that personal data is protected when it is transferred to a country outside of the EEA. SCCs are approved by the European Commission and are legally binding.
  2. Using binding corporate rules (BCRs): BCRs are internal rules that can be adopted by a group of companies to govern the transfer of personal data within the group. BCRs must be approved by the relevant data protection authorities and must be enforceable by individuals.
  3. Using other appropriate safeguards: In addition to SCCs, BCRs, and adequacy decisions, there are a number of other safeguards that can be used to protect user data when it is transferred to a country outside of the EEA. These safeguards may include:
    • Encrypting the data before it is transferred
    • Using a trusted third party to transfer the data
    • Only transferring the data to countries that have a good reputation for data protection

If you have any questions or concerns about the data transfer outside the EU/EEA or the measures we have in place to safeguard your data during these transfers, please do not hesitate to contact us at [info@virtualopservices.com]. Your trust and confidence in our services remain our utmost priority.

10. Accountability

We are committed to demonstrating compliance with GDPR principles and ensuring transparency and limited responsibility. Our Privacy Policy, data protection practices, and transparency initiatives are all part of our commitment to accountability.

Transparency: We are dedicated to being transparent about our data processing practices. Our Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your information. We strive to ensure that you have a clear understanding of how your data is handled and the purposes for which it is processed.

Limited Responsibility: While we take comprehensive measures to protect your data and maintain its security, it’s important to note that certain responsibilities lie with you as a user. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account credentials and ensuring the security of your device. We encourage you to use strong passwords, implement device security measures, and promptly report any unauthorized access to your account.
