Purpose and Legal Basis for Processing


FibreCRM processes personal data for Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software.


CRM is a strategy for managing an organisation’s relationships and interactions with customers and potential customers (prospects and/or leads).


CRM is designed to allow a Data Controller to manage their customer/business relationships, as a tool for growth and business development, efficiency and integration with existing/other business software tools.


In its simplest form, CRM provides a central location for storing customer and prospect information, and that data can be shared with internal colleagues. CRM tracks the historical interactions with customers, through telephone calls, emails, meetings and documentation.


Typical CRM systems will provide tools such as:


  • File and Content Sharing
  • Sales Forecasting
  • Email Campaign Generation
  • Instant Employee Messaging
  • Email Integration
  • Software Integration (FibreCRM specialises in the integration of its CRM products with accountancy practice software)
  • Dashboard Analytics
  • Prompts and Reminders, Calls to Action


FibreCRM will only process personal data where the data subject has either confirmed their consent for us to do so, or where there is a legitimate interest.


Third Country Transfers


FibreCRM will, on occasion, need to transfer personally identifiable data outside the EEA, to third countries or international organisations. This is necessary due to the need to access appropriate CRM product expertise which not always available in the EEA and is for the benefit of our clients and data subjects. FibreCRM closely monitors the findings and recommendations of the Article 29 Working Party, in relation to guidelines and recommendations on data transfers, binding corporate rules and contractual clauses.

Data Subject Right to Complain to the ICO


Should the data subject desire to lodge a complaint with the ICO in relation to a perceived infringement to the GDPR in respect of data that relates to them, FibreCRM provides information to guide the data subject towards how to manage this complaint.


In more details, the complaint will progress in this manner:


  • Every data subject should have the right to lodge a complaint with a single supervisory authority (ICO in the UK), in particular in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, and the right to an effective judicial remedy in accordance with Article 47 of the Charter if the data subject considers that his or her rights under this Regulation are infringed or where the supervisory authority does not act on a complaint, partially or wholly rejects or dismisses a complaint or does not act where such action is necessary to protect the rights of the data subject


  • The investigation following a complaint should be carried out, subject to judicial review, to the extent that is appropriate in the specific case


  • The supervisory authority (ICO) should inform the data subject of the progress and the outcome of the complaint within a reasonable period


  • If the case requires further investigation or coordination with another supervisory authority, intermediate information should be given to the data subject



  • To facilitate the submission of complaints, the ICO should take measures such as providing a complaint submission form which can also be completed electronically, without excluding other means of communication
