4.              What is Personal Data?

Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.

Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified.

5.              What Are My Rights?

Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

a)            The right to be informed about Our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Policy should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in Part 15.

b)            The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 13 will tell you how to do this.

c)            The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Part 15 to find out more.

f)             The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.

g)            The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business.

h)            Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.

For more information about Our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Part 15.

This may be because the data is necessary for Our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to Our use of your personal data, or because it is in Our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for  the following purposes:

·         Providing and managing your Account;

·         Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.

·         Analysing your use of Our Site and gathering feedback to enable us to continually improve Our Site and your user experience.

With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email or telephone or post with information, news, and offers on Our services.

8.              How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?

We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected.

·         Business details are kept indefinitely whilst our products and services are relevant to that business or until an authorised representative makes a request to have them removed and it is legal to do so;

·         Personal information is retained for 2 years after any commercial arrangement is concluded, or until the individual makes a request to have it deleted.

·         A request to have data deleted will be rejected if we are required by law to retain the data..

9.              How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

We will only store or transfer your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the GDPR.

10.           Do You Share My Personal Data?

We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties, without your consent  for any purposes, subject to one important exception.

In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

11.           How Can I Control My Personal Data?

 In addition to your rights under the GDPR, set out in Part 5, when you submit personal data via Our Site, you may be given options to restrict Our use of your personal data. In particular, we aim to give you strong controls on Our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from us which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in Our emails and by managing your Account).

You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have consented to receiving.

12.           Can I Withhold Information?

You may access certain areas of Our Site without providing any personal data at all. However, to use all features and functions available on Our Site you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.

You may restrict Our use of Cookies. For more information, see Part 14 and Our Cookie Policy https://www.psolved.com/cookie-policy.

13.           How Can I Access My Personal Data?

If you want to know what personal data we hold about you, most of your data is available for you to view and edit in the my account section of our site, also you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.

All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 15.

There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover Our administrative costs in responding.

We will respond to your subject access request, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of Our progress.

POLICY STATEMENT ON MODERN SLAVERY

 This statement is made in accordance with Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, which mandates that businesses openly disclose the measures they are implementing to combat slavery, servitude, forced labour, and human trafficking, collectively known as Modern Slavery.

 It outlines the actions taken by Problem Solved Limited to ensure that slavery and human trafficking do not occur within its supply chains or any segment of its operations.

 At Problem Solved Limited, we uphold human rights and strictly oppose any form of modern slavery or bullying. We acknowledge the vulnerability of every supply chain to modern slavery risks and accept our duty to comprehend these risks and collaborate with our suppliers to address them effectively.

 OUR BUSINESS

 We are an emerging UK-based logistics and supply chain consultancy with a global presence, headquartered in London, England.

 Our business specialises in providing logistics and supply chain consultancy services, focusing on delivering comprehensive strategies for global logistics solutions. This includes optimisation of supply chain efficiency, cost reduction, and enhancing the sustainability of logistics operations.

 Our expertise extends worldwide, enabling us to support clients across diverse industries and geographies. Our strategy is centred on driving sustainable growth, delivering value to our clients, and fostering strong relationships with our suppliers, always with an acute awareness of the risk of Modern Slavery to make a positive impact on the end-users of the services we provide.

 OUR APPROACH

 Problem Solved Limited maintains a precise policy regarding our supply chain and recruitment processes to prevent slavery and human trafficking, ensuring that any associated risks are effectively mitigated.

 All staff at Problem Solved Limited undergo thorough background checks. This includes verifying any criminal records that might be related to modern slavery or human trafficking, as well as checking references, credit history, and addresses for at least the past two years. This rigorous process allows us to ensure that our staff are not engaged in any activities related to modern slavery or human trafficking and are legally eligible to work for Problem Solved Limited.

 We motivate our employees and suppliers to report any concerns regarding modern slavery or other human rights abuses.

 To date, there have been no reports of modern slavery incidents within Problem Solved Limited for the period this statement covers.

 SUPPLY CHAIN STANDARDS

 The new Code of Conduct for all suppliers was introduced by Problem Solved Limited in Apr 2024 and has since been extended to include existing suppliers.

 This Code prohibits all forms of slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, and human trafficking. Additionally, we ensure our suppliers treat their employees with respect and dignity, prevent discrimination, and comply with relevant employment laws.

 Our Code of Conduct embodies our commitment to ethical conduct and integrity in all our business dealings and the enforcement of effective systems and controls to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our operations.

 We expect our suppliers to adhere to the Minimum Standard for Labour Providers to combat Modern Slavery, which includes:

 ·        Ensuring employees are employed under fair conditions with reasonable pay and all staff have written contracts of employment, with wages paid directly to them.

·        Prohibiting any harassment, including physical or verbal abuse, threats, and bullying.

·        Complying with national laws and industry regulations regarding working hours, ensuring a standard working week does not exceed 48 hours, or 60 hours with overtime.

Prohibiting the employment of individuals below the legal minimum age and ensuring no one under 18 is employed in hazardous work.

Eliminating forced, bonded, or compulsory labour, allowing employees to leave their employment after reasonable notice without having to lodge deposits or identity papers or pay any fees to secure work.

Allowing employees the freedom to join, or not join, a worker representative body.

 Ensuring compliance with national legal and regulatory requirements and having a modern slavery policy with a clear escalation process.

Informing Problem Solved Limited of all subcontracting or labour sourcing agents, to whom these minimum standards must also apply.

We reserve the right to terminate our relationship with any supplier found to be in non-compliance with our policies if issues are not addressed promptly.

 TRAINING

 Our Directors are well-informed about the risks of modern slavery, and Problem Solved Limited continues to provide internal training on our compliance approach with the Modern Slavery Act. This includes training for managers, the procurement team, senior management, and general managers on slavery and human trafficking, ensuring all direct reports are kept informed.

 Our internal policy document educates all employees about the Modern Slavery Act, the signs to watch for, and how to report any concerns, either internally or through the Modern Slavery Helpline 0800 0121700 https://www.modernslaveryhelpline.org/.

 FUTURE PRIORITIES

 We are committed to ongoing staff training to heighten awareness of any risks associated with Modern Slavery. Our goal is to enhance and expand our due diligence processes to ensure our suppliers are compliant with these minimum standards and can demonstrate such compliance.

Commitment to achieving Net Zero:

Problems Solved is committed to achieving Net Zero by 2050.

Directors Statement:

The proprietorship, leadership, and workforce of our enterprise hold a steadfast commitment to attaining Carbon Neutral status, aspiring towards Carbon Negative status before the midpoint of this century. This ambition necessitates a delicate equilibrium between business imperatives and our collective societal duties. Achieving environmental sustainability without compromising our financial viability is essential, ensuring continued provision of rewarding employment while safeguarding our planet.

Founded at the dawn of 2019, Problems Solved has been, from its inception, deeply influenced by our founder's Nordic heritage, championing the use of green energy where financially and operationally feasible to bolster our environmental principles.

With our ranks swelling from three at our inception to nearly thirty today, spanning full-time and flexible hours, our endeavour to minimise our planetary impact remains unwavering, striving for the smallest possible ecological footprint.

Our approach evolves continuously, informed by past corporate experiences and a foundational ethos, taking numerous strides towards sustainable operations while adhering to exemplary business practices:

  1. Toward the end of 2019, we equipped the domicile of our proprietor, doubling as our head office, with solar panels, substantially curtailing our electrical consumption and solidifying our commitment to a reduced carbon footprint.
  2. By mid-2023, our carbon emissions associated with office activities saw a significant reduction, thanks to the construction of an eco-friendly garden office in Chalfont St Giles. This wooden edifice, bearing the FSC seal of approval, now hosts our headquarters, featuring energy-efficient LED lighting, insulation, and solar-powered electric radiators.
  3. Apart from this solitary office, our personnel operate remotely, a strategy that diminishes both operational costs and emissions linked to traditional office environments and their support systems.
  4. This remote working arrangement not only fosters a superior work-life balance but also eliminates commuting-related emissions.
  5. As our operations expand globally, engaging with colleagues in the US, Europe, and India presents cultural and regulatory challenges. We are committed to aligning our international teams with our environmental objectives, encouraging them to measure and mitigate their carbon footprints in collaboration with us.
  6. Our policy eschews company cars and allowances in favour of an ambitious plan to adopt electric vehicles powered by surplus solar energy by 2025, further reducing our dependence on greenhouse gas-emitting transport forms. These vehicles will also serve as mobile energy storage units, ensuring power availability during less sunny periods.

Our journey is a testament to blending ambition with responsibility, striving not only for corporate success but for a sustainable future for all.
