Information We Collect
The information you provide to us:
The information we collect automatically:
Information from other sources:
From time to time we may obtain information about you from third party sources, such as public databases, social media platforms and third party data providers. We take steps to ensure that such third parties are legally permitted or required to disclose such information to us. Examples of the information we may receive from other sources include: email addresses, demographic information, device information (such as IP addresses), location, and online behavioural data (such as information about your use of social media websites, page view information and search results and links). In this case, we will have informed you, when we collected this data, that it may be shared internally and combined with data collected on this Website. We use this information, alone or in combination with other information (including Personal Information) we collect, to enhance our ability to provide relevant marketing and content to you and to develop and provide you with more relevant products, and services.
Use of Personal Information
Our use of such personal information collected is subject to data protection law. We mainly use your personal data to provide you with services you have requested. We may also use it for any other purpose for which you give consent, or for normal purposes connected with our work.
We use the information to communicate with you, provide customer support & assistance, to meet legal, accounting and security requirements, or, to respond to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We take your privacy seriously. We will never sell your personal data to anyone, and we take precautions to keep it secure.
In addition, our practice may be audited or checked by third parties such as our accountants, which may enable them to see some information about you. Such third-parties are required to maintain confidentiality in relation to your information.
Public information and Third-Party Websites
Social media platforms and widgets. Our Websites include social media features, such as the Instagram Follow button. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Website, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website. We also maintain presences on social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
If a security breach causes an unauthorised intrusion into our system that could affect you, then we will notify you as soon as possible and later report you on the action we took in response.
Safeguarding Your Information.
We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information.
Personal Information will not be passed to anyone outside The Company without the explicit consent of the Client, or, where client confidentiality does not apply, when it is reasonably necessary for normal business purposes.
Accuracy and Retention of Data
We do our best to keep your data accurate and up-to-date to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do so. If your data changes, then you are responsible for notifying us of those changes. These periods reflect our data protection obligation not to keep Personal Information for longer than is necessary and also our statutory, regulatory and business needs to keep records.
Thereafter, information is disposed of securely, by shredding, electronic deletion or otherwise as appropriate.
Your Right to Privacy
You have a right of access under data protection law to the personal data we hold about you. We seek to keep that personal data correct and up to date. You should let us know if you believe the information we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
We will give an individual access to any Personal Information we hold about them within 30 days of any request for information. Individuals may request to access, correct, amend or delete any information we hold about them by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless it is prohibited by law, we will remove any Personal Information we hold about an individual from our servers at their request. There is no charge for an individual to access or update their personal information.
