Data protection laws give you certain rights in relation to the data we hold on you. These include the following rights to:
- request a copy of the personal data we hold about you;
- request that we supply you (or a nominated third party) with a copy of the personal data that you provided to us;
- inform us of a correction to your personal data
- exercise your right to restrict our use of your personal data
- exercise your right to erase your personal data; or
- object to the ways in which we are using your personal data.
Your ability to exercise these rights will depend on a number of factors and in some instances, we will not be able to comply with your request e.g. because we have legitimate grounds for not doing so or where the right doesn’t apply to the particular data we hold on you.
Where you have provided consent to our use of your data, you also have the unrestricted right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent means that we will stop processing the data that you had previously given us consent to use. There will be no consequences for withdrawing your consent.
What categories of personal data do we collect?
Personal data. The personal data we commonly collect to conduct our business activities is limited to:
Contact details (e.g., name, company name, job title, work and personal email).
Sensitive personal data including data on children. We do not collect sensitive or special categories of personal data about individuals. We do not hold or process data on children.
Data for consulting projects. We may process geographical location or other anonymous sensitive data (such as wage data) in relation to a project but this data will only be partially identifiable (e.g. the postal area rather than the full postal code). This type of data is only used for consultancy projects and is only accessible by staff on the project. Sensitive data of this sort is typically stored offline and processed on machines not connected to the internet. It is deleted after project completion.
Security of your personal data
We always take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that your information is secure. In particular, we train our employees who handle personal data to respect the confidentiality of customer information and the privacy of individuals. We regard breaches of your privacy very seriously and will impose appropriate penalties, including dismissal where necessary. We have appointed a Data Protection Officer to ensure that our management of personal data is in accordance with this Privacy Notice and the applicable legislation. The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of the data transmitted to our site; any transmission of your data is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
