Data Privacy Statement
1. Personal data
In this policy we explain how we will treat any personally identifiable information you share with us to ensure it is confidential and secure.
2. Collecting and processing of personal data
When you visit our website information transmitted by your browser is saved automatically in server log files, for technical reasons. Such information is:
- operation system
- referrer URL (previously visited site)
- host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
- time of server inquiry.
These data cannot be related to any individual.
Any further data such as your name, address, phone number or email address are not collected except where you provide this information on a voluntary basis, e.g. within registration, sign up for a newsletter, an interview, promotional competitions, execution of a contract or request for information.
None of this data will be merged.
When collecting and processing personal data we focus on
- full transparency, i.e. what happens with your data and how they are being processed.
- data avoidance and data economy, i.e. reduction of required data to a minimum.
- strict purpose limitation for the use of your data.
3. Use and disclosure of personal data
Personal data you provide will be used for technical administration of the website and to fulfil your requests and demands, i.e. in general to fulfil the contract or to answer your questions, only.
Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or transmitted to third parties unless it is necessary to fulfil the contract. Therefore, it may be necessary to pass on your address and ordering information to one of the training providers that carries out examinations or to an event partner when you have signed up for a conference – we will always ensure we have your explicit permission to do so.
Transmission to authorities or government institutions that are entitled to receive your information, will only take place in case of legal obligation or court order. In this case data will be reduced to the necessary minimum.
When the purpose of data storage is fulfilled and after the relevant tax and commercially justified retention period is over, all personal data will be deleted.
4. Your Rights
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you; provision of such information will be subject to:
- the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity [(for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address)].
We may withhold personal information that you request to the extent permitted by law.
You may instruct us at any time not to process your personal information for marketing purposes.
In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for any marketing purposes, we will provide you with an opportunity to opt out of the use of your personal information for any such marketing purposes.
Please let us know if the personal information that we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
