What do we do with your information?
We may use information about you for any of the following purposes:
How do we collect your information?
We collect information about you using various methods including:
We may combine information that we collect about you through this website with information that you provide to us by other means, or that is provided to us by third parties.
We may store information together in a combined database or in separate databases.
We will not retain information about you for longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was intended, or as required under any contract or by law.
We will not collect an excessive amount of information from you nor information that is not relevant to the purposes for that which it was collected.
Who do we disclose your information to?
CR and QUANTUM will not disclose to any third parties personal information which relates to you without your consent, except:
If we disclose your personal information to a third party which is outside the European Economic Area, we will not do so until we have taken steps to ensure that your personal information will be afforded the same level of protection as that required from us by data protection laws in the UK.
We will take all reasonable precautions to ensure that our staff and employees who have access to information about you have received adequate training to ensure that they process that information only in accordance with this policy and with our obligations under data protection law. We may take disciplinary action against our staff and employees in the event of non-compliance, should we consider this to be appropriate.
How to get copies of or amend the information about you that we have collected
Under data protection law you have the right to request details of personal information which we hold about you. We will comply with your request promptly and by no later than 40 days from receipt of any such request. If you would like to make any such request please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We may need to take steps to verify your identity and we may charge a small fee (of £10) before we process your request.
Please help us to ensure that the information about you that we hold is accurate and up to date. If you think that any information we have about you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact the team via email@example.com. We will correct or update any information about you as soon as reasonably possible.
What do we do to keep your information secure?
We only request and use information absolutely essential to administer the CHANGE for Convergence programme, respond to your requests for information and to inform you about the Quantum programme. Our site uses your IP address (an IP address identifies the type of browser you are using i.e. Netscape; Internet Explorer by assigning a unique number) for general system administration to serve you better by diagnosing problems with our server.
We protect the security of your information by using password protection and limiting access to your information (for example, only our staff or employees who need access to it for the purposes described above will have access to it).
Please help us to keep your information secure by not using an obvious password and ensuring that you do not divulge your password to any other person.
This website may link to other websites which are outside our control, and other websites outside our control may link to this website. Whilst we try to ensure that we link only to websites which share our privacy and security standards, once you have left this website we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide on other websites. You should exercise caution and review the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
