Use and storage of your personal information
When you supply any personal information to Diamond Business & Management Consultancy (e.g. for competitions, Diamond Business & Management Consultancy Community services or Diamond Business & Management Consultancy membership) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to Diamond Business & Management Consultancy will only be used within Diamond Business & Management Consultancy and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to Diamond Business & Management Consultancy or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on Diamond Business & Management Consultancy , Diamond Business & Management Consultancy can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of Diamond Business & Management Consultancy membership you no longer wish to continue your registration as a Diamond Business & Management Consultancy member. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other Diamond Business & Management Consultancy services (e.g. competitions), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. Credit and Debit card information is subject to a defining clause below.
We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. All information provided will be stored in a secure environment on secure servers using SSL technology. The exception to this will be email you may send to us which by its very nature is not secure or encrypted.
We are licensed under the Consumer Credit Act and follow advised procedures rigorously to ensure our clients receive the best possible care
