SCRP takes your privacy seriously. This policy explains what to expect when SCRP collects personal information about you, and how we will use your personal data. We update this policy from time to time, so please review this policy regularly.
Information that we collect
When you sign up for our newsletter, or submit an enquiry via the firstname.lastname@example.org email, you will be asked for some personal information. The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number.
When you provide us with personal data we will ask you for consent to use that information as set out in this policy. You can withdraw your consent at any time, by e-mailing us at email@example.com
How we use the information about you and how long we keep it
We gather this information to allow us to process your newsletter request or assist you with any enquiry you may have. The relevant information is then used by us to communicate with you on any matter relating to your enquiry or newsletter requests. We may also inform you about any changes to our website, services or other work, or ask for your views about our work.
We will not pass your data to anyone outside SCRP without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you are receiving the service you have requested, and remove it when the purpose has been met, or you request us to do so.
How we protect your information
We have put in place the following security procedures and technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal information: the website server is firewalled and passwords are used to protect personal data.
We will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information. However, you should be aware that the Internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot absolutely guarantee the security or integrity of personal information which is transferred from you or to you, via the Internet.
Access to your information and updating and correcting your information
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of your personal information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to ensure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. If any of the information that you have provided to SCRP changes, for example if you change your email address, name or address, or if you wish to cancel your newsletter, please let us know the correct details by sending an email to email@example.com You may ask us, or we may ask you, to correct information you or we think is inaccurate, and you may also ask us to remove information which is inaccurate.
If you have a complaint about how we use your data, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioners Office. Details of how to make a complaint, and more information about your rights regarding personal data, are available on www.ico.org.uk
