GSE is committed to protecting the personal data that you provide to us and recognise the importance of being clear about how we intend to use it.
Information we may collect from you
When you receive a service from our website we may ask you for personal data and other information to allow us to provide you with the services that you require. This could include the following:
- Full name
- Email address
- Telephone number
- Details of your enquiry
- Name of your organisation
The internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted through our website or by email. Any transmission is at your own risk.
How do we intend to use your personal data?
We may contact you for reasons relating to the service for which you have made a request. We would use your contact details to manage this and may retain them for marketing purposes. Please refer to the marketing section below on how we may use your personal data for marketing purposes.
Will my personal data be shared with other organisations?
Your personal data provided by you via our website will be only used by GSE. In exceptional circumstances (such as dealing with fraud, credit risk, abusive online behaviour, to enforce rights, to protect property, to protect human safety, if the law requires it; or if we sell or merge any part of our business) we may pass your personal data to another person or organisation to use for their own purposes. We will not otherwise disclose your personal data to anyone outside GSE to use for their own purpose without telling you; for example, by updating this privacy statement.
How long will GSE retain my personal data?
We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the required service to be provided to you. All retained personal data is subject to the controls of our data protection policy and will be securely disposed of when it is considered to be of no further use.
Where will my personal data be kept?
Once we have received your personal data we will use recognised industry-standard procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Your personal data will be under the control of GSE and held on our computer system. Parts of our computer system, including our website and email, are provided by our UK suppliers of computer systems, and are provided for GSE's sole use. When we print your personal data, this will be in the possession and control of our employees at all times and will be securely disposed of when it is considered to be of no further use.
We would like to contact our clients for marketing purposes and to promote new services to you. This may be by post, telephone, fax or email. If you do not wish to receive direct marketing from us, please contact us with your request.
