Contact Us to fully understand these policies and proceedures. They are only shown in outline below;
We segment this Data carefully and use various security techniques that you will normally only find in use in the high grade Government and Defence sector. All access is carefully logged as are printers and their use. We use techniques to work out even if someone has attempted or succeeded to download Data to a USB device in the computers [typically we don't allow this and have stringent safeguards in place].
From that initial contact we run a process that results in you signing up to our T&Cs of research services or capabilities [which includes privacy terms], the acceptance of T&Cs of our Customers or your data is deleted. We do not market out to clients, nor do we use this Data from old leads to market in any way. Our phone systems and phones delete this data on a six monthly basis, unless you are a client and then it is kept for as long as you are a client, or that depicted by statute. Should you be attempting to solicit service(s) for unlawful activities then we reserve the right to use that given Data with Her Majesty's Government and/or Law Enforcement Agencies to report such.
At annual intervals we check that your Data held is correct or at any interval depicted by the agreed date(s) and/or frequency of the reporting on such research services or capabilities that Data will be used and processed as contractually agreed. It may be used as lawfully defined for tax/auditing as required by UK MoD, HMRC, Companies House and other governement departments.
Like any other business we have administration, payroll, employees and from time to time CVs sent to us, our policy is to hold such securely and limit access. Speculative CVs will be deleted after six months and will not be held on-file unless the individual resend such every six months.
Archiving of client files is done after the anniversary of the previous year, so we can return these to the client so they may securely store such records, files and Data for their business, company or personally as is lawfully required. We secure backups of Data in both fire-safes and other secure means. As a policy (and aside from how this may be delivered to us), we do not process or put Data into any cloud based archive, service or application.
All of our IT is maintained with resource(s) that have been scrutinised by Her Majesty's Government and we have assured ourselves that the rigor of management of this is done to high professional standards.
