SciCommLab (“We”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. By registering or visiting the SciCommLab Website (the “Website”) you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.
For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”), the data controller is SciCommLab.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
We may collect and process the following data about you:
(a) Information you give us. You may give us information about you by taking actions or filling in forms on our Website or by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number.
We use information held about you in the following ways:
(a) The information you give to us will only be used to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with the service and information that you request from us. If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you electronically with information about offers or promotions or similar services to those which you have already purchased or considered. If you are a new customer, we will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this. If you do not want us to use your data in this way, please notify us by e-mail.
(b) The data we collect about you may be used to administer our site and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes; to improve our site to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer; as part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure; to measure or understand the effectiveness of advertising we serve to you and others; to deliver relevant advertising to you; to make suggestions and recommendations to you and other users of our site about products or services that may interest you or them.
Disclosure of your information
Any information you enter and the data we collect about you will be used solely to provide a good service to you, for internal marketing purposes and to improve this website. We will treat your information with complete respect. We do not sell or otherwise disclose your personal information to third parties, unless required to do so by law or court order or to enable third parties to provide certain services to us. In such event we will at all times control and be responsible for any such use of your personal information. We will keep your data securely to prevent unauthorised access by third parties.
Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You can also exercise this right at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
