Your privacy is important to us. To protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices.
EMC Management Consultants Limited (“EMC”) provides business management and corporate finance advice to company owners and directors.
We value the personal data that individuals, clients and organisations choose to share with us and we take their privacy very seriously. Any information we hold is protected, managed and processed securely and privately. This Privacy Notice provides an overview of our data protection policies and the security measures in place to protect such data and your associated rights.
We will only collect the personal data necessary to facilitate our interaction with you, such as information that is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us and information without which we would not be able to provide you with the requested services.
Categories of personal data we may collect from you include:
- Identity data – your name and/or user name or similar identifier
- Contact data – your business address, email address and telephone numbers
- Marketing and Communications Data – such as your preferences in receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences
- Transaction Data – includes details about payments from you in relation to products and services purchased from us
- Financial Data – your bank details
HOW DATA IS COLLECTED
We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:
- Direct interactions – you may give us your data by filling in forms; using our website; corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise; attending one of our events; requesting marketing to be sent to you; entering a competition; surveys; or giving us some feedback.
- Automated technologies or interactions – as you interact with our website, we may automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. We collect this personal data by using cookies, server logs and other similar technologies.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
We use our best efforts to ensure that data is accurate, complete, current and reliable for its intended use, and maintain appropriate security measures to prevent the misuse, loss or disclosure of your personal data. All your personal data will be stored electronically on password protected devices. Procedures are in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
We regularly review the data we hold and information is destroyed if no longer required for the purpose(s) for which it was obtained. In most cases, data is not generally retained for longer than ten years.
CHANGE OF PURPOSE
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which it was collected, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you beforehand to explain why.
We offer choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or have not opted out of receiving that marketing. From time to time we may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think may be of interest to you.
THIRD PARTY PROCESSORS
Apart from that which may be required for legal or crime prevention purposes; as part of our work under a service contract with you; or to meet the requirements of statutory and regulatory bodies and/or our accountants, auditors and insurers, we will not pass on or share your personal data with any third parties.
You have certain legal rights to control what we do with your personal data held by us. This includes:
- The right to request access
- The right to be informed
- The right to request correction
- The right to request erasure
- The right to object to processing
- The right to request restriction of processing
- The right to request transfer
- The right to withdraw consent
Should you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact DPrequests@emcltd.co.uk. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month.
