This policy sets out the different areas where your privacy is concerned.
Information collection and use
How do we collect information?
DS CONSULTING only collects information in one way: when you directly give it to us (“Directly Provided Data (information)”).
When you purchase our services or communicate with us, we will request certain information from you in order to be able to provide the services that we are contracted to provide. All this information requires a direct action by you at that time in order for us to receive it.
How long do we keep your information for?
DS CONSULTING will not retain your personal information longer than necessary.
We will hold onto the information you provide for as long as is necessary in order to provide contracted services to you.
If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce the terms of business as contained in our engagement letter, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the services to you.
In either event, we will destroy and delete all your personal information six years after the end of the year in respect of which we last perform contracted services.
Use of information
We only use the personal information collected from you in order to provide the contracted services. We do not use the personal information for any other purpose.
In particular, under no circumstances whatsoever would DS CONSULTING sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered as a result of providing contracted services or for any other purpose, to anyone.
Choosing how we use your information
We understand that you trust us with your personal information and we are committed to ensuring you can manage the privacy and security of your personal information.
With respect to the information relating to you that ends up in our possession, and recognising that it is your choice to provide us with your personally identifiable information, we commit to giving you the ability to do all of the following:
You may verify the details you have submitted to DS CONSULTING by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also contact us by the same method to change, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by DS CONSULTING at any time.
Should you contact us to request that we delete your personal information, we may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or in order for us to comply with our regulatory obligations.
You may request a readable copy of the personal information we hold on you at any time. To do this, please contact us as above.
Please note, we are constantly reviewing how we process and protect information. Therefore, changes to our policy may occur at any time. We will endeavour to publicise any changes.
