PoloWorks has a Data Retention Policy which mandates how long records, including personal data, must be retained. All personal data will be held in accordance with this policy.
Retention periods are determined by legislation and business requirements. In most cases, we will hold your data for three years beyond the last contact, unless a legal or regulatory obligation requires that we hold the data for another period. All information will be kept securely on our systems.
PoloWorks will keep your information for a reasonable period of time for the purposes outlined above.
The Site maintains security arrangements to ensure that any personal data entered are protected against loss, misuse or alteration.
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data. However, you should understand that the open nature of the internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data are intended. While we use all reasonable endeavours to protect your security, we consider that it is only appropriate to advise users that the security of data transmission over the internet and the Web cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, you use the Site at your own risk.
Your privacy is very important to us and data protection legislation gives you a number of rights. To exercise any of these rights please contact us, detailing which right in particular you would like to exercise.
For this purpose, you may contact us at email@example.com or by writing to PoloWorks, 4th floor, 65 Gresham Street, London EC2V 7NQ.
This includes an obligation to explain to you how your information is used. This privacy notice provides you with this information.
You have the right to obtain confirmation that your information is being processed and to obtain access to your information, eg by receiving a copy of it.
You have the right to have your information corrected if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
You have the right to request the deletion or removal of your information in certain circumstances. Please note that there may be circumstances where it is not possible to fulfil the request for your information to be deleted, eg if there is a legal reason to retain it, or if it is still required to provide our services to you.
You have the right to request that the processing of your information is restricted in certain circumstances. Again, there may be circumstances where we are legally entitled to refuse such a request.
You have the right to receive the information you have provided in a usable electronic format and/or to request that it be transmitted to a third party where this is technically feasible.
