Privacy Policy

      

HSC Design Ltd  have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy.  Effective 25th May 2018:

1.0 OUR CORE BELIEFS REGARDING USER PRIVACY AND DATA PROTECTION

  • User privacy and data protection are human rights

  • We have a duty of care to the people within our data protection policy

  • Data should only be collected and processed when absolutely necessary

  • We loathe spam as much as you do!

  • We will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public your personal information

  

2.0 RELEVANT LEGISLATION

  

Along with our business and internal computer systems, this website is designed to comply with the following legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:

  • UK Data Protection Act 1988 (DPA)

  • EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)

  • EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)

3.0 PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT THIS WEBSITE COLLECTS AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:

3.1 Site visitation tracking

Like most websites, this site collects user visitor data. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

This website may collect* information (already held in the public domain) attributed to the IP address of the computer or device that is being used to access it. The information is supplied to us by Google Analytics and Statcounter. These systems do not use your IP address to identify you, the individual, in any way. We regard these companies as third party and as such you can see their privacy details here:

3.2 Contact forms and email links

Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or be processed by any third party data processors. Instead the data will be sent in an email to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our own SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices. However, not all mail servers are secured in such a way. Therefore, we would suggest that you always consider email as an insecure medium and not include personal, confidential or otherwise sensitive information within an email.

3.3 Email newsletter

If you choose to join one of our email newsletters, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to Marketers choice who provide us with email marketing services. We consider Marketers choice to be a third party data processor. The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website's own database or in any of our internal computer systems. Your email address will remain within Marketers choice database for as long as we continue to use Marketers choice services for email marketing or until you request removal from the list. You can do this by un-subscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send to you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list. If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.

While your email address remains within the Marketers choice database, you will receive periodic (approximately one per month) newsletter-style emails from us. We do not share our email address list with third parties although we may suggest third party products or services to you in our emails. http://www.marketerschoice.com/privacy-policy/

3.4 Registering as a Member

If you choose to register your business as a Member we ask you to complete a registration form which includes your name, business address, contact details and service details. This is so that we may display your details to web site visitors and contact you about updates and job opportunities. If you choose to have your data deleted from our website we may retain the information that is required of us by law. You will be asked to confirm business insurance and compliance with the professional code of conduct and GDPR and we will retain this information to maintain transparency for clients. 

  

4.0 HOW AND FOR WHAT LENGTH OF TIME WE WILL STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

By registering with us as a Member via our Website, you choose to accept the practices described in this Privacy Notice. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as set out in here.

 

As detailed in section 3.2 above, if you submit an email your information will not be stored on this website but sent to us in an email form and saved securely in our third part email platform Google professional email management. You can see their privacy policy here https://policies.google.com/privacy
