The Policy guides how we collect store and use information about individuals and organisations.
It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and the changing needs of everyone we deal with. Our Data Protection Policy recognises two kinds of personal data that deserve different levels of protection: Personally-Identifiable Information includes, for example, e-mail addresses, billing information, employment status and `click stream` data that tracks visitor activity on a website or online service.
A subset of that category, Sensitive Data, deserves additional safeguards. Sensitive Data includes, by way of example, Clients` confidential data, individuals` home telephone numbers, Bank Account, Income Tax and National Insurance numbers, interview notes, CV`s, etc. If your relationship with us includes providing The Image Works Ltd with Sensitive Data, we will protect that information with extra care. We will not distribute Sensitive Data outside of The Image Works Ltd, if you so request, and will give you the chance to opt out of sharing this information within our own organisation.
The Image Works Ltd collects Personally-Identifiable Information and Sensitive Data only when there is a legitimate business need to do so.
