This policy covers our use of personal information that we collect when you use the DGP website.
From time to time, you may be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to use services on our website. By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable us to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information we will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current internet best practice.
When you supply any personal information to us we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use that data. We will not pass the information on to anyone else. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to the DGP website or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour, we can use whatever information that is available to us about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, until you no longer wish to continue your usage of said service. For safety reasons, however, we may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of our site (if applicable) for a period of twelve months. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. You have the right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. We charge £10 for information requests. Please address requests to The Data Protection Officer, Duncan+Graham Partnership, 8 Cecil Square, Margate, Kent CT9 1BD.
