Any information which you provide to us is not made available to any third parties without your permission and is used by Concordiar only in line with the purpose for which you provided it and in accordance with the Act.



Sharing of Personal Data


We do not share your Personal information to anyone except as set out herein.

Sharing outside Concordiar: Personal Information may be provided to third parties, including prospective employers, organisations, legal, regulatory or law enforcement authorities for the purpose of securing employment opportunities, or when required to satisfy the legal or regulatory requirements of governments, regulatory authorities or other self-regulatory organizations, or to comply with a court order. Third parties are restricted from using the data in any way other than to provide service for Concordiar, or services for the collaboration in which they and Concordiar are engaged.

In the event of a sale, merger, assignment or transfer of our company, we reserve the right to assign or share your Personal Information with such third parties and their advisers. You will be sent notice of such an event and require the buyer to treat your Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Sharing within Concordiar: We may share your Personal Information within Concordiar, where we manage our internal operations, for business purposes, legal and regulatory purposes, analytics purposes and marketing purposes to ensure we have correct or up to date information about you and to better manage your relationship with us.



Retention of Personal Data


We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying accounting, reporting, or legal requirements.

In some circumstances, we may anonymise your Personal Data (it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. When Personal Information is no longer needed, we either anonymise the data (and we may further retain and use the anonymised information) or securely destroy the data.



Marketing


In relation to Direct Marketing, where we are required to do so, we will obtain your consent before using your Personal Information for this purpose. If you prefer not to receive our Direct Marketing communications and/or not have your Personal Information shared within Concordiar for the purpose of marketing, you can unsubscribe from our Direct Marketing and/or shared information lists.

Direct Marketing means our communication with you such as mail, telemarketing or email, using your contact information, to inform you about products and services that we think may be of interest and value to you. This does not include communications regarding products or services that you currently have, including improved ways to use the products, or additional features of the products.



Security


We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. Concordiar takes reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in processing and the nature of such data, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations. You should keep in mind, however, that no internet transmission is 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail or other electronic means.
