Use of Personal Data
The Personal Data provided by you will be used by Qi only for the purpose of responding to your query or request for information, or for informing you of our client consultancy and training service offerings, including upcoming training courses, relevant events, useful statistics hints and tips or new software packages available. Qi will never sell or pass your Personal Data onto other companies for marketing purposes on generating marketable client lists. Occasionally there may be a need to pass your data onto our Third Party business contacts and associates in order to solve administrative issues (e.g. IT firms, payment services, software support firms, accountants etc.). If we do this we will obtain your permission first.
If you have requested e-mail alerts from the website or consented to receiving our newsletter and update emails, your e-mail address will be retained for the purposes of sending you the requested alerts and for no other reasons. You will have the opportunity to un-subscribe from this service by contacting us by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking on the unsubscribe link on each email.
We may also collect additional information directly from the website, such as log files. Log files record website usage and information such as time, date, IP address, HTTP status and bytes sent and received. We use this information to improve our website and monitor website activity. This is statistical information about your browsing actions and patterns and does not identify any individual.
Unless you ask to remove it earlier, your data will be stored in our system according to our company GDPR policy statement which you can request by emailing us on email@example.com.
You have the right, free of charge, to request to see the information we hold about you, and to modify or delete your data at any time by contacting us by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to our registered address: Qi Statistics Ltd, Overdene House, 49 Church Street, Theale, Berkshire RG7 5BX
Once we have received your request we will respond within 30 days. We do everything we can to keep the information we have about you accurate and up to date. If there are errors or inaccuracies in your data, we will erase or amend that information on request.
The data that we collect from you will normally be transferred and stored at a destination within the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Occasionally, it may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Although we’re based in the UK, we may use suppliers from other parts of the world to help ensure you receive the very best in products and services from us. To allow us to run our business on this basis, the information we collect may on occasion be transferred to, stored and used at premises in other countries including the United States of America. Naturally, we aim to ensure all our suppliers take information security as seriously as we do and we would only use recognised suppliers. Even so, information protection laws can vary from country to country. For instance, the law of the country in which you are resident or domiciled may offer a higher standard of protection than the laws in the UK and/or the other countries in which we store and use the information we collect. Any transfer of information we make to other countries could result in that information being available to their government and other authorities in those countries under their laws. We will only disclose your personal information to business partners, government bodies and law enforcement agencies, and suppliers we engage to process data on our behalf.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
