1. Collection and use of personal information
1.1 What information we collect
We obtain personal information about you if you choose to provide it — for example, to contact mailboxes or to register for certain services. In some cases, you may have previously provided your personal information to MVCP (if, for example, you are a former employee). If you choose to register or login to a MVCP web site using a third party single sign−in service that authenticates your identity and connects your social media login information (e.g., LinkedIn, Google, or Twitter) with MVCP, we will collect any information or content needed for the registration or log−in that you have permitted the social media provider to share with us, such as your name and email address. Other information we collect may depend on the privacy settings you have set with your social media provider, so please review the privacy statement or policy of the applicable service.
By registering andƒor submitting personal information to MVCP, you are also acknowledging that MVCP may use this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards. For example, if you register to a MVCP web site and provide information
about your preferences we will use this information to personalize your user experience. Where you register or login using a third party single user sign−in we may also recognize you as the same user across any different devices you use and personalize your user experience across other MVCP sites you visit. If you send us a resume or curriculum vitae (CV) to apply online for a position with MVCP, we will use the information that you provide to match you with available MVCP job opportunities.
In some cases where you have registered for certain services we may store your email address temporarily until we receive confirmation of the information you provided via an email (i.e. where we send an email to the email address provided as part of your registration to confirm a subscription request).
1.2 The legal grounds we have to use your personal information
MVCP generally collects only the personal information necessary to fulfill your request. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.
The law in the UK allows us to process personal information, so long as we have a ground under the law to do so. It also requires us to tell you what those grounds are. As a result, when we process your personal information, we will rely on one of the following processing conditions:
- Performance of a contract: this is when the processing of your personal information is necessary in order to perform our obligations under a contract;
- Legal obligation: this is when we are required to process your personal information in order to comply with a legal obligation, such as keeping records for tax purposes or providing information to a public body or law enforcement agency;
- Legitimate interests: we may process information about you where it is in our legitimate interest in running a lawful business to do so in order to further that business, so long as it doesn’t outweigh your interests; or
- Your consent: we may occasionally ask you for specific permission to process some of your personal information, and we will only process your personal information in this way if you agree to us doing so. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting email@example.com.
MVCP only collects "sensitive" personal information when the relevant individuals voluntarily provide us with this information or where such information is required or permitted to be collected by law or professional standards. Sensitive information includes personal information regarding a person's race, ethnicity, political beliefs, trade union membership, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal record. Please use your discretion when providing sensitive information to MVCP, and under any circumstances, do not provide sensitive information to MVCP, unless you thereby consent to MVCP's use of that information for its legitimate business purposes and consent to the transfer and storage of such information to and in MVCP databases. If you have any questions about whether the provision of sensitive information to MVCP is, or may be, necessary or appropriate for particular purposes, please contact Tina Page at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1.3Automatic collection of personal information
improve the performance, usability and effectiveness of MVCP's online presence, and to measure the effectiveness of our marketing activities.
1.3.1. IP addresses
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognise and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information may also be used in aggregate form to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.
Cookies may be placed on your computer or internet−enabled device whenever you visit us online. This allows the site to remember your computer or device and serves a number of purposes.
1.3.4. Web beacons
A web beacon is a small image file on a web page that can be used to collect certain information from your computer, such as an IP address, the time the content was viewed, a browser type, and the existence of cookies previously set by the same server. MVCP only uses web beacons in accordance with applicable laws.
MVCP or its service providers may use web beacons to track the effectiveness of third party web sites that provide us with recruiting or marketing services or to gather aggregate visitor statistics and manage cookies.
You have the option to render some web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies. The web beacon may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address but cookie information will not be recorded.
In some of our newsletters and other communications, we may monitor recipient actions such as email open rates through embedded links within the messages. We collect this information to gauge user interest and to enhance future user experiences.
1.3.5. Location-based tool
MVCP may collect and use the geographical location of your computer or mobile device. This location data is collected for the purpose of providing you with information regarding services which we believe may be of interest to you based on your geographic location, and to improve our location−based products and services.
1.2. Social media widgets and applications
MVCP web sites may include functionality to enable sharing via third party social media applications, such as the Facebook Like button and Twitter widget. These social media applications may collect and use information regarding your use of MVCP web sites (see details on 'Social Sharing' cookies above). Any personal information that you provide via such social media applications may be collected and used by other members of that social media application and such interactions are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide the application. We do not have control over, or responsibility for, those companies or their use of your information.
In addition, MVCP web sites may host blogs, forums, crowd−sourcing and other applications or services (collectively "social media features"). The purpose of social media features is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and content. Any personal information that you provide on any MVCP social media feature may be shared with other users of that social media feature (unless otherwise stated at the point of collection), over whom we may have limited or no control.
MVCP understands the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in an online environment. In particular, our sites are not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age of 16. It is our policy never to knowingly collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 16, except as part of an engagement to provide professional services.
2. Sharing and transfer of personal information
Transfers to third parties
We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, andƒor as required or permitted by law or professional standards. This would include:
- Our service providers: MVCP work with reputable partners, service providers or agencies so they can process your personal information on our behalf. MVCP will only transfer personal information to them when they meet our strict standards on the processing of data and security. We only share personal information that allows them to provide their services.
- If we are reorganized or sold to another organization: MVCP may also disclose personal information in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates;
- Courts, tribunals, law enforcement or regulatory bodies: MVCP may disclose personal information in order to respond to requests of courts, tribunals, government or law enforcement agencies or where it is necessary or prudent to comply with applicable laws, court or tribunal orders or rules, or government regulations.
- Audits: disclosures of personal information may also be needed for data privacy or security audits andƒor to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat.
In addition, MVCP may transfer certain personal information outside of the EEA to outside companies working with us or on our behalf for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement. MVCP may also store personal information outside of the EEA. If we do this your personal information will continue to be protected by means of contracts we have in place with those organisations outside the EEA, which are in a form approved by the European Commission. By providing personal information on online, visitors are consenting to this transfer andƒor storage of their personal information across borders.
MVCP will not transfer the personal information you provide to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.
In general, you are not required to submit any personal information to MVCP, but we may require you to provide certain personal information in order for you to receive additional information about our services and events. MVCP may also ask for your permission for certain uses of your personal information, and you can agree to or decline those uses. If you opt−in for particular services or communications, such as an e−newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will try to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.
4. Your Rights
If you have submitted personal information to MVCP, you have the following rights:
Access − You can ask us to verify whether we are processing personal data about you, and if so, to provide more specific information.
Correction − You can ask us to correct our records if you believe they contain incorrect or incomplete information about you.
Erasure − You can ask us to erase (delete) your personal data after you withdraw your consent to processing or when we no longer need it for the purpose it was originally collected.
Processing restrictions − You can ask us to temporarily restrict our processing of your personal data if you contest the accuracy of your personal data, prefer to restrict its use rather than having us erase it, or need us to preserve it for you to establish, exercise, or defend a legal claim. A temporary restriction may apply while verifying whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to process it. You can ask us to inform you before we lift that temporary processing restriction.
Data portability − In some circumstances, where you have provided personal data to us, you can ask us to transmit that personal data (in a structured, commonly used, and machine−readable format) directly to another company if is technically feasible.
Automated Individual Decision−making − You can ask us to review any decisions made about you which we made solely based on automated processing, including profiling, that produced legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affected you.
Right to Object to Direct Marketing including Profiling − You can object to our use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, including profiling. We may need to keep some minimal information to comply with your request to cease marketing to you.
Right to Withdraw Consent − You can withdraw your consent that you have previously given to one or more specified purposes to process your personal data. This will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. It may mean we are not able to provide certain products or services to you and we will advise you if this is the case.
You can make a request or exercise these rights by contacting email@example.com and we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable law and professional standards.
5. Data security and integrity
MVCP has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Despite MVCP’s best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. To the best of our ability, access to your personal information is limited to those who have a need to know. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
We also make reasonable efforts to retain personal information only for so long as the information is necessary to comply with an individual's request or until that person asks that the information be deleted.
6. Links to other sites
By registering on any MVCP web site and then navigating to another MVCP web site while still logged in, you agree to the use of your personal information in accordance with the privacy statement of the MVCP web site you are visiting.
7. Changes to this statement
MVCP may modify this Privacy Statement from time to time to reflect our current privacy practices. When we make changes to this statement, we will revise the "updated" date at the top of this page. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed about how MVCP is protecting your information.
