Third Party Links and Services
Security and confidentiality
CHAM protects personal information as it is kept digitally on an in-house server rather than on the website. Hard-copy details are retained on file in the building which is secured at all times to the degree required by good business practice and insurance conditions.
CHAM protects personal information by not sharing it with anyone. However, despatching items means putting an address on the outside of a package so, in that way, your address is shared with the Royal Mail or a courier.
CHAM safeguards the security of personal information provided by taking what it deems to be appropriate measures to protect against unauthorized access, accidental loss, etc. No system is completely secure but CHAM will make every effort to prevent unlawful processing of personal data including restricting in-house access to the database. CHAM will not sell, trade on, or provide such data to any third parties other than under the circumstances described above or unless such disclosure is required in order to provide a requested service to fulfil an information request, to comply with a legal requirement or request from a competent court, regulator or other authority, or if it is believed that there has been a violation of CHAM’s Terms and Conditions or Company rights. Any information passed to a third party service provider will be held securely by that party and used only to provide the services or information requested.
Those who access the Sites are responsible for logging off from the Sites when not using them, keeping access information secure (unique password and log in details as appropriate) and maintaining good internet security. Should it seem that there has been a breach of security on the Sites then CHAM should be advised, immediately, as appropriate.
CHAM endeavours to protect Client and User privacy but cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors beyond normal control, may compromise the security of information at any time.
CHAM does not, currently, use tracking cookies on its Sites although these may be used in the future and may currently be used by other websites accessed through the Sites. Users should always ascertain the policy regarding cookies of any third-party website thus accessed.
CHAM offers the opportunity to share or follow information about the Sites (or the products and/or services available through it).
Please note that CHAM does not endorse, or exercise any control over, the policies or practices of any third party social network whose functionality may be accessed through the Sites. The privacy policies of any social network accessed in this way should always be read carefully in order to understand their specific privacy and information usage practices.
How long does CHAM keep Information?
Internet Based Transfers
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using it to collect and process personal information necessarily involves international transmission of data. Territories outside the European Economic Area ("EEA") may not have laws providing the same level of protection for personal information as those inside the EEA. CHAM does not currently process personal information on servers or via third party service providers based in such territories. Should this change at any time every effort will be made to ensure that personal information is afforded the same level of protection as in the EEA.
Access to Information
The correction, updating or deletion of the personal information provided to CHAM may be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. CHAM will endeavour to respond to such requests within thirty (30) days. It will be necessary to provide a return email address to facilitate this.
