What information do we collect?
This website only collects personal information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by you. This might include contact details like your name, email address or phone number or demographic information such as your address or postcode. Should you contact us by email or other means and provide information about yourself, that personal information will also be collected, used and disclosed in connection with the matter in question, and you should have a reasonable expectation as to that. Where you or your organisation have business dealings with us, or with third parties for whom we are a service provider (who may also in turn have provided the information to us), that may mean that we may collect, use and disclose your personal data.
Why do we collect personal information about you?
The vento ludens group may collect, use and disclose information about you use in our business dealings as described above, for legal compliance, security or insurance purposes, or in connection with our financial processes and controls. Your personal information can also be collected, used and disclosed in order to improve the services we provide to you or your organisation, or to respond to enquiries or other issues raised by you.
We will not generally pass on any information on to any third parties. There are exceptions to this, where permitted or required by law, (including for legal compliance purposes, crime prevention, credit checks and fraud prevention). It may also be necessary where we have an agreement with you, or we provide services to someone who does, or you have been affected by our activities or those of our clients, e.g. in order to instruct external advisers to support us or our client in relation to a matter involving you or your organisation (including any disputes).
Is your information stored securely?
Where you send information for a particular purpose, it will be stored in accordance with our current business practices which are designed to maintain security and confidentiality. If you ask us to destroy this information we will do so insofar as is practical, subject to any applicable legal restriction and to our requirements to retain information for the purposes of fulfilling our legal and internal compliance obligations, including demonstrating compliance in the future should legal claims be brought against us. We will retain your personal data for so long as it is reasonably required (or, in connection with information provided only with your consent, should you withdraw that consent), including for legal and internal compliance purposes and the potential defence of claims in the future or if we are otherwise permitted to do so.
