The Data Protection Policy employed by Progress HP has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the finest quality services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our clients, suppliers, associates and staff. The Policy guides how we collect store and use information about individuals and organisations. It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and the changing needs of everyone we deal with.
Our Data Protection Policy recognises two kinds of personal data that deserve different levels of protection:
Personally-Identifiable Information includes, for example, e-mail addresses, billing information, employment status and ‘click stream’ data that tracks visitor activity on a Web site or online service.
A subset of that category, Sensitive Data, deserves additional safeguards. Sensitive Data includes, by way of example, Clients’ confidential data, individuals’ home telephone numbers, Bank Account, Income Tax and National Insurance numbers, interview notes, CV’s, etc. If your relationship with us includes providing Progress HP with Sensitive Data, we will protect that information with extra care. We will not distribute Sensitive Data outside of Progress HP, if you so request, and will give you the chance to opt out of sharing this information within our own organisation.
Progress HP collects Personally-Identifiable Information and Sensitive Data only when there is a legitimate business need to do so.
Notice: We will inform you about why we are collecting Personally-Identifiable Information and how we intend to use it. We need to collect and store your name, address, and other basic Personally-Identifiable Information, for example, to provide you with the service you requested, as well as for billing purposes.
Opt Out: Progress HP will never share your details with any third party. From time to time, we may contact you with newsletters or details of products or services that we feel may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive this information, please do contact Progress HP via the contact form to opt-out.
Security: We will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of your Personally-Identifiable Information;
Review and Correction: We are continuing to enhance our procedures to enable you to review and correct, upon request, the Personally-Identifiable Information we collect from you. Currently, we need you to make such a request in a manner that can be verified;
Progress HP will not sell personal data in any form, including mailing lists. All its data are for internal use only:
Progress HP will continue to oversee implementation of and compliance with our Policy and will adapt the Policy to reflect changes in technology and the expectations of everyone we deal with. To ensure that we are following our stated Policy, we also conduct periodic and random audits of our Web sites and other systems.
Progress HP Data Protection Policy has been developed out of respect for the privacy preferences and choices of our candidates, supplier’s customers, associates and staff. We have established procedures to ensure that every reasonable effort is made to address your concerns. If you have any questions or comments on Progress HP and its data protection policy please contact one of our Directors.
If you have a complaint about our handling of data, you have the right to involve the Information Commissioner – but please inform us first, preferably by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we may have the opportunity to address any issues directly with you.
