If you send us an email through the “Contact Us” button part of this Site, we will use the personal data provided to contact you and respond to your query. If you send us a CV in relation to a possible position at GLI Consulting, we will use the information provided to match you with current or future opportunities and contact you.
By providing us with your e-mail address you consent to our using the e-mail address to provide you with e-mail alert services. If at any time you do not wish to be contacted by us by e-mail please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to de-register. Alternative, call us at our contact numbers.
No data transmission over the Internet or website can be guaranteed to be secure from intrusion. However, we maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information in accordance with data protection legislative requirements. All information you provide to us is stored and used subject to our security policies and standards.
We will retain your personal information for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which they were collected and any other permitted linked purposes. So if personal information is used for two purposes, we will retain it until the purpose with the longest retention period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter retention period once that shorter period has expired.
We restrict access to your personal information to those persons who need to use it for the relevant purpose(s). Our retention periods are based on business needs and your information that is no longer needed is either irreversibly anonymised (and the anonymised information may be retained) or securely destroyed.
We may sometimes transfer your personal information to third parties in countries outside the European Economic Area (the EEA) in which data protection laws may be of a lower standard than in the EEA. When we do so, we will use appropriate safeguards to protect the personal information that we transfer. We will either ask for your consent to the transfer or transfer it subject to European Commission approved contractual terms that impose equivalent data protection obligations directly on the recipient, unless we are permitted under applicable data protection law to make such transfers without such formalities (including where the export is to a country that has been approved by the European Commission as providing essentially equivalent protections to EEA data protection laws and therefore where no further safeguards are required in order to export to that country).
