Boardspace takes your privacy very seriously. Unless you give Boardspace express permission to act otherwise, the following privacy policy will guide the way we treat the personal information you provide to us.

Our policy and principles

In connection with our activities, we collect personal data from individuals. The data we collect can range from name and contact information, including e-mail addresses, to cvs and application forms in connection with our trustee recruitment service. The principles upon which our policy is based and which we follow are as follows:

  • We only collect personal information which is relevant to the purpose required.
  • We shall never sell or rent your personal information to any third party.
  • We shall not disclose to or share with any third party your personal information without your express consent unless it is necessary for us to do so in order to comply with the law or with police investigations; or your consent may be implied from the nature of the reason for your supplying it to us.

If, as part of our activities, we do pass the information to a third party, we shall inform you when and to whom it has been or will be passed.

Information supplied to us for a particular purpose will not be supplied to a third party for another purpose unless you have given your consent.

We make every effort to keep secure any information supplied by you to us.

We shall not collect personal data from you unless you provide it voluntarily. Your personal information is required to be kept if you wish us to correspond with you – the more contact addresses, phone numbers etc the better – but, if you prefer, you can limit the means of contact to one method.

We seek to keep our database of information up to date, but do rely on you to update us, as appropriate, when or if the data changes. This is particularly important in terms of contact details.

Our retention policy for personal data ensures that we only retain information for which we have a business requirement:

  • documents such as application forms and cvs are only retained for as long as we consider is necessary for the purpose for which they were supplied.
  • We may retain information for historical record or statistical purposes
  • From time to time in the future, we may wish to contact you about other services etc which we think would be of interest to you
  • At all times, you have the right not to supply to us or to request us to delete information you consider unnecessary for us to have or retain.

A cookie is used to identify your device and can show the pages that are being viewed on our web site – sometimes this is used to vary the content you may see on our site.

In common with many other websites, we use cookies to help us gather and store information about visitors to our web site. Data that could be collected include your IP address (a number assigned to your device by your company or ISP for a certain numbers of hours whilst you are connected or on-line), the operating system and browser you use and potentially the company you work for or the name of your ISP. This is statistical data about our web site users and the pages you visit and does not identify you as an individual. The data helps us improve our web site to better serve you and develop our product offerings.
