We are committed to protecting your privacy. This policy explains how Officianet uses any information you forward to Officianet and how Officianet protects your privacy.
Statement of Privacy
Because your privacy is important to us, OfficiaNet operates by the following principles:
We collect and process "personal data", as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998, in providing OfficiaNet services. Part of our compliance is the registration of the purposes for which we process data with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). This is available on the Public Register of Data Controllers at www.ico.gov.uk.
Any "sensitive personal data" - as defined in the legislation- will only be processed with your explicit consent..OfficiaNet has an obligation under the Act to ensure all data processed are correct and current, but we ask that you review and update your personal information at any time.
By its very nature and purpose, the OfficiaNet website is a medium by which professional business people seek to make contact with each other. Other members may contact you via the OfficiaNet forums, the private messaging system, via export contact tools, via mass mailing newsletter tools or directly to your e-mail addresses if visible on your profile. You can choose to stop receiving private messages and messages sent via the mass mail tools at anytime. All the personal information you enter onto the OfficiaNet site and choose to be displayed, will be viewable by any other member or any casual visitor to the site, including search engines that index the pages of the OfficiaNet website. We cannot accept responsibility or liability for any processing conducted outside the remit of our services.
All information will be kept as confidential and as secure as possible. This means that Information can only be exchanged between you, Officianet and any third party who Officianet decides to transfer the Information to for the purposes detailed above. Furthermore as required by the Data Protection Act 1998 Officianet follows strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of Information, which you have given to Officianet, to prevent unauthorised access.
Part of our compliance is the registration of the purposes for which we process data with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). This is available on the Public Register of Data Controllers at www.ico.gov.uk.
Officianet uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of the Information. Officianet treats the Information as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorised access. Officianet employees use many different security techniques to protect the Information from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the company. However, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet.
Officianet is about sharing information with others - your partners, colleagues and people within your network, while providing you with privacy settings that restrict other users from accessing your information. We allow you to choose the information you provide to friends and networks through Officianet. Our network architecture and your privacy settings allow you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third parties without your permission.
You MUST be 18 years old or over to join the OfficiaNet website.
Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on this site. If we make changes, we will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the policy's new effective date.
