Our commitment to Privacy
If you do not agree with any term in this policy, please stop using our websites and advise us of your concerns. You do not have to provide your personal information to us, but if you do not there may be limits on the services, we are able to provide to you through our website.
The personal information that we collect
If you use our websites we may collect and record your personal information (which may include your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone numbers etc.) in a number of ways: Information that you might provide to us when you complete an online form or registration through the Websites.
Information that you might provide if you contact us with a query about information on our website or service, to report a problem or enter into correspondence with us on an issue.
Information you may provide when you register for information or services.
Use of Information
Smart Opportunities will use your personal information in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was provided or collected. We will use your personal information:
fulfilling your orders or requests;
for our internal business purposes including for example, improving our websites and operations;
for administrative purposes; and
in order to comply with any law or court order.
We do not sell or share any information about individual users. We may only use your data to provide you with information about any related services which may be of interest to you where we have your permission to do this.
Disclosure of data
We may need to disclose your personal information to our third-party associates and subcontractors where, for example, this is necessary for fulfilling orders or requests or for complying with our other obligations. These third-party associates or subcontractors may use your data for the purposes of carrying out or facilitating our services. Where personal data is disclosed outside Smart Opportunities, we will where necessary place appropriate restrictions on the ability of the third parties concerned to use and disclose the personal data and will require such third parties to adhere to similar data privacy rules as Smart Opportunities.
Transfer of data
As we sometimes take up global assignments, it may be necessary to transfer your information to a country outside of the country where it was originally collected or outside of your country of residence or nationality.
As privacy laws in other countries may not be equivalent to those in your home country, we only make arrangements to transfer data overseas where we are satisfied that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect any information held in that country or that a service provider acts at all times in compliance with applicable privacy laws. Where required under applicable laws we will take measures to ensure that personal information handled in other countries will receive at least the same level of protection as it is given in your home country.
We may from time to time be required to disclose information about you to law enforcement bodies, agencies or third parties under a legal requirement or court order. We act responsibly and take account of your interests when responding to any such requests.
We will take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in our possession from loss, misuse and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. You should be aware, however, that communications over the Internet are not secure and we do not accept any responsibility for any errors or omissions which arise from circumstances outside our reasonable control.
Keeping your records
Smart Opportunities keep records for as long as we anticipate are required to provide services consistent with applicable legal, tax and accounting requirements. Where your information is no longer required, we will ensure it is disposed of in a secure manner.
