This policy covers Gateway’s use of personal information that we collect when you use our website.
From time to time, you may be invited to submit personal information about yourself (eg. name and email address) in order to recieve or use services on our website. Such services include newsletters or requests.
By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Gateway to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information, Gateway will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current internet best practice.
When you supply any personal information to Gateway, we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use this data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to Gateway will only be used within Gateway and by its agents. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on our website or to Gateway or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour, we can use whatever information that is available to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties, such as your employer, email/internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and about your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose is not being met, or, in the case that you no longer request a service. Where personal information is held for people who require a service, their information will be held as long as necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
