Privacy and data protection

In the course of my work, I collect, process and store personal data. This may be from individuals with whom I engage, from organisations with which I work or from people who sign up to receive my monthly newsletter.

My priorities when collecting, processing and storing personal data are:

  • to collect only the data that I require to perform my work;
  • to explain clearly what data I am collecting and what I will use it for;
  • to use personal data only for the purpose(s) for which it was collected;
  • to store personal data securely; and
  • to retain it only for as long as is necessary.

I collect, process and store personal data primarily with the explicit consent of the individuals or organisations concerned. I may also process data under the legal basis of legitimate interest, to ensure the integrity and quality of the services that I provide.

On occasion, I use suitable third party applications or suppliers to assist in the collection, processing or storing of personal data. I do not share personal data with any other third parties unless I am required explicitly to do so under law. And I do not sell personal data to anyone, ever.

Sockmonkey Consulting Limited is registered as a data controller with the Information Commissioner’s Office, registration number ZA057900.

Should you have any queries about the way in which I collect, process and store personal data, or if you wish to know more about any data I may hold about you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
