Costmodelling Limited will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
Where Costmodelling Limited proposes using your personal information for any other uses we will ensure that we notify you first. You will also be given the opportunity to withhold or withdraw your consent for your use other than as listed above.
Costmodelling Limited may contact you:
Local pages will give you detailed information about how Costmodelling Limited will contact you in relation to specific services.
Costmodelling Limited will not contact you for marketing purposes, or promote new services to you if you have requested not to be contacted for these purposes.
We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies) or as described in paragraph 8 below. Generally, we will only use your information within Costmodelling Limited. However, if Costmodelling Limited needs to use third parties to process your information Costmodelling Limited will require these third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and Costmodelling Limited will require that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes.
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to costmodelling.com, or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on costmodelling.com, Costmodelling Limited may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
Where Costmodelling Limited reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any of the laws of England or Wales (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), Costmodelling Limited may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, e-mail/Internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to Costmodelling Limited's website. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant service, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with Costmodelling Limited or Costmodelling Limited's corporate retention schedule (this is a database that defines which documents should be kept and for how long). In the case that you wish to cancel your registration as a costmodelling.com member, once an account is deleted a red flag goes on the database and, while people cannot use the personal information, it stays on the system for a period of one year for administration purposes before being deleted automatically.
Where you contribute to costmodelling.com Costmodelling Limited will generally only keep your content for as long as is reasonably required for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted.
Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to request a copy of the personal information Costmodelling Limited holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests and will require you to prove your identity with 2 pieces of approved photographic identification.) We will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files.
