Privacy & Cookies
EMS may require certain details and Personal Data from you, including without limitation your name and email address. This policy is in relation to these details and any other Personal Data which EMS subsequently collects from you or about you (collectively "the Information").
Use and Disclosure of the Information and Client Information
EMS will use the Information in a variety of ways, some of which will assist and enable EMS to provide its services to its clients and prospective clients. This may include for example, EMS contacting you directly to monitor progress and to inform you of progress on specific projects and EMS publishing some Information (e.g. your name and email address) on certain pages of its Websites.
EMS may also in its sole discretion retain the Information and use it for direct marketing services, e.g. EMS may send marketing information to you. Such marketing information may relate to goods and/or services provided by EMS and/or third parties as well as goods and/or services provided by third parties which are entirely unrelated to your original requests.
EMS reserves the right to report any activity which EMS suspects violates any relevant laws or regulations to the appropriate authority. If EMS is requested by such authority for the Information EMS reserves the right to disclose it to them.
You shall indemnify and keep EMS and EMS's directors, officers, employees and agents fully indemnified against all actions, claims, proceedings, costs and damages (including any damages or compensation paid by EMS on the advice of its legal advisors to compromise or settle any claim) and all legal costs or other expenses arising out of any breach of any representations, warranties and/or undertakings or out of any claims by a third party based on any facts which if substantiated would constitute such a breach.
All Information will be kept as confidential and as secure as possible through the use of EMS's secure server software. This means that the Information can only be exchanged between you, EMS and any third party to whom EMS decides to transfer the Information to for the purposes detailed above. Furthermore as required by the Act EMS follows strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of the Information which you have given to EMS, to prevent unauthorised access.
EMS uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of the Information including "firewalls" and Secure Socket Layers. EMS treats the Information as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorised access. EMS 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.
