Online Privacy Practices
1. We at THE ASIAN AWARDS and our affiliated companies ("we, us, our") are keen to strike a fair balance between your personal privacy and ensuring you obtain full value from the internet and other products and services we may be able to offer to you.
3. We are fully registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 ("the Act") and to ensure we comply with all protection the Act affords to you we have set out below how we intend to utilise the information provided by you if you register via the Site homepage or Members' Area. Further information on the Act is on the internet at www.ico.gov.uk.
4. We will not share your personal information for marketing or any other purposes without your consent unless where required by law. If you have registered your interest with The Asian Awards and/or any of our associated companies, and thereby given your consent, you may be contacted with relevant promotions, offers or information that you have expressed an interest in or that might be of interest to you. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE FURTHER UPDATES PLEASE EMAIL web@TheAsianAwards.com. We will always respect your privacy and any personal communication between you and ourselves. We will always comply with any data protection legislation currently in force.
5. When you access the site, we may ask you to give us your name, email address and other personal information that will be needed to supply the services to you. You can 'unsubscribe' at any time. We may use your personal data for contacting you via the phone or e-mail for support, notification of new products or new versions, general correspondence regarding the Site and correspondence, which may relate to you. If you would rather not receive future marketing emails from us once you have registered please inform us by e-mail.
6. The information you provide will be kept confidential and will only be passed on to external companies if you have opted in to permit THE ASIAN AWARDS to give your contact information to selected companies, business partners, sponsors and advertisers. If you opt out of permitting THE ASIAN AWARDS to pass on your information, it will be used only to support your customer relationship with us (i.e. e-mails only from THE ASIAN AWARDS) and to provide the specified service. We do not disclose or sell your information outside our corporate group except if we sell the whole or part of our business.
8. In accordance with statutory obligations we only collect personal information from you which is necessary for us to supply the services to you. You have the option at any time to request that we:
8.1 remove details from our database;
8.2 update the information we hold about you or your child;
8.3 request a copy of the information that we hold subject to the payment of a request fee; or
8.4 stop receiving data.
9. All you need to do is write to the address below quoting "THE ASIAN AWARDS Website" and in each case quote your name and leave a telephone number so that we may contact you. We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity.
10. Making sure you can buy safely online is a priority for us and certain links accessible from our Site offer items and services online. We have made strenuous efforts to ensure that security is one of our highest priorities and we have devoted a great deal of effort to ensure that our online security measures help to safeguard your information. Where possible we use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (Verisign) technology to allow for the encryption of:
10.1 potentially sensitive information such as your name and address; and critically-sensitive information like your credit card number.
10.2 We hope that once you understand the measures we take to help ensure secure transactions and privacy, and the steps you can take yourself, you will be as happy about the safety of your online transaction and order information as we are.
