What personal data do we collect?
We collect personal data of our employees, candidates, suppliers, client business contacts and website users. We will always try to give individuals appropriate notice of what data will be collected and how it will be used. Whatever happens, we will only process that data if we consider it fair and lawful to do so.
Our website does not store any information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without their permission. Any cookies that may be used by our website are used either solely on a per session basis or to maintain user preferences. Cookies are not shared with any third parties.
Will we share your personal data with outside parties?
We may transfer personal data to our contracted service providers and advisors who may be located in other European Economic Area countries. Before we do so, we take steps to ensure that your personal data will be given adequate protection as required by relevant data protection laws and Vision’s internal security policies. However, there will be other times when we need to share or disclose personal data you provide for a specific purpose, for example:
- • We will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is completely up to you whether you want to provide it;
About sensitive personal data?
We do not collect sensitive personal data (also known as special categories). In the limited cases where we are required to collect such data, we will do this in accordance with local data privacy law requirements. The term "sensitive personal data" refers to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent.
About data security?
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of personal data collected. Regarding your data including IP Addresses, e mail addresses, use of our applications, portals and websites you should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that information and personal data may flow over networks connecting you to our systems without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Our web site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the sites of our partners e.g. waste collection and other services. If you follow a link to any of these sites, please note that these sites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies or sites. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these sites.
