Second Draft Privacy Policy

Here at Second Draft Ltd we respect and appreciate the trust our clients, collaborators and the public place in us, and we take your privacy seriously.

Set out below is a guide to how we do this and maintain good practice when it comes to your data.

 

Some explanations on what we mean by data:

Alongside the more recognisable pieces of information like telephone numbers, email addresses, names etc., photographs and video can also contain personal data. Personal data is classed as information which helps identify a person (sometimes referred to as a “data subject” in legal situations). So this can include your face and physical identifiers or factors specific to the economic, social or cultural identify of a person.

Whilst we will do everything in our power to identify this personal data and seek permission for its collection and use, there may be situations where – unbeknownst to us – we are genuinely unable to notice the capturing of this data. If you feel that your data has been collected without your consent, or wish to withdraw consent, please do not hesitate to get in touch: mark@seconddraft.co.uk or telephone 07927 200 804

If you use the contact forms on our website to get in touch the data supplied in the form will be automatically stored. Any data and information supplied here will only be used to respond to your query or fulfill your request. We won't pass your data on to any third parties. We will keep a hold of your name and email address to allow us to keep in touch. By all means let us know if you ever want this information deleted.
