Privacy Policy

Latest update: September 2019

This statement sets out the privacy policy in respect of personal information which you may provide to CIToolkit. In general, we respect your privacy and will not disclose your personal information including your email address. We do not keep personal information online or make it available to anyone else. Below, we will explain how CIToolkit collects, uses, discloses and protects personal information on its website.

A. COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

CIToolkit will receive and store personal information you provide in application, registration or administration processes. The collected personal information is used to provide you with our digital products and/or services. The collected personal information is also used to provide you with information you request, establish and maintain any necessary accounts or records, notify you about CIToolkit membership renewals, or promote other products and/or services from time to time. If at any time you no longer wish to be notified about CIToolkit products, services or promotions, please let us know.

Personally identifiable information such as name, contact details and birth date are only collected when you make an inquiry, place an order, or register to use the membership section of CIToolkit. Information collected will be kept confidential, and as long as it is needed to service your account and provide products and/or services requested by you. When your information is no longer needed for these purposes, CIToolkit will delete any information held about you.

Sometimes, CIToolkit needs to collect personal information about individuals who are not members. This will usually arise when we collect the contact details of a person who is the contact in a company with whom we deal, or if you contact us by telephone or by email. Our policy is to only use personal information collected from non-members for the business purpose for which it was collected.

No personal information is collected when you are browsing anonymously. CIToolkit will attempt to provide you with the option of not identifying yourself or not providing personal information when doing transactions with us. However, failure to provide the full and complete information we request may result in limited ability from our side to offer or deliver complete services to you.

B. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

CIToolkit does not sell, rent or trade personal information to or with third parties. In rare circumstances, personal information may be disclosed outside CIToolkit. For legal reasons, disclosures may need to be made to law enforcement agencies, government agencies, courts or external advisers. For example, CIToolkit may be asked to disclose certain personal information about an individual to assist the police with an investigation into criminal activities.

Our website is password protected and we are using encryption technologies.
