Collection of Information: We usually collect personal information about individuals directly from those individuals or their authorized representative(s). We sometimes collect personal information from a third party or from a publicly available source, but only if the individual has consented to such collection or would reasonably expect us to collect their personal information in this way. Gulf Scientific Corporation will only collect information that is used to conduct our business functions or activities. This includes the following details:
- Name, title and position description
- Business address, business phone, fax and e-mail
- Personal data/interests related to specialized marketing & customer loyalty programs.
Personal information that is not required for business or would be inappropriate is not collected. Additionally, sensitive information is not collected or recorded.
Use & Disclosure: Gulf Scientific Corporation only uses information for the purposes that are directly related to one of our functions or activities. For this reason, information will not be disclosed to another organization within the same industry or any other industry for commercial use. Customer information may be disclosed to a third party (usually another customer) as a reference or to assist in technical support and/ or service issues. Disclosure will occur only upon verbal agreement with the customer whose records are concerned. Customer information may be disclosed to a third party in cases where Gulf Scientific Corporation has the consent of the customer concerned. Additionally, Gulf Scientific Corporation will be legally obligated to share customer information should this be required by due or legal process.
Data Security: We take steps to protect the personal information we hold against loss, unauthorized access, use, modification or disclosure, and against other misuse. The security of the data is ensured through implementation of the following:
- Prevention of loss of data through documented back-up procedures
- Prevention of data being stolen through isolation and daily lock-up of all electronic records
- Prevention of hacking – no external connection to server
- Prevention of data manipulation – all access to customer data through either our customer relationship management database or our accounting database are password protected. The database managers can view all changes and who made them.
When the personal information that we collect is no longer required, we either destroy or delete it in a secure manner.
Transparency: Upon request, a document outlining information handling will be available to any customer or person whose records are held by Gulf Scientific Corporation. You have the right to view any personal information that we hold about you and you can ask us to correct the personal information we hold about you. This does not include sales history or information which may directly affect future sales negotiations. Customers have the opportunity to request removal from the contact database at any time or to refuse marketing material and other communications. You can unsubscribe from our email list by using the ‘unsubscribe’ options noted in our emails.
