Privacy Policy

 

Instinct PR Limited is a Public Relations agency. We are fully committed to respecting and protecting your privacy.

 

The following privacy policy describes in simple English exactly what data is collected from you when you visit our website, how we process it and how you can get in touch with our data protection officer should you require further information. This policy is effective from 25th May 2018. By using or registering with www.instinct-pr.com you consent to this policy.

 

PRINCIPLES OF OUR POLICY

  • Private:We do not sell, rent or trade information about you to other companies.
  • Secure:we follow security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information that you have given us to prevent unauthorised access.
  • Necessary:We won’t collect information unless it is used to deliver a better service or to give you useful, relevant information.

 

Instinct PR collects data in order to operate effectively and provide you with the best experience of our products and services.

 

We receive information about you in two ways:

  • directly from you– usually contact details you have submitted via a form to request further information, download a resource, register for an event, join our marketing database, send us a document by email, or contact us for support.
  • automatically from the www.instinct-pr.com website:this includes your IP address and browsing behaviour. Understanding the way you interact with our site enables us to improve our service for you.

 

USING YOUR DATA SECURELY

We use the information collected in the following ways:

  • to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most helpful manner to you and for your computer
  • to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us, or in which we legitimately feel you may have an interest, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes. You can choose to opt-out of contact at any time.
  • to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us
  • to notify you about changes to our service

 

Occasionally we may incorporate cookie-generated data with other data we hold in order to communicate with you in the most appropriate way. We may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our site users, information requests, traffic patterns and any other related site information but will never identify you as an individual.

 

Information about you will be kept secure and it will not be supplied to anyone else, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it. Instinct PR do not sell, rent or trade any personal information supplied by you to any third party.

 

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

Currently, we do not partner nor sub-contract with anyone who processes information on our behalf outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). However, we do utilise cloud services that store the information we collect outside of the EEA.

 

DATA RETENTION

Information that we collect and process shall not be kept for longer than is necessary. However, we will retain information:

  • to the extent that we are required to do so by law
  • to the extent that it is necessary for the delivery or compliance with a contract between us
  • if we believe that the information may be relevant to any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings, and
  • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).

When information is no longer required we will securely delete or destroy such information.
