Marketing

PRDA will only use your personal information to provide you with details of products and services you have requested. We may use the following marketing methods to communicate with you: post, fax, telephone, email, SMS or via applications available on the Internet, such as pop-ups. If at any time you do not wish to receive such communications, then you may opt out by emailing or writing to us (see “Contact us”, below).

Third parties

The PRDA will not rent or sell your personal information to any third party. The PRDA may share your personal information with our affiliates for use by those entities only in accordance with this policy. We may be obliged by law to disclose personal information about you to law enforcement agencies, government bodies or other third parties in respect of investigations of fraud, intellectual property infringement or other activity that is or may be illegal, in breach of a third party’s rights or for other regulatory purposes. The PRDA may disclose aggregated information about our users, including you, to third parties for the purposes of analysis by us or them. Where your personal information is collected on our behalf by third parties (such as for the purposes of surveys), we will ensure that they comply with this policy.

Transfer of your information overseas

We may process or store your personal information in countries outside Europe, for example our web servers may be hosted in a different country in future. The laws protecting personal information in those countries may not be as stringent as those applicable within the European Economic Area, however the PRDA will continue to hold and transmit your personal information in a confidential and secure environment as explained in this policy.

Security

To safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information the PRDA implements security measures in line with industry standard practices. Our web servers are housed behind a secure firewall that prevents access to our databases from unauthorised users. All of our servers are housed in a secure environment and are protected by physical security, together with limiting access to authorised staff only. Even though we maintain security measures in line with industry standard practices, the PRDA cannot promise (and you should not expect) that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. For example (and without limiting the previous statement), third parties may unlawfully intercept your communications, or access our system or other networks which are connected to the Internet.
