Your consent

Your use of this website signifies your consent to allow ALPSP to collect and use personal information about you in accordance with this policy.

This privacy policy describes:

The information we collect and how we use it

We believe it is highly important to respect the privacy of all visitors and to make only safe and ethical use of the information provided to the website. We aim to give you as much control as possible over the information you do give, and in all cases the disclosure of your personal details is voluntary.

Where we ask for information we do so in order to offer you better services, both on the website and in the rest of our operations as well as is necessary to record details for orders, bookings, delivery and payment.

If you believe that any information we hold about you is inaccurate, please notify us and we will do our best to correct it as quickly as possible.

Some of the information you give will be held in databases: we will ensure that these are secure and can only be accessed by authorised people.

We may also ask you to complete surveys or questionnaires on the website from time to time. These will always be voluntary, but we may use the information from them to personalise the website and to target marketing to relevant users.

We ask you for your e-mail address so that you may fully participate in our online communities and that we may contact you with important Association information efficiently.

Who will have access to the information?

Any information you give will be available to ALPSP.

Information you give in response to surveys and questionnaires on the website will be used in two ways:

* By ALPSP itself to help determine policy and to help improve its services to members

* By third parties that the Association may make the information available to for market research: in this case, the information will be made available only in the form of anonymous statistical reports.

We may follow up some survey responses by phone or e-mail.

How long will personal information be stored for?

We will retain personal information, on our systems, for the length of time it takes us to provide our services to you.
