This policy (together with the Procurement Forum’s legal notice) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You must not share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
The Procurement Forum will never provide your data to third parties, or use data for any activities beyond the necessary moderation of the Procurement Forum.
The Procurement Forum will operate transparently, informing members and notifying appropriate authorities in the case where a security breach may threaten the privacy of member's data.
We maintain this site and all associated data with technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification and improper disclosure. Your personal information will be stored at facilities located across the world and will be retained for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires. Every request to join the Procurement Forum is screened to ensure no inappropriate parties are able to access the Forum and the data therein. If a member fails to comply with the rules of conduct, their account will be revoked.
