2. Collection of personal information
We will only collect personal information from you (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, school name etc.) which you have provided voluntarily to us by completing contact forms, completing application pack request forms, by telephoning us, or by sending emails to us (for example, to request a visit to a school or college where you are interested in a job at that school or college). Please do not submit your personal data to us if you do not wish us to collect it.
Examples of where we collect your personal information are:-
If you ask us to contact you, we ask for your name, address, contact number, and e-mail address. This is so we can actually get in contact with you, to answer your question, or provide the information you need.
If you order a product or service from us, such as a psychometric test or a survey, we may ask for information including your name, e-mail address, school name, delivery and billing address. We use the payment processing services of PayPal, so we do not ask for, we do not receive, and we therefore do not retain, in any form, your credit or debit card details, or expiry dates.
If you use our recruitment services, and request details of a vacancy from us, we ask for your name, address, school name, position held, telephone number and email address. We then send the documents you have requested by e-mail (and by post, if you request a printed copy) and allow you to download them directly from our servers. We also use these details to send you (a) reminders when the vacancy is closing; (b) additional copies of the application papers if you mislay them; (c) feedback on your application and its success; and (d) if you are not successful, we use this information to send you details of similar vacancies that arise, in which we think you might be interested - these latter e-mails will be limited to an average of two per year .You may contact us to ask that your details be deleted, or to refine the types of roles for which you wish to receive information.
3. Use of your information
You agree that we may obtain, hold, correlate, merge and use your information (including personal information gathered as above) for the purpose of providing you with our products and services. These include:
(a) Personalising your visits to our site and developing the design and style of the site to improve our services to you
(b) (Where you have a requested job application pack) To inform you about the latest job vacancies that you might also find interesting. To let Southport College know the response to their advertisement so that interview days can be planned.
(c) (Where you have purchased our survey services) To inform you of renewal dates, costs and new survey product availability as well as any service outages
(d) (Where you have purchased psychometric tests or 360° products) To remind you of deadlines, supply you with passwords and assistance and ultimately to provide your report. To inform you of new products in which you might be interested.
(e) Communication (including our own marketing, and personalising such communication) with you from ASDTi.

4. Sharing information
If you ask for a recruitment pack, we may share your information with Southport College on a strictly confidential basis, so that the college is aware of the interest there has been in the vacancy and so they can make appropriate arrangements for an interview process. Your details will not be shared with anyone else other than as detailed on this page.
We reserve the right to access and to disclose personal information to comply with applicable laws and lawful government requests or requests by applicable regulatory bodies to operate our systems properly or to protect either ourselves or our other users.
We may transfer, sell or assign any of the information described in this policy to third parties as a result of a sale, merger, consolidation, change of control, transfer of assets or reorganisation of ASDTi.
As part of our Risk Management and Disaster Recovery Planning, we use securely encrypted backup services provided by Carbonite of 2 Avenue de Lafayette, Boston MA 02111, USA, in which all data is strongly encrypted here in the UK before being backed-up and transferred to the USA for the sole purpose of encrypted and secure backup storage. You consent to the transfer of your fully-encrypted personal information outside of the European Economic Area solely for these backup purposes.
5. Monitoring e-mails
We may monitor and keep records of e-mail communications which you send to us and other communications with you in accordance with this policy and our other business interests
6. Safeguards and security
No data transmission over the internet can be entirely secure, and therefore in common with ALL internet sites, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and/or use of our sites. However we use our reasonable endeavours to protect the security of your personal information from unauthorised access or use by others. ASDTi's websites all use Secure Sockets Layer 2048-bit encryption, verified through Sectigo (formerly Comodo Ltd) of 1255 Broad Street, Clifton, NJ 07013, USA.
In addition to our safeguards, your personal information is protected in the UK by the Data Protection Act. This provides that the information which we hold about you should be processed fairly and lawfully and should be accurate, relevant and not excessive. The information should, where necessary, be kept up to date and not be retained for longer than is necessary. Please help us to keep your personal information accurate by updating your details if they change - just contact us.
