Velocity Host Privacy Officer
Velocity Host endeavours to collect any personal information directly from the individual with that individual’s consent. Where personal information is provided to Velocity Host by third parties, relevant staff will always take reasonable steps to obtain consent from the individual to whom the information pertains where required by the legislation.
Velocity Host only collects personal information that is necessary for the conduct of its business, be it by the company internal, Sales, Services or Recruitment divisions. Without the provision of the requested information by the individual, Velocity Host is unable to effectively complete the relevant business activity.
Within Velocity Host Sales and Services divisions, personal information is only disclosed to suppliers and customers relevant to the particular business that the individual is conducting with Velocity Host.
Within Velocity Host Recruitment division personal information is collected relating only to the practice of recruitment and assessment of candidates. Such information may be provided to prospective employers and employees in a range of industries requiring information technology skills or services.
Any Velocity Host client, customer, business partner or recruitment candidate who does not wish their personal information to be provided to any particular organisation or types of organisations should notify Velocity Host at the time of the collection of the personal information.
Use and Disclosure
As a major provider of a range of information technology products, services and resource solutions, Velocity Host’s primary purpose for collecting personal information is to facilitate the efficient provision of quality information technology products and services to its business associates.
Apart from the completion of the original business dealing this may involve the provision of relevant product and industry updates and other market related information and opportunities to Velocity Host business associates.
Should you prefer not to receive any such information please advise Velocity Host by contacting the our Privacy Officer as detailed above.
Velocity Host continuously monitors the accuracy of personal information on collection from, and provision by, the individual and through the day-to-day processes of its business. Should any updates to your personal information be required please contact and inform Velocity Host.
As an information technology company, Velocity Host employs state of the art security systems and procedures to ensure the integrity and security of personal information held by the company.
Personal information does not leave Velocity Host internal systems unless required to effect the primary purpose of your business with Velocity Host, or unless consented to.
Should personal information be required to be removed from our offices for business purposes, increased security measures are employed.
Despite the high level of information security employed within Velocity Host and its commitment to your privacy, the company is unable to provide an absolute assurance that personal information will remain secure at all times.
Velocity Host therefore does not accept any responsibility for incidences of unauthorised access to personal information, which is provided at your own risk. Likewise Velocity Host does not guarantee the security or privacy compliance of any websites that are accessible through links provided on any of its websites.
Velocity Host will delete from its systems any of your personal information held by the company on your request provided that sufficient proof of identity is established.
Velocity Host’s Privacy Statement is available on its website.
