This policy covers Coverpoint’s use of personal information that we collect when you use coverpoint.co.uk.
From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use the services featured on our website. Such services include newsletters, a review of your marketing material and information requisitions regarding Coverpoint’s services and promotions.
By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Coverpoint to provide you with the services and/or information you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information Coverpoint will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.
Use and storage of your personal information
When you supply any personal information to coverpoint.co.uk (e.g. for request for services or information) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use that data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and will tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to Coverpoint will only be used within Coverpoint. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to coverpoint.co.uk or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on coverpoint.co.uk, Coverpoint can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail/internet service provider, even law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as the service you have requested is available, and remove it in the event that you no longer wish to continue your registration with Coverpoint. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other Coverpoint services (e.g. newsletters), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act, 1998.
If you are notified on coverpoint.co.uk that your information may be used to allow Coverpoint to contact you, this means that Coverpoint may contact you for a number of purposes relating to the service or related services in which you have expressed interest.
It is the policy of Coverpoint not to transfer or sell to a third party any information it receives through coverpoint.co.uk.
