Your information

 
We process data in three ways:

  1. Joining The PR Network

This is an opt-in mailing list to which subscribers can select the types of content they receive at the sign up form level.

The information submitted is held on Mailchimp.

In addition to personal information, our website uses Google Analytics to ensure we are meeting your needs. Google Analytics stores usage data which may include your IP address, geographical location, referral source, length of visit and page views – although a lot of this is aggregated data. The legal basis for this is legitimate interest for the basis of ensuring we are meeting customer needs.

How we protect data

We are not responsible for any damages which you, or others, may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information.

We take every precaution to safeguard your information. All personal data stored by us is kept on a server in a secure environment. The computer on which work is conducted on is encrypted and password protected, data held in the cloud is password protected and held on encrypted systems and third-party software (such as Mailchimp, Zoho and Pipedrive) have their own security systems.

The risks of a breach are minimal due to the precautions mentioned above being taken, and close monitoring is undertaken to ensure security systems are always up to date. Breaches will be identified, reported, managed, and resolved according to the ICO guidelines.

All The PR Network data is held for only as long as necessary. We store sensitive data for as long as projects are in progress, and up to 28 days afterwards.

How you can help us protect your data

 
Please bear in mind that whenever you willingly divulge personal data online in non-protected situations – for example on message forums, through email, or in chat spaces – that data can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal data online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited communications from other parties in return. Also remember to close your browser window when you have finished using the computer. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal data and communications. If you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet café, we cannot confirm or warrant the security of any data you communicate to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your communication, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
