Privacy Policy

Data Protection
The Data Protection Policy employed by The Sportsman’s Inn has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the finest quality services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our clients, candidates, suppliers, associates and staff. The Policy guides how we collect store and use information about individuals and organisations. It will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and the changing needs of everyone we deal with. Our Data Protection Policy recognises two kinds of personal data that deserve different levels of protection:

Personally-Identifiable Information includes, for example, e-mail addresses, billing information, employment status and 'click stream' data that tracks visitor activity on a Web site or online service. A subset of that category, Sensitive Data, deserves additional safeguards. Sensitive Data includes, by way of example, Clients' confidential data, individuals' home telephone numbers, Bank Account, Income Tax and National Insurance numbers, interview notes, CV's, etc. If your relationship with us includes providing The Sportsman’s Inn with Sensitive Data, we will protect that information with extra care. We will not distribute Sensitive Data outside of The Sportsman’s Inn, if you so request, and will give you the chance to opt out of sharing this information within our own organisation. The Sportsman’s Inn collects Personally-Identifiable Information and Sensitive Data only when there is a legitimate business need to do so.

Our Policy provides the following:
Notice: We will inform you about why we are collecting Personally-Identifiable Information and how we intend to use it. We need to collect and store your name, address, and other basic Personally-Identifiable Information, for example, to provide you with the service you requested, as well as for billing purposes. This information also enables us to develop and customise services better to meet your needs and preferences, and occasionally other sources that may be of interest to you. From time to time, we are approached by companies and organisations that have a product or service that we believe may be of interest to you. We may share your Personally-Identifiable Information with these companies in an effort to help you find these resources. We will, however, always gain your permission before disclosing Personally-Identifiable Information to third parties that are not affiliated to The Sportsman’s Inn.

We will maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of your Personally-Identifiable Information.

Review and Correction
We are continuing to enhance our procedures to enable you to review and correct, upon request, the Personally-Identifiable Information we collect from you. Currently, we need you to make such a request in a manner that can be verified.

The Sportsman’s Inn will not sell personal data in any form, including mailing lists. All its data is for internal use only. The Sportsman’s Inn will continue to oversee implementation of and compliance with its Policy and will adapt the Policy to reflect changes in technology and the expectations of everyone we deal with. To ensure that we are following our stated Policy, we also conduct periodic and random audits of our Websites and other systems.
