You may be asked for PII such as, your name, job title, email address, mailing address and phone number. We may also process your IP address, password and other PII which you provide to us further to completing one of our questionnaires or using our Sites.
We will only collect PII from you if you voluntarily submit such information to us. You can always refuse to supply PII, except that it may prevent you from engaging in certain Site related activities and/or the receipt or supply of TMSDI services.

We may collect non-personal identification information about you whenever you interact with our Sites.

How we protect your information
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your PII stored on our Sites and on those Sites which are controlled by us. In particular we implement, or require our suppliers to implement, appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including inter alia as appropriate:
(a) the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data;
(b) the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services;
(c) the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident;
(d) a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing
taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the controller and us, the processor. In assessing the appropriate level of security account shall be taken in particular of the risks that are presented by processing, in particular from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed
Sensitive (special category) and private data exchange between you and our Sites happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.
Our staff receive training to understand their obligations in relation to data protection legilsation and keeping PII confidential and they are subject to contractual obligations of confidence.
While we use appropriate technical and operational measures to keep your PII secure, the transmission of information via the internet is not within our control and is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee the security of your PII sent to us by email. Any such transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your PII, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Sharing your personal information
We do not sell, trade, or rent your PII to others. By using our services you give your general authority for us to transfer your PII to another party who may be required to help us in the provision of our services ("sub-processors") examples of which are set out below.
We may use third party service providers, such as Castlegate IT and Squeegee, to help us operate our business and the Sites or administer activities on our behalf.
We may share your PII with third parties for limited purposes. We will ensure that any third parties with whom we share your PII are also compliant with the relevant data protection regulations and we will provide you with details of our sub-processors on request. If you have any concern about any of our sub-processors' ability to comply with data protection legislation please advise us immediately and we will take the appropriate steps.
International transfers of your personal information
TMSDI uses the software platform (TMS Global) provided and maintained by its licensor, an Australian company, Bellcastle Pty Limited trading as Team Management Systems ("TMS"). We have a “data processing and transfer” agreement in place with TMS which complies with the data processing laws for transferring personal data outside of the UK under the laws of the UK and further to the EU GDPR in order to protect your PII.
TMSDI have a sister company in New Zealand, Team Management Services Limited, with whom we may share your PII when processing TLS360 Profiles. We ensure that the appropriate legal safeguards are in place in accordance with the GDPR. Team Management Services Ltd are aware of and are compliant with the EU Data Protection regulations including the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 ("GDPR").
If you wish to have a digital badge TMSDI can arrange for this to be provided subject to your prior written consent. This consent is required as we will have to send a copy of your personal data (name, email, type of accreditation & date of accreditation) to Credly (a company in the USA who provide digital badges) and to Bellcastle Pty Ltd in Australia. If a digital badge is requested we will provide you with further information to explain the possible risks of such transfers, if any.
Disclosures of PII without notice
TMSDI will disclose your contact information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
How long we hold your information for
We will hold your PII in accordance with any written agreement we have with you or your accredited facilitator and/or your organisation, otherwise for up to 5 years from when we last hear from you, or as otherwise specified by you in writing and then it will be deleted, unless otherwise required by law.

Where we are required by law to retain your PII we will continue to do so for as long as legally obliged to and no longer.

These are the right to: be informed; access; rectification; erasure; restrict processing; data portability; object to processing and rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling. (We do not carry out automated decision making and profiling.)
Right to access and/or rectification: if you would like a copy of some or all of your PII or you would like us to amend it, please:
Lawful basis for processing PII
We will only process your PII where we have a legal basis for doing so. There are a number of lawful reasons for processing personal data and those which are relevant to the processing which we carry out are:
Most of the processing we carry out in relation to your PII is done in order to fulfil our contractual obligations with you but we also have legal obligations to keep and use certain PII and/or
process your PII further to a legitimate interest and/or where we have received your express, informed consent.
If we are relying on the legitimate business interest basis for lawful processing be assured that we only do this where we have considered carefully the risks to your rights and freedoms (as we are required to do by the GDPR) and we will not process PII on this basis if we have any doubt that your rights might be adversely affected. We also revisit this assessment regularly and update our procedures according to our findings.
