Our Data Protection Policy recognises two kinds of personal data that deserve different levels of protection:

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 GTC Management (UK) Ltd with Sensitive Data, we will protect that information with extra care. We will not distribute Sensitive Data outside of GTC Management (UK) Ltd, if you so request, and will give you the chance to opt out of sharing this information within our own organisation.
GTC Management (UK) Ltd 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.

Opt Out: 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.

Security: 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.
GTC Management (UK) Ltd will not sell personal data in any form, including mailing lists. All its data are for internal use only.
