When you contact RDS London we may ask you for your contact details, which include your name and a method of contact such as your address. This personally identifiable information is stored securely by RDS London and only members of the RDS London staff are able to access this information. No personally identifiable information provided to RDS London will be passed on or otherwise distributed to any third party (any organisation or person outside RDS London) by RDS London staff, except where individual consent has been sought and granted.

All information that you provide us with will be treated in the strictest confidence. Your contact details are collected to facilitate our advice provision. These details will be used for various analyses of the service and in reports to other organisations. The information presented from the analyses will be anonymous and will not be linked to any personally identifiable information.

Subscription applies to the RDS London monthly e-bulletin. The information you give will be used solely for the purpose specified at the time of collection and will be passed to a mailing house which will distribute the e-bulletin on behalf of RDS London. The data cannot be accessed except by those specified above. RDS London will solely collect data which is required for the purpose for which it is requested, or which will help to provide a more valuable service for the user.

If we decide to change our Data Protection and Privacy Statement, we will post details of any changes on this section of the website.
