MARJO’s Privacy Policy

Effective January 1, 2010

Protecting your privacy

MARJO is committed to protecting your privacy. MARJO will only collect, use, disclose and store any personal information in accordance with its legal obligations and this privacy policy.

What personal information do we collect and why do we need it?

To enable us to perform our core business functions which include providing environmental, health, safety, risk and social consulting services, we need to collect personal information such as your:

  • name;
  • address (and previous address);
  • date of birth;
  • gender;
  • occupation;
  • contact information, including work, home and mobile telephone numbers; and
  • account details and other financial information.

We use this information to achieve our business and administrative purposes and to send you material about MARJO.

If you choose not to provide your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the consulting services offered by, or any information about, MARJO.

How do we collect personal information?

We collect your personal information in person, in writing, by telephone, through our website (marjoenvironmental.com) and by other electronic communication. We collect this information through our staff and through our contracted agents and other service providers.

We may need to ask you or others further questions to verify the correctness of the information collected and to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, modification, disclosure or other misuse.

Wherever practicable, we will ask you for your personal information directly. However, we may need to contact others such as your employers, business associates, bankers, credit reference agencies and referees.

Who will see or have access to your personal information?

Unless we are required to provide your personal information to others by law, by court order or to investigate suspected fraud or other unlawful activity, your information will only be seen or used by persons working for us.

You consent that your information may be collected, stored, retained or processed outside of the country in which you are located.

Our information systems and files are kept secure from unauthorised access and our staff, agents and service providers have been informed of the importance we place on protecting your privacy and their role in helping us to do so.

You can also help us protect your personal information by taking precautions when using the Internet. It is a good idea to regularly change any passwords and to use a secure browser.

What if I want to check what personal information you hold about me?

Subject to any legal restrictions we are happy to advise you of what personal information we hold about you on request. If your request is particularly complex or requires detailed searching of our records, there may be a cost to you in order for us to provide this information.

If you believe there are errors in our records about you, please let us know and we will be happy to investigate and correct any inaccuracies.
