Privacy Policy

Your personal information is important to us and it is our policy to respect and protect your personal information.  

This Privacy Policy outlines how we collect, use, manage and share personal information, including special or sensitive personal data, that we collect through our internet-based platform, accessed via our website at www.tasconnect.com (the “Platform”), as well as personal information collected from time to time from other lawful sources.  It also tells you how you can exercise your privacy rights.

If you have any questions or concerns about our use of your personal information, then please contact us using the contact details provided at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. 

1.What personal information do we collect about you?

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you or that we can link to you and which we have in our possession or control.  

The types of personal information that we collect about you, directly or indirectly,  typically include: your name, contact details, your employer or organisation that you represent and certain details related to your employment, e.g. your job designation and work related contact details. 

We collect or receive personal information in a few different ways:

Information you provide to us: We collect personal information from your interactions with us via the Platform (for example, when you register as a user, when you communicate with us or other parties on our Platform or where you have consented to our Customer providing such information to us) or personal information that you otherwise give to us (for example, when you email us or contact us via other channels).  Often, you choose what personal information to provide to us, but sometimes we require certain information in order for you to use, and for us to provide you and/or the organisation you represent with, the Platform and our services. 

Information we obtain from other sources: From time to time, we may also collect or receive information about you from third party sources such as publicly available databases, credit reference agencies and other lawful sources. We may collect this information to assist us in providing, evaluating and improving our Platform, products and services, or to help us comply with legal and compliance requirements including but not limited to compliance with anti-money laundering and sanctions regulations. We will only collect information from third party sources where these third parties have represented that you gave your consent to disclose your personal information with us or that they are otherwise legally permitted or required to disclose your personal information to us.

We may also collect precise geolocation data pertaining to your device, if you have consented to providing this to us through your device settings. We may use this information to provide, promote, and improve our services (for example, understanding the country you reside in) and for related reasons, such as sanctions, fraud prevention and security purposes. Please note that if you do not consent to providing your geolocation data, certain features of the Platform may not work. 

The information we collect automatically enables us to better understand the visitors who come to our Platform, where they come from, and what content on our Platform is of interest to them. This enables us to improve the quality and relevance of our Platform to our visitors.
