Archs will use the Information in a variety of ways, some of which will assist and enable Archs to provide its services to its clients and prospective clients. This may include Archs contacting you directly to monitor progress and to inform you of progress on a specific application and Archs publishing some Information (e.g. your name and country of origin) on certain pages of its websites for publicity purposes.
Archs may also in its sole discretion retain the Information and use it for direct marketing services, e.g. Archs may send marketing information to you. Such marketing information may relate to goods and/or services provided by Archs and/or third parties as well as goods and/or services provided by third parties which are entirely unrelated to your original requests.
Archs will not sell or rent your personal data to anyone. We will only send personal data about you to other organisations when we have your consent. This is only necessary when we need to share your information in order to provide information or services requested. However, we may disclose your personal data where we are required to do so by law or a court order.
You shall indemnify and keep Archs and Archs’s directors, officers, employees and agents fully indemnified against all actions, claims, proceedings, costs and damages (including any damages or compensation paid by Archs on the advice of its legal advisors to compromise or settle any claim) and all legal costs or other expenses arising out of any breach of any representations, warranties and/or undertakings or out of any claims by a third party based on any facts which if substantiated would constitute such a breach.
All Information provided by you will be kept as confidential and as secure as possible. The Information provided by you can only be exchanged between you, Archs and any third party to whom Archs decides to transfer the Information to for the purposes detailed above. Furthermore, as required by the Act, Archs follows strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of the Information which you have given to Archs, to prevent unauthorised access.
Archs uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of the Information. Archs treats personal Information as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorised access. Archs employees use many different security techniques to protect the Information from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the company. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.
