Corp Hotline is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this fundamental obligation, Corp Hotline is committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information (sometimes referred to as "personally identifiable information" or "PII") that has been collected through its web sites. Generally, our intent is to collect only the personal information that is provided voluntarily by reporters and visitors (“reporters”) to our web site so that we can offer services to those individuals. Please review this Online Privacy Statement ("Online Privacy Statement" or "Privacy Statement") to learn more about how we collect, use, share and protect the PII that we have obtained.
We do not automatically collect personally identifiable information from reporters. However, we obtain personal information about you if you choose to provide it. By registering and/or submitting personal information on our web sites, you are also agreeing to the use of this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards.
Corp Hotline generally collects only the personal information necessary to fulfil the reporter’s request. Where additional, optional information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.
Corp Hotline only collects "sensitive" personal information when the relevant individuals voluntarily provide us with this information or where such information is required or permitted to be collected by law or professional standards. Sensitive information includes personal information regarding a person’s race, ethnicity, political beliefs, trade union membership, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal record. Please use your discretion when providing sensitive information to Corp Hotline, and under any circumstances, do not provide sensitive information to Corp Hotline, unless you thereby consent to Corp Hotline’s use of that information for its legitimate business purposes and consent to the transfer and storage of such information to and in Corp Hotlne’s & Partner databases. If you have any questions about whether the provision of sensitive information to Corp Hotline is, or may be, necessary or appropriate for particular purposes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognise and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which reporters appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information may also be used in aggregate form to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.
You have the choice of deciding whether to accept cookies or not. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies. However, please be aware that if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to fully experience some of our Web site features.
A web beacon is a small image file on a web page that can be used to collect certain information from your computer, such as an IP address, the time the content was viewed, a browser type, and the existence of cookies previously set by the same server. Corp Hotline only uses web beacons in accordance with applicable laws.
You have the option to render some web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies. The web beacon may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address but cookie information will not be recorded.
We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional standards.
Corp Hotline may also disclose PII in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates, in order to respond to requests of government or law enforcement agencies or where this is required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. These disclosures may also be needed for data privacy or security audits and/or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat. Corp Hotline does not sell PII to any third parties. Also, Corp Hotline will not transfer the PII you provide to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.
Corp Hotline understands the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in an online environment. In particular, our sites are not intentionally designed for or directed at children under the age of 13. It is our policy never to knowingly collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13, except as part of an engagement to provide professional services.
If you have submitted personal information to Corp Hotline, under most circumstances you have the right to reasonable access to that data to correct any inaccuracies. You can also make a request to update or remove information about you by contacting email@example.com and we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable laws and professional standards.
Corp Hotline has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorised loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Despite Corp Hotline’s best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. To the best of our ability, access to your personal information is limited to those who have a need to know. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
Corp Hotline may modify this Privacy Statement from time to time to reflect our current privacy practices. When we make changes to this statement, we will revise the “updated” date at the top of this page. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed about how Corp Hotline is protecting your information.
