Information collection and use

How do we collect information?

 Stratus Associates Ltd collects information in two possible ways:

  • When you directly give it to us (“Directly Provided Data”). When you contact us via our Contact Us Page, or communicate with us, you may choose to voluntarily give us certain information – for example, by filling in text boxes or completing registration forms. All this information requires a direct action by you at that time in order for us to receive it.

 When you give us permission to obtain from other accounts (“User Authorised Data”). Depending on your settings or the privacy policies for other online services, you may give us permission to obtain information from your account with those other services. For example, this can be via social media.

How long do we keep your data for?

Stratus Associates Ltd will not retain your personal information longer than necessary. We will hold onto the information you provide until a point that you inform us to remove your details from our mailing list or you unsubscribe.

Stratus Associates Ltd will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered as a result of providing us with your contact details, filling out the Contact Us page or any Newsletter Signup forms to anyone.

Choosing how we use your data

 We understand that you trust us with your personal information and we are committed to ensuring you can manage the privacy and security of your personal information yourself. With respect to the information relating to you that comes into our possession, and recognising that it is your choice to provide us with your personally identifiable information, we commit to giving you the ability to do all of the following:

  • You can verify the details you have submitted to Stratus Associates Ltd by contacting us. Our security procedures mean that we may request proof of identity before we reveal information, including your e-mail address and possibly your address.
  • You can also contact us by the same method to change, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by Stratus Associates Ltd.
