Privacy Policy

ECM Consulting respects each individual’s right to personal privacy. This website privacy notice
explains our policy for dealing with personal information that we collect through the website. By
accessing or using this website you acknowledge and agree to be bound by this privacy notice.
Throughout this notice, we refer to your “personal information” which means information which
identifies you as an individual or from which your identity can be reasonably ascertained. Your
home address and home telephone number are examples of personal information.
From time to time we will post any changes to this website privacy notice on this website. We
therefore encourage you to check this page from time to time.
In addition to the provisions of this website privacy notice, there may also be specific and
additional privacy provisions that apply to certain sections of the website. Because those
specific and additional provisions also relate to your privacy protection, we recommend that you
review them wherever they appear. In the event of any inconsistency between the provisions of
this website privacy notice and those other specific and additional provisions, the specific and
additional provisions will prevail.

Information Collected

The information about you, which we may collect through the website, includes the
following:
 information collected when you register, which may include personal information such as
your name and contact details;
 the content of electronic forms you submit via the website or requesting us to provide
services or information, or take action;
 any messages or comments you submit to us via the website – for instance via an email;
and
 information collected when you participate in an online career assessment appearing on
this website.
Children under the age of 18 who wish to submit a comment or idea must have their parents’ (or
legal guardians’) consent to do so. In common with many commercial websites, we may also
collect aggregated information which tells us about visitors to the website but not the identity of
those visitors.
For example, we may collect information in relation to:
 the user’s server address;
 the user’s domain;
 the date and time of the visit to the site;
 the pages accessed and documents downloaded;
 the previous site visited; and
 the type of browser used.
We use this information to count the number and type of visitors to the different pages on our
site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors like you. ECM Consulting will make no
attempt to identify users, correlate data collected as users or identify users browsing activities.

Use and disclosure of information

In addition to providing our services (including coaching and consulting services) to
you, we may use or disclose personal information that we collect about you:

 for the purposes for which it was collected;
 where you have consented to the use or disclosure;
 to maintain our relationship with you;
 for purposes related to our research, planning, service development, security and risk
management;
 where a third party acquires or wishes to acquire, or makes inquiries in relation to acquiring,
an interest in ECM Consulting; or
 to the extent that we are required or authorised by law to do so.
There will be occasions where ECM Consulting will need to disclose your personal information
to third parties to provide the service you have requested. For example, if you request that we
provide you with a professional resume, your personal information will be sent to one of our
Resume Consultants, who will carry out this work. We will take all necessary steps to ensure
our Consultants keep your personal information private and confidential at all times.

Links

This website may, from time to time, contain links to the websites of other organisations that
may be of interest to viewers. Linked websites are responsible for their own privacy practices
and you should check those websites for their respective privacy statements and terms of use.
We also make no representation as to accuracy or completeness of the information contained in
such third party websites. You should refer to our terms of use for more information.

Security

We use a number of mechanisms to protect the security and integrity of your personal
information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as
completely secure. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant
the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once any
personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that
information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

Access to information

If you wish to request access to any other personal information which we hold about you as a
result of our information collection practices outlined in this website privacy notice, please
contact us and provide as much detail as you can about the particular information you seek in
order to help us retrieve it. An access fee may be charged to cover our costs of providing the
information to you.

Contact details

If you have any questions or feedback about privacy or wish to make a complaint about the way
in which we have handled your personal information, please contact us.
