Privacy and cookie policy

Allen Brown Consulting Ltd (ABC) has a very simple policy regarding personal data. The only data we collect is the names, addresses and contact details of our clients and suppliers. We do not hold or process data relating to third parties, such as scheme members, and never have done. We will create web applications that process personal data, but those applications are developed using test data, and will be handed over to our clients before being used to process live data. If somebody mistakenly sends us personal data, even encrypted data, our policy is to immediately delete it. Unless you have contacted ABC and provided us with your contact details, we do not have your data.

What data we do have is kept securely, and we never share that data with anyone else.

And that's it really. Much as I'd like to drone on for another thousand words about GDPR and issues of consent, there really isn't anything else to say. Except about cookies.
