Website Privacy Statement
The Purpose of this privacy statement is to explain how RTGM Ltd (referred to hereafter as RTGM) processes personal data to fulfil its data protection responsibilities in general terms. The scope of this statement covers all related activities by the staff of RTGM.
The Role of RTGM in data protection terms is that of a data controller where it determines the purpose and use of the personal data being processed. Once received it becomes the responsibility of the privacy manager (PM) to ensure that it is processed in accordance with the latest UK data protection legislation.
The PM can be contacted using firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to The Privacy manager at Primavera Office, Lowgate, Fleet Hargate, Lincolnshire PE12 8LN.

The information being requested will be kept to a minimum and will only be used in relation to the purposes for which it is needed. This will be made clear at the time of data collection.
RTGM’s duty of confidentiality means that RTGM staff will treat clients’ personal data with respect and in confidence. It is only disclosed to staff that need to know it. RTGM uses reasonable organisational and technical measures to safeguard all personal data.
