Staff will not collect sensitive information (health, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or sexual preferences) about customers.
Staff members will usually collect information directly from the customer, although sometimes they may acquire lists from other sources, both from other companies and documents open to the publicdomain.
The personal information collected may be used or disclosed for:
- Providing customers with the relevant Allbiz Supplies product or service, Managing or administrating the product or service or Performing other administrative tasks and functions including
- managing our business operations
- Providing information about our products and services which we expect may be of interest to customers
- Helping to develop products and services that may be of interest to the customer

It may not be possible to provide ongoing service to customers without the information they provide.
Our client database is kept confidential; no outside organisations have access to it. Customer’s personal information will not be sold or disclosed to any other organisations. Staff may disclose the personal information to service providers who provide services in conjunction with the business (eg: agents co-ordinating conferences, mailing houses, delivery companies), our insurers and organisations through which customers choose to make payment to us.
In the collection of any sensitive information (such as credit card data), the information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.

Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. Details such as these are destroyed as soon as they are processed.
Customers or staff’s information may be released where they have consented to the disclosure, where there is a duty to the public to disclose that information or where we are required to by law.
If an individual asks to see the information we hold about THEM (not others) we must show them.
As a business, we are committed to protecting both customers and staff’s privacy and will take realistic steps to keep personal information protected from loss and misuse and unauthorised access, modification and disclosure.
