Collection of solicited personal information

Collection of unsolicited personal information

1)  If makingtime receives an individual’s personal information in circumstances where this information has not been requested, then we will, as soon as reasonably practical, determine whether or not such personal information is relevant to its Functions and Activities.

2)  If makingtime would not ordinarily have collected this information, then it will be destroyed, if it is lawful and reasonable to do so.

3)  If makingtime retains unsolicited personal information, because it is necessary and related to its Functions and Activities, then it will inform an individual of the fact that it has collected this information and the circumstances of this collection, and the terms of this Privacy Policy will then be applicable to that personal information.
