Flagship Consulting is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to our website. In this policy, we’ve provided detailed information about when and why we collect your personal information, how we store and use it, and provided information about individuals’ rights.
What personal information do we collect and why?
We collect and process personal information as follows:
If you are one of our clients (or you work for one of our clients)
We may collect your contact and other personal information (name, email address, telephone number, biography) so that we can communicate with you about the services we provide or whilst providing the services.
If you provide or may provide goods/services to us or our clients
We may collect your contact and other personal information (name, email address, telephone number) so that we, and our clients, can communicate with you regarding the provision or possible provision of goods or services by you.
If you are invited/attend an event organised or managed by us
We will collect your contact and other personal information (name, email address, telephone number) to enable us and, if appropriate, our clients to communicate with you in relation to attending the event.
If you are a journalist/involved in the media
We will collect your contact details to enable us to communicate with you on behalf of or about our clients.
If you apply for a position with us
We may collect personal information about you in connection with any application for a position with us. In this case, we will explain in more detail how and for what purposes we intend to process the relevant personal information.
If you are an employee
Employees’ personal information is held on various internal systems. A privacy notice which sets out when personal information will be processed and has information about your rights, is provided at the start of employment.
Who else may have access to your Personal information?
Occasionally, we may need to share your Personal information with third parties. We will only share Personal information where we are legally permitted to do so.
If you are a client and supply us with Personal information, we will assume, unless you let us know otherwise in writing, that we can disclose your Personal information as far as we believe is reasonably necessary to provide our services, or as is required under applicable law. We may, for example, pass your personal information to third parties such as:
- the media, to enable us to communicate with them on behalf of or about you;
- event management companies, for management of an event, in which case your details (e.g. name, company, occupation) will only be used by the third party for that specific purpose;
- our business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors to provide our services to you;
- disclosures required by law or regulation: in certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose personal information under applicable law or regulation, including to law enforcement agencies or in connection with legal proceedings.
Where we process your personal information
We normally process personal information only in the UK or elsewhere in the EU.
How we look after your personal information
We have security measures in place to protect your personal information against unauthorised or unlawful use, and against accidental loss, damage or destruction.
We have strict confidentiality agreements (including data protection obligations) with any third-party service providers.

How long we keep your personal information
We only process Personal information for as long as it is needed for the purpose for which it was originally collected, and it is deleted after that unless we need to continue to process it to meet our legal obligations or for another legitimate and lawful purpose.
