Notice of Collection

The remainder of this page outlines the types of information that TDC Global collects about our website users and clients, and how this information is used.
We distinguish in this policy between ‘personal data (data that is required to facilitate TDC Global work in user management which leads to the provision of good service for the benefit of our council and society), and ‘non-personal data’ (data regarding usage of the websites, and de-identified information extracted from the websites for analysis). We collect both personal and non-personal data through our websites and through third parties, either automatically, or by your providing this information to us during enquiring, signing up for our newsletter, or during the consultation phase to help us improve the info we will be providing you with.
