  • Your company or institution name.
  • Your company logo.

Your Access To and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do this at any time by contacting us through our PAAG LinkedIn group.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries regarding:

  • the data we have about you, if any.
  • to change or correct any data we have about you.
  • to ask us to delete any data we have about you.
  • to express any concern you may have about our use of your data.


We take appropriate measures to ensure that all personal data is kept secure including security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal data to those at the PAAG who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

​We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

​Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we obviously cannot guarantee the safety of the internet. The security of your data transmitted through any online means is therefore subject to risks beyond our control and for which we cannot take responsibility.
