This statement explains how we may collect and process information about:
● visitors to our website
● people who use our services e.g. clients or other subscribers to our online
● job applicants and our current employees
2. Submitting your contact details
On various occasions, including through forms on our website, we invite or request you to submit your contact details and other information about yourself or your organisation, or to send us emails which will, of course, also identify you.
3. How we use this information
In each case, the purpose for which you are invited to give us information is clear. We will not use your information for purposes that are not clear when you provide your details, and will not disclose it outside Stern Screening, except to service providers acting on our behalf or in other very limited circumstances, for example, with your agreement or where we are legally obliged to do so.
4. If you do not want to receive information from us
If we propose to use your details to send you information from Stern Screening about events or market developments which we believe may be of interest to you (other than information that you have specifically requested), we give you an opportunity to tell us that you do not wish to receive such information by ticking a box; alternatively, you can let us know your preferences by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by
contacting our administrator by telephone on +91 (124) 469 6708 or by post to Level-12, Building No.8, Tower-C, DLF Cybercity, Phase II Gurgaon-122001, Haryana, India
5. Transfer of information abroad
Stern Screening operates through its various local legal entities which we add to or reorganise from time to time. When you provide information to any part of Stern Screening you will in most cases be providing it to Stern Screening as a whole, and should be aware that it may be accessed from countries whose laws provide various levels of protection for personal data, not always equivalent to the level of protection that may be provided in your own country.
We have robust information security management systems in place to protect your personal information, maintaining internal information security and DPA.

9. Anti-money laundering policies and procedures
Our anti-money laundering (AML) policies are generally based on the highest standards that are required in the jurisdictions where we operate, and apply in relation to all of our business in all of our offices all over the world. The Firm conducts client due diligence enquiries on each new client and persons connected with them and conducts ongoing monitoring of existing clients. These enquiries are based on the FATF Recommendations, and the EU Fourth Money Laundering Directive, although if additional information is required by the local rules of any country where we are being asked to work, that information will also be obtained. Where necessary for these purposes, we seek relevant information from third party data suppliers.Where individuals have supplied personal data for this purpose we will only use it for that purpose and will keep it only as long as the relevant AML and data protection legislation requires.
Stern Screening also has internal procedures to ensure that any suspicions of money laundering are reported to the appropriate authorities where there is an obligation to do so. Compliance officers and other relevant staff are provided with training on these issues.
10. Voice calls
We record all voice calls to our London office switchboard but the recording ends when the call is transferred onwards.
