Privacy Policy for Vantage Group™

This Privacy Policy applies to all of Vantage Group™ and it explains how we handle your information when you use our website (https://www.vantagegroup.com) or interact with us via email or social media.

This Privacy Policy is a general overview. We may provide additional information in specific circumstances, such as the point when you provide personal information. The lawful basis of our processing depends on your jurisdiction, but it is either implied consent, on the basis of you providing your information directly or making it available, or our legitimate interest in responding to your inquiries or requests, improving our website and other aspects of our business or considering your job application.

In some cases, the law requires or permits us to collect, use, disclose or retain your personal information without your consent. For example, we could receive a court order to produce information that contains your personal information. We will comply with those laws and will otherwise act responsibly when collecting, using, disclosing or retaining your personal information where permitted by law, including where we do so to investigate a breach of an agreement or law or for safety and security reasons.
