How GSD Protects Your Information
Personal information may be stored by GSD in hard-copy documents or electronic format. We are committed to keeping personal information secure and safe, and take reasonable steps to ensure that hard copies of personal information, and personal information stored on computers is appropriately protected from misuse, loss, modification, unauthorized access or disclosure. We use reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information you provide to us against loss, misuse, or unauthorized access.

Access to Personal Information
You may request access to the personal information that GSD holds about you by contacting our Privacy Officer. GSD will acknowledge your request within ten (10) business days of the request being made.
If access to your personal information is granted, access will usually be provided within seven (7) business days of our acknowledgement. Should the timeframe to provide you with access to your personal information extend beyond this period, you will be notified accordingly. You will need to verify your identity before access to your personal information can be granted. Furthermore, whilst GSD cannot and does not charge a fee to individuals who apply to access their personal information, we may charge a fee for actually giving individuals access to their personal information in their preferred format (where reasonable and possible), which will cover our costs involved in locating and collating their personal information, as well as reproduction costs.
If access to your personal information is denied, we will advise you in writing of the denial of access and the reasons for such within seven (7) business days of our acknowledgment.
