Synnex takes steps reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that the personal information, including credit related personal information, it holds is protected from misuse, interference and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Synnex holds personal information in both hard copy and electronic forms in secure databases on secure premises (including through locks, firewalls, encryptions, such as the Secure Socket Layer protocol, log-ins and passwords, and other physical and network security measures as appropriate), accessible only by authorised staff. Credit eligibility information, such as information Synnex receives from the CRBs for the purpose of assessing credit applications, is stored through equally secure methods. Staff are bound by security policies and confidentiality agreements, which are regularly revised and re-issued.
Synnex will destroy or de-identify personal information (whether through shredding hardcopy documents or permanently deleting from its systems or de-identifying electronically-held information) in circumstances where it is no longer required, unless Synnex is otherwise required or authorised by law to retain the information.
If you believe on reasonable grounds that you have been, or are likely to be, a victim of fraud, you may request the CRBs not to use or disclose credit related personal information they hold about you by contacting the CRBs on the details set out in paragraph 5.
