When you supply any personal information to Sigma (e.g. when ordering products or services) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data We must collect the information fairly and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else. In general, any information you provide to Sigma will only be used within Sigma. It will never be supplied to anyone outside Sigma without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it. Also, if you post or send offensive or inappropriate content anywhere on or to Sigma and Sigma considers such behaviour to be serious and/or repeated, Sigma can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour.
