A Cross-Disciplinary Approach.
At Quantico we train the world’s brightest minds. To do this requires an exceptional team, as well as several exceptions: for example, we don’t believe you need to have prior experience with a specific job in order to do it well. Instead, your talent is assessed by what you’ve done well by yourself – the side projects, the interests you take, the outlook you keep. What you need is a cross-disciplinary approach to learning and improving human communication. If that makes sense to you, we’re sure you’ll fit in easily here.
Under the circumstances of Force Majeure, Quantico Communications LLP will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of its obligations that is caused by events outside its reasonable control. Such events include but are not limited to any act, event, occurrence, omission, inclusion, and/or accident of any kind beyond Quantico Communications LLP’s reasonable control including, but not limited to, restrictions of law, regulations, orders, or other governmental directives, public and/or private disputes, acts of God, third party mechanical or other equipment breakdowns, fire, floods, terror attacks, public upheavals, riots, destruction of any kind, power cuts, interruptions or failures of telecommunications and/or digital transmission hardware and/or software, Internet failures or delays, storms, weather, delays in commuting, or other similar events.
Disclosure of Information.
Quantico Communications LLP works very hard to create a productive and enjoyable environment for our participants and members. Please respect the safety and well-being of everyone present (physically and digitally) in your workshop, course, tutorial, seminar, and/or session. We work with a wide range of people from different backgrounds, including government, private enterprise, social welfare groups, public communities, and individuals. Each and every person deserves to learn in a healthy, safe, and progressive environment. This is why, to the extent permissible by law in the Republic of Singapore, you must disclose if you are suffering and/or have suffered from any mental, emotional, behavioural, and/or physical condition or ailment that may adversely affect any person(s) and/or property within your area (physical and electronic) of influence.

Web Site Visitors.
Like most website operators, Quantico Communications LLP may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Quantico Communications LLP’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Quantico Communications LLP’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Quantico Communications LLP may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Quantico Communications LLP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Quantico Communications LLP blogs. Quantico Communications LLP only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Quantico Communications LLP may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Quantico Communications LLP may monitor Quantico Communications LLP’s blog site or use spam screened by spam-blocking software services to help identify spam. Quantico Communications LLP may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Quantico Communications LLP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Gathering of Personally Identifiable Information.
Certain visitors to Quantico Communications LLP’s websites choose to interact with Quantico Communications LLP in ways that require Quantico Communications LLP to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Quantico Communications LLP gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use Quantico Communications LLP’s contact forms to provide a name and email address. In each case, Quantico Communications LLP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Quantico Communications LLP. Quantico Communications LLP does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally identifying information.
Quantico Communications LLP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Quantico Communications LLP’s behalf or to provide services available at Quantico Communications LLP’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Quantico Communications LLP’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Quantico Communications LLP will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Quantico Communications LLP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Quantico Communications LLP believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Quantico Communications LLP, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Quantico Communications LLP website and have supplied your email address, Quantico Communications LLP may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Quantico Communications LLP and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Quantico Communications LLP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Quantico Communications LLP, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the event that Quantico Communications LLP goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Quantico Communications LLP may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to Quantico Communications LLP websites are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
