Higham Hill Muslim Community Trust is a complex business network that connects millions of users. Higham Hill Muslim Community Trust manages a business eco system that brings together employees, companies and customers. This network relies on the exchange and sharing of information that is important to others in your network. Tracked hours, attendance status, employees, departments are all vital to other people that work with you. These are the official history of work done and moneys paid.
The complexity and connected nature of the system requires that this history exists in perpetuity to accommodate proper function and accounting for the other systems that you have connected to like payroll and accounting systems. Higham Hill Muslim Community Trust cannot guarantee the deletion of all your information.
When a customer chooses to close an account, we will remove your information from our marketing and billing systems. This will ensure that there are not further mailings or billings directed towards the cancelled user.
As we continue to refine Higham Hill Muslim Community Trust we will establish a method for the complete removal of all user information from the system without breaking accepted accounting principles for other connected Higham Hill Muslim Community Trust accounts. This document will evolve as these new methods are defined and tested for permanent account deletion. Users wishing to be notified when this development is complete can indicate their wishes via support@ hhmct.org.uk.
