What is Live Help?
Live Help is an on-line user and e-business support function providing technical and business support for the Damco website.
Live Help is designed to provide:
• online problem solving
• management of customer queries
• facilitate and ensure follow-up by the Damco organisation
Live Help is not intended to negotiate or settle on-line issues of commercial or contractual nature or the like matters. However, Live Help will relay and manage such matters internally in Damco to ensure follow-up- all to the benefit of our website users.
To the benefit of our website users, we will record and keep transcripts of all communications concerning support issues raised through Live Help.
This is done only to facilitate any repeated or recurring contacts on issues addressed earlier by the individual user and for internal education and training purposes. Transcripts will be stored in a secure and confidential manner, except as may be required to comply with prevailing law or judgments, awards, orders and the like, or to meet the well-founded and reasonable requests by a public authority, body or person, will be available only to Damco and the concerned user. Transcripts may be stored for approximately 7 years except where a user in writing has specifically requested its deletion.
You may update, change or opt for removal of information registered at www.damco.com or request to stop receiving our communications either by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send the changes to your local Damco office (use the Offices link on the website to your local Damco office and its contact details).
