2. How we collect information about you
When you visit our website we gather general information which might include which pages you visit most often and which information is of most interest to you. We may also track which pages you visit when you click on links in emails from us. We also use “cookies” to help our site run effectively. There are more details below – see ‘Cookies’.
We use this information to personalise the way our website is presented when you visit to make improvements and to ensure we provide the best experience for you. Wherever possible we use anonymous information which does not identify individual visitors to our website.
3. Information we collect and why we use it
We do not collect any sensitive personal information through the website.
4. Sharing your Information
We may be required to disclose your information by law (for example, to comply with applicable laws, regulations and codes of practice or in response to a valid request from a competent authority).
5. Keeping your information safe
We want to make sure that your information is safe with us and appropriately protected so we have put in place policies, procedures and controls to protect the personal information shared with us.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information using the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information sent to us this way, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our site.
Our website may contain links to other sites. Although we make every effort to ensure the websites we link to take your personal information seriously, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites. You should review the privacy policies of these sites when visiting them.
6. Your rights
You have a number of rights about how the personal information you provide can be used. These are:
Transparency over how we use your personal information (right to be informed).
The ability to request a copy of the information we hold about you, which will be provided to you within one month (right of access).
Update or amend the information we hold about you if it is wrong (right of rectification).
Ask us to stop using your information (right to restrict processing).
Ask us to remove your personal information from our records (right to be ‘forgotten’).
Object to the processing of your information for marketing purposes (right to object).
Obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purposes (right to data portability).
Not be subject to a decision when it is based on automated processing (automated decision making and profiling).
If you would like to know more about your rights under the data protection law, you can find out more at the Information Commissioners Office website.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
We do not currently carry out any automated decision-making.
Please note, some of these rights only apply in certain circumstances and we may not be able to fulfil every request.
