We request very little identifying information from you and only for a narrow set of purposes. Typically, identifying information is collected:
The type of personal information collected on the Site could include your name, address, email address, telephone number, user name and password. However, other information will be submitted when you respond to an online job application or register with the site.
Your participation is voluntary and you will not be required to provide more information than is necessary to participate in any of the Site’s activities. In any instance where non-mandatory information is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection.
In some instances, we may ask you questions on an aggregate basis (we don’t identify you personally with the information) and such questions will be identified on the site. In all other instances, you should assume that we track any information you provide on a personally identifiable basis.
We may occasionally request your postcode details in order to ensure that we only deliver information relevant to you and only where we have obtained your prior express permission to do so. We will NOT use your postcode information to generate a full postal address (where completion of full address fields are not requested), nor will we mail out literature related to our websites unless you specifically request us to do so.
When you register with the Site, you can elect to receive information and updates on our products and services by email. We use return email addresses to answer any emails that we receive, and we may use return email addresses to send you other information that you may request. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose.
We use information that you provide (individual and aggregate) to better design the Site and to improve our marketing strategy and our products. One method through which the Site collects aggregate information is the collection of IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from this site, our servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to us. To the extent such information is shared with third parties, please see “Our Privacy Practices With Third Parties” below.
You will have the opportunity to forward pages or information on the Site to friends. The information you provide to facilitate this email communication is used on a one-time basis and is not collected or retained by us. We make every practical effort to avoid excessive or irrelevant collection of data. If you believe the Site has collected excessive information, we encourage you to contact us.
You have the right to access personal data which you have submitted through the Site. We give you the following options for managing or removing your information from our database:
It is our policy to only disclose information to third parties under the following circumstances:
We share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about our users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. Subject to the above three circumstances, we do not provide any identifiable personal information to any third party for any purpose whatsoever. For example, we may tell a business partner the number of men and the number of women that entered a competition, but we do not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. Access by our employees and agents to your personally identifiable information is only on a need to know basis on the understanding that this is confidential business information.
Our intention is never to use or share personally identifiable information provided to us in ways that are different from the ways described above without also providing you with an opportunity to “unsubscribe” or prohibit such unrelated uses.
Any personal information we collect from this website will be used in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and other applicable laws.
We take reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you do so at your own risk.
Each case we negotiate is different but there are several key aspects of every Settlement Agreement. We will ensure the final document:
