2. How we use your information
The information collected will be used to:
We may share non-personal data (including aggregated statistics and group data) about traffic patterns of our website visitors with partners or other third parties. We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to any third party advertisers on our website, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregated information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1). However, we do not sell or share any information or personal data about individual users.
We may also use your information to administer our website and for our own internal operational and administrative purposes, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, and as part of our efforts to keep our website safe and secure. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website.
By using our website, you agree that we have the right to share your personal information with:
3. What are cookies
As with most other commercial websites, our website uses a standard technology called ‘cookies’. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve our website and to deliver a better and more personalised service.
A ‘cookie’ is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, unless (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.
We also use web server logs to collect information about your use of this website, whether you register with this website or not.
Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website.
We may collect information about your computer, including where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration purposes, and to report aggregate information to any third party advertisers on our website. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
Together with any third party advertisers on our website, we may also use small pieces of code called ‘web beacons’ or ‘clear gifts’ to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them.
5. How we use information that we collect from cookies
As you browse on our website, the website uses its cookies to differentiate you from other users, in order to make sure you don't see the same content repeatedly, to deliver content specific to your interests, and to help provide you with an excellent user experience.
Cookies, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, also allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and to check which parts of the website are most popular. This helps us gather feedback in order constantly to improve our website and better serve our customers. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.
6. Your rights
In addition to the company’s safeguards, your personal data is protected in the UK by the Data Protection Act 1998 (and any legislation or regulations that supersede this) (the DPA). The DPA provides, amongst other things, that the data we hold about you should be processed lawfully and fairly. It should be accurate, relevant and not excessive. The information should be kept up to date, where necessary, and not retained for longer than is necessary. It should be stored securely to prevent unauthorised access by other people. You also have the right under the DPA to access information held about you.
7. Changes to this policy
We reserve the right to amend this policy at any time, and any changes to this policy or updated versions will be posted here. Please check back frequently to see if any changes or updates have been made.
8. Your consent
This website has stringent security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
We treat all data that we hold with the utmost care and security. Subject to the terms of this policy and any contract that we have in place with you, any details you provide to us or that we store will remain confidential.
The data that we collect from you will be stored on our secure servers. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. While we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website, and any transmission is therefore at your own risk.
10. How to opt-out
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes and to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the point where we request information from you. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes, or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. To remove user information from our database so that you do not receive future communications you can email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time or use the ‘unsubscribe’ link on any emails that you receive from us.
Our website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies, and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these carefully before you submit any personal data to those websites.
