THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you. For example, it can include information such as your name, date of birth, email address, postal address, and telephone number.

We collect personal information when you ask about our activities, order products and services (such as publications and email newsletters), book onto a training day, seek assistance, make a donation to us, or otherwise give us personal information.

We may also monitor site visitor statistics. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns collected for system administration purposes and does not identify any individual.

We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any third parties.

COOKIES

Pieces of information transferred to your computer's hard disk from a website are known as cookies. They allow websites to store information about your browsing patterns, making the website more useful to you. Many major sites use cookies: in fact, they are commonly used throughout the internet to offer personalised services. Most browsers are automatically set to accept cookies. Each time you use a website, the cookie is accessed. This way, it can track the features you use and the pages and content that you view on the website to help personalise your experience.

At the current time we do not use cookies directly.  A third party, Paypal, uses cookies to store your shopping basket if you purchase something from the resources page, but they are used only for the purpose of that transaction. Another third party, Google Analytics, which measures our site statistics, also uses cookies to record if people are new or returning users, which pages people viewed etc.  But this does not provide us with any personal information -we do not know who is visiting us from these statistics.

You may disable cookie support on your browser if you wish.

We may also use your information for administrative purposes, to let you know about changes to our services or policies and as part of our fundraising activities. All information is processed according to the Data Protection Act.

Other than as set out in this policy or as required by law, your personal information is not shared with third parties or used in any other way.

INFORMATION SECURITY

When we collect your personal information we use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access. However, no data transmission over the internet is 100% secure. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you accessed the third party website using links from our website.
