GENERAL INFORMATION

 

OUR SECURITY

The security of your information is paramount to us.

We will keep your data securely to prevent unauthorised access by third parties. We use encryption or passwords for the storage and transfer of data. We also regularly review our measures to ensure they are up to date and in line with latest developments.

If you have a password to allow access to certain parts of our systems, you must keep that password safe and not share it with anyone, or your personal information could be at risk.

Please note that the transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure, and although we do our best to protect it, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information transmitted over the internet.

We will take every reasonable precaution to keep your information safe but it cannot be guaranteed and so please be aware that any information you do transmit to us is at your own risk. Once we have received your information we will use our best effort to ensure its safety.  We store information with our web hosting service, Zen, who is based in the European Economic Area, and within Google’s G Suite for Non-Profits  whose contractual commitments fully meet the requirements to legally frame transfers of personal data from the EU to the rest of the world.

We will only hold your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to carry out services and administer your relationship with us. Typically this is two years since your last interaction with us unless we are required to hold it longer for legal or taxation reasons.

If, and when, we dispose of your information it will always be done securely.

 

PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 16

We seek to protect the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under‚ please make sure you obtain a parent/guardian’s permission before providing us with personal information.

 

COOKIES

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally. These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task.
  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested.
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast.

 

THIRD PARTY WEBSITE LINKS & COOKIES

If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you that will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours.
