Cookies and Privacy

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.

Our website uses cookies. By using our website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.

  1. This privacy policy

    This privacy policy was made using an SEQ Legal privacy policy template created for http://www.employmentlawcontracts.co.uk

  2. What information do we collect?

    We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

    1. information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, website navigation;
    2. information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods or services;
    3. information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us;
    4. information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters;
    5. any other information that you choose to send to us.
  3. Cookies

    A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (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. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

    We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit.

    Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

    We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html.

    Please note that during your visits to our website you may notice some cookies that are not related to directly to us. When you visit a page with content embedded from YouTube, Flickr or one which has a "Share" button, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. We have no control of these cookies and you should check the third party websites for more information about these.

    We will not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you. However, if you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by this site, or indeed any other website, you can do this through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how.

    For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.

    Cookies We Use

    We use Google Analytics to monitor traffic levels, search queries and visits to this website. Google Analytics stores IP address anonamously on its servers in the US, and neither Strawberry or Google associate your IP address with any personally identifiable information. These cookies enable Google to determine whether you are a return visitor to the site, and to track the pages that you visit during your session.

  4. Using your personal information

    Personal information submitted to us via this website will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website.

    10. deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website.

    We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.

  5. Disclosures

    We may disclose information about you to any of our employees insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy policy.

    In addition, we may disclose your personal information:

    1. to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
    2. in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
    3. in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk);
    4. to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

    Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

  6. International data transfers

    Information which you provide may be transferred to countries which do not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the European Economic Area.

    In addition, personal information that you submit for publication on the website will be published on the internet and may be available, via the internet, around the world. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.

    You expressly agree to such transfers of personal information.

  7. Security of your personal information

    We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

    We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from us will be encrypted.

    Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.

    You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to the website).

    You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to:

    1. the payment of a fee (currently fixed at £20.00); and
    2. the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity [(for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address)].

    We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.

    You may instruct us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes by email at any time. In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.
