data protection and your privacy
Because online privacy and the protection of personal information are issues of concern to internet users, we make every effort to ensure that your use of our website is non-intrusive and legal. The following questions and answers should help you to understand what information we collect about you, how it is used and what steps we take to protect it.
what information do we collect?
We collect two kinds of information about our users:
i. Non-personal information such as IP address (the location of the computer on the internet), pages accessed and files downloaded. This helps us to determine how many individuals use our site, how many people visit on a regular basis, which pages are most popular, and which pages are least popular. This information doesn’t tell us anything about who you are or where you live; it simply allows us to monitor and improve our service.
ii. Personal information such as name, telephone number, email address etc. We collect this information only in connection with specific activities, such as enquiries. You do not have to disclose any of this information to use the site. The purpose of the ‘submit CV form’ is to collect information about you to place on the website candidate summary page in the appropriate section. The summary on the website will be a brief overview of your career to date, it will not include the names of your present or past employers, or your name, address or telephone number. Personal details will not be submitted to potential employers without your prior knowledge.
what happens to personal information collected?
Personal information submitted through the forms on our site is transmitted to our database, where it is stored in accordance with the Data Protection Act and your wishes.
how is the information used?
We use personal information to answer enquiries. We do not sell or rent personal information. We may from time to time use this information to offer you products and services which we feel you may benefit from. If you do not want use to do this please contact us by or by phoning the number below.
