Information we collect
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.
Please contact us if you would like any more information regarding 'cookies' or what happens to your information.
Why we collect this information
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
- Allowing storage of you Basket contents locally.
We use reputable third party technologies to manage elements of our activities including Google Analytics. We may therefore be required to disclose your information to these companies for such purposes. Google Analytic’s terms at the time of writing are at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html.
How long we keep this information
We make sure that all our data is accurate and up-to-date and we only intend to keep data as long as necessary.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. 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.
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act.
