1. The information we collect and how we use it
Once you start using the site, we may track and keep a record of the pages you visit. We collect this data from groups of users to get a sense of how people are using our site and which topics are most popular. This helps us improve what we offer on our sites.
We feature a few sections where you can submit additional information in the Contact Us section. Participation is entirely voluntary. You may also, subject to availability, request materials and resources from the website either free or at a small cost.
1.2 IP addresses
Each time you use the internet, your Internet service provider assigns your computer a number called an IP address. This number may be the same or different each time you go online. The websites use visitors' IP addresses to gather general data about site traffic. Each time your computer requests information from our site, we log your IP address on our server. We cannot identify you from your IP address.
1.3 To whom will we disclose information about you?
We will not disclose your personal data to any third party other than:
- in the case of the HeadSmart project:
- those who provide IT and support services to us and only where bound by duties of confidentiality
Your personal data is stored in our databases which is only available to the web administrators and selected authorised people on a password protected basis.
2. How personal information stored and protected
We understand that the security of your information is important to you. We also understand that our success as a publisher on the web relies on our ability to communicate with you in a secure manner. We adhere to the highest standards of decency, fairness, and integrity in our operations. Where required we will use measures to authenticate your identity when you visit our site. We also take steps to protect your information as it travels the internet, and to make sure all information is as secure as possible against unauthorised access and use (for example, by hackers). We review our security measures regularly.
Despite our best efforts, and the best efforts of other firms, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet, or anywhere else.
Any email between you and HeadSmart is not encrypted. It will be stored securely within our corporate firewall (see below).
2.4 Data within our walls
The information we collect about people visiting the site is stored in secure environments that are not available to any other individual or party. We have mechanisms in place to protect data. One such mechanism is called a "firewall." A firewall is a barrier that allows only authorised traffic through. It safeguards our computer systems and your information. We also use system and application logs to track all access. We review these logs periodically and investigate any anomalies or discrepancies.
Once you have accessed the websites, we will store a temporary "cookie" on your computer, indicating that you are authorised to use the site. Cookies are small text files that are saved by your web browser and enable you to move throughout the site without having to sign in each time you look at a different page. We cannot identify you from these cookies. They simply tell us whether pages have been requested by the same person or two different people.
The cookies we use are "session cookies," which means they disappear when you shut down your Web browser. Use of this website is conditional on a session cookie being in place, and if you do not agree to this you should not use these websites.
More information about Cookies, including how to block them and/or delete them, can be found at http://www.aboutcookies.org.
