Any personal information you supply to The Profile Group (UK) Limited ("we"/"us"/"our") when you use any of our websites ("Website") will be used in accordance with this Website Privacy Policy.

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our users while providing a personalised and valuable service. This Website Privacy Policy describes how and why we obtain, store and process data which can identify you. We may update this policy from time to time and shall indicate on the Website when changes have been made. If you have any requests concerning your personal information or any queries with regard to these practices please contact us by e-mail at dataprotection@profilegroup.co.uk.

The information we collect

Information is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our Website's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of the Website).

One example of information we collect indirectly is through Internet access logs. When you access the Website, your numeric Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs.

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways, one of which is through the use of cookies. We use cookies to remember you when you visit the Website to keep track of your browsing patterns and to build up a profile of how you and other users use the Website. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to the web browser, which enables the web server to collect information from the browser. Find out more about the use of cookies on www.cookiecentral.com.

Most browsers allow you to turn off cookies. If you want to know how to do this please look at the help menu on your browser. However, switching off cookies may restrict your use of the Website and/or delay or affect the way in which the Website operates.

Why we collect it

We collect information about you so that we can deliver the news and current affairs forward planning service ("Service") to you and personalise the Service that we provide to you. Depending upon your selections from our data capture options, and subject to your consent, we may arrange for you to be sent information about related products and services from us and our subsidiaries. As a registered user of the Website, you may update the answers to your questions at any time by editing your profile.

Who we disclose it to

We will only pass on information about you as an individual (as opposed to aggregate information) to third parties to enable us to perform the Service requested by you or with your prior consent. In certain circumstances we may need to disclose information about you if you breach this Website Privacy Policy or if you breach the Terms and Conditions. We may also disclose or access your account if required to do so by law or by any Governmental body.

Data Protection

We are registered with the Information Commissioner in the UK as a "data controller" in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998. Further details of the registration are available at http://www.dpr.gov.uk.

Security

Keeping information about you secure is very important to us and certain sections of the Website may encrypt data using Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") or a comparable standard. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secured. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Accessing and updating your personal information

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. A small fee may be chargeable. If you believe any of the information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete please email dataprotection@profilegroup.co.uk. We will promptly correct any information that is found to be incorrect.

Questions

If you have any questions or complaints relating to this Website Privacy Policy or how we use the personal information we have about you, please contact dataprotection@profilegroup.co.uk. We will endeavour to respond to you promptly.
