Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How we use your data

We do not transmit or sell any protected data for marketing purposes. We may use your information in order to administer our business, provide a service to you or optimise those services, for example:

  • responding to enquiries,
  • monitoring and analysing online trends through Google Analytics and website log files, or
  • processing payments or compiling company financial information

We may also use or disclose your information to third parties engaged by us or you, for the purposes of administering our business or when conducting business on your behalf. Each third party service provider will have it’s own individual privacy policy which governs their management of the data we provide to them. We do not manage or control third party policies in any way, and by consenting to collection under this policy, you consent to the management of your information as outlined in third party policies.

We may share personal information for the purposes of providing a service that is specific to the needs of a particular project or situation, such as contractors or consultants, site workers, financial institutions, venue staff or other service providers. We will endeavour to inform you before we provide your information to a newly identified third party however there are circumstances where this may not be possible, such as an emergency, where it is unlawful, where it may cause harm to an individual or when we were not reasonably able to do so. In this case, we will provide you with details as soon as we are reasonably able to do so after the event.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

 

 

Additional information

How we protect your data

We are committed to ensuring your information is kept secure and is appropriately managed. Your data will only be transmitted or stored where necessary as part of business operations or as required by law. The systems used to collect, transmit and store data, such as our email servers, web servers and our information management system, are secured through encrypted channels, accessible only by authorised employees, and managed by senior staff as administrators.

Our information management system, the primary tool used for managing data pertaining to business operations, is provided by Notion. The following is taken from Notion’s Privacy Policy which outlines their current approach to ensuring the security of data:

  • “We use SSL everywhere, within the data center and out.
  • Your data is encrypted at rest in our database.
  • We run 100% on the cloud, within a virtual private network that cannot be accessed via the public internet, except via our public-facing proxy servers.
  • We perform quarterly independent security audits using established security firms.
  • We will notify you within 72 hours of learning about a data breach.
  • All employees receive regular security training.
  • We are in the process of obtaining our SOC2 certificate.”

Whilst we endeavour to take all reasonable steps to ensure your data is secure, it is impossible for us to provide 100% assurance that breaches won’t occur. However, should there be one, it will be managed in accordance with best practice and the law, including any Notifiable Data Breach policy provisions.
