How we protect your personal information

 

Ipswich Skills Centre will take appropriate legal, organisational, and technical measures to protect your personal information consistent with applicable privacy and data security laws. When Ipswich Skills Centre uses a third-party service partner, that partner will be carefully selected and required to use appropriate measures to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information.

 

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet or a mobile phone network connection is not completely secure.

 

Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of the personal information you transmit to our website: any transmission is at your own risk. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, once we have received your information, we will employ appropriate technical security measures to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.

 

 

How we use cookies

 

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added, and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

 

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

 

Overall, cookies help to provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies.

 

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.

 

 

Links to other websites

 

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

 

 

When we may disclose to others

 

Ipswich Skills Centre reserves the right to disclose personal information about you, including your e-mail address, for reporting to government authorities, to parties in relevant legal proceedings as authorised by the presiding court or tribunal and otherwise to the extent required or explicitly authorised by applicable law. In certain special cases where permitted by local law, we may disclose your personal information:

 

  • When we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to you or otherwise injuring or interfering with Ipswich Skills Centre’s rights, property or operations, other users of this website or mobile application or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities

  • When we believe the law requires it, or in response to any demand by law enforcement authorities in connection with a criminal investigation, or civil or administrative authorities in connection with a pending civil case or administrative investigation

  • In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of a product line or division, a merger, consolidation, asset sale or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy

 

Personal information collected may be transferred to, stored and processed in your country of residence or any other country in which Ipswich Skills Centre, or its partners, maintain facilities or operate their business activities. This means that your information may be processed in countries with lower data protection standards than your country of residence.

Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.

 

Ipswich Skills Centre, or third-party companies acting on our behalf, may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration and to audit the use of our websites. We also may use IP addresses to identify users of our websites when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the websites’ terms of use or to protect our service, websites or other users.
