Along with our business and internal computer systems, this website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this.
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page or by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail, the data that you supply will not be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
If you decide to become a Member of PCPA and send the Join form on the Join page (click here to see this) or the Subscriber form on the same page, then the data you provide will be entered into our database and stored. If you do not give your consent to being sent marketing materials by email (by leaving the checkbox on these forms unchecked) then your data will be entered as normal but you will not be sent marketing materials.
The personal information you provide may include your name, e-mail address and telephone number as well as other information about yourself.
When you give us information about another person, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them and to consent to the processing of their personal data.
