Disclosure of information to third parties

4. We do not generally disclose personal information we have collected from you through the Site to third parties. We may do so sometimes, in which case we will say so when the information is collected and you will be able to inform us that you do not want us to do this. This will not stop you enjoying the Site, you can simply tell us that you are happy for us to have the information so you can take part in the activities we offer, but that you do not want us to pass that information on.

5. Besides what we describe in this Privacy Policy, we do not maintain any personal information obtained from users through the Site in a retrievable form.

 

The information we collect and how we use it

6. We store and use your comments and the information you volunteer regarding your specified subject interests in order to shape our future strategy and also so that we might send you targeted information about new events and services from UKPHA in the future.

7. When you subscribe to receive any of our email newsletters we ask for your email address number so that we can send you the material that you want.

8. On all informative emails and newsletters that we send, we give you the option to unsubscribe.

9. When you enter competitions, we usually ask you for your name, email and residential address. This is so that we can let you know if you have won anything, send you your prize and let other people (such as other users of the Site, the public and our own employees) know about our competitions and their winners.

10. We monitor customer traffic patterns and Site usage to help us understand which areas of the Site are most popular so that we might better develop the design and structure of the Site. We track the following information on the Site anonymously, or as ‘aggregate’ data:

  • users’ ISP’s, the domain names of the pages from which users come to the Site
  • users’ browsers and operating systems

Unless you tell us otherwise, we may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to the Site, new UKPHA events, services and special offers we think you may be interested in.

13. We only keep the personal information you submit for these purposes until we have made use of it in these ways.
