At Aberley, we want to earn and retain the trust of all our clients using our services and visiting our website. In particular, we want you to be assured that we hold information only for the purposes of delivering our services to you or for some targeted marketing. There are limited circumstances in which we may share information with our partner organisations (for delivery of SUSs for instance) but this is never done without your prior permission. We also never sell, rent or trade e-mail or other contact lists with other companies for marketing purposes. We don’t like it when someone does it to us so we won’t do it to you.
Cookies: these come in different types:
Navigation cookies are simply those that allow you to move around as you click through our site. Performance cookies collect anonymised information for us on pages visited. Third party cookies come into play if you choose to link on to another site: tweeting an article, for instance, and will be controlled by that third party’s policy. You can set your browser not to allow cookies although it may limit some navigation around the site. Generally nothing about the cookies we can see is linked to you as an individual.
Google Analytics: we do use this service to collect standard information on visitor numbers, dates and the pages they view. Again it cannot be used to identify individuals by us. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
Client data: apart from our website, we do hold information which may go to the level of individuals’ names, roles, contact details and location in an organisation. That information is always held with the express permission of each client for the delivery of a contract and is often held for a pre-agreed term only (sufficient to deliver our services to that client).
Aberley events: we may use Eventbrite on occasion to send out invitations to our contacts. We do not collect any information from that process except acceptances or rejections of those invitations. For more information, please see https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/privacypolicy/
Under GDPR, you are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. E-mail your request to our data protection officer David Conway at firstname.lastname@example.org (Note that requests on information on individuals as part of an organisation’s contract with Aberley should be addressed first to the DPO in that company who will raise it with us.)
This policy will be reviewed at least annually and was uploaded in June 2018.
