Data Protection and Privacy Statement
This is our website privacy statement. Please read it carefully as you should only submit information through this site if you agree that we may use it in accordance with this privacy statement.
We collect certain information about you when you visit our website. We recognise the importance of both keeping that information secure and letting you know what we intend to do with that information. We may amend our privacy statement to reflect changes to our business, website or to data protection legislation. We therefore ask that you revisit this privacy statement on a regular basis to ensure you are familiar with its terms. This privacy statement only applies to our website; if you follow a link out of our site or leave our site in some other way, this privacy statement will no longer apply.
Who we are
We are BlueShare Ltd, a company registered in England & Wales under company number 09574664.
The information we collect
We collect information from when you use our site in the form of traffic data. We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and aggregate information. This is statistical data about browsing actions and patterns to enable us to improve the website and does not identify any individual.
We collect information you give us when completing the ‘Contact’ section. Where we would like more information to help us improve our services, over and above the basic required information, it will be clear that your response is voluntary and you are free not to provide us with more information if you would prefer not to do so.
Certain pages of our website are monitored for the purpose of reporting web traffic, statistics, advertisement ‘click-throughs’ and/or other activities on our website.
What we do with your information
How we use it
We use your information to provide you with that which you have requested. We may, from time to time, use your details to send you information about other products and services that may be to your interest.
You may ask us to remove you from our mailing lists at any time by writing to us at our registered office. We will also offer you the option of correcting your details and of being removed from our mailing list when we send you alerts or other information.
When we share it
We disclose your information to third parties in certain circumstances but we will not sell, rent or trade personal information. We may share your information with other organisations that buy our company or assets, or another organisation from which we acquire a company or business and in the course of any preceding negotiations from which we may or may not lead to sell. We may share your information with our funders or potential funders such as our bank and with professional advisers who have a reasonable need to see such information.
We may share your information with any group of companies of ours as defined under the Companies Act 2006 so that they can provide any products and services to you where you have personally requested them or where we feel such information is necessary to keep you informed of any products or services that they believe will be of interest to you. We may provide anonymous aggregated data to reputable third parties on a commercial basis.
We may give third party providers who supply services to us, or who process information on our behalf, incidental access to your information but will always take steps to ensure their security measures are adequate to protect your information. We will disclose your information to enforcement authorities if asked to do so, or to a third party in the context of actual or threatened legal proceedings or if otherwise required to do so by law.
Personal Data Requested
To contribute to the content on this website (either forum posts or website articles/links) all we require is that when registering you confirm you are 16 or over, you choose a unique username, a personal password and you enter your valid email address so you can collect your account activation code by email. You should not use any personally identifiable information (such as your real name) as your username.
If you use the forums, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected or used by other visitors to these forums. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
How we keep it secure
Only authorised personnel and contractors have access to your information. We will keep your information secure by taking appropriate technical and organisational measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against its accidental loss, destruction or damage.
Transfer outside Europe
Data protection legislation is harmonised throughout the European Economic Area (EEA) which comprises the EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Countries outside the EEA do not generally have the same level of protection for personal information as those within the EEA.
If you are from outside the EEA, we will transfer your information to your home country or territory for the purposes set out in “How we use it” above. If you provide us with your information, we will assume you have agreed to this transfer. If you are from the EEA, we will not transfer any personal information we collect to outside the EEA.
Finding out more
If you have any questions about our privacy statement or the information we hold about you, please contact our Data Protection Compliance Officer. You have a legal right to see a copy of the information we hold about you on payment of a fee, which is currently £10.
Further information about data protection issues can be found at the Information Commissioners Office.
