Personal Data

Any personal data relating to you gathered by us in the registration process or during your use of the service will be recorded and only be used in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.

The website uses various order and registration forms to enable you to request information, products and services.

When you register for the secure sections of our website you will need to provide us with information such as your name, postal address, e-mail address and password.

Any personal data we collect during registration is designed to allow us to personalise the site for you and give you access the right kinds of information.

If you register, request further information or contact us we may keep a record of that correspondence and incorporate the information it contains into our database(s).

Internet security

The webserver that hosts this site is not used to store personal information of any kind.

Any personal information that you do provide is stored on a separate and secure database server within the College’s firewall. There is no direct link between this database server and the internet and access is strictly limited to internal College IT staff and authorised site administrators only.

Access to certain areas of the site is limited to specific registered user groups only. Registering as an accepted applicant or active is restricted; we will verify your status before granting a user account of this type. If your status changes then your user account may be withdrawn or downgraded to ‘general visitor’ without further notice.

Whilst we do not directly track or record your usage of this website, in the event that we become aware that site security has been compromised as a result of external activity (including but not limited to external security attacks) we shall take reasonable measures which we deem appropriate. This includes but is not limited to internal investigation and reporting, and notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities.
