Thames Reach is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors; this policy sets out how we will treat your personal information.
(1) What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
(a) information about your visits to and use of this website;
(b) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us and/or subscribing to e-reach, our email newsletter; and
(c) information that you supply to us when completing online forms (including the rough sleeper referral form, job and volunteer application forms and our enquiry form), posting information in our discussion forums, commenting on individual pages, or responding to polls and quizzes.
(2) Information about website visits
We may collect information about you computer and your visits to this website such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability, and for marketing purposes.
We may send a cookie which may be stored on by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website, to improve the website’s usability and for marketing purposes. We may also use that information to recognise your computer when you visit our website, and to personalise our website for you.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookie by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
(3) Using your personal data
(a) send information (other than marketing communications) to you which we think may be of interest to you by email or similar technology;
(b) send to you marketing communications relating to our activities which we think may be of interest to you, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology. (You can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications to be sent by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.
(4) Other disclosures
(a) to the extent that we are required to do so by law;
(b) in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings; and
(c) in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).
(5) Security of your personal data
We will take reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure servers. You are responsible for keeping your password confidential. We will not ask you for your password.
