TACK International is committed to privacy for everyone who visits our website(s) or engages with us on TACK official social media.
Under the Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998, we must comply with certain regulations which are designed to ensure that any data you provide to us is processed with due care and attention.
What personal data do we collect?
We log your Internet Protocol (IP) address in order to receive and send information from and to you over the Internet.
When you register with us, access our website, sign up to any of our services, activities or online content, such as web chat or email newsletters, make an enquiry, book an open course with us, telephone, email or write to us, you may be asked to provide some personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and email address.
We automatically collect data about visitors to our website (for example on browsing patterns) by using cookies, explained below. This data is used only in an anonymous form; no individual is identified.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone web browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. A cookie cannot read data on your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies do not damage your system.
Each website can send its own cookie to your web browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on the TACK International website. You can set your browser so as to refuse any cookie or to alert you to when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept our cookies, some of the features of our site may not function as intended.
How do we use your personal data?
We use your personal data to supply our services to you or your organisation or to inform you about other offerings that may interest you and to deal with your requests and enquiries.
We use IP addresses and device identifiers to identify the location of users, to block disruptive use, to establish the number of visits from different countries and to determine from where you are accessing our services.
We may also use your personal data for analysis and research purposes so that we may improve the services offered by TACK International, for example, about our website visitors’ and clients’ demographics, interests and behaviour. We do this to improve our understanding of our visitors, clients and potential clients. This research is compiled and analysed on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with TACK International.
To whom might we disclose your personal data?
Generally, we will use your information within TACK International and will only share it outside of TACK International where you have requested it or given your consent, for example if you choose to share our content via social media.
We will not disclose your personal information unless we are obliged to do so or allowed to do so, by law, or where we need to do so in order to run our business (for instance where we outsource services to help fulfil your request(s) or to process any payment.)
Offensive or Inappropriate Content
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to TACK International websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any TACK International service, TACK International may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
Where TACK International reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), the company may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, email/internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
Will your data be used for Marketing Purposes?
TACK International will only send you emails, direct mail or otherwise contact you for marketing purposes, or to promote new services, activities or content where you have agreed to this. Where you have agreed to receive these communications, we may personalise the message content based upon any information you have provided to us and your use of the TACK International website(s).
You may at any time request us to stop using your personal data for direct marketing purposes, or unsubscribe from email communications. If you wish to do this please contact us.
Personal data processed for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.
Appropriate technical and organisational measures shall be taken against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, damage to, or theft of personal data.
No data transmission over the Internet or any other network can be guaranteed as 100% secure, but we take all the appropriate steps to try to protect the security of your personal data.
If you want to request any information about your personal data, please contact us.
Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to request a copy of the personal information that TACK International holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests and require you to prove your identity with 2 pieces of approved identification). We will use reasonable efforts to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files.
