This page outlines the terms and conditions and data policy for the usage of this website.
Any personal information that you provide on this website is controlled by The Oxford Development Centre Ltd (“OXDEV”).
Your personal information
Occasionally you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name, address and email address) in order to receive or use services on our websites. Such services include events, newsletters, publications, information and advice.
By entering your details in the fields requested and pressing ‘Submit’, you are consenting to the processing of your information by OXDEV and its agents in accordance with this Data Policy. You may also provide personal information to us when you contact us by email, telephone or letter. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. Our services are designed to give you the information that you have requested. OXDEV will, at all times, act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.
Use and storage of your personal information
When you supply any personal information to OXDEV we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that information. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it.
This Data Policy explains how we will use your personal information.
We will use personal information provided by you or gathered by OXDEV for the following purposes:
• To process and respond to requests, enquiries and complaints received from you;
• To provide services requested by you;
• To communicate with you about services provided to you;
• To update our records;
• To analyse trends and profiles;
• For audit purposes;
• To carry out customer satisfaction research;
• To prevent or detect fraud;
• To enable third parties to carry out any of the purposes above on our behalf.
If you are notified that your personal information may be used to allow OXDEV to contact you for ‘service administration purposes’, this means that OXDEV may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended or changed.
We will not contact you for promotional purposes unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out above and we will remove it when the purposes have been met, unless you opt-in for future communications with us.
Where you have opted-in to future communications, we will, on each subsequent communication, offer you an easily executable ‘opt-out’ option, which will allow you to remove yourself from any future mailings.
Under the GDPR you, as the data subject, have certain rights with regards to the way your data is held. These consist of:
1. The right to be informed
2. The right of access
3. The right to rectification
4. The right to erasure
5. The right to restrict processing
6. The right to data portability
7. The right to object
8. Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
Each of these rights are supported by appropriate procedures within OXDEV that allow the required action to be taken within the timescales stated in the GDPR.
Sharing of your personal information
OXDEV may share your personal information with third parties in the following ways:
• We sometimes use agents and service providers to process personal information on our behalf. For example, we use third parties to [carry out inspections, to send postal mail, to carry out credit checks and to maintain our IT systems]. Where we use agents and service providers to process your personal information, we will ensure that they have adequate security measures in place and are governed by our privacy policies in respect to the use of your personal information.
• We will release your personal information when we are required to do so by law.
• We will release your personal information to others when you have given your consent to that release.
• OXDEV may occasionally present a promotion that is sponsored by a third-party company. To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share that information with the sponsor(s) we will make this clear at the point of collection of your information.
In some circumstances we may transfer your personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area, where data protection safeguards are not as high as they are in the UK. If this occurs we will ensure that adequate procedures are put into place to protect your personal information.
Site visitation tracking
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. We consider Google to be a third party data processor and they have their own privacy policies and GDPR compliance systems in place which you can learn more about here.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to enable you to visit other websites of interest easily. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
