1) Cookies Policy

The simplypersonnel.co.uk site (‘the Site’) is owned by Croner Group Limited. This Cookies Policy (“The Policy”) is designed to tell you about our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via this Site. Please be sure to read this entire Policy before using or submitting information to the Site.

Your Consent

Whenever you submit information via the Site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Policy.

Information Collection

Like many web sites, the Site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on).

Some areas of the Site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as e-mail alerts or newsletter subscriptions). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what for.

As you navigate through a web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags and navigational data collection.

IP Addresses

The Site uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non- personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to the Site, and administer and improve the Site.

Cookies

The Site uses “cookies”. A cookie is a small text file that’s stored on your computer, tablet, or phone when you visit a website that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.

Some cookies are deleted when you close down your browser. These are known as session cookies. Others remain on your device until they expire or you delete them from your cache. These are known as persistent cookies and enable us to remember things about you as a returning visitor.

The cookies we use allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. Our cookies also enable us to tailor the content you view according to preferences you set.

We use Session Cookies for the following purposes:

  • To allow you to carry information across pages of the Site and avoid having to re-enter information.
  • Within registration to allow you to access stored information.
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use the Site and to help us improve the structure of the Site.

We use Persistent Cookies for the following purposes:

  • To help us recognise you as a unique visitor (just a number) when you return to the Site and to allow us to tailor content to match your preferred interests.
  • To compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use the Site and to help us improve the structure of the Site.
  • To internally identify you by account name, email address, customer ID, and location (geographic and computer ID/IP address).
  • To tailor content to your preferences.
  • To improve advertising and/or for remarketing purposes.

Third parties serve cookies via the Site. These Third Party Cookies are used for the following purposes:

  • To control how often you are shown particular content.
  • To count the number of anonymous users of the Site. For website usage analysis.
  • To facilitate internet-based advertising and/or remarketing (for example, where third party vendors, including Google serve ads based on your past visits to the Site via the DoubleClick cookie).

The DoubleClick cookie does not collect or stores personally identifiable information however it may contain a unique identifier which is placed on the browser. You can opt out of this cookie here: http://google.com/settings/ads/onweb/optout?hl=en

Use of Information

We may disclose your personally identifiable information where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.

Access and Correction

To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as about any incorrect information. We will update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via the Site.

Security

We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to the Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on the Site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
