Positive Practice Partnership Ltd seeks to protect the personal data of users of this website. This privacy statement is based on the principle that you as a user should have the best possible control over your privacy online

Processing your personal data

You can visit this website without informing us of your name and without having to release personal information

Privacy and data protection

PPP aims to safeguard our website users’ privacy and protect personal data against unauthorised use. Collecting personal information is necessary for us to provide an interactive service.

No method of transmission over the internet, or through the use of electronic data storage, is absolutely secure. We strive to use acceptable means to safeguard your personal information, but we cannot guarantee its total security.

IP addresses and cookies

We collect two kinds of information about clients. Our web server automatically collects IP addresses, which identify the location of a computer on the internet, in addition to pages that clients access and files they download. It is not possible to identify someone personally via the IP address.

Personal data relating to you will be used and recorded by PPP in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

We also generate cookies, compact pieces of information generated and accessed by our systems and then sent from our website and stored on your computer.

Most browsers accept cookies, but if you prefer not to accept a cookie it is possible to alter your browser settings to prevent acceptance of cookies.

You should read the information that came with your browser to see how you can configure it to notify you when you receive a cookie; this should then give you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it.

However, you may not be able to take full advantage of our website if you do so. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means they cannot be used to track your web browsing history.

If you prefer not to accept a cookie, you can still navigate the PPP site like any user. Any information gathered by the use of cookies is compiled on an aggregate, anonymous basis.

We use IP addresses and cookies to analyse trends, manage this website, monitor its use and collect general demographic data.

Further information about cookies can be found at the Interactive Advertising Bureau's website: www.allaboutcookies.org

Should you decide to send a DSR (digital sound recording) to PPP by means of a website upload or from an email, our secure facility will protect your data.

Security

PPP places great emphasis on the security of all personally identifiable information of our clients. We employ security methods to attempt to protect against loss, misuse and alteration of personal data under our control.

Our security and privacy policies are regularly reviewed and enhanced where needed using only authorised personnel.

We use secure server software (SSL) to encrypt financial information input before it is sent to us, and our database is hosted in a secure data environment. Whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur, we strive to prevent this.
