1.0 Our core beliefs regarding user privacy and data protection
• User privacy and data protection are human rights
• We have a duty of care to the people we store information about
• Data is a liability, it should only be collected and processed when absolutely necessary
• We will never sell, rent or otherwise distribute or make public your personal or company information
2.0 Relevant legislation
Along with our business and internal computer systems, our website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:
• UK Data Protection Act 1988 (DPA)
• EU Data Protection Directive 1995 (DPD)
• EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)
• Australian Privacy Act 1988 (APA)
Our site’s compliance with the above legislation, all of which are stringent in nature, means that the site is compliant with the data protection and user privacy legislation set out by many other countries and territories.
3.0 Personal information that this website collects
Our website will not collect any individual user information and as such, no individual user information will be obtained, stored or used by Qualogy via access or use of the website.
4.0 Site visitation tracking/ third party data processors
We use 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. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor.
GA have been carefully chosen as they comply with the legislation set out in section 2.0. GA is based in the USA and are EU-U.S Privacy Shield compliant and currently comply with the current GDPR.
Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.
5.0 Contact forms and email links
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page or an email link, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to / be processed by any of the third party data processors defined in section 4.0. Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
