Confidentiality / Security


Some of the services on our website do give visitors the option of using a secure transmission method to send us their personal data. Where this is the case you will see a gold padlock symbol at the foot of the page on the right hand side. A message may also appear stating that you are viewing information over a secure connection.


Where this is not the case, your attention is drawn to the fact that any information provided over the Internet is not secure; e-mails can be intercepted, lost, redirected, changed and read by other people.


We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from:


  • Unauthorised access
  • Improper use or disclosure
  • Unauthorised modification
  • Unlawful destruction or accidental loss


It is important for you to note that Email presents opportunities for potential breaches of security and data integrity. As a result of this, and in order to protect personal data, the Partnership has installed a number of protection facilities:


  • All incoming and outgoing Email is electronically content checked to isolate “non savoury” or inappropriate material.
  • Virus checks are carried out on all emails.


All incoming and outgoing email is checked against a variety of categories that include:


  • Containing a virus
  • Containing an Executable file (.exe)
  • Lack of authorisation for Email
  • Containing Profanity
  • Undeterminable address
  • SPAM (junk mail)
  • SCAM (unsolicited such as chain letters)
  • Encrypted Email
  • Emails and email attachments may also be automatically scanned and checked for inappropriate image content.


Internal procedures have been developed for managing Email trapped under each of the categories shown above.


All our employees and data processors, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors' personal data.


We ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed except if required by law, other regulations or you have provided the Partnership with explicit consent.
