Information that you may input from time to time
The Citizenship Foundation requires that users supply personal information when registering to access particular services. Over a period of time the Citizenship Foundation may collate further personal information from users.
The collection and use of your information will be restricted to the minimum required to continue to deliver, develop and improve services to you. Dependent on the questions asked and the services offered you may, from time to time, receive from us either an email or postal description of products or services. If you choose not to receive these the Citizenship Foundation will only contact you if they feel your access to the service may be affected.
You may also, at any time, ask for your details to be removed from the database simply by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word ‘remove from database’ in the subject area.
Accessibility to the site
Once you have registered, the Citizenship Foundation uses a password driven website.
The Paying for It server logs the IP address which is the location of your computer on the internet. This will not be used to link to anything personally identifiable or to track a user session but may be used to identify general usage of the site. Your computer tells our server which browser you use. By knowing the browser that your computer uses this enables our server to supply the information in the correct format for you to read.
How is this information used?
Upon request, the Citizenship Foundation will remove any details about a user or subscriber from Paying for It database.
Whenever we sub-contract other organisations to provide support services, we require them to conform to our privacy standards and to allow us to audit them for compliance.
Further information that you post through blogs is visible to the public. If you disclose personal information publicly, including your email address, it can be collected and used by others which may result in unsolicited messages from other parties. The Citizenship Foundation cannot guarantee the security of your information, although all reasonable measures will be taken to stop this falling into the wrong hands. The user or subscriber is responsible for the secrecy of your password(s) and/or any account information.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device (for example your computer or phone) by websites that you visit. They are used extensively in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
On 26 May 2011 the law on cookies changed. UK websites must now get a user’s explicit permission before setting cookies on their computer. We have a few months to implement this and currently are working on it.
We use Google Analytics and Google AdWords to get information about how you use the webiste. This information is stored in cookies. The cookies send that information (including your IP address) to Google, who stores it on servers in the United States.
Google uses that information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also send this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
By accepting cookies from this website, you consent to Google processing data about your activity in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
