UK Data Protection Act 1998
UK Data Protection Act 1998: The Data Protection Act 1998 establishes rights for individuals who disclose their personal information - where personal information is widely defined - to any organisation for any purposes involving processing of that information. Any organisation which processes information about living individuals is a data controller for the purposes of the Act; that is a person who determines the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal data are, or are to be, processed. A data controller is required by the Act to ensure that the data subject has, is provided with, or has made readily available to him certain specified information, including the data controller's identity, the identity of any other person to whom he may disclose the information, and the purpose or purposes for which the data are intended to be processed.
The data controller in relation to this web site is the CodeFutures. The purposes for which the data are intended to be processed are as follows:
Comments, questions and feedback: If you send an enquiry by e-mail to either a specific contact or a general enquiry address identified on the CodeFutures web site, CodeFutures will only use your personal details obtained from your enquiry to respond to your query or improve the site. In some instances, it may not be possible for the CodeFutures to provide the information requested directly.
E-mail alert services sign up: If you sign up to receive e-mail alerts, such as CodeFutures’ press notice alert system, we will use the information you give us to provide the service(s) you have requested. We may occasionally contact e-mail alert subscribers to help us evaluate and improve the service that we offer. We will hold the information you have provided for as long as you require access to the service requested. If you inform us that you wish to cancel a subscription, we will remove you from CodeFutures’ mailing list and your details will be deleted from CodeFutures’ records.
Site usage information: Log files allow us to record visitors' use of the site. CodeFutures puts together log file information from all CodeFutures’ Site visitors, which we use solely to make improvements to the layout of the site and to the information on it, based on the way that visitors navigate around it. Log files are records of the visits made to the site from e-mail addresses and thus effectively contain personal information about you, areas in which you have expressed an interest, and so on. We do not make any other use of this personal information, nor do we pass it on to any other organisation.
Your Rights as a Data Subject: As a data subject, you have various rights under the Act, including a right of access to any personal data being held about you by CodeFutures as data controller. CodeFutures will supply you with details of personal data we are holding about you if you submit a request ("subject access request") to the support@CodeFutures.com e-mail account.
