Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission to do so.
LEAP will maintain the confidentiality of personal data held or processed and increase the access given to individuals to information relating to them.
The term LEAP includes HATS. If you have submitted your email address to the site, we may in future communicate with you to give you the opportunity to opt in to further email communications from us. These further communications may be sent from time to time to inform you about our activities and services.
What information we collect
We collect data from our website for a number of reasons, primarily to provide you with the most useful and relevant information and services from LEAP and HATS. We do this through collecting and analysing both anonymous, or aggregate, data, and personal data volunteered by you online.
In some areas of our website, for example log in details and contact forms, we collect personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and email. We may use this personally identifiable information to customise the content on the websites and to such visitors’ current and future needs and to process any requests, applications or transactions undertaken by you and for internal administration and analysis. We use this information only for the reason you have supplied it or any other reason for which you have given us permission to do so. LEAP does not sell, rent, or disclose any information to third parties for their marketing purposes.
Where relevant, information is provided to explain why the data is being collected and how it will be used. In some cases we may ask you to ‘opt-in’ to receive future communications including email, or text marketing. In other cases, when we ask you for information about yourself you may, by ticking the appropriate box provided, tell us that you do not want future communications from us (it’s alright, we won’t get offended).
If you enter sensitive personal data, including but not limited to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or spiritual beliefs or your physical or mental health or condition, you hereby consent to the use of such data.
In addition to information given explicitly by you, we also collect information about your visit to our website (for example, the date and time of your visit and the pages that you view). This information is not connected to you personally, and is in aggregate form. This kind of data helps us to understand how our visitors use our site so that future website development can better meet your needs.
