I am committed to safeguarding your privacy online. I use the information I collect about you to help me understand more about how my site is used and to be able to send you communications about Top-Ten-Glasgow-Guide.com and Glasgow that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise. The 'personal information' is information that enables me to identify you, such as your email address, name, and title. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.
What personal information do I collect?
I collect the following information regarding visitors to my website: information regarding what pages are accessed and when, information volunteered by you (such as survey information), email address and your preferred means of communication.
I use forms instead of the regular e-mail links on my site in order to protect me from SPAM and other online threats. When you send me a message on the form I track the IP address. Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access my site through an always-on type of Internet connection or through a dial-up connection. Your IP address does not reveal or collect personal information, and it is not my intent to know or use this. All of this information is used only in the aggregate, in other words it is entered into my database, where I use it to generate overall reports on my visitors, but not individual reports. This information is also collected for quality assurance to my advertisers.
Who is collecting your information?
When you are in my website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with me alone unless stated otherwise.
With whom do you share your information?
As a general rule, I will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when I have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when I believe in good faith that the law requires it. I may take individual identifying information available from affiliated third parties, but only where this has been authorised by the individual persons whose information is being transferred. I do not sell on lists to others. From time to time, I may agree with other likeminded organisations to write to some of each other's supporters for the mutual benefit of both.
What are my choices regarding collection, use and distribution of my information?
If you indicated that you are interested in receiving regular information about my work on Top-Ten-Glasgow-Guide.com I will send you communications regarding such work and activities, either electronically or otherwise. In addition, I may send you direct mail that I feel may be of interest to you. I do not sell or rent user information to anyone.
What is your policy on allowing me to update, correct or delete my personally identifiable information?
The accuracy of your individual identifying information is important to me. If you change email address or if any of the other information I hold is inaccurate or out of date, please e-mail me. You are entitled to unsubscribe from any lists I maintain containing your details, and I will honour such a request from you.
What are cookies & do you use them on this site?
And what about Google Cookies?
Talking about Google, what about those search boxes on the site?
How do you protect my personal identifiable information?
I am committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to me and am subject to the UK Data Protection legislation as well as that relating to freedom of information.
What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of my information?
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while I strive to protect your personal information, I cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to me, and you do so at your own risk. Once I receive your transmission, I make my best effort to ensure its security on my system.
The W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) has issued various guidelines on the user accessibility of websites online. I have attempted to ensure that my site complies with many of the guidelines, by providing amongst many things much in the way of text equivalent content and clear navigation, by refraining from the use of unnecessary 'technological wizardry' to stylise the site, and by using 'alt' tags for my images.
However, I have not provided a fully text-only version of my site, and you may very well find other aspects of my site which you believe do not comply with the W3C Guidelines.
If that is the case, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will attempt to provide you with a means by which you may easily access any parts of the site you wish.
The legal content on this page will be governed by and construed in accordance with Scots Law and you will submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Scotland.
Thank you for reading this page - your personal information and use of my website is extremely important to me, and if you have any queries or concerns whatsoever in relation to anything said here, please do not hesitate to contact me.
