Because the world is now like this...
We collect certain basic information about you when you visit our website. We recognise the importance both of keeping that information secure and of letting you know what we intend to do with it.
We may amend our policy to reflect changes to our business, website or to data protection law or legislation. We therefore ask you revisit this policy on a regular basis to ensure you are familiar with its terms.
This policy only applies to our website; if you follow a link out of our website or leave our website in some other way, this policy will no longer apply.
The policy sets out (1) who we are and describes (2) the information we collect, (3) what we do with it and (4) how you can find out more.
(1) Who we are
This website is provided by Competition Academic Limited. More information about us may be found by emailing us at email@example.com. Our office is located at Unit 905, 9/F Kowloon Centre, 33 Ashley Road, Tsimshatsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
(2) The information we collect
We collect information from you when you complete online forms, by means of 'cookies' when you use our site and in the form of 'traffic data'. In general, we will collect the information we need to provide you with the service to which the form relates. For example, if you use our enquiry form we will collect your names, email address and the message you write. We use this information to process your enquiry more effectively. Where we ask for more information to help us improve our services, over and above the basic required information, your response is voluntary, and you are free not to provide us with more information if you would prefer not to do so.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer's hard drive by websites you visit yo enable the site to 'remember' who you are. In general, cookies are only visible to the website that serves them, not to other websites; 'serves' means places on your computer's hard drive.
We use the cookies on this website to help you navigate our website efficiently, perform certain functions and to collect site statistics. These cookies do not store any personal information that would, on its own, allow us to identify individual users of this service without your permission.
We use a number of suppliers (third party) who also set cookies on this website on our behalf in order to deliver the services that they are providing. If you would like more information about the cookies used by these suppliers, as well as information on how to opt-out, please see the information in the tables provided below.
Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact on the functionality of the Competition Academic Limited website and could mean that key features do not work properly. We strongly recommend allowing cookies from this website so that we can provide you with a full service. To help you make an informed decision, we have categorised the cookies used on this site into two categories:
Necessary cookies are fundamentally to ensure the website works correctly. The ones we use on this website are:
|Competition Academic Limited||ASP.NET_SessionId||End of session||To store anonymous details about the pages visited by you on this website and is required to provide this functionality to you. If you do not allow this cookie, the website will not work correctly.|
|Competition Academic Limited||AcceptCookies||Never||Tells us that you have accepted cookies from this website and allows us to stop showing you the same message each time you visit.|
Optional cookies help us to track how you use the website so that we can improve the information and experience provided to you. They may also provide additional features by third party providers to allow you to socially share content or comment on this website. The ones we use on this website are:
We do not use 'spyware', that is web bugs or hidden identifiers or other similar devices to gain access to information, store hidden information or to trace your activities.
We keep a record of traffic data which is logged automatically by the server. This includes your IP address, the website address you visited before ours, the website address you visit after leaving our website and which pages you visit on our website. We do not store or analyse this traffic data in a way that identifies any individual. We also use Google Analytics for site statistics - see above for how this works.
(3) What we do with your information
We use your information to provide you with relevant support, information or other content and services that you request. If any of our communications constitute direct marketing we will separately seek your consent where required by law. We will keep you on our mailing lists until you ask us not to contact you further. See section (4) to find out how to opt-out of mailings from us.
We may disclose your information to third parties in certain circumstances. Suppliers who process information on our behalf, such as our IT service providers, will have incidental access to your information but will be obliged to act only on our instructions and to keep your information secure. We may disclose your information to law enforcement or regulatory bodies if required to do so by them. We may also disclose your information to a third party in the context of actual or threatened legal proceedings or if otherwise required to do so by law. Your information will not be disclosed to or shared with any third party except as specified above.
Only authorised personnel and contractors have access to your information. We will keep your information secure by taking appropriate technical and organisational measures against its unauthorised or unlawful processing and against its accidental loss, destruction or damage.
Data protection legislation is harmonised throughout the European Economic Area (EEA), which comprises the EU member states, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Countries outside the EEA do not generally have the same level of protection for personal information as those within the EEA. Because of the way the internet works, it is possible that the information the provide us could be routed via countries outside the EEA. However, this is not considered a 'transfer' under data protection legislation, and unless you are from outside the EEA, we will not transfer any information we collect from you outside the EEA without your permission or as permitted by law.
(4) Finding out more
You can ask us to stop sending you material at any time by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify what you wish us to do clearly.
