Privacy Policy

Berkeley Squares operates this site (www.berkeleysquares.co.uk). By using this site, you agree to our Privacy Policy which is outlined below.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Berkeley Squares collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Berkeley Squares’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Berkeley Squares’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Berkeley Squares may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Berkeley Squares also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Berkeley Squares only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Berkeley Squares’s websites choose to interact with Berkeley Squares in ways that require Berkeley Squares to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Berkeley Squares gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter to provide a name and email address. Berkeley Squares collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Berkeley Squares. Berkeley Squares does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Berkeley Squares may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Berkeley Squares may monitor the most popular articles on the site and the kind of device used to access the site. Berkeley Squares may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Berkeley Squares does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Berkeley Squares discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Berkeley Squares’s behalf or to provide services available at Berkeley Squares’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Berkeley Squares’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Berkeley Squares will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Berkeley Squares discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Berkeley Squares believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Berkeley Squares, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Berkeley Squares website and have supplied your email address, Berkeley Squares may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Berkeley Squares. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Berkeley Squares takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Berkeley Squares uses cookies to help Berkeley Squares identify and track visitors, their usage of Berkeley Squares website, and their website access preferences. Berkeley Squares visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Berkeley Squares’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Berkeley Squares’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Berkeley Squares, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Berkeley Squares goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Berkeley Squares may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Berkeley Squares and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.
