Privacy Policy

SEND Partnership Service's privacy policy is to respect and protect the privacy of visitors to the website. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it. It will assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our services.

 

We will request personal information such as your name, email address, etc when using the 'Get in Touch' form on the SEND Partnership Service website in order to be able to respond to your enquiry. 

SEND Partnership Service also collects aggregate information from all website visitors. This aggregate data is used to customise SEND Partnership Service web content to deliver a better experience for our users and will in no way personally identify you.

 

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. On occasions, we collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to analyse aggregate information, and to audit the use of our site.

 

Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you're at our site. The use of cookies is an industry standard - you will find them at most major websites.

By showing how and when visitors use our site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed and this information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use cookies to better understand and improve areas of the SEND Partnership Service's website that our users find valuable. While both of these activities depend on the use of a "cookie", visitors to the SEND Partnership Service's website always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences.

To learn more about how we use cookies visit our 'Use of Cookies' page https://www.spsbathnes.org.uk/pages/foot/use-of-cookies

 

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of the SEND Partnership Service's website may not function properly or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.

In addition, we have implemented a Google Advertising feature 'Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting' . This enables Google Analytics to collect data via Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers, in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation. This will help us to better understand our users and help us provide more relevant information to them. We will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google advertising product or feature without prior consent from the site's users. You can opt-out of Google Analytics Advertising Features by using this tool: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. There are also a variety of Ad settings available on computer, tablet and mobile phone settings.

 

We may acquire user information from other sources and add such information to our house files.

 

We will not publish, give, sell or rent your information to anyone, ever. However, we reserve the right to disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) SEND Partnership Service's rights or property, other users, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities. We also reserve the right to disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Information is made available through Local Authority website web pages and in addition GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and other Government licensed websites. Please note that Information available via the internet may be accessed by people in countries and territories outside the European Union (EU) which may operate different levels of data protection than apply in the United Kingdom.

 

You should be aware that when you are on the SEND Partnership Service website, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from SEND Partnership Service's website pages that take you outside our service. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. The privacy policies of these other sites may significantly differ from that of SEND Partnership Service's. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any other sites and cannot guarantee the security of any of your personal information collected there.

 

Protecting the security of all personally-identifiable information associated with our users is of the utmost concern to us. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take all reasonable steps to ensure the security of our users' personal information and maintain their privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of such personal information.

By using this site, you agree to the SEND Partnership Service Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use this site. The terms of this Privacy Policy may change from time to time without prior notice to you, so please check this page periodically for any changes. Your continued use of this site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
