10. What are Cookies and do We use them?

As part of a change in the law in May 2011 websites now have to make all users aware of what cookies they use and give users the ability to opt in/out.

AltonHampshire.co.uk uses a limited amount of cookies to help improve your experience of the site. Almost all websites will use cookies which in simple terms are a very small text file that is stored on your computer so that when you access the website it will remember you and any settings you might have stored previously.

This website uses the following types of cookies:

Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of a website. They include, for example, cookies that enable users to log into secure areas of a website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.

Analytical/performance cookies. These types of cookies allow providers to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around their website when they are using it. This assists providers in improving the way their website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise users when they return to a website. They enable the personalisation of content, the recognition of users and remember user preferences (for example, their choice of language or region).

Targeting cookies. These cookies record a user's visit to a website, the individual pages visited and the links followed. If the cookie is set by a third party (for example, an advertising network) which also monitors traffic on other websites, this type of cookies may also be used to track a user's movements across different website and to create profiles of their general online behaviour. Information collected by tracking cookies is commonly used to serve users with targeted online advertising.]

IMPORTANT NOTE: cookies CANNOT access information stored elsewhere on your computer or cause any harm. They are not programs or software and are simply a plain text file. They also cannot be accessed by any other website other than the one that created it.

You may delete and block all cookies from this site using the preferences of your browser if you so wish, but be aware parts of the site will no longer work if you do this.

[Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

If you would like more information about cookies and how to manage and delete them you can visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org

The types and function of the cookies we use are detailed below:

Google Analytics
Industry standard analytics that gives Us statistics on how much traffic Our website is getting.

11. Monitoring

For security purposes, We may monitor or record telephone calls for security purposes and to improve the quality of services that We provide to You.

12. Third party links

In order to provide You with increased value, We may include links to third party Websites on AltonHampshire.co.uk. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content or activities of these linked sites. However, We do seek to protect the integrity of Our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work) in writing via the contact details given in above.

13. Modifying Information

You may notify Us of any updates, amendments or corrections to previously collected Personal Information in writing via the contact details given above. Please include Your name, address and/or email address when You contact Us as this helps Us to ensure that We accept amendments only from the correct person. We encourage You to promptly update Your Personal Information if it changes.

Upon Your request, We will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete Your Personal Information from Our database. However, it may not be possible to delete an entry without some delay and without retaining some residual Personal Information which We may need to keep for legal and tax purposes, for ensuring that We suppress You from any further communication or residual Personal Information which may remain in backups and records of deletions.

14. Your rights to access Your Personal Information

You have the right to contact Us in order to find out what Personal Information We hold about You. Please note that a small fee will be payable towards the cost of administering any request You make. The current fee is £10 and we may ask You for proof of Your identity before providing You with the information You request.

15. Changes to Policy

In order to comply with the law and to meet Our changing business requirements, Our policies and procedures are constantly under review. In order to maintain high standards, from time to time, We may modify, alter or update this Policy. Any changes shall be notified to all users via AltonHampshire.co.uk. We therefore recommend that You check AltonHampshire.co.uk periodically in order to review Our current policies.

Policy changes will apply only to Personal Information collected after the date of the change. However, by continuing to use AltonHampshire.co.uk or by buying any products/services from Us, You are agreeing to be bound by the terms of these updates and amendments.

16. Social Media

Social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, among others, work with Us as trusted third party partners. We also work with application developers who specialise in social media, so that We can connect with your social networks.

Promotions may include competitions which require you to give your email address or mobile phone number so that we can contact you again if we have special messages or competitions that you might want to take part in - please note that you may always unsubscribe from any messages that we send you.

We provide access to our Websites for third parties and business partners so that we can generate interest in our products and services among members of your social networks and to allow you to share product and service interests with friends in your network.

We do not control how your personal information is collected, stored or used by such third party sites or to whom it is disclosed. You should review the privacy policies and settings on any social networking site that you subscribe to so that you understand the information they may be sharing.

If you do not want your networking sites to share information about you, you must contact that site and determine whether it gives you the opportunity to opt-out of sharing such information. AltonHampshire.co.uk is not responsible for how these third party sites may use information they collect from or about you.
