This policy covers Geo's use of information that we collect when you use www.geolanguages.co.uk. Not that we are really expecting anyone to read it.

We are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of anyone using our site and the confidentiality of any information that you provide.

Data Protection Act 1998 (‘the Act’)

We are registered under the Data Protection Act and comply with the Act in all our dealings with your personal data.

Use and collection of personal information

In general you can visit our website without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. In fact sometimes we would prefer it if you stopped revealing things about yourself. That said, if you request a quote from us using the online tools you will be asked to provide certain information such as your contact details. We will store this data and hold it on computer or otherwise.

We may use information that you provide:

  • To record on our database for quoting and general customer contact.
  • To record as a supplier to contact you for potential work. Your CV may also be sent to our clients for approval but will have all contact details and identifying details removed.
  • For assessment and analysis, e.g. marketing, the occasional email if anything exciting is happening, customer and product analysis, etc.

If you do not want us to use data in this way please contact us at help@geolanguages.co.uk to request removal.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • In the event we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we might disclose your personal data to the prospective buyer or seller.
  • If we are under a legal duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with or meet any legal obligation.
Cookies

We collect information directly from you in a number of ways. One way is through the use of ‘cookies’. Like most websites, we use cookies in order to make the website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website (that’s us). They help us to understand how our customers and potential customers use our website so we can develop and improve the design, layout, content and function of the site. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer’s hard drive by websites that you visit. They save and retrieve pieces of information about your visit to the website – for example, how you entered the site, how you navigated through the site and what information and documentation was of interest to you. This means that when you go back to a website, it can give you tailored options based on the information it has stored about you on your last visit.

Some of our cookies are used to simply collect information about how visitors use our website and these types of cookies collect the information in an anonymous form.

Where there is a login process relating to our services we also use cookies to store personal registration information so that you do not necessarily have to provide it to us again on subsequent visits.

If you are uncomfortable with the use of cookies, you can disable cookies on your computer by changing the settings in the preferences or options menu in your browser. You can set your browser to reject or block cookies or to tell you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer. You can also delete any cookies that are already stored on your computer’s hard drive.  However, please be aware that if you do delete and block all cookies from our website, parts of the site may subsequently not work. This is because some of the cookies we use are essential for parts of our website to operate. Likewise, you may not be able to use some products and services on other websites without cookies.

Security

We endeavour to take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information but there are bad people out there who do things we can’t control. As such, we cannot guarantee the security of any data that you disclose online and we will not be responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to our negligence or wilful default.

Your rights

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. Our phone number is +44 (0) 1483 577 750 , or you can e-mail us on help@geolanguages.co.uk.
