Our liability is limited and excluded to the maximum extent permitted under applicable law, arising under these terms and conditions, or in connection with the Programme, whether arising in tort, contract, or otherwise including, without limitation, any loss of profit, contracts, business, goodwill, data, income, revenue or anticipated savings.

Any material you publish or send via our website must not be defamatory, obscene, indecent, hateful, discriminatory or inflammatory.

These terms and conditions, together with our privacy policy, constitute our agreement in relation to your use of the Programme, and supersede all previous agreements.

This notice will be governed by and construed in accordance with UK law. Any disputes relating to this notice are subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of the UK.

Unless otherwise stated, we own the intellectual property rights of the Programme and material on the website. All our intellectual property rights are reserved.


Privacy policy.

We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our users; this policy describes how we treat your personal information.

What information do we collect?

We collect, store and use general information about visits to, and use of, the Programme. This data can include information relating to users IP address, software type, referral source, length of visit and number of pages viewed. The type and nature of data collected is similar to the usage logs maintained by most web servers. This data is collected automatically by the server from which the Programme is provided. The server logs contain details of user activity on the website. There is no record of users actual identity in the logs. The information that we collect is aggregated and used to identify patterns of use, not to monitor the activity of individuals.

The computer from which the Programme is provided is maintained in a secure data centre. The server contains no sensitive information relating to user’s health status.

Usernames and passwords.

All users of the Programme are prompted to enter a password to access their workbooks. Please take whatever steps you consider necessary to protect the security of your workbooks. Neither the website nor the workbooks transmit any personal information over the internet.

If you are concerned about your privacy, or if you share a computer with others, you can clear your browsers cache when you have finished. Use your browsers “help” files to find out how to do this.


How we use information.

We may use aggregated information in the administration of this website, to improve the Programme’s ease of use, and for evaluation purposes.  Data is not used to attempt to identify or to contact any individual user.

Your use of the Programme implies consent that grouped summaries of outcome data may be published or presented, for example, in scientific papers, articles or books in any form – written, electronic or audio, or at conferences. No data which could be used to identify any individual user whatsoever will be published.

In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this privacy policy, we will never use your personal information to:

  • Send “spam” to you or anyone else by phone, post or by e-mail.
  • Provide other companies with any information about you.

Security of your personal data.

We take all reasonable precautions to prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information, for example all connections to our website are SSL encrypted. However, as recent privacy revelations have highlighted, no-one can guarantee the absolute security of the internet. It is for this reason that the Programme neither asks for, stores, nor transmits, any sensitive personal information.

The written records of your progress through the Programme remain entirely in your possession. Please take whatever steps necessary to protect your privacy, with regard to your workbooks.

We encourage all users to encrypt their e-mail correspondence to further enhance security. We are happy to communicate using encrypted means such as Protonmail or Signal messenger.


Cookies and local storage.

The Programme uses cookies and local storage. Both are small files that may be stored on your hard drive. They are created automatically by the Programme. A cookie can be thought of as a “passport” which tells the website when you have returned. The Programme uses cookies to streamline your experience, and to provide summary reports via Google Analytics. We don’t use cookies or local storage to serve advertisements, or for any marketing or social networking related purposes. Neither cookies nor local storage are used to store your name or personal information.

Cookies are also used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use this information to help improve our service. Cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visits to the site, where visitors have come from, and the pages they have visited.

Cookies can’t spread viruses. You can set limits to the number and type of cookies saved on your computer. Although cookies are stored on your computer, they can’t access your hard drive. A cookie can’t read other information saved on your computer, and can’t access your e-mail, or any other personal details.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. Doing so may, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one. You can delete cookies by following the instructions in the “help” menu of your browser.

To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set, and how to manage and delete them, visit the HTTP Cookies Page.

To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites, search for “Google analytics opt-out.” A number of browser plugins are available to block search engine tracking.


Other disclosures.

In addition to the disclosures necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this policy, we may, in extraordinary circumstances, disclose information about you without your consent:

  • To the extent that we are required to do so by law.
  • In connection with any legal proceedings.
  • In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.
  • To protect the safety of our users, website, or the public.

Third party web sites.

We are not responsible for the content of external websites. We encourage you to review the privacy statements of other sites, so you can understand how they collect, use, and share information.

Amendments.

We may update this policy from time-to-time, by posting a new version on the website. Check this page regularly to ensure you are happy with any changes.
