This policy covers the Webnetics UK use of personal information that Webnetics UK collects when you use vwdesigns.co.uk, yourlocalpages.biz and virtuallinks.co.uk. The policy also gives you information about cookies.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our support pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight support information on your second and subsequent visits.
VrStats.com (VrStats.com is part of Webnetics UK Ltd.), gather non-personal information regarding the visitors to our website on our behalf using cookies, log file data and code which is embedded on our website. Virtual Web Designs uses this type of information, to help us improve the services we offer you.
What is a cookie
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the bbc.co.uk features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse vwdesigns.co.uk anonymously until such time as you wish to register vwdesigns.co.uk services. For further information on cookies please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org.
Use and storage of your personal information
When you supply any personal information to Virtual Web Designs (e.g. hosting, domain name registration, enquires) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to Virtual Web Designs will only be used within the Webnetics UK. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to vwdesigns.co.uk or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on vwdesigns.co.uk, Virtual Web Designs can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of vwdesigns.co.uk membership you no longer wish to continue your registration as a vwdesigns.co.uk customer. For safety reasons, however, the BBC may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of vwdesigns.co.uk services such as for a period of six months. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other vwdesigns.co.uk services, that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you are notified on a vwdesigns.co.uk site that your information may be used to allow Webnetics UK to contact you for "service administration purposes", this means that Virtual Web Designs may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance. We will not contact you for promotional purposes, such as notifying you of improvements to the service or new services on vwdesigns.co.uk unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information.
Access to your personal information
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information Virtual Web Designs holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests.)
