Personal Information is individually identifiable information that is collected online, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact that individual. Also other types of information (eg: hobbies, interests, and information collected through cookies or other tracking mechanisms) when they are tied to individually identifiable information.
Who is doing the collecting? I, Sylvia Joyce, am the sole person who operates this site and sees any email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Email sent to me is received at my residence on my desktop PC which operates behind a firewall and runs correctly-installed and up-to-date antivirus and anti-spyware programs. My email provider is Virgin Media who are required by law to collect certain telecommunications data and to store these data for a period of two years.
How may data be used? If you send me an email, I may use your email address to write you back. How I use any other data contained in such emails depends upon the content of each individual email, but I won't keep or use any data (including your email address) beyond writing you back unless I have your express or implicit permission to do so.
To whom may data be disclosed? I will comply if I am legally compelled to disclose data to an authorised agency, but I will not disclose any data (including your email address) to anyone else unless you specifically request or permit me to do so. Virgin Media will make data held by them available to specific authorised agencies if required by law to do so.
I personally pledge always to treat all individuals with honesty, fairness, and respect, regardless of ethnic or national identity, religious or polititical affiliation, age, abilities, opinions, or gender.
I personally pledge never to encourage or to make use of unsolicited bulk email (spam) or any other form of junk mail. Any and all spam and other junk mail received by me will always be instantly deleted without acknowledgement and without forwarding to any other individual.
