Privacy & Cookies
We will never disclose your details to any 3rd party. Your contact information is kept strictly within our group. We do not under any circumstances whatsoever share our data (including mailing lists) with anyone else. The only limitation on this absolute guarantee is that we must release information when required to do so by reason of a Court Order or other lawful authority.
Visitors to these sites are tracked and we have a record of the server from which you came, the type of browser and operating system you use. The information we have does not enable us to identify any individual visitor EXCEPT that certain services require registration in which case we do know who you are and certain services require cookies that detail your visits to those services. Advertisers including but not limited to Google may place a cookie on your computer for the purposes of recording your visits. There are several reasons for this including recording commissions due to us for referrals from our sites.
We access and use information internationally. All data is accessible to our staff from anywhere in the world. We may download that data onto other computers and work on it remotely. Further, our data is archived in the EU and in the USA. Some information is archived in other jurisdictions, for example Hong Kong and Malaysia.
Group Policy re Cookies.
We do not use cookie data for marketing or any other purpose. You may, after leaving our site, delete any cookies it has placed on your computer without any adverse effect. See your browser's Help file for details of how to do this.
You may block cookies from any of our sites (except e-learning and PleaseBeInformed.com: see below) with no adverse effect.
We place cookies on your computer, phone or other device to facilitate your user experience.
For non-registered users the cookies record your last visit but do not identify you or your network.
For registered users, cookies record your visits to enable us to identify how members use our sites. The site visits are recorded in our database. Because you have registered, it is possible to cross-refer cookie data to the database. However, the most common use for cookies is for you to access the site without having to log in each time you visit.
We do record (independently of cookies) the IP addresses of visitors in order to aid in our security processes and we are able to manually cross-reference those to records of page visits to enable us to block IP addresses of malicious visitors.
We do not use tracking or persistent cookies.
Special conditions re Quick To Learn More AML/CFT e-learning system
Cookies are used in conjunction with your login data to record your progress and to return you to the last viewed page. The cookies are a back-up because the same data is recorded in your training record. In this way, cookie data can be cross-referenced to you for administration purposes in your training course. You can delete cookie data from your computer or other device after logging out and our system will still remember the last training page you visited. However, you will need to have cookies active during each training session or the system will not know which page to serve next.
Special conditions re PleaseBeInformed.com suite of publications
Cookies are used to record your login and your credentials to ensure that you have access to those parts of the site to which you have subscribed. We are able to identify the pages you visit with reference to your membership ID. You may safely delete cookies on exit. However, if you deny cookies while you are accessing the site, the system will lose track of you and your identity and therefore block access even to those sections to which you are subscribed.
