Privacy Policy Statement

This is the web site of Scottish Law Online.

Based in: UK

I can be reached via e-mail by filling in the Feedback Form on this site.

For each visitor to any of the Websites, the Web server automatically recognises Internet statistics - Your IP Address, Referrers, Browser, Computer Settings and other similar information. This information is not available to others. It cannot provide information about your e-mail address, name or other sensitive information..

I can access Internet Statistics and information volunteered on the sites.

The information I collect is not kept for longer than the purpose for which it is required and is not shared with anyone at all.

With respect to cookies: I do not set any cookies in the main site. Cookies may be set in the Discussion Forum - these are for your password and your username. These are set so that users do not have to constantly enter login information as they browse the boards. The advertisers in the Shopping Zone also appear to set cookies as too do the advertisers on other areas of the site. I am told that these cookies expire after a period of time and are designed to credit this site with referrals during the period for which they are active. I have no control over these cookies nor can I access any of the information which results from them.

I use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit this website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and would like to know your options in relation to·not having this information used by these companies, click here.

With respect to the Discussion Forums: The discussion forums allow users to post messages anonymously provided they choose to hide their e-mail address from the public when registering. Occasional e-mails regarding the site and the discussion forums will be sent to members. E-mail addresses provided when registering are not shared with any company, organisation or individual.

From time to time, I may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this privacy notice. If the information practices change at some time in the future I will use for these new purposes only data collected from the time of the policy change forward .

Users may prevent their information from being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected by contacting me and I will be happy to comply.

Upon request I can provide site visitors with access to all information that I maintain about them. (Which isn't very much if anything at all!)

Users can have this information corrected by contacting me through the Discussion Forum.

With respect to security: It is felt that security measures are unnecessary for the information which is dealt with.

Please remember though that I loathe and detest junk mail, hate unsolicited e-mails with a passion and have no intention of upsetting anyone with any e-mails which I may send. If I have offended you then I am very sorry. Simply contact me and I will try to avoid a reoccurrence of the incident.
