Data Protection and Confidentiality
When you supply any personal information to Simon & Co, we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it. All information you provide to Simon & Co will only be used within Simon & Co and will never be supplied to anyone outside Simon & Co, without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged by law to disclose it.
When you contact us by Email or by completing any of our Online Forms, we will record your information in our Customer Management System (CMS), together with any emails you may send. This information is solely for our own use and will not be divulged to any third parties.
Website Log Files
In common with nearly all Websites, our Servers automatically generate Log files of all requests for files. These Log files do not capture personal information, other than, the user’s IP address, which is automatically recognised by our web servers.
The Log files have various uses, one of which, is to generate aggregated analysis of Website usage. They can, for example, measure overall popularity of the site or particular pages within the website. We do not use the logs in an attempt to identify individual users. Please note, however, access to web pages will, typically, create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These suppliers may be in a position to identify the client computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of Simon & Co.
As already confirmed, we make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to our system is being attempted. In the case of all users, Simon & Co reserves the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of Simon & Co web services.
A condition of using this Website, is all users must give permission for Simon & Co to use its Access Logs when attempting to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining, or attempting to gain, unauthorised access. No access to raw log files is given to any third party, other than, our own Hosting provider, whom may need to analyse the Log files on our behalf, if we suspect any unauthorised access to our systems.
