About this Privacy Policy

We want to demonstrate our commitment to our users€™ privacy, we disclose all of the information we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with the information we collect.

Why we store information

The information we collect directly benefits users using our website because we operate a Member Directory and use the data to ensure we provide more relevant and useful information to visitors.

The Member Directory section provides information on companies which have applied to, and been accepted by Regen SW. To provide the service, we hold information about organisations, and the individuals representing those bodies.

Information is collected for the following purposes:

1. Completing an activity or transaction within the Member Directory Section
2. Our own internal website and system administration
3. Research and development
4. Tailoring content according to user requirements and preferences
5. Determine habits and interests of individuals for general statistical analysis
6. Troubleshooting site and service access issues

The following organisations have access to the information we collect

1. Ourselves (Regen SW)
2. Our Internet Service Providers (Web Access Log information)

How long do we store information for?

Normally, as long as the information can be of use to us and other Member Organisations, unless you specifically contact us otherwise.

We retain information for as long as is required for the data’s intended purpose, and normally, due to data archiving and disaster recovery policies, for at least seven years as required to perform full data recovery in the event of a full disaster.

The website servers also collect the following types of information:

The servers housing this web site automatically collect logs that may record statistical information such as visitors’ IP addresses, type of operating systems, time of visit, web pages requested etc, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types.

These usage statistics are used to improve our website and maintain site security. The information in these logs is never used by us in a personally identifiable way, although they may be able to identify or show the individual ISP or company accessing the site. Your ISP or organisation may make such data available that would allow personal identification, but we do not use this data.

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
