Last Update : 8th August 2007

This policy explains the types of information we collect about users of The School of Health & Social Care (HSC) HSC 4U website.

This information is used to improve the content of our web pages, to customize the content and/or layout of our pages for each individual visitor and upon request to notify visitors about updates to our web site. We never sell, rent or share any of the information we collect with any third party.

This policy applies only to the areas of HSC 4U maintained by The HSC Web Team (a service of HSC). Other schools and departments may have different privacy policies and data protocols.

Information we collect as you browse our web site
Our webserver automatically collects standard information, including your current IP address, browser type, operating system and access times.

We may use your university userid to customize web page content (for example, to access specific placement information) or to provide statistical information on the particular systems accessed (for example, how many Midwifery students have accessed the placement system since the start of term).

Use of optional information provided by visitors
You may be asked to provide your name, e-mail address or other personal information on various pages on our site (for example, when sending feedback).

We will only use your name and address details to respond to your enquiry. We will not use it for any other purpose; it is never sold, rented or shared with any third party.

You may use our facility to e-mail content to yourself or others. Any information you supply for this is used only to deliver a message in real-time to the e-mail address(es) you specify. We do not keep this information, nor do we share it in any way.

You may use our Placement subscription facility to receive regular e-mail updates from the Placement team. Any information you supply for this is used only to deliver messages based on the subjects you choose to the e-mail address you specify. We do not share this information in any way. Details of how to stop receiving updates are sent to the e-mail address you specify at the time of subscribing.

If you contact us by e-mail to request information, report a problem or provide feedback on our services we will only use the information you provide (including your e-mail address) to respond to your message. We do not keep this information, nor do we share it in any way.

Future development
From time to time, we may use your information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy policy. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes on this page.

If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check this page periodically. We will only use data collected from the time of the policy change onwards for these new purposes.

We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information we have collected from you. These security measures include the necessary protection to prevent, as far as possible, access to our databases by parties other than The School of Health & Social Care, Bournemouth University.
