- Security of communications
We recognise that many people are concerned about the privacy and protection of information as it is transmitted over the Internet. You should keep in mind that the possibility exists for unauthorised individuals to intercept any e-mail message you send over the Internet. In some cases, information can be encrypted (scrambled or encoded) to make it very difficult to read if it is intercepted during communication. Certain technology and practices allow websites to provide an increased level of security for your personal information when appropriate. We are not responsible for the privacy of e-mail messages except those stored in our system. We use the following practices on our website to enhance the level of security for communication and the transmission of personal information:
Data Protection Act 1998
- We have taken reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that you may provide.
- We use e-mail forms to allow our customers to ask questions about our services and programmes. The possibility exists that unauthorised individuals may intercept email messages.
- We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 we need your written consent to hold and process information in relation to your application and any subsequent employment for various administrative, academic and health and safety reasons, and by signing or checking the “I have read and understood the Terms & Conditions ” box you give that consent. Without your consent, we regret that we will be unable to continue to process your application. Offensive or inappropriate content on the Institute website
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to grimsby.ac.uk, the Institute may use your personal information to stop such behaviour. Where the Institute reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any of the laws of England or Wales (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), the Institute may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/Internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour. Changes in our privacy statement
This statement and therefore the ways in which your data may be processed can be changed from time to time. Any changes will only be notified via this web page. Disclaimer
