Privacy Statement

Introduction

When you register interest on our website your details will be kept and processed. In confirming your subscription to the mailing list by returning the confirmation email you will be deemed to have consented to your information being processed.

This Privacy Statement explains what data we hold, what we use the data for, who has access to the data and how we will comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.

If you have any further questions when you have read through this statement please do not hesitate to contact us.

Data Controller

The Data Controller, for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, is Quantified Tree Risk Assessment Limited. Our details can be found on our contact page. Our registration number is. Z9002175.

What data are held and why

When you register online, we hold basic levels of data including your name, e-mail address and other contact information.

For people attending workshops we keep the above levels of data and that relating to the licensing agreement and workshop attendance.

We also keep a record of the country in which you are located, your employer's name and the industry sector you work in. Records are kept in the QTRA Directory of Registered Users once you become a registered user and are not made public unless you wish to opt in. To edit your e-mailing preferences or to change your visibility in the directory, log in using your username and password and navigate to ‘edit profile’.

QTRA operates both a public and a user discussion forum. When you post on the public discussion forum, posts are visible to the public and you are consenting to this information being shared across international boundaries on the world wide web. We log your IP and e-mail address, so that we can trace the source of the post, and by posting on the public discussion forum you are agreeing to this. If you send messages to the Registered Users’ Discussion List we keep a record of how many messages you have sent and the total size of the messages. These are required to monitor the performance of our systems and help enhance the service we offer. Copies of the messages will also be retained in the discussion list's archive.

The content of any message you send to the QTRA Registered User’s Discussion List is placed in the list archive and is only available to current registered users. By posting a message to the list you will be deemed to have consented to this message being made available to other registered users and transferred via the Internet to territories outside the European Economic Area.

All posts you send in either the Public or Registered Users Discussion List will be logged in the archive.

How to see your data

When logged in to the QTRA website, you can access and edit the data we hold in the 'Edit Profile' area.   You will need a username and password to log in.

Who else can see your data?

All personal data is stored by QTRA, and only visible to QTRA and website administrators. However, once you become a Registered User, you can login and choose to make your name, contact details and workshop attendance publicly available in the QTRA Directory of Registered Users on the 'Edit Profile' page.

The List Administrator is situated within the EU and bound by the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK or by equivalent legislation in another EU member state. However, your data may be stored on a computer outside of the European Economic Area. Your subscription records will only be made available to others if we are required to do so by law.

The content of any message you send to the QTRA Registered Users' Discussion List is placed in the list archive, which is available on the world wide web only to current registered users. By posting a message to the list you will have consented to this message being made available to other registered users and transferred via the Internet to territories outside the European Economic Area.

The results of statistical analysis of the list membership are also available publicly on the world wide web.

How long we keep your data

Once you have registered your contact details on the QTRA website, we will hold your data and these will not be made public.

QTRA registered user information, including contact details, workshop attendance, invoice and payment details and posts on the discussion forums, will be held. When you cease to be a QTRA registered user (due to cancellation or licence expiration), all details will be held by QTRA only.

Your records will be kept indefinitely, unless you submit a request to us for them to be removed by contacting admin@qtra.co.uk.


How we use cookies

Like most websites, we make use of cookies to make our website work and to help enhance your experience of visiting us. Cookies allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a "memory" for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately. Cookies are essential to make the site work at all. They help our Content Management System (CMS) to work out what content to serve to you, keep track of your preferences, help CAPTCHA images to work and in restricted areas of the site check that you have logged in and are authorised to view the content.

Please be aware that other sites linked to our site, may have different policies regarding the use of cookies.

Other data – logs

In common with other providers of Internet services, we keep logs of all access to our systems. These are used to analyse performance, identify problems and detect any security breach. They generally identify only connecting computers rather than the individuals operating them.

System logs are only accessible to system administrators. They are rotated and are generally not kept for more than a month, unless there is a specific problem which requires further analysis. The results of statistical analysis of logs may be kept indefinitely.

It may occasionally be necessary to pass log extracts to support personnel in order to track down problems. When this is done any data which might identify individuals are anonomised. Support personnel may be outside the European Economic Area.

In the event of attempted or successful security breaches relevant log extracts will be passed to the ISP of the computer concerned and to the authorities. In attempting to circumvent our security you will be deemed to have given your consent to us passing logs relating to this action to third parties that may be outside of the EEA.
