Blue Sheep is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Blue Sheep Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the Blue Sheep website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Blue Sheep collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. Blue Sheep also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postal code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Blue Sheep. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by Blue Sheep for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Blue Sheep Web site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Blue Sheep public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Blue Sheep does not read any of your private online communications.
Blue Sheep encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Blue Sheep so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. Blue Sheep is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Blue Sheep and BlueVenn family of Web sites.
Blue Sheep collects and uses your personal information to operate the Blue Sheep Web site and deliver the services you have requested. Blue Sheep also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Blue Sheep and its affiliates. Blue Sheep may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
Blue Sheep does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Blue Sheep may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Blue Sheep may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Blue Sheep, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Blue Sheep does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
Blue Sheep keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Blue Sheep, in order to determine what Blue Sheep services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within Blue Sheep to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Blue Sheep Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Blue Sheep or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Blue Sheep; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Blue Sheep, or the public.
The Blue Sheep Web site use “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Blue Sheep pages, or register with Blue Sheep site or services, a cookie helps Blue Sheep to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Blue Sheep Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Blue Sheep features that you customised.
Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies by default, but you can change this setting. For instructions on how to find and accept/reject cookies for your browser, please read its help information.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Blue Sheep secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Blue Sheep secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
The Act gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
We aim to keep our information about you as accurate as possible. If you would like to review or change the details you have supplied us with, please contact us as set out below.
