Confidentiality/Privacy

The Aspergillus Website collects some personal information when users register and this information is stored in a secure database.

The e-mail address will be used to send confirmation of your username and password, and will be used to send you emails containing details of our new additions and updates. Details of how to unsubscribe from this service are present in every email.
NOTE: This is an insecure way of sending information so be careful to use non-sensitive details that cannot be misused.

Our update emails are sent out using a dedicated partner service – see their privacy policy at http://www.yourmailinglistprovider.com/privacy_policy.html

You can opt in to your contact data being included in the secure website address book, but that is purely voluntary and is only viewable by registered users.

All of this data is only accessible by website and database managers and will never be used for any other purpose other than that for which it was submitted or sold on to third parties.

Users can securely log in to their personal account page to view what data is held on them, and then have the facility to edit or delete their own record.

Continuous logs are maintained of The Aspergillus Website web server activity. These log files include the details of your IP address, browser type, page last visited etc. Log files are used to analyse usage of The Aspergillus Website, and may be kept in an anonymised form for historical records.

Some parts of The Aspergillus website may use cookies for security purposes (e.g. to save the user from having to re-enter their details for every page in a section of the site). Cookies are not used to capture or store personal information for any other purpose, and all cookies are deleted as soon as a session is ended. You may choose to refuse cookies by disabling them using your web browser (see below for instructions). Further information about cookies may be found at www.allaboutcookies.org (external website).

If you email us to ask a question, report a fault etc, we will only use the personal data you provide to reply to your message. We do not keep this information, or share it with any third party unless you have consented to this or this is so permitted by law.
