Collection of Information

When you visit and navigate our website, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. By "personal information", we refer to data that is unique to an individual, such as name, address, e-mail address or contact number. However, for each visitor to our website, our web server collects the following type of information for statistical purposes:

    the number of users who visit the website
    the date and time and length of your visits
    the number of pages viewed
    address of the last site visited, if linked to our website from another website
    Internet Protocol number assigned to your computer for Internet access
    operating system used (e.g. Windows 2000, Windows NT)
    browser used (e.g. Internet explorer, Netscape Navigator)

The statistical data collected is anonymous and no attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities. We will use this data to evaluate our website performance and to improve the content and service that we deliver to you.
Links to Other Sites

Users should be aware that when you are on WordinHand site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. This is done through links to other sites from within our webpages that will take you outside of our service. These other sites may send their own cookies (see below for explanation) to users, collect data or solicit personal information.

Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online - for example, submitting forms and sending emails - that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. While WordinHand strives to protect its user's personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

In order to provide you with a range of website features, online products and services, this website uses cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make web surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you are at our sites thus allowing easier and faster access when you return to the site at another time. Please note that we never save passwords or credit card information in cookies. The use of cookies is an industry standard and you will find them at most major websites.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, note that some parts of WordinHand website will not function properly, or may be considerably slower if you refuse cookies.
IP Addresses

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) whenever you access the internet. This number may be the same each time you access the internet or it may change. Like other internet sites, this website uses IP addresses to collect aggregate information about numbers of visitors and site usage. The address is logged on our server when your computer requests information from our website. However, to allow users to access our site anonymously, your IP address is not linked with personal information about you. WordinHand reserves the right, in rare instances, to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten our site, service or clients.
When You Provide Information

The type of information that we collect from you will depend on what activities and services you use on the site. Specific details on each activity and service are detailed within those sub-page(s) and supersede this general statement. When you provide us with personal details ie when applying for a volunteer "group" or "event", we will request personal information such as your name and address, your e-mail address or a contact phone number.

This information is fundamental in order for you to utilise our service, and so that we may contact you when necessary on issues relating directly to the service or activity. This practice is consistent with our service policies.

We will not use your personal information for any purpose which is not related to the products or services we provide to you, or for any purpose for which you would not reasonably expect us to use the information. However, your information may be used by us to enable us to offer you other products and services that will enhance our relationship with you. It is your decision whether you wish us to provide this service to you.
Security of Captured Data

The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our clients is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your computer to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products and services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. All stored client information is protected from unauthorised access through the use of a secure password and user log-on in a database outside of this domain.
