QCIC is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We use the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications about QCIC that may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.
The ‘personally identifiable information’ is information that enables us to identify you, such as your email address, name, title, and address.
Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated. This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically.
1. What personally identifiable information does QCIC collect about me?
Like many websites, QCIC uses ‘cookies’ in order to provide you with a more personalised web service. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the ‘lifetime’ of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. A cookie is a text-only string of information that we pass to your computer’s hard disk through your web-browser so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.
We use one type of cookie on our website, per session cookies, which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the site.
2. How does QCIC use my information?
QCIC uses the information we collect about you to help us understand more about how our site is used and to be able to send you communications that we believe may be of interest to you, either electronically or otherwise.
3. Who is collecting your information?
When you are on the QCIC website and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with QCIC solely unless stated otherwise.
4. Who does QCIC share my information with?
As a general rule, QCIC will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information, except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. When you are using our secure online shop you are going through to a partner credit card processing company and the information you give such as your credit card number and contact information is provided so that the transaction can take place.
5. Do I have any choice regarding the gathering, use and distribution of my information?
If you indicated that you are interested in receiving regular information (such as our newsletter or regular emails) we will send you communications regarding QCIC, either electronically or otherwise. QCIC does not sell or rent any user information to anyone.
6. What is QCIC’s policy on allowing me to update, correct, or delete my personally identifiable information?
The accuracy of your individual identifying information is important to us. If you change email address or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please inform us.
7. How does QCIC protect my personal information?
QCIC is committed to taking reasonable steps to protect the individual identifying information that you provide to us.
8. What about my children’s privacy?
The safety of children is very important to us. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online.
9. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?
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, QCIC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, 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.
We use a stats report on this site so every single visitor leaves an IP address which identifies them.
