Your privacy is critically important to us. At Spirit HR we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services
At Spirit HR we ensure we meet our legal obligations as laid down by the Data Protection Act 1998
Spirit HR operates several websites including spirit-hr.co.uk. It is Spirit HR’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Spirit HR collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Spirit HR’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Spirit HR’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Spirit HR may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Spirit HR also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Spirit HR does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Spirit HR’s websites choose to interact with Spirit HR in ways that require Spirit HR to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Spirit HR gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
Spirit HR may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Spirit HR may monitor the most popular blogs on the spirit-hr.co.uk site. Spirit HR may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Spirit HR does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Spirit HR discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Spirit HR’s behalf or to provide services available at Spirit HR’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Spirit HR’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Spirit HR will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Spirit HR discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Spirit HR believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Spirit HR, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of an Spirit HR website and have supplied your email address, Spirit HR may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Spirit HR and our products. We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Spirit HR takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
