To make this notice easy to find, we have made it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

Under the Data Protection Act, Inspired Life CIC have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us strict permission to do so.

If this privacy policy changes in any way, we will place an updated version on this page.

Information you supply – we receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other form. You can choose not to provide certain information, but in doing so may prevent us responding to you or contacting you. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our website, gathering statistics and communicating with you.

Automatic Information: we receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us, such as cookies and log files.

For example, like many websites, we use "cookies" and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses www.inspiredlife.org.

E-mail Communications: to help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Inspired Life if your computer supports such capabilities. If you send an email or letter to Inspired Life asking for information, we may need to contact other members or departments to find the answer. We do include your personal information when dealing with your enquiry. When Inspired Life replies to you, we keep a record of your message for reference and audit purposes.

Information from Other Sources: we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.

1.3 How does Inspired Life use my information?

Inspired Life use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website. For example, we may tell a partner that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form on the forum, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above.

Following registrations we may voluntarily request some more information to collect some demographics data. This will always be used in a non-identifying manner. The Inspired Life site is about helping a range of young people and communities, not just one particular segment of society. Inspired Life is funded by local authorities and from schools directly and we need to show statistics to them about the range of people using our site / and services.

Whilst the raw information from the site will not be sent to another organisation, we have designed the information we collect to help keep it semi-anonymous:

You do not have to use your real name.

We do not collect your address, although we may ask for the first 4 digits of your postcode – which will allow us to see what part of the country you are from.

Inspired Life may take such action as we deem appropriate to deal with any information sent to us of unsuitable content, including suspending or cancelling your account, restricting your access to Inspired Life, or commencing legal proceedings against you. Inspired Life may use your personal information to stop such behaviour and inform relevant agencies if necessary.

1.4 Under what circumstances will Inspired Life contact you?

Inspired Life may contact you for the following reasons:

You have subscribed to receive further information or regular updates.

1.5 Can I find out what personal information Inspired Life holds about me?

Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to request a copy of the personal information Inspired Life holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by using the contact details specified in this policy. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

We will endeavour to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files at your request. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.

1.6 Our commitment to children's privacy

If you are aged 18 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission before providing personal information to Inspired Life. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.

Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important, however we only collect minimal information and this only content submitted to Inspired Life. We reserve the right to remove user generated content and edit it to protect identity of young people.

Cookies are created on your computer when you visit Inspired Life.

Cookies are stored in the cookie directory of your hard drive, and do not expire at the end of your session. They do however, have a fixed lifetime and will be deleted from your system if you have not visited Inspired Life within that time.

1.8 How does Inspired Life use log files?

Log files allow us to record visitors' use of the site. We analyse log file information from all our visitors and use it to make changes to the layout of the site and to the information in it, based on the way that visitors move around it.

Log files do not contain any personal information and they are not used to identify any individual patterns of use of the site.

Log files that we refer to are text based (flat files) and not the database we use on the forum.

The aggregated version of the log files are used to provide usage statistics to develop the site, our services and partners.

1.9 What about the other companies involved in regards to my data and privacy?

Inspired Life maintains development copies of the site and our own backups, possibly including all information on the site.

Memset is the hosting provider for the actual servers, and they take daily backups of all the data. The servers are all hosted in the United Kingdom, and the backup data is stored offsite, but still in the United Kingdom.
