Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains the information that RLSI,” “we,” “our,” or “us”) collects on www.rlsi.co.uk and other web sites which are owned or operated by RLSI. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Please also read our Terms of Use, which governs your use of the Web Site. Your use of the Web Site indicates to us that you have read and accept our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Policy. Please note that this Privacy Policy only covers information collection practices on the Web Site and does not cover any information collected by us offline or elsewhere.

INFORMATION COLLECTED

Certain features on this Web Site may ask you to provide us with personally identifiable information, which is information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally (such as your name, address, or e-mail address) You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in some or all of the Web Site’s features. This Web Site is not directed to children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. If we discover that a child younger than the age of 13 has provided this Web Site with personally identifiable information, we will delete that child’s personally identifiable information from our database.

In addition, when you visit or download information from this Web Site, our web servers may automatically collect web site usage information. Web site usage information is non-personally identifiable information that describes how our visitors use and navigate this Web Site. It can include the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their stays, browser type, referrer data that identifies the web page visited prior and subsequent to visiting the Web Site, and IP address (see below for more information on IP addresses). We also may determine the applicable technology available in order to serve you the most appropriate version of a web page, e-mail or similar service.

USE OF INTERNET PROTOCOL (“IP”) ADDRESSES

An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer or network when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from this Web Site, our servers log your IP address. We may use IP addresses for a number of purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the use of the Web Site. We may also use IP addresses in cooperation with internet service providers or law enforcement agencies to identify users if we deem it necessary to comply with law, to enforce compliance with this Privacy Policy or this Web Site’s Terms of Use, or to protect the Web Site or its users.

USE OF COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS

Cookies are pieces of information that a web site either transfers to your computer’s hard drive or stores temporarily in your computer’s memory for record-keeping purposes. We may use cookies for a number of purposes, such as to track site usage. RLSI does not save personally identifiable information in cookies, but we may link the cookie to any personally identifiable information or other information we collect. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent by indicating this in the preferences or options menu in your browser. However, it is possible that some parts of this Web Site will not operate correctly if you disable cookies and you may not be able to take advantage of or participate in certain features of this Web Site. You should consult with your browser’s provider/manufacturer if you have any questions regarding disabling cookies.
Our web pages or e-mails may contain a small graphic image called a web beacon (which is sometimes also called a “web bug” or “clear gif”) and which allows the party that set the web beacon to monitor and collect certain limited information about the viewer of the web page or e-mail message (such as the type of browser downloading the web beacon, the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to and the time the web beacon was viewed, as well as the URL of the page the web beacon comes from). Web beacons are typically very small (generally 1-by-1 pixel) and invisible to the user, but, in general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or e-mail message, including an advertisement or HTML content, can act as a web beacon. We may use web beacons for a number of purposes, such as to count visitors to our web pages or to monitor how our users navigate this Web Site, and we may include web beacons in e-mails in order to count how many e-mails (or particular items within the e-mails) we sent were actually opened.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED AT THE WEB SITE

We may use your personally identifiable information to answer a question or provide you with requested information, for internal business purposes, to contact you in our discretion regarding your use of the Web Site or changes to our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy, or for other purposes disclosed at the time you submit your information. We may also add the information you provide to our databases, subscriber lists, and/or contact lists.

RLSI does not share the personally identifiable information collected through the Web Site with third parties except as set forth below or elsewhere in this Privacy Policy:

  • In response to judicial, administrative or similar proceeding or order, such as subpoena, or a request from local, county or any other enforcement officials or other governmental authorities conducting an investigation;
  • When RLSI employs third parties to perform functions on its behalf, which may include, without limitation, third party hosting companies, communication services (including e-mail), and data analysts. These third parties may have access to personally identifiable information in order to perform such services on RLSI’s behalf; or
  • In the event RLSI merges with another business entity or has a similar corporate change.
  • We may also disclose non-personally identifying information, such as aggregated user statistics, to third parties.

SECURITY

We use safeguards to help protect personally identifiable information we collect on this Web Site from unauthorized access, use, modification or disclosure. However, due to the design of the Internet and other factors outside of our control, we cannot guarantee that your information or communications between you and our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.

LINKS

While on the Web Site or viewing an e-mail or other content provided by RLSI or the Web Site, you may encounter links to other web sites or online materials operated by third parties. If you “click” on a link to such a third party, the “click” takes you off the Web Site and to a third party’s web site, which is beyond RLSI’s control. These other web sites may set their own cookies, collect data or have their own privacy policies and practices. As noted above, this Privacy Policy only covers information collected by RLSI on this Web Site, and we encourage you to review the privacy policy of any other web site you visit. Links to any third party web site or content do not constitute or imply an endorsement or recommendation by RLSI of the linked web site or content.

ACCEPTANCE & PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

By using this Site, you accept our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to modify, alter or otherwise update this Privacy Policy at any time. We will post any new or revised policies on the Web Site, but we will only use your personally identifiable information in accordance with the privacy policy that was in effect at the time it was collected, unless you consent to any new terms regarding its use.

This RLSI Privacy Policy has an effective date of June 2012.
