No personally identifiable information is collected without consent of the user. Optionally, if you enter details on this website, they will be collected and then stored securely.


What organizations are collecting the information?

Ridgeon Network Ltd only. We do not share the information with any third parties without consent.


How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?

Only if supplied by the user do we use Personally Identifiable Information to customize the Site, to make appropriate service offerings, and to fulfill your requests on the Site. We may email Visitors and Authorized Customers about the Site or information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to contact Visitors and Authorized Customers in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.


With whom may the information may be shared?

Personally Identifiable Information about Authorized Customers is not shared with third parties or other members, except for where you choose to display this information (on your profile page etc, where applicable). We may share aggregated information about our Visitors, including the demographics of our Visitors and Authorized Customers, with our affiliated agencies and third party vendors. Third parties will only ever receive non-personally identifiable information and will not contact you without prior consent.

Are Cookies Used on the Site?

We use Cookies to obtain information about the preferences of our Visitors and the services they select. We also use Cookies for security purposes to protect our Authorized Customers. For example, if an Authorized Customer is logged on and the site is unused for more than a preset amount of time, we will automatically log the Authorized Customer off.

Visitors and Authorized Customers may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at admin@ridgeon-network.co.uk


Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?

We provide Visitors and Authorized Customers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site's database by contacting admin@ridgeon-network.co.uk. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor's entry without retaining some residual information retrospectively. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.
