Privacy Policy

INTRODUCTION

The Westminster Property Association is committed to protecting the privacy of all personal information obtained from you during your visits to our website. Our aim is to safeguard the security and privacy of all users, whilst providing a personalised service which keeps our members up to date with news and information about issues affecting the industry. This policy explains our information practices.

USE OF PERSONAL DATA

Some parts of the WPA website are available to all users; other areas are only accessible to WPA members who log in to the site. We process your personal data only for the specific and limited purpose of making it available, as a contact point, to other members; and we ask only for that data which is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes.

The WPA website does not automatically capture or store personal data from general visitors to the site other than to log the users IP address and hostname, and session details such as the duration of the visit, pages visited and the nature of the browser used. This information does not identify you personally; it is used to help us diagnose problems with our data server, to administer our website, and to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of the site. For example, we may use this data to track which pages our users are visiting most often, or to determine which web browsers our visitors use.

USE OF COOKIES

A ‘cookie’ is a small data file that a website may send to your browser and that your browser may then store on your system. The site currently does not use cookies

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

Our privacy policy does not apply to third party websites that may be accessible through links from the WPA website. These hyperlinks are provided for your reference and convenience only and do not imply endorsement of their activities or products unless otherwise stated. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of those third parties to learn how they collect and use information about you before using the site or providing any personal data about yourself.

SECURITY AND TRANSFERS

We do not provide an absolute guarantee of security for your registration details; however, where possible, we store all your details in a secure environment and employ appropriate technical security measures to protect your personal information and ensure that it is not accessed by unauthorised persons.

Owing to the global nature of the internet infrastructure, any information you have provided (eg contact details) may be transferred in transit to countries which do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy. By providing such information you have consented to these transfers.

NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

Any changes to this privacy policy will be posted here so that you will always know what information we are collecting online, how we use it and what choices you have.
