WorkSafe Training is committed to safeguarding the privacy of its website visitors; this policy sets out how WorkSafe will treat your personal information.
(1) What information does WorkSafe collect?
WorkSafe may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal data:
(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views);
(b) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us;
(c) information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters;
(d) any other information that you choose to send to us.
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
WorkSafe use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. WorkSafe will use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website and the company will use the persistent cookies to: enable the WorkSafe website to recognise you when you visit;
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites including WorkSafe’s website.
(3) Using your personal data
WorkSafe may use your personal information to:
(a) administer the website;
(b) improve your browsing experience by personalising the website;
(c) enable your use of the services available on the website;
(d) send you general (non-marketing) commercial communications;
(e) send you email notifications which you have specifically requested;
(f) send to you WorkSafe’s newsletter and other marketing communications relating to its business which it thinks may be of interest to you by post or, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform WorkSafe at any time if you no longer require marketing communications);
(g) deal with enquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to the website.
Where you submit personal information for publication on the WorkSafe website, the company will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the license you grant to WorkSafe.
WorkSafe will not without your express consent provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.
In addition, WorkSafe may disclose information about you:
(a) to the extent that WorkSafe is required to do so by law;

(6) Security of your personal data
WorkSafe will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
WorkSafe will store all the personal information you provide on its secure (password and firewall protected) servers. All electronic transactions you make to or receive from WorkSafe will be encrypted.
While WorkSafe endeavours to protect your information, t, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and WorkSafe therefore cannot wholly guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
