Outside the Box Development Support


This page explains how Outside the Box uses any information you give to us, and the ways in which we protect your privacy.

The Data Protection Act

Under the Data Protection Act 1998, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We use leading technologies to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it. We do not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission to do so.

What information do we collect?

We collect three kinds of information from visitors on otbds.org: contact details for publication orders, details from emails you may send us and server log files.

Publication orders

If you opt to purchase publications from the otbds.org, the information we collect is; your title, name, postal address, email address, contact telephone numbers, payment details and products ordered. We do not store credit or debit card details as payment is received by cheque or into our bank account.

This information is stored to allow us to send you the products purchased. A copy of this information is kept securely by Outside the Box and will be held until such time you inform Outside the Box otherwise. This information is also stored on back-up tapes to avoid loss of data.
Emailed queries

If you email us, the information we collect is: your title, name and email address.

This information is stored to allow us to reply to your query. This information is also stored on back-up tapes to avoid loss of data. We do not pass this information to third parties, unless you specifically request this.

Log files

Log files allow us to record visitors' use of the website. We gather log file information from all our visitors, which we use to make changes to the layout of the site and to the information in it, based on the way that visitors move around and interact with it. Log files do not contain any personal information.
Changes to this privacy policy

If this privacy policy changes in any way, we will place an updated version on this page. Regularly reviewing this page ensures you are always aware of what information we collect, and how we use it.
