Legal Disclaimer / Privacy Policy

COFFRA is committed to protecting your privacy and this Privacy Policy sets out our privacy practices. Please take the time to review this Privacy Policy carefully as it tells you how we collect information, what we do with it and what controls you have.

COFFRA is not responsible for the privacy policies of third party sites to which links are provided. The privacy policies on these sites should be checked before providing any personal information to these sites.

Collection of Information
COFFRA will only collect and use personal data voluntarily and openly provided to this site. Authorised users are able to browse the site without disclosing any personal information. An authorised user of this site may choose to provide COFFRA with limited personal data as required in order to register for certain services; once registered the information will only be used for the specified purpose(s).

At the present time IP addresses of authorised users are not logged for either administrative or other purposes. The IP address indicates the location of the authorised users’ computer on the Internet. If it is decided to log IP addresses in the future, the information so obtained may be aggregated to provide statistical information about the users of the site. However no individual user will be identifiable from such information and IP addresses will not be used to track the access to the site. COFFRA does not require registration for access to the site.

It will normally be clear when personal information is being collected. The information required is the minimum necessary to enable COFFRA to deal with the services requested, but additional information may be requested in order for COFFRA to provide the most appropriate response. If such additional information is requested it is highlighted and its provision is voluntary.

Sensitive personal data includes gender, race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or other beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal records. We do not solicit sensitive personal data through the Site except where legally required to do so, e.g. for the purposes of recruitment.

At the present time the standard technology known as “cookies” is used on the site. Cookies are small text files placed on the authorized user’s hard drive that allow the site to store tokens of information in connection with use of the site by allocation of an identifier to an authorized user while the site is in use. Use of cookies would enable COFFRA to analyze the operation of the site, thus permitting continuous improvement of the service that it provides, but cannot retrieve any other data from the hard drive of the authorized user’s computer or capture the authorized user’s e-mail address. In any event it is not intended to link personal data to information that may be contained in a cookie to determine or track the identity of any user of the site.

Use of Information
Information is used only for the specific purpose for which it was provided except where there has been an explicit selection to receive other information from COFFRA. Personal data provided through the site will be made available to the provider of the information on request. Personal information may be deleted from the site at any time. Requests for copies or deletion of information may be made by e-mailing info(at) at any time.

Provision of Information to Third Parties
COFFRA will not provide personal information to third parties.

Accuracy of Information
COFFRA assumes responsibility for keeping an accurate record of personal data once it has been submitted, but not for confirming the ongoing accuracy of the personal information. If COFFRA is advised that the personal data is no longer accurate, it will be amended (where practical).

Retention of Information
Information collected from authorized users of the site will only be kept in order to provide the required services. Once the service has been completed all information will be destroyed. Where the information has been collected in connection with an expression of interest in working for COFFRA or a Participant Firm it is agreed that COFFRA may use, hold and destroy personal data supplied in connection with the initial expression of interest in accordance with COFFRA’s standard recruitment procedures:

· Details may be retained for up to the next twelve months for the purpose of notification of suitable vacancies that might arise; and
· Details may be used for the purpose of research and analysis designed to improve recruitment and human resources policies and practices.
Where the authorized user of the site has provided additional information, personal details will be retained for a period of time reasonable in the context of the nature of the request.
If these conditions are not acceptable the site should not be further used.

Security of Information
COFFRA has implemented accepted standards of technical measures and security policies that are aimed at protecting the personal data it has under its control from:

· Unauthorized access
· Improper use or disclosure
· Unauthorized modification
· Unlawful destruction or accidental loss
All COFFRA personnel are required to keep personal information confidential and only authorized persons have access to such information.
