Information Collection and Use
All information collected on this site becomes the property of the site owner for the purposes of administering and running the business. The site owner is defined as the domain holder for the domain "High.St" and Solution Management Ltd, the operator of the High.St service. No usage will occur other than that stated elsewhere in this policy.
The information collected during registration will be used to set up your account, including where to forward your emails and your preferred web link. We also ask for contact details and a brief description of what you sell so that this can be included as extra information to visitors.
The only information collected during registration is what the subscriber can clearly see and enters his or her self. No hidden details are collected.
We do not maintain log files of information that enables us to identify visitors but we do monitor the site access statistics to see how many people have visited the visit, which pages they visited and so on. We do reserve the right to track IP addresses in the event of suspected security breaches that affect the integrity of the site or the information it contains or customer information.
We do not share information with any third party except where that information is necessary to complete the financial transaction associated with subscription. Hence, Standing Order, Direct Debit and (in the future) Credit Card information will need to be passed to the relevant financial institution. If the situation with regard to general information changes, subscribers will be protected under the Opt-out clause below whereby they will be notified of the change and will be given the opportunity to opt out.
Links are provided to other websites in good faith however we can accept no liability for the content of those sites should they change from that which we accepted at the time of registration. We do not knowingly link to adult sites or sites that we consider offensive. Any inappropriate links brought to our attention will be investigated as a matter of urgency and will be removed if they breach our terms and conditions or our moral ethics code. All the direct content of www.High.St is regigistered with the Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) and certified as being free from adult content. We want to keep it that way.
There are no plans to operate a newsletter on this site.
Surveys and Contests
We have no plans for surveys, giveaways or other contests but would not wish visitors to be denied the opportunity to win something should our more generous subscribers wish to donate a prize. However, all entrants will be free to choose whether they enter and separate conditions will be provided for each competition, survey, etc.
We do not operate a facility for 'emailing this site to a friend' so there are no privacy issues in this section. Of course, we are happy for you to tell your friends about the High Street and would encourage you to do so!
The customer details collected during registration are not sent by secure means. We do not believe this is necessary because of the simplicity and public nature of the information requested. Please contact us directly if you have any concerns.
At present we have no need to compare user supplied data with information retrieved from outside resources. However, in due course, when credit card payments are offered for example, some user information, such as their credit card details may be authorised by external companies. This will be across secure servers and is akin to any e-commerce transaction or credit card authorisation made over the telephone or in a shop.
We may send you special offers from time to time but these will always be directly relevant to the High.St service you have subscribed to.
Site and Service Updates
We will advise you of all major changes to the service, this will include new services and facilities as well as planned down times.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
We will happily update customer information to ensure its accuracy. In some cases, we may need evidence of the change to protect your security. In due course, an online system for you to check and update your own information may be provided.
It is not our intention to collect more information about our customers than we need to operate the service or to share this information outside the company. However, if this changes, all registrants will be given the option to opt out. We will endeavour to bind this condition on any Board or purchasing company should High.St ever be sold.
Notification of Changes
If it is necessary to amend this privacy statement and if applicable, we will advise members and offer them the option to opt out. The latest version of the privacy statement will always be available on this web site.
