Privacy and Data Protection Policy

User Anonymity and Personal Information on the Veterans First Point Website: Log files are maintained and analysed of all requests for files on the servers. Aggregated analyses of these log files are used to monitor website usage, for example, overall popularity of the site and typical user paths through the site.

In combination with other information which is not collected by Veterans First Point but which may be collected by suppliers of network services, it may in certain situations be possible to identify an individual user's use of the Veterans First Point website. Veterans First Point does not collect the additional information required and will make no attempt to track or identify individual users, except where explicit consent for this is given or where there is a reasonable suspicion that unauthorised access to systems is being attempted. In the case of all users, Veterans First Point reserves the right to attempt to identify and track any individual who is reasonably suspected of trying to gain unauthorised access to computer systems or resources operating as part of the Veterans First Point service. As a condition of use of this site, all users must give permission for Veterans First Point to use its access logs to attempt to track users who are reasonably suspected of gaining or attempting to gain unauthorised access.

All log file information collected by Veterans First Point is kept secure and no access to raw log files is given to any third party.

In certain cases, an Veterans First Point participating website may implement a registration scheme which will allow usage to be tracked. Veterans First Point policies do not permit this to be done except in cases where users have given informed consent for this to be done, and offending sites will be removed should Veterans First Point become aware of any breaches of this policy. Veterans First Point will endeavour to ensure that participating organisations have proper data-protection procedures in place in respect of the information they make available through their websites.
