This website is provided by Panoply Digital Ltd., based at 35-37 Blackstock Road, London N4 2JF, UK. Panoply Digital Ltd. offers consultancy services, research and course design, and related information. We are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of information provided by those parties ("Users") who access our website at http://www.panoplydigital.com and we uphold the relevant data protection principles and process all personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

On May 25, 2018 the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced new rules and protections about how organizations use and process personal data about persons in the European Union. Read more about the GDPR here.

1 Collection of Personal Information

1.1 In order for Users to use some of our online services and to gain the full benefits of such services we need to collect and process various personal data. Prior to accessing the areas of our Site which require you to enter a password, Users may be asked to complete an online form(s) which requests personal data about Users, such as their name, address, email address, telephone and fax numbers.

1.2 We may also automatically receive certain information about your device when you use our Services. For example, we may receive:

  • Information about your interactions with our Services, such as the content you view, information collected by Google Analytics, and information in other cookies and similar technologies.

  • Information about how you access our Services, including information about the type of device you’re using, your browser or operating system, the language in which you asked to view our Service, the referring website through which you accessed our Services, links that you click while using our Services, your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, location information, and certain device identifiers that may be unique to your device.

2 Processing of data

2.1 The personal data we collect is used to process your request for our services, to provide such services, and to keep records of those who use our services so that we can contact Users in the event that any other relevant product or service becomes available and inform Users of other Panoply Digital services that may be of interest to them.

2.2 However, Panoply Digital does not track its users over time or across third party websites to provide targeted advertising.

2.3  A “cookie” is a text-only piece of information that a website transfers to your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will normally contain the name of the internet domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

Panoply Digital uses cookies and collects IP addresses (an IP address is a number that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet). We use analysis software to look at IP addresses and cookies for the purpose of enhancing your user experience.

You may block cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. To prevent the download of cookies, or otherwise control how cookies are used on your computer, please read the “Help” information supplied with your internet browser software or go to: www.allaboutcookies.org.

Panoply Digital uses Google Analytics, a service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies. The information associated with the cookie about your use of the Service (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States or other countries, and may be shared with Panoply Digital in aggregated form. For more information about how Google uses the data it collects in connection with Google Analytics—and how you can control the information sent to Google—please select this link: http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

3 Disclosure of information to third parties

3.1 We will use our reasonable endeavours not to disclose Users' information to any other third parties, unless we are required to do so by law or any court order, unless a User consents to such disclosure. If The Lab intends to disclose a member’s information to law enforcement or in response to a legal process, we will make reasonable efforts to promptly notify the member—and, if the member is under 18, the member’s parent or legal guardian—unless directed not to by a court of law.

3.2 We may share your information with service providers that perform certain functions or services on our behalf, such as Google Analytics and Squarespace.

3.3 We may share de-identified and aggregate information. We may share de-identified or aggregate data with any entity, including for research and analysis purposes. De-identified data is data that is not linked or reasonably linkable to a particular person or device. Aggregate data is data we collect that has been combined with information from others so that the recipient of the data is not able to identify any particular person or device from the data. However, we will never share personally identifiable information with third party commercial entities for direct marketing purposes, unless you give us permission.

4 Security

4.1 This Site and our computer systems have security measures in place with the aim of protecting the loss, misuse or alteration of the information Users provide to us.

4.2 Protection of our users’ information is important to us, so we maintain security safeguards to help protect against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction of the information you provide to us. However, please note that no data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your information.

4.3 The privacy and protection of children is of great importance to us. We will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information from children under the age of 18 without obtaining consent from a parent or legal guardian, except as otherwise permitted by law.

5 Removing personal information

5.1 Users may request that their personal data is removed from our systems by writing to us at the address below or by emailing team@panoplydigital.com.

5.2 If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
