The following informational statement is an informal document that includes major points of explanation and terms of usage for all visitors. What is provided here is done so in good faith but no guarantees are made as to its accuracy or completeness. The terms may change at any point without warning, and such changes may not necessarily be reflected on this page. In all instances relating to the use of this site the decision of the Webmaster is final.
This website and the information it contains are copyright © Graham Haynes. Unauthorised duplication, storage or modification of this website is strictly prohibited except for public caching of public pages for indexing purposes, private and secure caching of public and restricted pages, and other such purposes as expressly approved by myself or reasonably implied by the site content and context.
Data collected from the website is not in any way sold or otherwise provided to any person or organisation other than myself. While steps have been taken to protect the data on this website its security cannot be guaranteed. By using this website you agree to treat any personal information you gather about me with respect and not to use it for profit, without thought for data protection, or otherwise for purposes of which I do not approve. If you need clarification please contact me.
Accounts are used primarily to protect sensitive information on this website and you are asked to take care to protect any log-in details that you have and any information that you obtain using them. The account system protects against unauthorised storage or usage of my information by spiders and robots as well as restricting access to unauthorised people. Using the guest account is sufficient to confirm that a visitor is a human but not sufficient enough to identify the individual, hence the guest account has very limited access to sensitive information and visitors wanting to view restricted information are encouraged to apply for their own account. You can log in as a guest by clicking the 'Log in as Guest' links. Accounts are also used to monitor patterns of use that may help improve this website.
Most forms except those for logging in are not processed automatically. Applications are individually reviewed and may be refused, particularly if I believe them to be in conflict with UK data protection legislation or if I choose to refuse you access.
Courtesy accounts are pre-approved, though some information may still be required to log in using them. All accounts have various security access levels which may prohibit access to sensitive information even if you are logged in. Courtesy accounts can usually be upgraded to full accounts with higher privileges by selecting the apply option during the second phase of logging in. Non-courtesy accounts have only a single form to complete a log in.
Accounts may have an expiry date that you will be notified of after signing in, on the front page, and after automatically logging in if your account is due to expire shortly. This date can be changed, along with your other account details by completing the account management form. After your account expires it may be removed from the system in order to comply with data protection legislation.
In general references to 'me', 'I', 'Author' or 'Webmaster' on this website should be taken to refer to Graham Haynes. References to 'we' or 'us' will often be references to more than one of Graham Haynes, other individuals or referenced partners, or automated parts of this website and associated systems.
If it is apparent that this website is being abused then steps will be taken to block those instigating the abuse. I do not advocate misuse of Internet services, including but not limited to spam, viruses, denial of service and other forms of attack. Action will be taken against anyone found to be involved in such attacks or abuses.
