What personal data does is collect?

This website automatically collects web traffic information about visitors to the site such as your IP address. No personal information is requested from users of the site unless a site visitor completes the contact form.

How is your information used?

If you use to send us an email, we will respond and take the opportunity to ask for your specific, informed consent for your records to be kept for further correspondence about relevant news or services. With that exception, the site is not used as a messaging platform, so all correspondence with MiSST will be conducted via email, instant messaging or telephone. As such, no personal details are kept directly via this website.

Who has access to your information?

We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

Security of Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

All personal details are held on encrypted devices, protected with password protection which where possible is dual-factor authenticated.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Use of ‘cookies’

‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual. The MiSST website only uses the default cookie set-up provided by WordPress.
