To enable us to conduct research we may share your information with third party suppliers employed to help. All results of any research and analysis will be anonymised or aggregated information and will not reveal any personal details of individual users.

Log-in and pre-population cookies

There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use the Site.

Visitor statistics cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited the Site, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when the Site isn't working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the Site and what pages they view. These so called "analytics" programs also tell us how people reached the Site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before. This information helps us to continuously improve the Site and your user experience.

We use:

Google analytics

Turning off cookies

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our's and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware". Therefore, rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.

External links

The Site may, from time to time, contain links to external sites. Adlin Professional is not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of such sites and we recommend that you read the privacy policies on any external sites you use.

Security policy

Adlin Professional aims to protect your privacy and ensure your personal details are not misused, accidentally destroyed, lost or altered within Adlin Professional.
Occasionally we share your details with other companies who are managing data for us (eg fulfilment bureaux, database consultants etc.). They are only permitted to process your data with explicit permission from Adlin Professional, enabling them to perform the services required.

Transfer of personal data overseas

As the internet is a global environment, collecting and processing personal information may involve the transmission of this data internationally, including outside of the European Union. Therefore, by communicating electronically with us you acknowledge and agree to your personal data being processed in this way.

Changes to this statement

From time to time, we may make changes to the privacy policy. This may be in relation to changes in the law, best practice or changes in our services. These changes will be reflected in this statement, so you should check here from time to time.
