Big Brother Watch takes your privacy very seriously!
The Data Protection Act
Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information collected from you (as does anyone else that accumulates information about you – which is worth remembering). We use leading technologies and encryption software to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it.
What information does Big Brother Watch collect?
We collect four kinds of information from visitors to the website:
- Mailing list subscribers
- Feedback (through visitors emailing us)
- Comments (on posts)
- Site usage information
If you want to receive our newsletter, you can sign up to receive it. We will (i) never add you if you haven’t asked to go onto the list, (ii) never share the list with anyone else and (iii) never use it for any other purpose. You can unsubscribe from the list very easily at any time.
We welcome your feedback.
Should you send an email to us making a point, seeking advice or asking for information, your email will NOT be passed on to anyone outside Big Brother Watch without your express permission.
We only edit comments for extreme profanity, and delete spam comments. You will note that you are required by the engine we use to put in an e-mail address – please feel free to use a false one.
