Protecting The Privacy Of Customers & Users

At Athona we take matters such as protecting the confidentiality of our customers and users of the Athona website seriously, and with this in mind the following is an explanation of how we process information about visitors to the website.

Collection Of Personal Information

  1. English law and jurisdiction applies with respect to the content of this site and the information submitted. In particular we recognise and address our obligations under the provisions of the Data Protection Act (1998).
  2. The information which we collect and store during normal use of the site is used to monitor and analyse how parts of the site are used. Such use does not result in any personally identifiable data being collected or stored.
  3. We will not disclose without your consent any personal information we collect about you when you visit the site to a third party outside Athona Ltd. In connection with any application, request or enquiry you make, your information will be passed directly to the relevant contact within the business unit of Athona Ltd.
  4. By submitting your personal information through this website, you are consenting to it being processed in the manner described above by Athona Ltd.
  5. Certain links contained within this website may lead to external servers and sites which are maintained by third parties unconnected to Athona, over which we have no control. We can accept no responsibility or liability in respect of any material contained within those sites or servers.
  6. We are unable to offer any guarantee that the contents of the site are free from viruses or similar which have destructive or contaminating properties and shall therefore have no liability in respect thereof. We regularly check the site for viruses using the leading proprietary virus checking software.
  7. At present, the option of storing candidates CV’s within our database exists, and at this time no option exists for third parties to access this database. If a decision is made to change this aspect of the site then we will seek your consent first. While all reasonable security measures have been implemented, we are unable to accept responsibility for intrusion by third parties acting illegally.

In the event that we change or alter in some way our disclaimer or privacy policy, such changes will be posted here automatically for you to view. If, at any time you have any questions or concerns regarding this or any other matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Cookies

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently remembering your preferences, and generally improve your website experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

We split cookies into 4 main categories:

  • Category 1: Strictly Necessary Cookies
  • Category 2: Performance Cookies
  • Category 3: Functionality Cookies
  • Category 4: Targeting Cookies or Advertising Cookies

Category 1 – Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like register for job alerts, cannot be provided.

Please be aware our site uses this type of cookie.

Category 2 – Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

By using our website and online services, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Category 3 – Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name and password) and provide enhanced, more personal features.

These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

By using our website and online services, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Category 4 – Targeting Cookies or Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations.

We do have links to other websites and once you access another site through a link that we have provided it is the responsibility of that site to provide information as to how they use cookies on the respective site.

Most web browsers will accept cookies, but if you would rather that we did not collect data in this way you can choose to accept all or some or reject cookies in your browser’s privacy settings. Rejecting all cookies means that certain features cannot then be provided to you and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website’s features and you may be prevented from using the site’s services. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies.
