This policy outlines how Abelard Consulting uses the information it collects from visitors to its web site. It also provides a legal disclaimer regarding the accuracy or otherwise of information provided on its web site.
What information do we collect and how is it used?
The only information Abelard Consulting collects is the information users provide on the forms found on the pages of this web site. Under no circumstances is this information made available to others, whether freely or via a commercial transaction.
Abelard Consulting uses a hit counter service. This service records various attributes of a visitor's computer (such as screen size, browser, operating system, and the like). This service does not enable Abelard Consulting to match a visitor to its web site with any particular person, email account, or calling URL.
Abelard Consulting uses a third-party search engine to provide users with the ability to find particular topics on the site. The third-party provider supplies Abelard Consulting with reports on the terms users have searched for. Again, this service does not enable Abelard Consulting to match a particular search with any particular person, email account, or calling URL.
Hence, in general, no attempt is made to identify users or their browsing activities. The one exception is where, in the event of a lawful investigation, a law-enforcement agency exercises a warrant to inspect visitor logs or search reports.
Any CV sent to us will be treated with strictest confidentiality. It will only ever be forwarded to those of our clients who are seeking to recruit a writer, and only after we have got the approval of the applicant to do so in each particular instance.
The Abelard Consulting web site does not write cookies to the hard drives of visitors to its web site.
Abelard Consulting takes all reasonable security measures to protect personal information from loss, unauthorised access, destruction, misuse, modification or disclosure. As far as permissible under law, Abelard Consulting accepts no responsibility for the unauthorised access to personal information held by Abelard Consulting gathered from its web site.
The pages of this site that request personal information — such as an email address — are controlled by encryption software provided by SSL-certificate provider Sectigo. Clicking on the graphic immediately below provides information from Sectigo regarding the currency of our encryption certificate. A locked padlock in the address bar of your browser is another indication that any data leaving this web site will be encrypted.
Encryption entails converting information into a code that cannot be broken by anyone who might be capable of interfering with the transmission of information from your computer to Abelard Consulting and vice versa.
While Abelard Consulting has endeavoured to ensure that all information provided on the Abelard Consulting web site is accurate and up to date, it takes no responsibility for any error or omission relating to this information. To the maximum extent permitted by law, Abelard Consulting will not be liable for any cost, loss or damage suffered by you through your use of its web site or Abelard Consulting's failure to provide access to that web site or to updated information.
