- Visitor Information: general
Information supplied by cookies can help provide you with a better online user experience.
- What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalized services cannot then be provided to that user user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the ictservicebd.com features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse ictservicebd.com anonymously until such time as you wish to register for ictservicebd.com services. For further information on cookies please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org.
- Use and storage of your personal information
When you supply any personal information to ictservicebd.com (e.g. for competitions, ictservicebd.com services or ictservicebd.com membership) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it.
In general, any information you provide to the ICT Service BD will only be used within ICT Service BD and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed only where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to ictservicebd.com or otherwise engage in any disruptive behavior on ictservicebd.com, ICT Service BD can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behavior. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behavior.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for only as long it is of practical use for running the service you signed up for. For safety reasons, however, the ICT Service BD may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of ictservicebd.com services such as the quiz-maker for a period of six months. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other ictservicebd.com services (e.g. competitions), that information will be held as long as is necessary to ensure that the service is run smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you are notified on the ictservicebd.com site that your information may be used to allow the ICT Service BD to contact you for “service administration purposes”, this means that the ICT Service BD may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance.
