Attain's Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains how we use your information to provide any of the services available from Attain. We review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis.

How we use your information

We take our privacy obligations very seriously. The purpose of this document is to outline the type of information Attain holds and how we use any information provided to us.

Attain is a publisher and provider of news and information websites owned and operated by Chapel Studios Ltd, a company incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 4350755 whose principal place of business is at Oxford Centre for Innovation, New Road, Oxford, OX1 1BY.

By using Attain's websites or by purchasing any services from us, including advertising, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy which forms part of our Terms and Conditions.

Your personal information

In order to provide some of our services, we require your name, email address and basic contact details, including your telephone number. We collect this when you register for the service, or if you contact us regarding advertising or make an enquiry to us regarding any service provided by Attain. We require this information in order to provide you with information about our services. We only hold these details for this purpose and you can request to stop receiving communications from Attain at any time.

For example, for people who subscribe to our digital services, we need to hold their name and email address, plus role and organisation. We only hold these details for this purpose and you can request to cancel or unsubscribe from any digital services subscription you receive from Attain at any time.

We do store statistics from our digital services, as part of the service offered by our email newsletter provider, such as the number of emails delivered, if they are opened and any clicks, using internet technologies such as pixels and web beacons. Together, this helps us monitor performance and improve our digital services. We do not share this information outside of Attain.

What we collect

When you visit Attain's websites, we collect non-personally identifiable information and standard internet log data. We do this in order to perform analysis on the use of Attain's websites and to compile statistics. Where we do need to collect personally identifiable information, we clearly highlight this and explain how it will be used.

Some data processing is carried out using services which are located outside the UK and/or EEA. By using Attain's services, and providing data to us, you accept that this data may be transferred outside of the EEA for data processing and storage purposes but, where this happens, this will be carried out on the basis of appropriate safeguards (such as the provision of Standard Contractual Clauses or Binding Corporate Rules) being in place or in accordance with Data Protection Laws.
