How we use your information
This privacy notice tells you what to expect when McConnon International collects personal information.
It applies to information we collect about:
- visitors to our websites;
- people who contact us via social media
- people who use our services
- people who notify under the Data Protection Act;
- job applicants and our current and former employees.
Visitors to our websites
When someone visits www.anevenbetterplacetowork.com we use a third-party service, Google Analyticsto collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
We use anonymous session cookies (short-term cookies that disappear when you close your browser) to help you navigate the website and make the most of the features. If you log into the website, application or a course as a registered user, your session cookie will also contain your user ID so that we can check which services you are allowed to access.
Should users wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this website onto their computer’s hard drive, they should take necessary steps within their web browser’s security settings to block all cookies from this website and its external serving.
Security and performance
McConnon International uses a third-party service to help maintain the security and performance of the McConnon International website. To deliver this service it processes the IP addresses of visitors to the McConnon International website. This can be used to identify the owner of an IP address; however, this is retrieved from publicly available information.
People who contact us via social media
We use a third-party provider, Buffer to manage our social media interactions.
If you send us a private or direct message via social media the message will be stored by Buffer for three months. It will not be shared with any other organisations.
People who call us
When you call McConnon International, we collect Calling Line Identification (CLI) information. We use this information to help improve its efficiency and effectiveness.
People who email us
We use Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt and protect email traffic in line with government guidance. If your email service does not support TLS, you should be aware that any emails we send or receive may not be protected in transit.
People who make a complaint to us
We will only use the personal information we collect to process the complaint and to check on the level of service we provide.
We usually have to disclose the complainant’s identity to whoever the complaint is about. This is inevitable where, for example, the accuracy of a person’s record is in dispute. If a complainant doesn’t want information identifying them to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis.
Information relating to a complaint will be retained for two years from closure. It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted according to the ‘need to know’ principle.
Similarly, where enquiries are submitted to us we will only use the information supplied to us to deal with the enquiry and any subsequent issues and to check on the level of service we provide.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 and in compliance with articles 12, 13 and 14 of the GDPR which outline the requirements on giving privacy information to data subjects, you have rights as an individual which you can exercise in relation to the information we hold about you.

We would also welcome any suggestions for improving our procedures.
This privacy notice was drafted with brevity and clarity in mind. It does not provide exhaustive detail of all aspects of McConnon International collection and use of personal information.

Access to personal information
McConnon International tries to be as open as it can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act 1998. If we do hold information about you we will:
give you a description of it;
tell you why we are holding it;
tell you who it could be disclosed to; and
let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.
