You do not have to register to access most of the BT website. However, if you provide information via the "contact us" or other interactive features, you indicate your consent to our use of your personal data in the manner described in this Policy.
If you participate in the "contact us" or other interactive features of our website, we may ask you for information such as your name, business address, contact telephone numbers and email address. We may also ask you for other information; this will be clear at the time.
We may receive personal information about you from third parties. Except in the cases where we are merely processing such information for them, we rely on third parties to obtain your consent for us to use this information.
BT may use your personal information to:
If you enter one of our competitions or promotions, we use the personal information you provide to manage the competition or promotion you have entered.
We sometimes use other companies to provide some of our services or to provide services to us. To enable them to do this, we may need to let them process your personal information. When we do so, these companies are required to act in accordance with the instructions we give them, may only do things that BT is entitled to do, and may only act on behalf of BT. We may provide information, in response to properly made requests, for the purpose of the prevention and detection of crime, and the apprehension or prosecution of offenders. We may also provide information for the purpose of safeguarding national security. We also provide information when required to do so by law, for example under a Court Order, or in response to properly made demands under powers contained in legislation.
If there is a change (or prospective change) in the ownership of BT or any of its assets, we may disclose personal information to the new (or prospective) owner. If we do so, we will require them to keep it confidential.
The time period for which we retain information varies according to the use of that information. In some cases there are legal requirements to keep data for a minimum period. Unless specific legal requirements dictate otherwise, BT will retain information no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the data were collected or for which they are further processed.
If we have information about your use of our services (such as the amount of time you spend on-line), we will mainly use this information to manage our network and for billing. However, we may also use this information for marketing BT's services. We do not disclose this information to anyone other than to our agents who process it on our behalf. Your decision on whether you want to receive details of other BT products and services made when you register for or order a service also applies to this information. Consequently, if you do not wish us to use this information for marketing purposes but during registration elected to receive details on other BT products and services, you need to select the opt-out option.
We use "cookies" to collect anonymous information from visitors to our website. A 'cookie' is a piece of information, like a tag, which some websites create with respect to your visit to the site and store on your PC (or personal computer). Our cookie stores some basic information which helps us to identify if you have visited the site before and if you receive some personalised content, or by welcoming you by name if you have supplied this in a previous visit (if using the "Remember Me" function). We may also use it to help us improve our website and the services we make available. However, as the cookie is based on your PC, we will not find it if you visit BTConferencing.com using a different PC from the one you used to registered your information.
If you are a BT customer and you want to know what personal information BT holds about you, you can obtain it by contacting the BT Help Desk. If the information we hold about you is inaccurate, please let us know and we will make the necessary amendments and confirm that these have been made.
We at BT are serious about guarding the security of your personal data and the details of any transactions you make. We take appropriate organisational and technical security measures to protect your data against unauthorised disclosure or processing. We use a secure server to store the information you give us when you register or make an order. Any information you send us on-line is securely encrypted.
Over and above what BT does to safeguard your privacy and security, there are a number of things you can do to protect yourself from Internet fraud on-line:
