The administration and maintenance of the Edge Conference website is provided by Ali Montgomery Designs on behalf of The City of Edinburgh Council. The City of Edinburgh Council is committed to protecting your privacy when you visit the EDGE Conference website. Under the Data Protection Act, we must safeguard the information which we collect from you. When you visit the site, you do not have to give us any information about yourself.
All personal information (regarding bookings & payments) is taken from the registration company, via the “Book Now” button and their terms & conditions are clearly visible on their website.
If you are a user with general public and anonymous access, the website does not store or capture personal information, but simply logs the user’s IP address which is automatically recognised by the web server. We maintain site logs which include the IP address details of all machines accessing our pages. This enables us to monitor website usage to see;
- Which pages are the most popular
- Which pages are seldom or never visited
- And to give us an idea of how extensively the website is used
- Any IP information is treated as strictly confidential and is not published or divulged to any third party.
The system will record your e-mail address and other information if volunteered to us by you. This shall be treated as proprietary and confidential and may be used for internal review.
Data Protection Act
Under the Data Protection Act 1998, we have a legal duty to protect any personal information we collect from you;
All EDGE conferences will use Personal Information only in ways that are compatible with the purpose for which it was collected or subsequently authorised by the individual. Reasonable steps will be taken to ensure that Personal Information is relevant, accurate, complete and current, to its intended use. Each year we produce a delegate list with name, job description and email address. This list is only available to attendees of the EDGE conference and only distributed on registration of attendees.
If you have any query about personal information that we may hold, please write to the system administrator – details at the bottom of this page.
You do not have to ask permission to link directly to pages hosted on this site and we actively encourage you to do so. If you do so, however, we would prefer you to inform the system administrator (details below) telling us the address and nature of the page that will be linking to the site.
We do not object to you linking directly to the information that is hosted on our site. However, we do not permit our pages to be loaded into frames on your site. The EDGE Conference website must load into the user’s entire window and no advertising should be shown.
