The following statement explains our policy regarding the personal information we may collect about you during the normal and usual course of running this, and any site reliant on cookies.

1. Introduction

This policy covers the Kings Heath Floral Trail, the Kings Heath Centre Partnership and siblings (which from now we shall call ''KHFT") use of personal information that KHFT collects when you use http://www.kingsheathfloraltrail.com and any of its associated websites and siblings. The policy also gives you information about cookies; KHFT and third parties' use of cookies; and how you may reject such cookies.

From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website. Such services include newsletters, competitions, live chats, message boards and KHFT membership.

By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable us at KHFT and our service providers to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information the KHFT will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.

2. Visitor Information

During the course of any visit to KHFT, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a 'cookie', are downloaded to your computer. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our gardening pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight gardening information on your second and subsequent visits.

We gather non-personal information regarding the visitors to our website by using cookies, log file data and code which is embedded on our website through two software programs resident on our server namely; AWSTATS and WEBALIZER. KHFT uses this type of information, as with that obtained from other cookies used on the site, to help it improve the services to its users. If you wish to reject cookies just follow the steps outlined in Section 7 of this privacy notice. If you wish to opt out entirely from the cookie process then please write to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it detailing your exact requirements.

3. 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 personalised services cannot then be provided to that user user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the KHFT 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 KHFT anonymously until such time as you wish to register for KHFT services. For further information on cookies please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org.

4. Use and storage of your personal information

When you supply any personal information to us at KHFT (e.g. for message board membership, newsletters or otherwise) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We will endeavour to collect the information fairly, that is, we try to explain how we will use it.

In general, any information you provide to KHFT will only be used within

KHFT and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to KHFT or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on KHFT, the KHFT can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. 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 behaviour.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met, or, in the case of KHFT membership you no longer wish to continue your registration as a KHFT member. For safety reasons, however, the KHFT may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of KHFT Community services such as the Fireboard Messageboard for a period of six months. Where personal information is held for people who are not yet registered but have taken part in other KHFT services (e.g. horticultural surveys), 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 a KHFT site that your information may be used to allow the KHFT to contact you for "administration purposes", this means that the KHFT 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. We will not contact you for promotional purposes, such as notifying you of improvements to the service or new services on KHFT unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information.

5. Access to your personal information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information the KHFT holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We charge £10 for information requests.)

Please address requests to the Admin Team,  (Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  where (at) = @ and no spaces used).

6. Users 16 and under

If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to the KHFTs website. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information and KHFT cannot be helld responsible for those who are dishonest about their age. However, KHFT is a family oriented site and we will do our utmost to protect and defend all users from predatory and illegal practices. If KHFT finds out that users are using this site to groom and court the friendship of other users below the age of consent by pretending to be of a different age, persona or otherwise, then KHFT reserves the right to use the information provided through systems outlined by passing it to authorative bodies like the Police, UK Home Office, anti-paedophile agencies or otherwise.
