Security precautions

When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear in the browser's address bar. We make our best effort to ensure your information is secure on our systems. Where we have given (or you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping it confidential.

Cookie usage

The ENUF website uses  'cookies' - small files containing information sent by an organisation to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow the website to recognise you when you visit. They collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual. In the main we use these to help us to monitor our website usage and, ultimately, improve our website.

It is possible to switch off cookies by setting your browser preferences. Although unlikely, turning off cookies may result in a loss of functionality when using our website.

Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This privacy policy applies only to our website. Please read the privacy statements of the other websites you visit. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even when accessed via links from our website.

Additionally, if you visited our website via a link from a third party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check their privacy policy.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under‚ please get your parent/guardian's permission before providing us with personal information.

Transferral of information outside of Europe

As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.

If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.
