Information we collect

Any information collected on our website (www.bridgingthegapchina.co.uk) (“our site“) is used only to facilitate a better and more personal experience for you. We do not sell or distribute any information about you to outside organisations.  This privacy policy discloses how we collect, protect, and use information gathered about you on our site.  Your use of our site signifies your acceptance of this policy. We hope that this disclosure will help increase your confidence in and enhance your experience on our site.

You can use our site without divulging any personally identifiable information including your email address. Our site does not collect identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis, such as when registering at our site, requesting information, or completing our online application.  If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

IP addresses

We use IP addresses to measure the amount of use of our site and diagnose problems with our server, as well as administer its contents.  Information collected via IP addresses includes page views, browser types, and referring site information and does not identify any individual.

Where we store your personal data

The information you provide may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) that do not have similar protections in place regarding your information and restrictions on its use as set out in this policy. However, we will take steps to ensure adequate protections are in place to ensure the security of your information.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.  Although we will do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted by you or to you via the internet; any transmission is at your own risk.  Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

  • to notify you about changes to our site.
