Internet privacy policy

All Together Better respects and protects the privacy of individuals that use this website. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for the website.

Use of personal information provided by the user: Where an individual provides personal information (for example name, address or telephone number) to All Together Better via its website for whatever purpose, it is made clear to the individual what the information collected will be used for and who it will be provided to. The information collected will only be used for the stated purpose.

All Together Better does not sell, trade, provide or rent personal information to third parties. Specific personal information will be released where All Together Better is required to do so by law, e.g. court order. Transfer of data will be done so on the express permission of the supplying individual.

All data received by All Together Better will be afforded protection, whether in a manual or electronic form in line with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 and British Standard 7799. When the data is no longer required or fit for purpose, it will be destroyed or expunged from system areas. Access to data supplied will only be used by relevant All Together Better staff; who will ensure that surreptitious viewing is prohibited to unauthorised individuals.


All Together Better does not use ‘Cookies’ for collecting personal information from the atbsunderland.org.uk site.

The following cookie types may be used by the site:

  • Session – Where the cookie expires when you leave the site
  • Permanent – Where the cookie remains on your machine for a certain period of time

Examples of permanent cookie use are our site statistics and user preferences.

*A message given to a Web browser by a Web server. The browser stores the message in a text file. The message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and possibly prepare customised Web pages for them. For example, when you enter a website using cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form providing such information as your name etc. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your Web browser, which stores it for later use. The next time you go to the same website, your browser will send the cookie to the Web server. The server can use this information to present you with custom Web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic welcome page you might see a welcome page with your name on it.

Changes to this privacy policy: All Together Better may amend this policy from time to time. If substantial changes are made to the way in which All Together Better obtains and uses your personal information the website will show prominently any announcement to this effect.
