Cookie & Privacy Policy

Arch understands that privacy is a concern of its users and we, therefore, take care over any information gathered through our website. We do, like many other sites, use ‘cookies’ to help us gather data; this pages provides more information on the type of information we collect, what it is used for, and how you can make any changes.

What information do we gather?

We gather personal information from individual applicants via our application form on this website. We hold this data on our own secure servers and is only used for the purposes of evaluating the applicant for the role.  It is kept entirely confidential.  From time to time we aggregate the information anonymously in order to analyse our recruitment patterns. We do not use the data for any other purpose and we do not make it available to any other organisation.  We also gather contact details for subscribers to our email newsletter – again, this data is held securely, is kept entirely confidential and is not used for any other purpose or shared with any other organisation.

We also gather some information through the use of ‘cookies’ and this is detailed below. Gathered information may be kept indefinitely as administrative and research material but we do not make any efforts to extrapolate personal or individual data from this.

What is a ‘cookie’?

Cookies are small text files a website places on your computer when you first visit. There are several types of cookies that help websites improve your customer experience by remembering relevant information – for example, a shopping site will use cookies to ensure your shopping basket ‘remembers’ the items you have added.

The only type of cookie Arch uses are ‘anonymous analytical cookies’, which are placed by Google Analytics.

These cookies are completely safe and secure and will never contain any sensitive or personal information.

Why do we use cookies?

Google Analytics is the software package we use to track visitor usage of our site, including overall numbers and user journeys. This information allows us to understand the composite interests of our users and regularly adapt and improve our site to meet their needs.

Can I turn them off?

Yes, if you would like to disable Google Analytics from placing a cooking file on your computer, you can follow the instructions here, on Google’s site. Archapprentices.co.uk will still work and you will be able to access all of the information within the site. However, this will have an impact on our ability to understand how our site is accessed by our visitors, and therefore impact our ability to improve how we develop what we offer our visitors to the site.

Sharing Data

We will not share  this anonymous data with other organisations outside of our own regional offices and strategic partners; the purpose of sharing information is only to improve our service delivery and this website.

Links to Other Sites

This privacy statement applies only to information collected by archapprentices.co.uk.

Please be aware that Arch takes no responsibility for the privacy practices of other websites that are not owned or controlled by Arch but may be linked to from our website. If you are concerned with Privacy issues arising from these linked websites, we encourage you to be aware when you leaving our web domain and to read the privacy statements of each website that you visit.

Changes in this Privacy Statement

If we decide, in the future, to change our policy on either gathering or analyzing data, we undertake to reflect this in the privacy statement of this website and any other part of this website we deem appropriate.

We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.
