Privacy policy

We promise we will never give your name, email address or other personal information to anyone else without your permission, except as required by the appropriate authorities in the pursuit of criminal investigations, legal proceedings or investigations of illegal use of British Newspapers Online’s services. As for spam, we hate it just like everyone else and we don’t do it.

If you’re a contributor and would like credit for what you’ve written but don’t want to broadcast your personal data across the Web, you’re free to use a pen-name if you wish.

Data protection issues are governed by the Data Protection Act 1998 in the United Kingdom. Whilst at this stage (10 March 2008) the company directors believe that British Expat Ltd is exempt from the requirement to notify the Information Commissioner of our activities, we have registered voluntarily.
