Our Privacy Statement contains the following important information regarding your use of the Capon & Hubert web site:  

Collection of your personal information

When you provide us with your personal information via the Capon & Hubert web site, we will inform you of how the information will be used. We value your trust in the Capon & Hubert web site. In all cases, your information will be held in strict confidence. The types of personal information that we collect from you will depend on how you use the Capon & Hubert web site.

Whenever a page is requested from our web server, Capon & Hubert records the time, date and URL of the request, along with information on the browser software that is being used. We also anonymously track the pattern of visitor usage across the Capon & Hubert web site. Capon & Hubert will do this by issuing an anonymous user ID. This anonymous ID uses a feature in your web browser called a Cookie. This cookie identifies and recognises the computer (but not the person using the computer) when you visit Capon & Hubert web sites. Cookies are pieces of information that a website can transfer to an individual’s computer hard drive for record keeping. Cookies can make using Capon & Hubert easier by storing information about your preferences on a particular website. This will enable you to take full advantage of the services that Capon & Hubert offers.

The use of cookies is an industry standard and you’ll find most major websites use them. Most Internet browsers are pre-set to accept cookies. If you prefer not to receive cookies, you can adjust your Internet browser to disable cookies or to warn you when cookies are being used.

We will not collect any personal information from you revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or details of health, disability or sexual activity or orientation. Exceptions to this include:

  • where you have given express consent to Capon & Hubert to do so;
  • where there are reasonable grounds to believe that disclosure is necessary to prevent a threat to life or health;
  • the use is authorised by law or reasonably necessary to enforce the law;
  • or when the information is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim.

How we use your personal information

Recording usage patterns helps us to identify the areas of our site that are popular and those that are not. By using cookies, users can specify their unique preferences. Capon & Hubert may aggregate the data that is gathered when you use Capon & Hubert for analysis purposes. Personally identifiable characteristics are removed and the user remains anonymous, unless you have given prior specific consent for Capon & Hubert to recognise your usage. Additional data provided to us may be used to examine Internet trends and demographics to help Capon & Hubert offer you improved online products and services. We may use this personal information or data for a purpose other than these purposes (specified above) if :

  • you would reasonably expect us to use the personal information for that other purpose; and
  • that other purpose is related to these purposes (specified above). For example, sending you emails providing essential information.

Capon & Hubert will only send emails to you if you have elected to receive such emails or if they are in response to an email we have received from you. If we wish to use any of this personal information, information or data for any purpose other than those specified above, we will not do so unless we have your express consent to do so. Exceptions to this include:

  • where there are reasonable grounds to believe that disclosure is necessary to prevent a threat to life or health;
  • where Capon & Hubert suspects that unlawful activity is or has been engaged in and uses the personal information, information or data to investigate the suspected unlawful activity;
  • or the use is authorised by law or reasonably necessary to enforce the law.

These uses may include where Capon & Hubert is required to provide information in response to subpoenas or warrants or other legal processes.

Disclosure of your information

The information we collect from you is strictly confidential. Capon & Hubert will not reveal, disclose, sell, distribute, rent, licence, share or pass that information on to any third parties.

Security of your information

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that all information we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete, up-to-date and stored in a secure environment accessed only by authorised persons. Transmissions sent to or from Capon & Hubert may be routinely monitored for quality control and systems administration.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from our online products or services. These activities are conducted at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security.

What else you should know about privacy

Remember to close your browser when you have finished your user session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. You as an individual are responsible for the security of and access to your own computer.

Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information over the Internet (for example: in discussion forums, via email, or in chat sites) that this information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information in publicly accessible online forums, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your username and passwords and any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are using the Internet and Capon & Hubert.
