This statement outlines the information The SWOT Team will collect from the website and how we will use that information. This statement also lets you know what to do if you want us to remove personal information about you collected or stored during previous visits to the website.

How we collect and use personal information

We follow strict security procedures in the collection, storage and disclosure of the information you have given us to prevent unauthorised access and misuse, as required by the UK Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998.

We do not collect any personally identifying information from you unless you expressly consent to the terms and conditions of this statement when you submit such information via the website.

If you do not want us to collect any personally identifiable information from you, please do not provide us with any such information. We gather non-specific information on the numbers of visitors to certain areas of our website without asking for your consent to do so.

Equality & Diversity Policy

The SWOT Team is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst our workforce. Our aim is that our workforce and clients will be truly representative of all sections of society and each employee and client feels respected and able to give of their best.

To that end the purpose of this policy is to provide equality and fairness for all in our employment and with whom we conduct business and not to discriminate on grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.

All employees (whether part-time, full-time or temporary) and clients will be treated fairly and with respect. Selection for employment, promotion, training or any other benefit will be on the basis of aptitude and ability. All employees will be helped and encouraged to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be utilised to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.

Our commitment:

  • To create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all our staff and clients are recognised and valued.
  • Every employee is entitled to a working environment that promotes dignity and respect to all. No form of intimidation, bullying or harassment will be tolerated.
  • Training, development and progression opportunities are available to all staff.
  • Equality in the workplace is good management practice and makes sound business sense.
  • We will review all our employment practices and procedures to ensure fairness.
  • Breaches of our equality policy will be regarded as misconduct and could lead to disciplinary proceedings.
  • This policy is fully supported by senior management and has been agreed with all employees.
  • The policy will be monitored and reviewed annually.
