Privacy Policy

The Construction Index Limited operates the web site www.theconstructionindex.co.uk.

Your personal information

When you register as a user of our web site you will be asked to provide certain information such as your contact details.  We will store this data and hold it on computer or otherwise.  We will use this to fulfil our contract with you.

2.1   Many IP addresses, particularly those allocated to individuals are "dynamic".  This means that each time a user connects to their internet service provider ("ISP") they are given an IP address which will be different each time.  Only the ISP, not us, can link a dynamic IP address to an individual.  Some IP addresses, particularly those allocated to a business, are static.  Static IP addresses can be linked to a particular computer which may then be linked to an individual user.

2.2   We use static IP addresses to profile those visitors to our website, who have a static IP address which possibly also enables us to identify the individual user.  This information, which is stored by us on computer, is limited to the static IP address of the user, possibly the individual user within the business who has visited our website, how many and which pages of our website have been visited and the period of time spent viewing our website.  This information is used by us to improve and develop the services we offer by enabling us to:-

      (a)   assess the volume of visits to our website;

      (b)   assess the type of visitors to our website;

      (c)   keep our clients informed (through direct contact and by a notice on our web site at the Login page) about the companies
