    2.2 Cookies

    In common with standard industry practice, WorkCast uses cookies to track site usage. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is placed on the hard disk of your computer by a Web page server, enabling the Web server to identify your web browser and passively track its activities on that website. A cookie does not reveal any personally identifiable information that you have not otherwise disclosed. Cookies do not contain any executable code and cannot be used for infecting your computer with a virus. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies but usually provide the option of configuring your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent. You can change your settings in the preferences or options menu of your browser. If you choose to decline cookies, certain features of our Services may not be available to you.

    2.3 Web Beacons

    Web beacons, sometimes called single-pixel GIFs, are small electronic image files that we may place on WorkCast.net or WorkCast.co.uk Web pages and within certain emails. Combined with cookies, Web beacons allow us to count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page and the number of times those pages are displayed. We can also use Web beacons to let us know how many people opened certain types of email. Information we may collect using Web beacons will be in aggregate form only and will not contain your personal information. Third party advertisers may use Web beacons in their advertisements on WorkCast websites. This enables us to compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns. We do not allow Web beacons on our websites to be used by third parties to collect or access your personal information.

    4. We believe that it is necessary to disclose such information to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable government request, to enforce our General User Agreement and investigate violations thereof, to prevent, detect and address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect against harm to the rights and property of WorkCast and its users as required or permitted by law.

You can close your account in accordance with our General User Agreement. If you close your account, we may retain your personal information but only for the purposes of preventing fraud or future abuse, or if required by law.
