About Walk 4 Life
Walk Unlimited own and manage this website, and is committed to protecting your privacy, in accordance with The Data Protection Act 1998.
We know that no one likes to give their personal information away, we have designed the site to collect as little data as possible – in fact we don’t collect enough for us or anyone else to be able to identify you.
We ask for a username and email address so that you can register. We do not ask for your name, or any other identifying information. We ask for your postcode so that we can see where you come from. You do not have to enter any other information about yourself, although you can choose to do so.
If you use the walking fitness test you will need to enter your gender, date of birth and weight. This data is only used to calculate the fitness test result.
We used the data we collected to build a summary of how the website was being used, and to report back to the Department of Health. We only reported on summary data not on individual users. Since funding stopped these reports are no longer being sent to the Department of Health.
We don’t pass the information we collect on to anyone else, unless you have said we can. If you have agreed to be contacted by Change4Life, or Walk Unlimited, you may be sent an email asking you to complete a survey at some point in the future. Apart from this we will only use your email to send you your password if you ask us to.
This site contains links to other websites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of other sites. It also contains material added by the public. If you have concerns about any of the material on the site please report them to us.
We have access to all walking routes submitted to the site . This information is accessed via a secure password protected area. We will only access these routes to monitor the functioning of the website. The route information is only accessed by the website Master account and is not passed on to any 3rd parties.
The Walk4Life site is a user generated site which means that members of the public add the content. If you see a photograph that belongs to you or your organisation that is not credited then please contact us to let us know.
We reserve the right to remove any images that we deem inappropriate.
Anyone adding images must have the right to do so - we are not responsible for copyright of images added by anyone other then ourselves. If any copyright disputes arise we will remove the disputed images.
We cannot download files from the site and return them to the author of the walk, nor does the site have the facility to allow the user to download the files themselves. Once on the site the walks can only be viewed, edited or deleted.
The user may delete, or ask for their walks or account to be deleted from the site at any point.
If you have any questions/comments about privacy please email us.
