Our website address is: https://www.morscales.org
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Registering on this website will give you access to the MORS tools, scoring instructions and guidance on use. It will also give you access to the forum, which is a place where you can post comments, queries and discussion points about MORS. Postings on the forum are restricted to registered users of this website.
The information that you provide for registration is treated as personal and confidential. It will not be shared with anyone other than the website host and will only be used to produce aggregate data about the extent and nature of use of the MORS tools.
The information we collect and store is:
- Email Address
- First and Last Name
- Reason for Accessing
- Privacy and Terms Agreement
- Date and Time of User Registration
- Dates and Times of User Logins
- User's IP address
When registered users leave comments on the forum we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you register on this site we save your name and email address in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article in the forum, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
We do not share any identifiable information with any third party with the exception of the website host.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have registered on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
How we protect your data
All data is stored securely on our hosting providers server in the UK. Passwords are stored in an encrypted format and cannot be read, even by administrators. Access to all data is strictly limited to administrators of the website.
