Log information

When you visit our websites, Peabody collects certain information (the same information that most websites log when they are accessed). This information, contained in the “header” of your request to access a Peabody web page, usually includes the browser type you used, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and the date and time of day.

Peabody needs this information to help us provide our services to you. For example, Peabody would need to validate your identity in order to maintain the security of your account.

Peabody also needs to know what Internet Protocol address your query came from so Peabody can send the appropriate pages back to you. In addition, Peabody logs this information for internal review purposes. For example, this log information helps us determine how well our services are working so Peabody can continually improve the quality of its web sites.

The log information is also important for security, audit, quality improvement and other internal processes.

Updating your information

You can change your personal information at any time, by accessing your account. You can terminate your account at anytime by requesting this from our web team.

Peabody typically deactivates accounts within five business days of such requests. You should be aware, however, that residual copies of information may remain stored on Peabody's systems even after the deletion of information or the termination of your account.

Third parties and your information

Peabody will never disclose your personal information unless Peabody believes Peabody is required to do so by law or believes in good faith that such access, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to

  • satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request
  • enforce any applicable Terms of Use, including investigation of potential violations thereof
  • detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues,
  • respond to user support requests
  • protect the rights, property or safety of Peabody, users of our services and the public

You acknowledge and agree that some of the data that Peabody processes may amount to sensitive personal data under the Act. Your continued use of the website amounts to agreement that Peabody may process such data. Peabody, its subcontractors and agents will apply appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent the unauthorised processing of personal data and protect against accidental loss of or damage to personal data.

How does Peabody safeguard your information?

Peabody pays close attention to security. First, Peabody focuses significant time and resources to ensure that user accounts and information are not misused by Peabody employees. A limited set of employees are authorised to access user accounts; they are educated about the importance of maintaining user privacy and their access to user accounts is recorded. Employees are also contractually required to access accounts and log data only for quality, security, audit and other internal purposes.

Second, Peabody implements technology and procedures to try to make sure that external parties cannot access or modify users’ personal information on our servers. These technologies and procedures generally include industry standard methods and may include our own proprietary methods where appropriate.

Peabody hopes you will enjoy using our websites.
