1. Online Privacy Practices
Your right to privacy is important to us. We are keen to strike a fair balance between your personal privacy and ensuring you obtain full value from the internet and other products and services we may be able to market to you.
We are fully registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and ensure we comply with all protection the Act affords to you. Further information on the Act is on the internet at http://www.ico.gov.uk/.
In some areas of our website, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to enhance your site visit or reply to you after your visit. This would include where you subscribe to any online newsletters or provide feedback to us through a contact form or when you complete any on line survey we may offer from time to time. When you do so we ask you to give us your name, e-mail address and other personal information that will be needed to supply the services to you. In relation to any regular “e-contact” you can ‘unsubscribe’ at any time. We (and/or carefully selected others) may use (and you consent to the use of) your personal data for future e-mail mailings, support, notification of new products or new versions, general correspondence regarding the products and correspondence which may relate to you. If you would rather not receive future marketing e-mails from us please inform us by e-mail at email@example.com.
The information you provide will be kept confidential and will be used only to support your customer relationship with us. We do not disclose or sell your information outside our corporate group except if we sell the whole or part of our business or as set out in this Policy.
3. Trading from our Website
Making sure you can buy safely on line is a priority for us and we have made strenuous efforts to ensure that Store security is one of our highest priorities and we have devoted a great deal of effort to ensure that our online security measures help to safeguard your information. We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of:
- Potentially sensitive information such as your name and address
- Critically-sensitive information like your credit card number
If concerned only about the privacy of your credit card information, we encourage you to submit your order electronically without a credit card number and a sales representative will contact you to obtain this information.
We hope that once you understand the measures we take to help ensure secure transactions and privacy, and the steps you can take yourself, you will be as happy about the safety of your online transaction and order information as we are.
We have no desire to infringe your privacy while using our site and we will never provide your personal information to anyone else except if we sell our business in whole or in part or if we consider that they may have products or services that are of importance or likely use to you.
