We will respond to your inquiries or requests by using the contact information you provide us.

3 Cookies and other information collected via technology

3.1      Cookies

Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website.  We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our website. This type of information is collected to make the website more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.  

Our website uses the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

Type of cookie Purpose
Essential Cookies These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our website and to enable you to use some of its features. For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our website and help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.
Functionality Cookies These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make when you use our website, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our website that you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our website.
Targeted and advertising Cookies These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising that is more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, and with our permission, third-party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show adverts, which we think, will be relevant to your interests while you are on third party websites.

You can disable cookies that remember your browsing habits and target advertising at you by visiting http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices. If you choose to remove targeted or advertising cookies, you will still see adverts but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to remove cookies by the companies listed at the above link, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, and so you may still receive some cookies and tailored adverts from companies that are not listed.

Social Media Cookies These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our website or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this.

 

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept Cookies from our website for any of the purposes described above, then you can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting a Cookie from the websites you visit. Consult your browser’s technical information. If you do not accept Cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the website or all functionality of the website.

If you have any questions about how to disable or modify Cookies, please let us know at the contact information provided below. Further information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.com.uk.

3.2      Log Files

We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. For our website, this information includes IP addresses, browser type, , referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.  We use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our website to our users’ needs.

For other products and services, we collect store information about the environment, settings and other key attributes to be able to resolve issues and understand usage patterns in log files.  

3.3      Pixel Tags

In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs).  Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, which are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format user can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users.  We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user.  

We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ personal information.

3.4      Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to help analyze how users use our website.  Google Analytics uses Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the website, what pages they visit, and what other websites they used prior to coming to the website. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve our website, products and services. 

You can find out more about how Google Analytics operates here: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our website by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via this link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

3.5      Do Not Track Signals

Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which your web browser communicates. We currently do not take action in response to these signals, but we may revise our Privacy Policy. 

3.6 Device Information

We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers) in order to understand customer environments to improve our products and services.

3.7 Audio and Video files

Upon request from our users, we may also collect audio and video files to help improve our products and services. We will never collect this information without your consent. 

4 Storage and deletion of your personal data

Your personal data will be retained as long as necessary to fulfill the legitimate purpose(s) for the processing and as long as required by law. We determine retention periods based on our agreement with you or on the legitimate needs of the business to deliver services to you.

5 Your rights

You have the right to request access, and in some circumstances rectification, restriction and deletion of your personal data held by us, and to receive a copy of your personal data in a structured, machine readable format. Inquiries regarding the processing of personal data and access request and requests to exercise your rights shall be directed to the point of contact provided below.

You also have the right to object to some processing, including direct marketing communications, and the right to withdraw your consent where we process your data based on the consent you provided to us. Where we process your data because we have a legitimate interest in doing so (as explained above), you also have a right to object to this. These rights may be limited in some situations – for example, where we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your data. 

Subject to certain exceptions, you also have a right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.

Where we require personal data to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then provision of such data is mandatory. If such data is not provided, then we will not be able to manage our contractual relationship or to meet obligations placed on us. In all other cases, provision of requested personal data is optional.

6 Transfer of personal data to other countries

We may store and process your data outside the EEA. The data, including personal information, that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Transfer of personal data to a third country outside of the EEA that does not provide adequate protection will only take place if appropriate safeguards are provided, e.g., by Binding Corporate Rules, entering into EU Standard Contractual Clauses or if the receiving party is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. If you have any questions relating to this, please contact us at the contact point provided below.

We may transfer aggregated anonymous data to third parties (domestic and/or foreign) for the purposes of i) improving or developing our website, products or other services and ii) for the proper functioning of our website, products or other services.

7 Information security

We take reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, including reasonable encryption and cyber security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

 

We restrict access to personal information to our employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
