At Emissco we recognise that your personal privacy is an important issue and we take every effort to protect that privacy from a practical point of view, in addition to ensuring that we comply with all relevant UK & EU legislation on the matter.
By using this web site you consent to the collection and use of your personal information in accordance with this policy. Though the policy has been developed to take account of changes in Internet technology it is subject to change and any such changes will be notified on this page.
When you use the Emissco site your computer automatically accesses a small piece of code on our server (a ‘server side cookie’) which enables the web pages to be displayed correctly. This cookie is not saved on your computer and is only used for the duration of the session. Most browsers allow an option to turn off cookies, and doing this should not impact on your use of the majority of the website. However, if you are using a web browser set to high security you may experience difficulties using this facility.
What Information Is Collected?
When you register to use the website we need to know your name and email address and certain other details. We (or our agents or subcontractors) may check some of the information that you provide to us against third party databases to confirm that it is accurate. We may use this information to enable you to access the features of the website and to configure the website to provide you with the most useful information. We will store your username and password in accordance with our usual security procedures.
Credit card information given through the e-payment gateway is only retained for the purpose of the transaction and is immediately deleted following that. No permanent record of any personal information is retained when you use the e-payment gateway.
How we use this information
On occasions we carry out surveys or other promotional activities in the course of our business which are communicated to customers who have created accounts on the website. By creating an account, you consent to your contact details being used for such promotional materials by Emissco. We take care to ensure that these messages are not sent too frequently, that they are relevant to you and that you always have the facility to opt-out of receiving further messages if you wish.
We may analyse user data to decide which customers may be interested in particular promotional campaigns that we run. We may also use aggregate information (e.g. number of views of particular pages/products) and may share this aggregate data with third parties or for other commercial purposes.
Your contact data will not be shared externally without your consent other than with our marketing partner supplier that hosts our data.
We will not sell your personal information to any third party without your express consent, or in accordance with the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the business.
Because the internet infrastructure is global, the information you provide may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) which do not have as stringent data protection legislation. Should we decide to transfer data processing to a country outside the EEA we will notify registered users of this and take necessary steps to ensure the privacy of your data.
By registering with this website, you consent to your information being treated in this manner.
