Introduction

How we collect your information

We may retain any personal information that is received from you.  For example, this might include your name and brief details of a query or an order made by you.  However, we do not normally retain order details.  We may also retain personal information relating to you that is in the public domain.  For example, personal details which are published on a web site operated by you or in a telephone directory.

How we use your information

We will retain and use any personal information received from you in connection with the provision of our services, marketing, administration and the keeping of accounts and records relating to our business.  In particular, we retain personal information received from you in order to establish and develop an order history.  The order history records brief details of the queries and orders made by you. 

We consider that the personal information that we hold about you is adequate, relevant and not excessive in order to enable us to provide services to you, undertake marketing activities and to administer and keep accounts and records relating to our business.

As part of our customer communication program, the personal information about you that is held by us will be accessible via our customer database by certain authorised employees at our corporate headquarters and at our regional sales office in the region in which you are situated.  This is in order that we can provide you with fast and efficient customer services, sales and technical support, from whichever office you contact.

Subject to the preceding paragraph, we shall not transfer or otherwise disclose to any third party any personal information about you, unless we have your explicit consent to such transfer or disclosure or unless such transfer or disclosure is required by law or other court order.

From time to time, we may contact you to invite you to tradeshows where our products will be displayed.  If you do not wish to receive such invitations, please notify:
