Centiq’s websites and online services may use “cookies”. Cookies enable you to personalise your experience on our sites, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and give us insights into user behaviour so we can improve our communications, products and services.
If you want to disable cookies on your PC go to your internet options, go to privacy and choose to block cookies.
The cookies used on our websites have been categorised based on the guidelines found in the ICC UK Cookie guide. We use the following categories on our websites and other online services:
These cookies are essential to enable you to browse around our websites and use their features. Without these cookies, services like shopping baskets and e-billing cannot be provided.
These cookies collect information about how you use our websites — for instance, which pages you go to most. This data may be used to help optimise our websites and make them easier for you to navigate. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
These cookies allow our websites to remember choices you make while browsing. For instance, we may store your geographic location in a cookie to ensure that we show you our website localised for your area. We may also remember preferences such as text size, fonts and other customisable site elements. They may also be used to keep track of what featured products or videos have been viewed to avoid repetition. The information these cookies collect will not personally identify you, and they cannot track your browsing activity on non-Centiq websites.
When you supply any personal information to us (e.g. when you register with us) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use such data. We must collect the information fairly – we must explain how we will use it. You will see this information presented on all pages which require you to provide such data. Some information is collected by us automatically and without other notification, such as your Internet (IP) address and information from our cookies. In brief, any information you provide to us will only be used within the website and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged by law to do so, or if you agree to such disclosure.
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on the website, or make use of our services to do so to any other party, we can use whatever information that is available about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer or Internet provider and/or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
In principle, we will hold your personal information on our systems indefinitely once you have registered on the website. If you want this information removing you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to remove it on your behalf. We will then use your registered email address to confirm the removal process.
The information you provide to us may be used to:
In addition, if you submit comments, photographs, videos, music, text or other content, it may be published online or offline (including on-air, on a CD or DVD, through wireless distribution, and transmission of soft copies, or any other media or format currently existing or hereafter developed), and we may publish your name, voice, likeness and other personal information in connection with publishing the content or a portion of the content, and we may use the content and any excerpt from the content in connection with advertising, marketing, publicity and promotional activities.
The only part of your personal information automatically made available to other users of the website is your chosen user name, which will appear whenever you make a posting in the forums (message boards) or comment on a blog posting.
