Some information is collected on this site automatically through our technology; other information is collected only when you choose to give it to us. Ex: when you sign up for or request more information, a specific online transaction or promotion, etc).
We at www.fommy.co.uk are totally committed to protecting your privacy. We comply with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
We collect information about you in order to process your order and to tailor your visit to our website to be as relevant to you as possible. That information will only be shared with other parties that are involved in the fulfilment of your order. We do not send random marketing emails to personal email addresses (spam).
The information we hold may include:
- Your name
- Phone number
- Email address
Other information necessary for processing your order
This data will be held in accordance with our internal security policy. If we propose to send your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) we will seek your consent first.
We will never collect sensitive information about you without your agreement. You have a right to ask for a copy of the information which we are holding on you and we will provide this for a small fee. We will delete information or correct any inaccuracies at no charge as soon as you make the request. Data will only be released to third parties (e.g. the police) on request where there is a legal requirement for us to do so.
Cookies – what they are and how we use them
Cookies are small text files that our website and sometimes emails place in your computer to ensure that your experience of our offerings is as effective as possible. They remember any options you have chosen for example and your password or particular interests. They also enable us to track visitors' usage of our site so that we can continuously improve it. There's nothing mysterious about them and they do not collect personal data.
Like pretty much all website owners we have always operated cookies and you have had the benefit of using them. EU regulations now require us to inform you of what they are and give you the option to prohibit them if you wish.
We're using the word 'cookies' here to include things like 'web beacons' and 'Flash cookies' which serve similar functions. 'Your computer' includes anything connected to the internet including laptops, office machines, tablets, mobile phones and so on.
Necessary. Without these our website will not function correctly.
Helpful – to us and to you. We monitor visitor activity on our website (without collecting any data on you) so that we can improve the site structure, page routing options and processing systems to help all visitors. These cookies also help us to guide you to pages likely to be of most interest to you.
Personal – for your benefit. These cookies remember your password and other preferences and can allow you to link onwards to watch a video or join in an online conversation.
On emails. We may use web beacons to check whether our emails are actually opened and whether any links in them are clicked on. That way we learn not to send you junk. If you choose plain text to download instead of HTML the web beacon is eliminated. And all our emails also give you a total opt-out procedure.
The above has been a simple introduction to cookies, what they are and why we use them. You can find out much more if you wish at www.ico.gov.uk
Rather than listing data on all the cookies we use or may use in the future you will almost certainly find it quicker and easier to set your web browser to control cookie usage on all the sites you visit. The ICO site shown covers all the details of how to do this. Another really good one is www.allaboutcookies.org. If you have a very old browser you may need to bring it up to date to use effective cookie controls.
Information We Gather Automatically
When you visit this website, certain non-personal identifying information is recorded automatically by the standard operation of our Internet servers in the United States. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address (a number that your Internet service provider assigns to your computer whenever you surf the Internet), may be gathered in order to facilitate our online operations and to assure an efficient online experience for you. We may also use or share this information for security purposes to generate group statistics about our user community or as required by laws of England and Wales.
We may use your IP address or other automatically recorded information in cooperation with your Internet provider to identify you if it is necessary to contact you or to bring legal action against you because of violation of "Terms and Conditions" of using this website or for causing injury or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with our company's rights or property with other users of this website or anyone else who could be harmed by your activities.
Information You Provide To Us
We may request personal and identifying information from you in a variety of contexts. For example, you may provide such data to us if you:
- Complete an online registration form (ex: various sign-up forms, registering for special offers or e-mail communications, registering for an account, or responding to a survey);
- Fill out an order form to request information;
- Register to participate in any online interactive features we may offer;
- Purchase any products or services from us or another business within our family of companies.
In such cases, the personally identifying information we request may include your name, e-mail address, mailing address and zip code, mobile phone number, other phone number(s) and, where appropriate, a valid credit card number with expiration date (collectively, "Personal Information"). In addition, we may collect other non-personally identifying information such as your date of birth, gender, country of residence, language preference, hobbies and other information regarding your interaction with our site. Of course, you never have to answer any of the questions we ask you (nor choose to take advantages of the services offered on our site), but refusal to do so may limit the products or services we can offer or provide to you.
We do not send random marketing emails to personal email addresses (spam).
We conform to the requirements of the Data Protection Act, 1998.
Your Personal Information
Broadly speaking, we use your personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and prospective customers. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our website, new services and special offers we think you may find valuable. The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under our traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our customers' personal information. As a customer, you may opt out by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, without any specific approval from you, we may develop general aggregate data (ex: data that cannot be used to identify specific individuals) about our user community that is partly based on information about you. For example, hypothetically, you might be one of 1,000,000 customers between the ages of 25 and 35. We may share such aggregate statistics with www.fommy.co.uk affiliate companies without your consent.
Legal Enforcement Purposes
We reserve the right to disclose your "Personal Information" as required by law or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against you if you are violating the "Terms and Conditions" of use for this website or may be causing injury to or interference (intentionally or unintentionally) with our company's rights or property, other users of this website or anyone else who could be harmed by your activities.
Safeguarding Your Personal Information
www.fommy.co.uk cares about the security of your "Personal Information." We follow generally accepted industry security standards to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use such "Personal Information."
We are committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998). We collect information about you for 2 reasons: firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service. We will give you the chance to refuse any marketing email from us in the future. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent. The information we hold will be accurate and up to date. You can check the information that we hold about you by emailing us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.
The personal information that we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy and the law. We may use technology to track the patterns of behaviour of visitors to our site. This can include using a "cookie" which would be stored on your browser. You can usually modify your browser to prevent this happening.
However, unfortunately, despite many advances in information security technology and procedures, no commercially deployed method of information transfer over the Internet or electronic data storage is known to be 100% secure. As a result, while we do strive to use modern and commercially reasonable means to protect your "Personal Information" we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during itstransmission or its storage in our systems.
