We obtain information about you when you visit our website and/or contact us to make an enquiry about products and services.


What type of information is collected from you?

The personal information we collect might include your title, name, address, company name, telephone number, email address, IP address and information regarding what pages are accessed and when. These details will be held on our system until such time as we receive a request from an individual to remove this data.


How is your information used?

We may use your information to:


We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations (for example financial transactions). We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.


Who has access to your information?

We will not sell or rent your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.


Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf: We may pass your information to our third party service providers and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process specialist servicing or repairs that need to be sent to manufacturers).


However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the required service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure.


Please be assured that we will not release any of your information to any third parties for them to use for their own direct purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.


Third Party Product Providers we work in association with: We work closely with a range of third party product manufacturers to bring you a range of quality and reliable products and services designed to meet the needs of those using instruments in health and safety, occupational hygiene and environmental monitoring applications.


When you enquire about or purchase one or more of these products and, for example, register your product with the manufacturer for warranty purposes, the relevant third party product manufacturer may use your details to provide you with relevant product information and carry out their obligations arising from any contracts you have entered into with them. In some cases, they will be acting as a data controller of your information and therefore we advise you to read their Privacy Policy. These third party product providers may share your information with us which we will use in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


We do not currently offer the option to purchase products online, however any offline payment processing is handled by the secure payments system provided by WorldPay, who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any further questions or would like more details regarding secure transactions, please contact us.


We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or re-organisation, or if we're under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our supporters and customers. In any such situation, we will ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it's treated securely.


Our website traffic is protected and fully encrypted via HTTPS/SSL with secure socket layer technology as indicated by the padlock/lock symbol which should appear within popular web browsers such as Chrome and Internet Explorer.


Other information details (such as email communications) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.


While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot 100% guarantee the security of information and you should consider this before you give it to us.


Should you choose to supply us with personal details, you do so at your own risk.


You have the option of sending any enquiries and/or purchases orders over the phone, by fax or by post if you prefer, although none of these services should be regarded as secure either.


Tel: 01480 496 108, Fax: 01480 496 009, or post to Glove Box Technology Limited, Unit 6 Brunel Court, Burrel Road, St Ives, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. PE27 3LW.


Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.


Profiling

We may analyse your personal information and, for example, your order history with us, to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you, if you have given us permission to do so. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. These sources may include, for example, your company web site or professional social media accounts such as LinkedIn. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.


Use of 'Cookies'

Unlike the majority of websites, the Glove Box Technology Limited websites do not use cookies.


'Cookies' are small data files that a web site can transfer to a visitor's hard drive to keep records of the visits to that site. A cookie contains information such as your username and password for the site that helps to recognise the pages you have visited and improve future visits, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is the information that you provide yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other sites. Information stored in cookies may be encrypted, however, your credit card details are not stored in cookies. If you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your web browser (i.e. Microsoft Internet Explorer or Google Chrome) to warn you before accepting cookies or you can refuse cookies altogether by turning them off completely in your web browser. However, access to some secure areas may require the use of cookies, where you must enable cookies that get back to the originating server. You can still freely access the features on our web site without accepting cookies.


Website visitor tracking

Our websites do not actively employ any website monitoring services.


However, like the majority of website servers some visitor data is automatically logged (such as visitors IP addresses, time & date information, web page requests, error messages, etc.). The information collected does not include bank details or any sensitive personal data. Server logs from our website are for Glove Box Technology Limited internal use only, and are used primarily to manage website traffic, trace any system issues and to improve our website usability.


Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This privacy policy applies only to our website, so we encourage you to read the privacy statements on other websites if you choose to visit them. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from our website.


In addition, if you linked to our website from a third-party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third-party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third-party site.


Under 18s

We are a B2B company and the nature of our business means we tend to only deal with adults aged 18 or over, however we are still concerned about protecting the privacy of those aged under 18. If you are aged under 18, we ask that a parent/guardian who is 18 or over supervises any interaction on your behalf if, for example, you are making a technical enquiry for a school or college project.


Transferring your information outside of Europe

As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union ("EU"). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are located in a country outside of the EU for any period of time, or if you use our services while you are outside the EU. Countries outside the EU may not have similar data protection laws to the UK.


Review of this Policy

We keep this Policy under regular review. This Policy was last updated in June 2018.
