Your privacy is very important to us. At Digicool we maintain and follow these fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We do not subscribe to the practice of asking you for things such as your gender or income level for no apparent reason.) We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect yours and our rights.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our website.
Like most website operators, we at Digicool collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, entry and exit page, date and time of each visit, UK or overseas visit. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is for statistical analysis; to better understand how our visitors use our website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to the Digicool website choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our Insights blog to provide a name or username, and email address. Those who wish to subscribe to receive regular newsletter updates via email, we collect their names and emails.
Where you send us a message as described for example, and provide personally identifiable information such as your name, physical address, email address and or phone number, all personal information collected by Digicool is protected under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
