Personal data we collect and how we use it

General

We automatically record information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, country, and the pages you request.  We use this information to analyse our site's usage in order to improve navigation and offer more popular content.

We collect personal information (typically your name and email address as well as details of the organisation you work for) when you complete our application/registration and quotation forms, when you request information from us (for example a service request), when you complete an online marketing survey, when you enter promotions, and when we meet you or make contact with you.

We use this to update our database so we can contact you when we believe we have goods, services or information that will be of interest to you. We also use it to manage your organisation’s account with us and to supply goods and services you have requested from us.

Sharing personal data

We do not rent or sell or provide your personal data to any other person except as set out below or except as obliged by law or by the order of any competent body.

Where we outsource any task (e.g. telesales and mail shots), we oblige the service provider to use your personal data only in accordance with our specific instructions.  

We may provide your personal data to anyone who buys or offers to buy our business or business assets.

Any member of the OGT Group may pass your personal data to any other member of the OGT group.

Cookies

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
  • Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
  • Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast
