Depending on the nature of the information you provide, certain legislative protections may apply to our processing of your information including the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. We will of course ensure that we comply with any applicable legislation which aims to protect your privacy.
B. What information do we collect? How do we use it?
We may ask you for certain information such as contact information, telephone numbers, fax numbers, your email address, your location and the name of your organisation. This information is stored on our databases. The databases enable SLS to collect personal information from you, to do business with you and respond to your queries.
From time to time we may wish to use the information you supply to us for the following additional purposes:
- to inform you about other products and services which we provide and which we consider may be of interest to you (which may include contacting you by telephone);
- to provide your information to other SLS companies who may wish to get in touch with you about products or services
- we (or the third parties referred to above) may contact you by email, fax, direct mail or telephone.
We will not use your information for one or more of the purposes set out above if you have indicated that you do not wish us to do so when submitting your information through the registration process to us. In addition, you can opt-out of any of these uses of data at any subsequent time by writing to the Response Administrator at Scientific Laboratory Supplies, Wilford Industrial Estate, Ruddington Lane, Wilford, Nottingham NG11 7EP or email firstname.lastname@example.org with the words "opt out" in the subject, and elect not to receive communications. We will stop using your information for these purposes as soon as it is reasonably possible to do so after we receive your request to that effect.
SLS also does research on our customer demographics, interests, and purchasing based on the information provided to us through web registration, purchasing activity and other promotional activity. From data surveys and our computer files we use software analysis tools to better understand and serve our users.
SLS is registered under the United Kingdom Data Protection Act 1998.
C. Do we share the information we receive?
We will otherwise only share your information with third parties if we have your prior consent or unless required by law, local regulators or law enforcement officers.
D. Are there any security issues?
We take the security of your data seriously. Therefore, once we receive your information, we always take steps to ensure its security on our systems and at our offices. Unfortunately no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we will strive to protect your personal information once we have received it, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the transmission of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk.
Within SLS, employees (or agents working on behalf of SLS and under confidentiality agreements) will have access to stored customer information. Access to all customer data is limited to a small number of individuals who hold responsibility for maintenance and security of the data.
