This site is operated by OKO DIGITAL LTD. At OKO we’re big advocates of online privacy and generally treating the users of our websites in a decent way. This document addresses some common questions about security, confidentiality and data protection and lays out how and why we use your information. If you have questions about any related issue please contact: The Data Protection Officer: OKO DIGITAL, The Cake Shed, Manor Farm, Manor Road, Hayling Island, Hampshire, PO11 0QW Or contact us online at sitons
How do we collect information?
We only collect personal information when you submit it to us: For instance when you fill out the contact form. We may also be party to information about you from third parties: For instance if a friend of yours recommends out site to you. In these cases we do not retain this information (as we think that wouldn’t be fair!). We also collect non-personal information through automated means, for instance web analytics. More on that in a bit.
What information do we collect?
The most common pieces of personal information that we collect are names and email addresses. However other contact details or personal information, such as date of birth, might be requested in some situations.
How do we use this information?
We will only use your personal information for:
- The purpose that you gave it to us (ie if you are signing up to a newsletter we will use your details to send you that. If you are entering a competition we will use your details to administer that).
- Other purposes that you explicitly give us permission for (for instance when you enter a competition we might ask if we can sign you up for a newsletter. If you answer Yes we’ll use your details for that as well).
Sharing personal information
We will only share your personal information with outside agencies if we need to do that in order to carry out the purpose for which you provided that information. For example: We might use a trusted third party to deliver email newsletters, which would require us to provide those details to the company who send the mail. In these cases we only work with companies who we believe will uphold our own strict privacy standards. We won’t ever sell your personal information to anyone. We hate that!
Protecting your personal information
The main way we protect your personal information is by not collecting personal information that we don’t need! Additionally we use secure methods (such as password encryption) to protect your details and limit access to this data. We also strive to keep information accurate and update to date and to only keep personal information as long as is necessary for the purpose that it was provided.
By providing up with personal data you are agreeing to how we use it as described above. You also consent to us transferring your information to countries or jurisdictions which do not provide the same level of data protection as the UK, if necessary for the above purposes. We prefer not to, but unfortunately some vital services are run from outside the UK. However we still will only use services that we believe will maintain the highest standards of privacy.
It’s your data! If you change your mind about how we can use it then please let us know.
Right of access
You have the right to ask for a copy of the information that we hold about you. We may charge a small fee for this. You may also ask for any inaccuracies to be amended.
