Protecting your privacy is important to us. We hope the following statement will help you understand how Ridgeway collects, uses and safeguards the personal information you provide to us on our site.
The Data Protection Act: Under the Data Protection Act, we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We use appropriate technologies to safeguard your data, and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it. We do not pass on your details to any third party or send you subsequent communications unless you give us permission to do so.
How do we use your personal details? We only use contact details you provide us with to respond to an enquiry or to fulfil an order.
What information do we collect? When you complete one of our enquiry or feedback forms we collect information such as your name and email address.
We also use Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use the site, for example how long a visitor stays on one page; or how many visitors at a given time are new or returning visitors. This information is used only to assist us in improving the layout of the site.
In the UK, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is closely monitoring sites to make sure that they comply with this new legislation, so there will be no avoiding the regulations.
You can of course still change how cookies are stored on your machine by clicking on the ‘Tools’ menu in your internet browser, but you may find that the new law means your concerns about privacy and your personal data have been addressed.
Policy effective from: April 2008.
Changes to this policy: If for any reason this policy needs to be updated the new details will be posted on this page.
