We may collect and process the following data about you:
Information that you provide by filling in forms on our site www.dependo.com. This includes information provided when subscribing to our newsletter, posting material or requesting further services.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence together with your name, address and phone number.
We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
What we do with the information we collect
We use information held about you in the following ways:
To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
To improve our products and services.
To provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you.
To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.
To notify you about changes to our service.
We may also use your data to provide you with information about goods and services which may be of interest to you and we may contact you about these by post or telephone.
If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you.
If you do not want us to use your data in this way please send an email with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure third party servers.
Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site and stored on our third party servers; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Your consent and rights of access
If any data or information we hold about you is inaccurate or out of date then please let us know and this will be corrected immediately.
You can change your mind or remove or add your consent at any time and you can be removed from our database. Please note that this will not delete information held about you on other third party databases or information which we are required to hold for legal or regulatory purposes.
You can contact us through the information available on our website for any queries.
In this section you will find information on what cookies may be set when you visit our website and how to reject or delete those cookies.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are provided on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example your computer or mobile phone. This information consists of small files known as cookies and they cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve our services for you through, for example:
1. Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to provide the same information several times during one task.
2. Recognising that you may already have provided a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested.
3. Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they’re fast.
