When you undertake to register yourself or purchase a product on this Website we ask for your name, email address, company name, address, post code, phone number and job title. Once you register with us and sign in you are not anonymous to us. In order to tailor our subsequent communications to you and continuously improve our products and services, we may also ask you to provide us with information regarding your professional interests, experience with our products, and more detailed contact preferences.
When you visit the Website, we also collect website usage information and information about your computer and internet connection, including your computer's IP address, the type and version of browser and operating system you use, your internet domain and, if you arrived at estechnical.co.uk via a link from another website, the URL of the linking page.

Period of grace
We will endeavour to update your records as promptly as practical; however you may receive communications for a transitional period whilst we process your records.
Website usage terms
By accessing, browsing and/or using this website, you understand and agree as follows:
a) The information collected from this website could be stored indefinitely.
b) ESTechnical and its agents may use your information for a variety of purposes, including direct marketing (unless you opt out of receiving such marketing solicitations, see above) which pertains directly with our field of business and which we believe would be relevant to the customer.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.
On the ESTechnical website, cookies record information about your online preferences (login details and account settings). Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time from their browser. The last of these means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of our website's features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website (such as their name and address), their information is encrypted and is protected with encryption software.
While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, as will be the case for most of the time that a user is browsing the web.
No credit card or debit card numbers are downloaded at any time and are not held by the Company in any form. Credit card payments are made through a verified external payment processor.
Transfer of personal data overseas
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using the Internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Therefore, by browsing estechnical.co.uk and communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
This website contains links to other websites. Their inclusion cannot be taken to imply any endorsement or validation by us of the content of the said website. ESTechnical is not responsible for the privacy practices nor do we accept any liability in connection with the content of such websites.
