What Personal Information does Elstead Lighting collect?
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalise and improve our services. We collect the following types of information from our customers.
Personal Information You Provide to Us:
We may receive and store any information you enter on our web site or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of features or opportunities. The personal information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain products and services, customising the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials, sales offers, new products and Elstead events.
Personal Information Collected Automatically:
- We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our web site or services. Elstead Lighting may choose to automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information and the page you requested.
- Generally, our service may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components. Elstead Lighting only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the web site or services so that we can improve the website and services.
- Our product automatically gathers certain information related to the usage and effectiveness of our online self-service support. We only use such data in the aggregate, and not in a form that would identify you personally. This aggregate data helps us determine how effective support service is, so we can improve our self-service tools and make them as effective as possible.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from Elstead Lighting if your computer supports this type of program. tuscany networks may use this confirmation to help us make e-mails more interesting and helpful. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify us by e-mail at email@example.com
