ACEL Systems privacy policy

ACEL Systems Ltd provides this web site as a service.

We recognise that your privacy is important. This document outlines the types of personal information we receive and collect when you use, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard information. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with us.

ACEL Systems Ltd strives to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity in all our operations. Likewise, we are dedicated to protecting our customers, consumers and online visitors privacy on our web site.

Personal Information

ACEL Systems Ltd collects personally identifiable information from the visitors to our web site only on a voluntary basis. Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include name, postal address, email address, company name and telephone number.

This data is collected if you purchase an item or service from us, request information from us, participate in a contest or sweepstakes, sign up to join our email list or request some other service or information from us. The information collected is internally reviewed and may be used to improve the content of our web site, notify our visitors of updates and respond to visitor inquiries.

Once information is reviewed, it is discarded or stored in our files. If we make material changes in the collection of personally identifiable information we will inform you by placing a notice on our site. Personal information received from any visitor will be used only for internal purposes and will not be sold or provided to third parties.

When you make a purchase

So that we can fulfil your order, we collect and process your name and address when you make an order on the site. We do NOT store full credit card numbers on this website at all. Only the last four digits of your card are ever visible to us.

Once an order is placed we will either ship the items/provide the service you ordered or issue a refund if there is a problem with the order. We cannot charge your card again unless you submit a new order.

So that we can fulfil your order, a copy of your purchase receipt (containing your name, delivery and billing address and details of the items you ordered) is e-mailed to us when you make a purchase through the site and this information is kept on-file for accounting and tax purposes. Under UK law we must keep records of where our orders where shipped to for a period of six (6) years to prove that VAT was applied correctly.

When visiting our site

IP addresses are logged to prevent abuse and spam. An IP address cannot be used to personally identify you without additional data from your ISP that is not available to us.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

We may use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to enable our systems to recognise your browser. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the sites pages, or register with any of our site’s services, a cookie enables ACEL Systems Ltd to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your web browser. However, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single web site or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

We may serve third party advertisements that use cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web site. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn’t cause a problem with our site.

Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it to serve ads to you based on the sites you visit on the internet. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie, or learn more about its use, by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy. No personally identifiable information is provided or collected through this system.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act

This web site is directed to adults; it is not directed to children under the age of 13. We operate our site in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age.

Non-Personal Information

In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. The information collected is used solely for internal review and not shared with other organisations for commercial purposes.

Release of Information

If ACEL Systems Ltd is sold, the information we have obtained from you through your voluntary participation in our site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through our web site of that change in control and practices, and we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honours any opt-out requests you might make of us.

How You Can Correct or Remove Information

We provide this privacy policy as a statement to you of our commitment to protect your personal information. If you have submitted personal information through our web site and would like a copy of that information, or you would like that information deleted from our records or would like to update or correct that information, please click on this link and use our Contact Us page.

Please be aware that we may be legally obliged to retain certain historical data (such as invoice details) in order to comply with other legal and tax requirements.

Data Breaches
