INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA+
We do not routinely nor intentionally collect or process personal data (as defined by the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”)) or the retained UK version of the same legislation (“UKGDPR”).
In some rare instances we may receive personal data originating in the EEA or UK from our UK based group company “Safety Technology International (Europe) Limited,” for the purposes of supplying information about our products or supplying the products themselves (where these are better supplied by our US companies than by the EMEA company based in the United Kingdom) directly to a client.
Where we receive such personal data originating in the EEA or UK, we understand our obligations under the GDPR and will honor our UK group company’s obligations as controller of the personal data collected from UK or EEA based data subjects. We will not share the personal data with third parties nor use it for other purposes than the supply of requested information or products (the purpose for which the personal data was provided to our UK based group company in the first place). We will keep the personal data received securely and delete it after seven years, although we may contact you from time to time about the products we have supplied if we consider we have a legitimate interest to do so and that in doing so, your rights are not infringed or prejudiced.
Surveys & Contests+
From time-to-time STI-USA.com requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user, therefore, has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Cookie and Tracking Technologies Policy: What are cookies and how do we use them?+
This policy is split into four sections:
- What are cookies and tracking technologies?
- The cookies and tracking technologies we use now and how to delete them
- Our classification of cookies
- Our main technology partners
1. What are cookies and tracking technologies?+
Where we talk about cookies on our websites, we mean cookies and web beacons.
What is a cookie?+
A list of all the cookies that we, our advertising network and technology partners use can be found in our cookie list.
What is a Flash cookie?+
This is a type of cookie which is collected via Adobe Flash media player – a piece of software which you probably have on your computer to help you watch online videos and listen to podcasts. We do not use Flash cookies at the moment.
Have a look at Adobe’s website if you want to control Flash cookies on your computer. If you use the Firefox browser you can also get an add-on to detect and delete Flash cookies.
What is a web beacon?+
Web beacons are usually tiny transparent images that help website owners track the activity of users on certain web pages. They can also send the website owner (for example, us or our technology partners) information in cookies such as whether an email with a web beacon in it has been opened. We use web beacons together with cookies to help us understand how you interact with our websites and the emails we send you; to help us improve your browsing experience; to ensure that content is relevant to you; and to better manage our website and email content.
2. The cookies and tracking technologies we use now and how to delete them+
When you access our websites you will receive a message advising you that we have placed some cookies on your computer. This was necessary in order to display the website page to you. If you continue to use our websites, further cookies will be placed on your computer to maximise your experience on our websites and to help us understand how we can improve them.
If you don’t want us to place cookies on your computer then there are a number of ways you can opt out – setting your browser either to reject all cookies, to only allow “trusted” sites to set them, or to accept only those cookies from those websites which you are currently on.
Please remember – if you do delete all your cookies, some features of our websites, such as remembering your login details, will not work and your experience on our websites may be affected.
We like the website www.aboutcookies.org which is run by the law firm Pinsent Masons. Not only does it have the recipe for ‘the world’s finest cookies’, it also gives you detailed step by step guidance on how to control and delete cookies depending on your browser type. You can then adjust your browser settings to your preferred level of protection.
We have also included links to the privacy and cookie policies of our technology partners in our our cookie list so that you can control the cookies they place more easily.
Google & Google Analytics+
In addition, we use Google’s remarketing technology to advertise online. In doing so, Google will place or read a unique ad-serving cookie on your computer and will use non-personal information about your browser and your activity on our sites to serve ads on their content network. Please click here for more information about remarketing or to opt-out of the Google remarketing cookie.
