We are committed to protecting your privacy.
This policy applies to all information CIF receives from you, whether you are registering on our website or ordering any of our products. During the course of your use of this website, CIF may collect two types of information:
When CIF collects information directly from individuals, we obtain the personal information that is needed to provide our goods or services, respond to enquiries, to provide customer service and to fulfil any legal or regulatory requirements. We also obtain personal information as a result of individual’s financial transactions with CIF or with CIF business customers. When we obtain information about individuals from third parties, we use reputable sources, including public repositories. CIF employs appropriate measures to assure the quality of information that we collect.
This personal information may be used in a number of ways:
Within CIF, access to personal information is limited to those employees of CIF and its affiliates who need it to fulfil their business responsibilities. Vendors and other outside contractors we engage are subject to contractual requirements to ensure personal information is safeguarded. We will disclose personal information in response to a lawful request issued by a court, government agency or regulatory authority with jurisdiction to make that request.
CIF may collect information about User’s computers, including where available their IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration.
All information Users provide to CIF is stored on CIF’s secure servers in the UK. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although CIF will do its best to keep confidential and protect your personal data, CIF cannot guarantee the security of User’s data transmitted to the Site; any transmission is User’s own risk. Once CIF has received User’s information, CIF will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
CIF is committed to implementing the highest standards of information security to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information. We limit access to your personal information to authorised CIF employees. We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the information against loss, misuse, damage or modification and unauthorised access or disclosure.
When we have a direct relationship with individuals, we will strive to make information available to them about the general uses of the information that we collect. This information is made available at the point of sale, through privacy notices on our websites, in other formats that are publicly available or through other means specified by applicable EU legislation and laws.
CIF use information held about Users in the following ways:
Where User’s data is used to provide Users with information about goods and services which may be of interest, CIF will contact Users by electronic means only if they have consented to this.
Users have the right to ask CIF not to process their personal data for marketing purposes. CIF will usually inform Users if it intends to use their data for such purposes or if it intends to disclose their information to any third party for such purposes. Users can exercise their right to prevent such processing by contacting CIF at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of CIF’s partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If Users follow a link to any of these websites, they should note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that CIF does not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Users should check these policies before they submit any personal data to these websites.
CIF do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information online from a child under 16 since the Site is not directed at children. Any Users under 16 must get approval from a parent/guardian prior to submitting information. Users without consent are not allowed to provide us with information.
The Act gives Users the right to access information held about them. User’s right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. If Users would like a copy of some or all of their personal information they should email email@example.com or write to CIF at the address given above. Any access request may be subject to a fee to meet CIF’s costs in providing Users with details of the information it holds about them.
If you believe that any information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete, you should write without delay to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any information which is found to be incorrect or incomplete will be corrected promptly.
All complaints or concerns and appropriate resolution relating to the practices of handling personal information will be logged. Any complaints should be made to the Digital Marketing Manager at the email address given above.
CIF will retain the information for as long as it is reasonably considers necessary for the purposes listed above.
