We (GeoWise Limited) recognise that privacy is an important issue for visitors to our web site.  We will obtain personal information from you when you enquire about our services, or register online with us or when you make a purchase from us.

In order to understand traffic patterns and improve the value of our web site content, we collect site visitor data on an aggregate, anonymous basis. No personal information is associated with the data. This data includes for example the number of ‘hits’ on any specific page, how long visitors remain on the site and the domain from which a visitor comes to the site.

When you visit our site, we may also log your IP address, a unique identifier for your computer or other access device.

We may also store information about you in cookies (files which are sent by us to your computer or other access device) which we can access when you visit our site in future. If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies.

We will use your personal and other information to provide you with information about our goods and services, for administration and customer services purposes, for credit scoring, for marketing, to analyse your purchasing preferences and to ensure that the content, services and advertising that we offer are tailored to your needs and interests. We may keep your information for a reasonable period for these purposes. We may need to share your information with our service providers, associated companies and agents for these purposes. We may disclose personal data in order to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

We send out periodic bulletins by email to inform you of the latest company and product news.  If you are happy for your e-mail address to be used for these purposes please indicate this where provided on the online registration form.  If you do not want to receive these occasional emails, please indicate this on the same form or, at any other time, send a blank email to unsubscribe@geowise.co.uk.

To help us to make credit decisions about you, to prevent fraud, to check your identity and to prevent money laundering, we may search the files of credit reference agencies who will record any credit searches on your file. We may also disclose details of how you conduct your account to such agencies. The information will be used by other credit grantors for making credit decisions about you and the people with whom you are financially associated, for fraud prevention, money laundering prevention and occasionally for tracing debtors.

In the event of a sale or acquisition of some or all of our business or assets, customer information may be one of the assets transferred.

By providing us with your personal information, you consent to our processing your personal data for the above purposes.

If you provide us with information about another person, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them to consent to the processing of their personal data and that you have informed them of our identity and the purposes (as set out above) for which their personal data will be processed.

We provide links to other web sites from our web site.  We are not responsible for the content or privacy policies of these sites and third party advertisers, nor for the way in which information about their visitors is treated. In particular, unless expressly stated, we are not agents for these sites or advertisers nor are we authorised to make representations on their behalf.

You are entitled to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you (for which we may charge a small fee) and to have any inaccuracies in your information corrected.

If your personal details change, if you change your mind about any of your marketing preferences or if you have any queries about how we use your information, please let us know by contacting our Data Protection Officer at info@geowise.co.uk or by writing to us at Geowise Limited, Holyrood Park House, 106 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh EH8 8AS, United Kingdom.
