Privacy Statement

Information from the Sencon web site is collected in the following ways:

Active collection

Information you provide when you contact us to ask for information, quotations or product support. This includes your name, email address, details about your organization and other content you freely enter in the web enquiry forms or on-site search function. We will only use this information to provide you with the services you request.

Passive collection

Information that is automatically collected while you are interacting with the content on our site, including:

  • device screen size
  • device type and browser information
  • geographic location (country only)
  • pages visited, navigational paths and patterns
  • date and time when web pages were accessed

The sole purpose of passively collecting this information is to improve your experience when using our web services.

Cookies

Cookies are small data files transferred onto computers or devices by websites for record-keeping purposes and to enhance functionality on the website. The Sencon web site uses cookies to collect non-personal information including standard internet log data and details of your behavioural patterns when visiting our website pages. We do this to help provide you with a better experience, identify preferences, diagnose technical problems, analyse trends, and to improve our online presence.

Strictly necessary cookies are essential for carrying out some voluntary web based transactions e.g. sending a product enquiry or support requests (we use a cookie as part of a technical check on whether form data has been correctly sent by the server) or logging in to secure areas such as our Knowledgebase document library. Cookies defined as 'strictly necessary' are not used to gather information that could be used to advertise products or services to you. If you block these cookies you will not be able to sign in to secure areas of the site.

Performance cookies collect information about how you use our website e.g. which pages you visit and how you interact with functionality on the pages. These cookies do not collect any information that could identify you. All the information collected is anonymous and is only used to help us improve how our website works, understand what interests our users, and assess the effectiveness of our promotional activity. Cookies defined as 'performance' cookies will not be used to gather information that could be used to advertise products or services to you on other websites, or remember your preferences beyond your current visit. In common with many web sites, these cookies are managed by Google Analytics. Google does not use the cookies for any purpose other than those discussed above. (Google Privacy Statement.) We also use a service that helps us to visualize how anonymized users interact with our web pages so we can improve its structure and layout. This is managed by Hotjar Ltd. (Hotjar Privacy Statement )

Do not track (DNT) is a privacy option that is set by the user for each browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer). Google and Hotjar analytics, which are implemented on Sencon web pages, do not violate DNT requests because they only collate non-personalized visitor data that is limited to this website and domain. When a user navigates to another site, browsing details are not replicated or passed on. Sencon's web site does not carry third party advertising. We do not use cookies that link to third party services such as social networks or advertising agencies.

You can manage your own cookies. Acceptance of the “cookie widget” that appears in the bottom corner of our web pages indicates that you are content with the use of cookies on this site.(Note that a cookie is necessarily used to record and respect that choice). If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer, set your browser preferences to reject all cookies. However, please note that by doing so some features of the website may become unavailable.

To find out more about cookies and how to manage and delete them visit this independent web site.

Personal Data Storage

Like most businesses we keep a database of contacts and sales records. We also maintain a database of user names and passwords for customers who have registered to use our online Knowledgebase. Any personal data you submit is collected and stored in line with the UK Data Protection Act (1998) and similar legislation in other jurisdictions. Personal data will not be distributed, sold or disclosed to any third party except where authorized by you, if mandated by legitimate judicial authority, or as otherwise permitted by the UK Data Protection Act.
