Who we are

SPS Doorguard Privacy policy

SPS Doorguard is committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our web site. Visitors may provide as much or as little information as they feel comfortable with, and may access this site in its entirety without providing any personal data at all. 

Personal data

We do not attempt to collect any personal data about you through this web site unless you provide it to us voluntarily; for example, by sending us email, filling in an information request form or subscribing to our newsletter or other email communications.

We use this data only for the purpose for which you provide it; for example, to reply to a question or enquiry you have sent. Additionally, in the case of our newsletter subscribers, we collect statistics that help us to judge the effectiveness of our newsletters.

We shall not give your name, address, email address or any other personal data to any third party unless it is necessary for the purpose for which you provided the data; or requested by an authoritative body such as the police. Any data SPS Doorguard receives is provided in compliance with the United Kingdom Data Protection Act 1998. We do not send out bulk, unsolicited commercial email, often known as “spam”. The only email messages we send contain information that has been specifically requested.

Information collected automatically

Like most web sites, our web server creates log files. The server automatically collects and records in the log files some information about your visit to this site, such as the type of web browser and operating system you are using, the pages you visit, and the date and time of your visit. We cannot identify you personally from this information. We use the log files to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how people use our site and help us improve the content and structure of the site. None of this information is shared with third parties.

Storing your personal data

In operating our website, it may become necessary to transfer data that we collect from you to locations outside of the European Union for processing and storing. By providing your personal data to us, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing. We do our utmost to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to make sure that your data is stored securely.

Unfortunately, the sending of information via the internet is not totally secure and on occasion such information can be intercepted. We cannot guarantee the security of data that you choose to send us electronically, sending such information is entirely at your own risk.

Cookies

The SPS Doorguard web server uses cookies to help us compile the statistics mentioned above. A cookie is a small string of text that a website transfers to your web browser’s cookie file on your computer’s hard disk. Cookies allow our web server to recognise you (or to be precise, your computer) as a unique visitor as you move from page to page or make return visits to the site.

We use a mixture of session cookies, which expire when you close your web browser at the end of your browsing session; and persistent cookies, which remain on your hard drive until you erase them or until they expire.

The cookies we set do not contain any personal data about you, and you cannot be identified personally from the cookies: the information they contain is completely anonymous, comprising only the name of the cookie, its expiration date, and a numerical value.

Your ability to access and use this site will not be inhibited or impaired in any way if you choose to disable cookies in your browser.

Google Analytics

When someone visits https://spsdoorguard.com  we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

Mailchimp

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our e-newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe from our e-newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.

Links to other sites

This web site may contain links to other sites. Please note that SPS Doorguard is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of those web sites. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of every web site that collects personal data. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
