2. Visitor Information
During the course of any visit to this website, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a ‘cookie’, are downloaded to your computer.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. For example: if on a previous visit you went to briefcase firework boxes, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight single igniton boxes on your second and subsequent visits to make selection easier.
3. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the sites features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you have set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse the site anonymously until such time as you wish to receive products or services. For further information on cookies please visit www.aboutcookies.org.
4. Use & storage of personal information
When you supply any personal information to this website (e.g. for brochure requests, quotations, general enquiries, job applications and asking us to send information to colleagues or friends) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use those data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular webpages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to the Phoenix Fireworks Limited will only be used within the Phoenix Fireworks Limited and by its agents (eg freight carriers where delivery is required). Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to phoenixfireworks.co.uk or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on the website, Phoenix Fireworks Limited can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is required. For safety reasons, however, Phoenix Fireworks Limited may store messaging transcript data (including message content, member names, times and dates) arising from the use of teh website. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you are notified on the website that your information may be used to allow the Phoenix Fireworks Limited to contact you for “service administration purposes”, this means that the Phoenix Fireworks Limited may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance.
