  1. Data Protection & Privacy

Any details which You provide to ABC from which We can identify You are held and processed in accordance with our Data Protection registration at the ICO, and you hereby confirm your revocable consent to use Your personal Data for the processing of any transactions envisaged by these Terms.

Personal data, including but not limited to profiles of users, service provider access patterns may be used by Us for the purposes of providing targeted offers and promotions to You both by tailoring of the online presence and also, where You have opted in to receive email & SMS marketing, by targeted email & SMS marketing. This information is limited to first and last name and, if relevant, unique identifier (such as your IP address). Further details are set out in our Privacy Policy including details of how to obtain a copy of all personal data that we hold about you.

The Web Site is not directed nor targeted to children. ABC will not knowingly collect information from children. Because our software does not automatically distinguish visitors under 18 years of age from other visitors, ABC requires users under 18 years of age to obtain the consent of a parent, guardian, teacher, or librarian to view the Website. If ABC learns that a child has provided personally identifiable information to the Website, it will use reasonable efforts to remove such information from its files.

  1. IP Addresses and Cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’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 website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

On the ABC’s Website, cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor our services to your interests. You have the opportunity to set your devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The use of the last of these options means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided to You and accordingly You may not be able to take full advantage of all of the our Website or the third party website’s features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

During the course of any visit to Website, the webpages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. The majority of websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

Our Website may contain embedded “Share” buttons or software code to enable users of our Website to connect to popular social network providers.  These third party sites may set cookies or other monitors that track your use of their service. ABC does not control the use of these cookies and you should check with the relevant third party website you are using for the terms that they impose on you.
