Babbingtons Incorporated is aware that the protection of personal data and its confidential handling is of great concern to our users. We would therefore like to communicate below the information we collect and how we handle it.
We gather collective data, i.e. data on the number of visitors to our website and the pages which they visit. The name of the file, the date and time of the visit, the volume of data transferred and a message regarding whether the visit was successful is saved for each visit. This data provides us with information on the general interests and preferences of our visitors. The data is not person-related, but only of a general, statistical nature. We are therefore unable to determine which users have called up what data.
In addition, we automatically gather and save information that is transferred by your browser; in particular your IP address and the version of browser software you are using. This data is a foundation stone of the Internet’s fundamental technology and is used solely for system administration purposes and to ensure that our pages are transmitted correctly.
Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips / pointers, or order processing) or to participate in activities (such as sweepstakes or other promotions). You will be informed at each information point what information is required and what information is optional.
Length of Storage and Deletion
Any personal data that may be collected will be stored indefinitely. Naturally you have the right to request at any time that your data be wholly or partly deleted. We will carry out such a request without delay.
Links to Other Websites
Cookies are small text files which may be stored on the hard drive of a visitor to a website. They enable you to have personal settings on the website. These files can be used to trace visitor behaviour, in particular which pages have been visited. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but a few are configured such that they do not accept them or, at least, that they announce when a cookie will be sent.
Passing on Information to Third Parties (Use and Disclosure of Information)
We will not pass along any collected data to unaffiliated third parties, either through sale, lease, or exchange.
(iii) where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.
If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.
We ask that no one under the age of 18 submit to us any personal information through this website without first obtaining the permission of his or her parent or guardian.
