    Types of information we gather

    Information you give us: we receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features: for example on our contact forms.

    Automatic information: we receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses 08UK’s sites. We work with third parties to collect user data for conversion tracking and serving specific marketing targeted to users’ interests. Users can opt out of interest-based advertising through methods that such provider may specify.

    Email communications: to help us make emails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open an email from 08UK Ltd if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us you can opt out at any time.

    Information from other sources: we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.


    Google Analytics

    We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

    You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy as regards its analytics service at https://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html?hl=en-GB

    Third Party Cookies: These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site allow visitors to share content onto social networks. Cookies are currently set by LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Livezilla chat and Google+. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that some of these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website.

    You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

    The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of Windsor Telecom’s most innovative and useful features and we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you do leave cookies turned on, be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.


    Does 08UK Ltd Share the Information It Receives?

    Information about our customers is an important part of our business and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We do not share customer information with any other organisation or company.

    By using this site, you agree to comply with personal data (CLI) in accordance with The UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 and not utilise any data for marketing purposes nor attempt to contact any caller to sell or promote any service or product.

    Business transfers: In the unlikely event that 08UK Ltd’s assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

    Protection of 08UK Ltd and others: we release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements or to protect the rights, property or safety of 08UK Ltd, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in a way that is contrary to the commitments made in this Privacy Notice.


    How Secure Is Information About Me?

    We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.


    Conditions of Use, Notices and Revisions

    If you choose to visit 08UK Ltd, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Privacy Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages and application of the laws of England.

    Our business changes constantly and our Privacy Notice and the Conditions of Use will change also. We may email periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our website frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account.

    You provide most of such information when you search, buy, participate in a contest or questionnaire or communicate with customer services. For example, you provide information when you search for a product, place an order through 08UK Ltd, provide information in your account, communicate with us by phone, email, web or otherwise or complete a questionnaire. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, email address and phone number.
