Our use of cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

This website uses Google Analytics which uses cookies to track visitor usage. The software will save a cookie to your computer’s hard drive in order to track and monitor your engagement and usage of the website, but will not store, save or collect personal information. You can read Google's privacy policy for further information at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not, as well as storing specific information like sessions that are critical to the successful running of the website. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

How to update your information

When you use our services, we try to give you the ability to edit your information, for example from your Apantic.com dashboard. This will allow you to quickly update or delete your information. When changing personal information, we may ask you to identify yourself to verify your request.

We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).

We may keep a log of old information, for example when you place an order or pay an invoice we may save certain information at the time, such as a VAT number or an address, for legal reasons, for security reasons or for business reasons.

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Changes to our policy

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any Privacy Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will aim to provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of Privacy Policy changes).

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. A small fee may be payable.
