Your privacy is critically important to us. At Hoare Laboratory Engineering, we have a few fundamental principles:
We are Hoare Laboratory Engineering (Hoare). We own and operate this website.
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so – for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we use the information.
If you complete one of our forms, you provide personal information that is required to process enquiries, such as your name and contact information. We do not process or store any personal payment details on hoare.co.uk
Information Automatically Collected
Like most online service providers, our servers automatically log information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. This data is strictly necessary for the purposes of preventing fraud and ensuring network and information security.
We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate safeguards on your privacy
Subsidiaries and Employees
We may disclose information about you in response to a court order, or other governmental request.
Information Shared Publicly
We will never share your information publicly
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it – and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to hoare.co.uk, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyse traffic and investigate issues if something goes wrong.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:
You can contact us on email@example.com to request any of the above actions, you will receive a request confirmation email to ensure you are who you say you are. Once this email has been responded to then we will take action as soon as possible.
EU individuals also have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.
