By accessing or using this or any web site operated by Hindle Group Limited ("Hindle"), you agree to the terms of the Hindle Online Policy, as outlined below. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not access or use any Hindle web site.
Collection of Personal Information
When you engage in certain activities on this site, such as ordering products, downloading software, or entering contests, Hindle may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, Hindle may require that you provide us personal information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, and other personal identifying information. When ordering products on a Hindle web site, you may be asked to provide a credit or debit card number and data requisite for ordering.
Hindle collects this information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you order a product, for example, the information is used to register your license and rights, if any, to technical support, upgrade discounts, or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. If you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Hindle also uses information that you provide as part of our effort to keep you informed about products and services, special offers, and other Hindle products and services.
Hindle recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of this information. If you do not want the information you provide to Hindle to be used to inform you of other products and special offers from Hindle, and you indicate this preference when you provide the information to Hindle, Hindle will honour your preference. In addition, Hindle may selectively provide certain information to other companies or organisations that have products or services we think may interest you. If you do not want the information you provide to Hindle to be shared with other companies, and you indicate this preference when you provide the information to Hindle, Hindle will honour your preference. When you submit personal information to Hindle with respect to a particular activity, such as ordering a product, you understand and agree that in order to complete the activity and update related files, Hindle and its subsidiaries, affiliates and trusted vendors may need to transfer, store, and process your information in any of the countries in which such entities maintain offices, including without limitation, the United Kingdom. Your personal information will not be transferred outside of the European Union for any other purpose unless you give your consent.
When you visit a Hindle web site, e.g. Hindle.co.uk, you can surf the site anonymously and access important information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our site, we use "cookies" to track your visit. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a Web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card, recording your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.
Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some Web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)
