Collection and use of data
We manage data that we collect from you on two bases, legitimate interest and consent.
- Legitimate Interest
Information collected from you in the performance of our contract to provide IT hardware, software or services to you is managed on the basis of legitimate interest. We collect your contact information (email, contact details, postal address and account details). This includes registration forms that you may complete on our site and communications of certain relevant sales, marketing or technical information in line with the life cycle of the products and services purchased by you.
For non-customers, information that you divulge to us is collected through actions you take on our site, such as completing online forms, downloading reports, completing surveys or subscribing to our newsletter. This data is managed on a consent basis and you can unsubscribe from these communications at any time by using the ‘unsubscribe’ option on any of our outbound communications.
We will not collect any personal information about you without your permission. We respect your right to privacy and commit to protecting the personal information we collect from you.
We may collect non-personal identification information about you whenever you interact with our site. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about the means of connection to our site, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilised and other similar information.
We will communicate our updated policies to you by posting a notice on the site and by emailing a notification to you.
Data retention and deletion

Any tracking that we do on our site is designed to deliver the best possible browsing experience to you.
Your permission-based data is shared with a number of third parties which enables us to provide our services to you.
