We may collect and process the following data about you:
We may collect information about your computer including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration purposes. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
A cookie is a small file that holds a certain amount of data, which our website can send to your browser. It may then be stored on your computer’s hard drive and can be accessed by our web server. To clarify, cookies do not collect any personal data stored on your hard drive or computer.

Any communication you transmit to Earthport Plc via this site is over the internet and is non-confidential and non-proprietary.

We may share your personal information with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties:
The data that we collect from will may be transferred to, and stored at, our secure servers within the European Economic Area (EEA). However, from time to time, your personal data may be transferred to, stored in or access from a destination outside the EEA.

Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. Where this is the case, we will ensure that any transfer of your data is adequately protected in compliance with data protection law.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted [using SSL technology].

We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.

How long we hold your personal data for will vary. The retention period will be determined by various criteria including the purpose for which we are using it and any legal obligations attached to the retention of your personal data. If you are a customer, our policy is to keep all personal data for a period of 10 years following the termination of any client relationship.
