What types of Information do we collect?
We collect personal information from visitors to www.testhouse.net and any of its subsites (‘the Site’) by the use of online forms, and every time you email us your details.
Testhouse Ltd. gathers three types of information about you, namely:
- Aggregated information generated by our systems – or third party systems – to track our website traffic but that which does not identify you personally;
- Personal information about you such as your name, contact information, including email address and IP address, and in some cases, your billing details and general financial and credit information;
- Other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers;
The type of information that Testhouse Ltd. collects about you is dependent on how you use the services offered on our website and the services and products you are interested in purchasing from us.
Generally, Testhouse Ltd. does not collect ‘sensitive information’ about you.
Sensitive information includes – but is not limited to – information about your race or ethnic origin, your religion and your sexual preferences.
Testhouse Ltd. will only collect sensitive information about you in the event that it is necessary for the purpose of providing you with a product or service. In such circumstances, Testhouse Ltd. will only collect sensitive information with your consent, unless we are required by law to collect such information from you.
Collection of Aggregate Data
Testhouse Ltd. also automatically collects non-personal information in aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visits to our website, the number of visits to specific areas of our website and the domain names of our website visitors’ internet service providers.
These help us identify both which areas of the site you have visited, and how you got there. This information, which remains in aggregate form, can help us to improve the content and structure of the site, and ultimately our service to you, our customers.
Your Internet Provider – IP – address
Testhouse Ltd.’s web servers provide us with your IP address – this assists us in the diagnosis of problems and or support issues with our services.
Cookies and Applets
Testhouse Ltd. uses ‘cookies’ and ‘applets’ in its website systems. These enable you to use web-based services and demonstrations on out site. We use ‘cookies’ to identify you when you visit this website and to keep track of your browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile of you as a user of our website. If you do not wish your progress through the site to be tracked in this way, then you can disable cookies and applets via your computer’s web browser. Choosing the option to decline cookies or applets will turn off this tracking function. This will not affect your access to the majority of information available on our website, but some features may not function.
How we use your personal information
We store and process personal information collected via the Site to contact you with details about services and opportunities we offer to customers. Under the General Data Protection Regulation, we ask you to explicitly opt-in or opt-out of receiving information from us.
