We will not provide your personal information to any third parties for the purpose of direct marketing.
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and to identify users returning to a website.
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
COOKIES ON THIS WEBSITE
We may send to you the following cookies:
Google Analytics _utma - This cookie enables us to determine whether or not you have visited our Website previously.
Google Analytics _utmb - This cookie is used to establish and continue your session on our Website, and updates each time you visit a new page.
Google Analytics _utmz - This cookie enables us to establish how you reached our Website e.g. through a link, from another website or by typing in the Website URL.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:
to improve the website's usability
to analyse the use of our website
in the administration of this website
to improve the security of the website
to personalise our website for you
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. For example:
in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector
in Firefox you can block all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”, and un-checking “Accept cookies from sites” in the “Privacy” box.
Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
You can also delete cookies already stored on your computer:
in Internet Explorer, you must manually delete cookie files - you can find instructions for doing so at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278835
in Firefox, you can delete cookies by first ensuring that cookies are to be deleted when you “clear private data” (this setting can be changed by clicking “Tools”, “Options” and “Settings” in the “Private Data” box) and then clicking “Clear private data” in the “Tools” menu.
Doing this may have a negative impact on the usability of many websites.
You have the right:
to ask us not to use your personal data for direct marketing. To do so, visit your Email preferences and Personalisation settings from an 'unsubscribe' link at the bottom of any email we send to you.
to ask us not to process your personal data where it is processed on the basis of legitimate interests.
to request from us access to personal information held about you.
to ask for the information we hold about you to be rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
to ask that we stop any consent-based processing of your personal data after you withdraw that consent.
to ask, in certain circumstances, to delete the personal data we hold about you.
to ask, in certain circumstances, for the processing of that information to be restricted.
to ask, in certain circumstances, for data portability.
We will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted or anonymised (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes.
In addition, we may disclose your personal information:
to the extent that we are required to do so by law
in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings
in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk)
to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
Of course, data transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You are responsible for keeping your password and user details confidential. We will not ask you for your password except when you log in to the website.
Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated.
The data controller responsible in respect of the information collected on this website is Kristel Läänesaar.
