Privacy policy

Abacus e-Media is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of site visitors, prospects, and customers. We will not sell your personal information to anyone. Any information captured on the site will be processed and utilized by Abacus within the UK.

The purpose of this policy is to explain the types of information we obtain from users through the Abacus web site, how the information is obtained, how it is used, how it may be obtained by others, and how its use and disclosure can be restricted. Abacus’ web site is governed by the following privacy principles:

Principle 1: General data collection
Our site automatically gathers certain anonymous traffic information, such as internet protocol addresses and other numeric codes used to identify a computer. This information is aggregated and does not personally identify you, but it helps us improve the site and the services we offer. For example, we may use IP addresses to monitor site usage to better prepare for anticipated traffic patterns. We may also gather user information that we save on your computer (not on our server) as ‘cookies’ in order to streamline the site experience.

Principle 2: Information requests
Abacus may request personal information from you in order to gather your contact information, such as name, company name, address, phone number, email address, and post code. Some of this information is optional and you may choose not to provide it. Abacus may use the information to contact you to further discuss your interest in our company and products, to send information regarding product updates, and to send a newsletter. You can opt out of being further contacted by us, or receiving such further information from us. Except as stated in this policy or as provided in Abacus license and services agreement, we do not disclose your personal information to any third party.

Principle 3: Disclosure
Abacus will not sell your individual information to any third parties. Abacus does not disclose your personal information to third parties, except as set forth in this policy and in cases where Abacus, acting in good faith, believes that such action is necessary to conform to legal requirements or comply with a legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order.

Principle 4: Solicitation
By providing your details on this site, you are authorizing Abacus to email you requested documents, a periodic newsletter, and other marketing information.

Some frequently asked privacy questions

What are cookies?
Cookies are files of information that a web site stores on your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can make the web more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular site. Cookies allow web sites to ‘remember’ users across pages of a site and across multiple visits to a site. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and many major web sites use them to provide useful features to their customers. Cookies, in and of themselves, do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user’s computer. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read unrelated information from a user’s hard drive. If you would prefer, you can set your settings to refuse cookies.

Is my personal information secure?
The personal information collected by Abacus is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the general public. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, while we strive to protect your personal information, Abacus cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
