Privacy policy

 

Cantate Communications is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This page discloses our data protection and privacy practices.

 

The information we collect from you

You may visit our website anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from you only if you choose to submit such information to us. This information will help us to provide a better website service and to enable us to contact you from time to time with marketing messages.

We use a web analytics tool to analyse site usage, how our users arrive at our site, what they do on the site, what browser they are using and so on. However, this analytics data, collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site, does not collect personally identifiable information.

We also may use cookies on certain pages of our site to deliver certain features or to provide information which is targeted to your interests. Cookies may also be used to monitor site performance and to measure site traffic and usage. Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our site. Most cookies are "session" cookies, meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session.

The other type of cookie we may use is a "persistent" cookie which stays on your hard drive and is typically used so that you do not need to log in manually every time you visit a website if you are a registered user. The cookie contains no personally identifiable information. Instead, it passes an ID to the web server which correlates to your personal information. These cookies are used to track how often you visit the site. You are always free to decline cookies if your browser permits.

Newsletters, surveys and competitions. From time to time we may request information from you via surveys, competitions or for a particular service such as a newsletter sign-up. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. Information requested may include contact information and additional contextual information which may help us to learn more about you and your interests. In the case of competitions, we will not publish winners' details on the website though on request we will provide details of any winner's name and organisation. If the survey or contest has a sponsor then, with the user's consent, we may share information given by entrants with the sponsor.

Blog. In order to leave a comment in our blog you have to give us at least your name and email address. We do not use these contact details for marketing purposes, nor will we share them with a third party.

 

How we use your information

We use personally identifiable information about you (and information which cannot be used to personally identify you) to improve our sales and marketing, to analyse site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customise our site's content, layout, and services.

If you sign up for a newsletter or other service and explicitly indicate that you agree to being contacted by us for marketing purposes, we may use your email address to send you newsletters or other communications.

Your personal information is stored in our databases and may be transferred outside the European Economic Area to the United States of America where it will be stored for the purposes of processing newsletter broadcasting by our subcontractors. By submitting your information, you consent to this transfer.

 

Email communications

Our regular email newsletters and other communications will include a link which will enable you to remove your details from our mailing database. You may also contact us directly to request that your details are manually removed at any time.

 

Disclosure

We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party.

We cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.

We may, for example, be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. We can (and you authorise us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, Intellectual Property Rights infringements, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us to legal liability.

 

Changes to Privacy Policy

If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will make any changes to this Privacy Policy at this current URL.

 

Your acceptance of these terms

By using this website you indicate that you accept this privacy policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use this website. Your continued use of this website following any changes to this policy (as outlined above) will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
