We may also collect information regarding your personal or professional interests, demographics, past experience with The Crossways Groombridge products and services, detailed contact preferences or other personally identifiable information. We may use any information that we collect, including personally identifiable information, to tailor subsequent communications to you, including marketing and promotional communications, to administer and operate the Web Sites and our business and to provide and continually improve The Crossways Groombridge offerings. In addition, we may use your information to undertake market analysis and research (including contacting you with customer surveys) so that we can better understand you as a customer and provide tailored offers, products and services that we think you will be interested in. We will only send marketing communications to you if you have provided your consent for us to do so or which we have obtained in the ways mentioned in the paragraphs below;
We undertake NOT to share information that we collect, including personally identifiable information, with resellers or other third parties in order to market their products and/or services to you.
We do, however, provide our users a choice as to whether or not they would like to receive marketing or promotional communications. Users may from time to time receive up-to-date information on products and services via our content marketing emails. Users may opt-out at any time from receiving these communications. Please see Section 3, Choice.
We may also periodically conduct business and individual user surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve our products and services. Participation in such surveys is completely voluntary and you, therefore, have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.
Data you submit online may also be combined with other information you provide through other means of communication, such as postal mail.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring pages, date/time stamp and click stream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the Web Sites, to track users’ movements around the Web Sites and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Our Web Sites include social media features, such as the Facebook “Like” button Widgets and the “Share” button. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Web Sites, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Web Sites. Your interactions with these features are governed by the Privacy Statement of the company providing it.
We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary.
We may use your personally identifiable information for purposes not directly related to products and/or services you have requested or other requests or inquiries you have made, such as to send you email communications, information about our discussion forums and user groups and customer service communications information on new products or offers and information from The Crossways Groombridge partners unless you direct us not to do so by opting-out at the point where the information is collected. Additionally, you may opt-out from use of your personally identifiable information collected online for the purpose of sending such marketing or promotional communications at any time by clicking on the Unsubscribe button clearly marked in the footer of such communications. Alternatively, you can send an email to email@example.com.
