Control of your Personal Information:

You may choose not to have your personal information used in any of the ways described in this Privacy Policy. Where your personal information is collected you will often be given the opportunity to give or refuse your consent to certain uses of your personal information. If at any time you wish to have your personal information removed from our records, or you wish us to stop using your personal information in certain ways, or if you wish to discover the extent of personal information that we hold about you ("Subject Access Request or "SAR"") then please write to us c/o Data Protection, Mediatel Limited, 1st Floor, Burleigh House, 357 Strand WC2R 0HS.

Security of your Personal Information:

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. We store personal information you provide on computer systems that have limited access and which are located in secure facilities.

Cookies:

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit http://www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.

We may use both "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies on the website. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

We do this because cookies enable us to do useful things such as find out whether you have visited our website before by checking to see, and finding, the cookie we left there on your previous visit. Cookies help us to provide you with a better experience when you visit our website as well as helping us to customise your profile.

The following tables describe the cookies we use on this site and what we use them for. Currently we operate an 'implied consent' policy which means that we assume you are happy with this usage. If you are not, within your browser you can elect to receive notification when a cookie is sent or decline all cookies. Declining cookies may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Email tracking:

Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site, and can track at an individual level whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. Sometimes we do use the personal information e.g. to re-email people who didn’t click the first time. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of Mediatel's emails which you can do by emailing or writing to Marketing Dept, Mediatel Limited, 1st Floor, Burleigh House, 357 Strand, London WC2R 0HS.

Payment Processing:

In order to process payments online we require your name and postal address, alongside telephone and email details. This information will be used to send you an invoice if requested. Your details will also be added to our mailing list to receive further marketing information - all marketing emails contain an unsubscribe option.
