Your privacy on birchworldwide.com
This website is managed by BIRCH WORLDWIDE. The purpose of birchworldwide.com is to provide channel services to organisations operating an indirect and direct sales model. We want you to feel secure when visiting our website and are dedicated to maintaining your privacy when doing so.
The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit to us.
What information do we gather?
Information on birchworldwide.com is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of birchworldwide.com).
An example of information we collect indirectly is through our website access logs. When you access birchworldwide.com, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our website access logs. We also include Google Analytics on most of our web-pages. Google is an international company that has stringent and fully secure facilities which ensure your security. You can read more about Google Analytics here http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html.
We also collect information when you willingly submit it to us. Throughout our site, we provide the opportunity to contact us for more information or a quotation. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
How do we use this information?
We analyse it to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor birchworldwide.com to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.
Will we share this with outside parties?
We will never share any information you have provided to us to any 3rd party company, organisation or individual. We may, from time to time, publish our visitor volume statistics or other visitor count metrics. However, in these cases, they will relate to indirectly gathered log information and not personal or privileged data.
What about sensitive personal data?
We do not actively seek sensitive or personal data through our website. If a visitor voluntarily sends us sensitive or personal data through our website, we will destroy it once discovered.
Any payment information e.g. credit cards and bank details processed through our website will be collected through our bank. We do not store credit card or bank details collected from our website.
Do we give you access to your information?
Please use our contact us page to request all/any information we hold on you.
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your information on birchworldwide.com. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that information can flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the information is intended.
Our website and websites server is stored in a secure data centre behind an industry grade hardware firewall.
