Use, disclosure and storage of personal information
Whenever you supply any personal information to us, we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
We are pleased to inform you that any information which you provide to us will only be used within Quick on the Net Limited and its affiliated service providers. It will never be supplied to anyone else without first obtaining your consent, unless we are required by law to disclose it.
However, if you post unlawful, offensive or inappropriate content anywhere on our website or your customer website or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour, and we consider such behaviour to be a serious matter, we may use whatever information is available to us about you to stop such behaviour. This may include informing relevant third parties such as police authorities, your employer, school, email provider or internet provider about the content and your behaviour.
When you register your details with us and place an order using the order/checkout form, we need to know certain information about you in order to fulfil your order request.
For UK tax purposes (Value Added Tax or VAT), we need to know what you are using QUICK ON THE NET for and where you are located. We must know your email address, name, address, and date of birth.
