While Colin Berrido does not generally require that you provide us with personally identifiable information (for example, in order to visit and use the site “www.berridoguitars.co.uk”), please note that in order to participate in some activities, it will be necessary for you to provide this information. If you choose not to provide it for those activities, you may not be able to participate in them.
Collection of Information:
For each visitor to the www.berridoguitars.co.uk website, Colin Berrido’s web server automatically recognizes, collects and/or stores information such as the visitor’s IP address/Domain name combination and any referring sites. Colin Berrido may use several technologies to accomplish this. Examples of such technologies are cookies and web beacons. When you visit Colin Berrido’s websites or advertisements appearing thereon, or use one or more of the Colin Berrido’s website services, or receive emails from either the berridoguitars.co.uk domain, we may use an industry-wide technology called “cookies” which stores certain information on your computer and which will allow us to customize your experience to better match your interests and preferences or to simply facilitate your signing in to use the services. Most browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, if you block or erase cookies, we may not be able to restore any preferences or customization settings you previously specified and our ability to personalize your online experience would be limited. Please refer to your browser instructions or “help” screen to learn more about these functions. Colin Berrido may also use, or engage third parties to use, web beacons for researching certain usage and activities on our website. The information collected by Colin Berrido or requested from third parties through these web beacons is in an aggregate, non- individually identifiable form and is used to find out more about users including demographic information and usage patterns for more accurate reporting and to improve the effectiveness of our marketing. Colin Berrido may also use, or engage third parties to use, pixel tags or other technology to research or track your usage activities with respect to emails from us. Colin Berrido may ask you to provide “personal information”, meaning individually identifiable information such as your email address, name, mailing address, telephone number, social security number, credit card number, or persistent identifier (such as a customer number held in a cookie) which is associated with individually identifiable information, to enable you to participate in contests, chat rooms, on bulletin boards, to fill out a registration, or to order products and services using the site at the domain “berridoguitars.co.uk”. Colin Berrido may combine the information you provide on our website(s) with information we may collect offline from you or from third parties so that we can more effectively tailor our site, services and offerings to you.
Colin Berrido will not share the personal information you provide with any other parties, except (a) to other affiliated Colin Berrido companies who(a) may want to contact you about products, services or other offerings that may be of interest to you, (b) with your consent (see paragraph below), (c) as may be required by law or court order, (d) to persons or companies with whom Colin Berrido engages to carry out or provide support for the operations of the sites or our business, or (e) to appropriate third parties, including law enforcement or other government agencies, in connection with a criminal investigation, fraud prevention, or other legal action or if Colin Berrido reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to protect Colin Berrido, his customers, or the public.
Unless you instruct us otherwise, Colin Berrido may contact you to provide information about products, services, promotions, contests, or other activities or offerings that may be of interest to you. You can instruct us whether or not you wish to be contacted by checking or un-checking the box indicating your preference, as applicable, at the place where your information is collected. In addition, with each communication you receive from Colin Berrido, you will be given the opportunity to indicate if you do not wish to receive future communications from the company.
You can also to opt out of information related to consumer products by sending a message directly to email@example.com with the subject line “Remove Me”. With your consent, Colin Berrido may share your personal information with third parties outside of Berridoguitars.co.uk who may want to contact you about products, services or other offerings that may be of interest to you. Each of these companies may have their own privacy policies. Colin Berrido will seek to obtain your consent at the place where the information is collected either by an “opt-out” or “opt-in” method, or by other means (such as an email request). If you consent to receiving communications from any of these third parties, you will need to communicate with them directly if you later decide that you no longer wish to receive their communications.
For instructions on how to request changes to the personal information you have provided to Colin Berrido, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Use and Disclosure of Anonymous Aggregated Information
Colin Berrido may also collect, aggregate and maintain anonymous information about you, such as your hobbies, interests, purchasing habits, music preferences, and the like. This data can then be used to tailor Colin Berrido’s promotions, advertising, and communications to deliver a better experience for you. Colin Berrido may also share such aggregate information with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties; for example, to inform them about the percentage of male/female visitors to our site or the percentage of visitors within a particular age range.
Colin Berrido takes great care in maintaining the security of your personal information and in preventing unauthorized access to it through the use of appropriate technology and internal procedures. However, Colin Berrido does not guarantee that unauthorized access will never occur.
Notice To/Regarding Children under the Age of 13
Colin Berrido believes that children using the Internet require special protection, and we urge parents or guardians to explain Internet safety to their children. Parents are urged to spend time online with their children to become familiar with the types of content available on the Colin Berrido sites and the Internet in general. Control tools are available from online services and software manufacturers to help create a safer environment for children.
If you are under 13 years of age, you should not provide any personally identifiable information (for example, your last name, home address or e-mail address) on these sites without the knowledge and permission of your parent or guardian. If Colin Berrido learns that you are under 13 years of age, Colin Berrido will not maintain or use any personally identifiable information about you without the verifiable consent of your parent or guardian, except as allowed by law. This may mean that you will be unable to participate in some activities on the site without that verifiable consent. If a child under 13 years of age wishes to participate in any Colin Berrido’s website activity, or wishes to take advantage of a product or service offering available to children, and to do so necessitates the furnishing of any of the child’s personal information, please note the following:
(i) The name, address and email address of the operator collecting or maintaining personal information from children through this website are as follows:
e-mail address: email@example.com
Gloucester Gardens, Bagshot, Surrey, GU19 5NU
(ii) The types of personal information collected from children may include the name, email address, home address, telephone number and/or any other information reasonably necessary for the child to participate in a particular activity. This information may be collected directly and/or passively (e.g., through a web server that automatically recognizes and stores information such as a visitor’s IP address/domain name combination).
(iii) The information collected may be used for purposes such as fulfilment of a requested transaction, record keeping, marketing back to the child, or making it publicly available through a chat room or by other means.
(iv) Unless specific consent is obtained from the child’s parent or guardian, the child’s personal information will not be disclosed to third parties, who are not contractors, hired to carry out the internal operations of the websites, other than as may be required or permitted by law. We have required, or will require, such contractors to agree to use personal information of site visitors only for the purposes of carrying out these operations and to keep such information confidential. A parent or guardian has the option of consenting to the collection and use of the child’s personal information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to third parties.
(v) Colin Berrido is prohibited from conditioning a child’s participation in an activity on the child’s disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in such activity; and
(vi) A parent can review and have deleted the child’s personal information, can refuse to permit further collection or use of the child’s information, and can revoke or limit consents previously given.
Except as permitted by law, before any collection of a child’s personal information takes place at a website directed to children or where Colin Berrido is knowingly collecting children’s personal information, the child will be asked to provide his/her parent’s or guardian’s e-mail address so that Colin Berrido can contact the child’s parent or guardian. Colin Berrido will then send an email (the “Initial Notification”) to the parent/guardian indicating, among other things, the information that the child is requested to provide, the intended use(s) of the information and information on how the parent/guardian can, at their election, delete the child’s information from Colin Berrido’s database or records. Upon receipt of the Initial Notification, a parent or guardian may respond back to Colin Berrido to grant his/her consent or to deny consent in which case Colin Berrido will delete the parent or guardian’s email address and any other personal information, if any, previously obtained for securing parental consent. Upon Colin Berrido’s receipt of the parent/guardian consent, Colin Berrido will send a confirming email to the parent/guardian’s email address or take such other action as may be required to verify the consent.
If Colin Berrido desires to use a child’s information for purposes other than that for which the parent/guardian consent was previously given, Colin Berrido will not do so without first getting the parent/guardian consent.
