Dorset Schoolwear is committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy statement explains data collection and use practices of the Dorset Schoolwear website (the “Site”). By accessing the Site, you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this privacy statement.
Collection Of Your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you to provide a service or carry out a transaction that you have requested such as receiving information about Dorset Schoolwear products and services, entering a contest, ordering e-mail newsletters, signing up for an event or training, or when purchasing, downloading and/or registering Dorset Schoolwear products. The personal information we collect may include your name, title, company or organisation name, work e-mail, work phone, work or home address, information about your job function, information about your company, and credit card information.
The Site may collect certain information about your visit, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Site; the pages that you access while at the Site and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our site. This information is used to help improve the site, analyse trends and administer the site. Some of our sites collect information about your hardware and software in order to provide a requested service.
Use Of Your Personal Information
The personal information collected on this Site will be used to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized. In support of these uses, Dorset Schoolwear may use personal information to provide you with more effective customer service, to improve the Site and any related products or services, and to make the Site easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customising the Site to your particular preference or interests. In order to offer you a more consistent experience in your interactions with Dorset Schoolwear, information collected by the Site may be combined with information collected by other Dorset Schoolwear services.
We may use your personal information to provide you with important information about the product or service that you are using, including updates and notifications. Additionally, with your permission, we may send you information about other Dorset Schoolwear products and services, and/or share information with Dorset Schoolwear partners so they may send you information about their products and services.
When you sign up for a newsletter or agree to receive promotional e-mail, Dorset Schoolwear may use customised links or similar technologies to track e-mail links that you click. We may associate that information with your personal information in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or purchase information. Each e-mail communication includes an unsubscribe link allowing you to stop delivery of that type of communication.
Dorset Schoolwear occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as website hosting, packaging, mailing, answering customer questions about products and services, and sending information about our products, special offers, and other services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Dorset Schoolwear may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Dorset Schoolwear or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Dorset Schoolwear; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Dorset Schoolwear employees or agents, users of Dorset Schoolwear products or services, or members of the public.
Personal information collected on the Site may be stored and processed in the United Kingdom or any other country in which Dorset Schoolwear or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
Control Of Your Personal Information
Except as otherwise described in this statement, personal information you provide on the Site will not be shared outside of Dorset Schoolwear and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your permission.
Please be aware that this privacy statement and any choices you make on the Site will not necessarily apply to personal information you may have provided to Dorset Schoolwear in the context of other, separately operated, Dorset Schoolwear products or services.
Dorset Schoolwear may send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service or security issues related to a product or service you requested, or confirming you requested a product or service. In some services offered by Dorset Schoolwear, contact with the customer is an intrinsic part of the service. You will not be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings, as they are considered an essential part of the service(s) you have chosen.
Security Of Your Personal Information
Dorset Schoolwear is committed to protecting the 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. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. Additionally, when we transmit sensitive personal information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Dorset Schoolwear is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect any personal information from children.
