Cookies

The Aberlink website uses electronic cookies for analytic purposes.

Cookies are small pieces of data which are stored in your browser when visiting websites. These pieces of data can be set and received by a website and allow websites to better understand activity on their sites. Users are advised that if they wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this website on to their device(s) they should take necessary steps within their web browsers security settings to block all cookies from this website and its external serving vendors or alternatively, do not accept the cookie compliance prompt when first visiting the website, with the drawback that certain features of Aberlink's website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Aberlink uses Google Analytics to collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Aberlink's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website and to track and monitor engagement.

Aberlink also collects potentially personally-identifying information like network domain names where users of the website have allowed that information to be publicly available and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for user submitted forms, for the prevention of spam and misuse. IP addresses are only visible and disclosed to the administrators of the website.



Gathering of Personally Identifying Information

Visitors to Aberlink's website choose to interact with Aberlink in ways that require the gathering of personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Aberlink gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. When filling out contact forms, customers are asked to provide a name, company name, email address and telephone number. For newsletters, only an email address is collected. In each case, Aberlink collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Aberlink.

We use an SSL certificate to encrypt all data on our website, which means that all data sent via the submitted form is only visible to Aberlink. This helps to protect online users against hackers, who try to steal users' information.

Aberlink does not store personally identifying information on its servers.

Aberlink acknowledges that all individuals have the right to access the personal information/data that we maintain about them. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct their query to web@aberlink.com

If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe, not to exceed one week.



Protection of Personally Identifying Information

Aberlink discloses potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (a) need to know that information in order to process it on Aberlink's behalf or to provide services available at Aberlink's website, and (b) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Aberlink will only disclose potentially personally-identifying only when required to do so by law, or when Aberlink believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Aberlink, third parties or the public at large.

If Aberlink holds personally-identifying information, Aberlink may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new services, get your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Aberlink. We expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

Aberlink takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

We also may be required to disclose an individual's personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
