What personal information about customers does Quentor gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your online experience with Quentor and your visit to our Online Shop.
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of the site’s features. From time to time, we may use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our site and online shop and communicating with you.
All credit card numbers are encrypted in the software when the order is placed using 128-bit encryption by the financial institutions we use (e.g. SagePay) and no information is held by us.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "Cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses quentor.com Scroll to the bottom of this page to see examples of the information we receive. A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalised experience at quentor.com, if we cannot recognise you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Quentor, if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your account to reflect this by selecting unsubscribe in the newsletter.
Information from Other Sources:
For reasons such as improving the personalisation of our service (for example, providing better product recommendations or special offers that we think will interest you), we might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. We also sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.
What about Cookies?
Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behaviour information. The information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity. For further information about cookies visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org. You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. [However, in a few cases some of our website features may not function if you remove cookies from your browser.]
Does Quentor Ltd share the information it receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only with the subsidiaries Quentor Ltd controls and as described below.
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analysing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purpose.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that QuentorLtd, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of Quentor Ltd and Others:
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Quentor Ltd, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
With Your Consent:
Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
What information can I access?
Quentor Ltd gives you access to the following information about you for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. This list will change as our Web site evolves.
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such, Quentor.com features an automatic login and permanent shopping carts. You can add or update certain information on pages such as those listed in the "My Account" pages. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your account to reflect this in the newsletter.
