GPAcomparison Limited is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This privacy policy explains how we use the information we collect about you, how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of that information and procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.

1 The information we collect and how we use it

When you register for our service we need to know your name, organisation name, job title, work telephone contact number, and e-mail address.

We gather this information to allow us to process your registration and ensure that your shortlisted vendors are able to be in contact with you.

We may also use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop the website and our services and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify any individual.

From time to time, we may provide your information to our customer service agencies for research and analysis purposes so that we can monitor and improve the services we provide. We or our agents and sub-contractors may contact you by e-mail or telephone to ask you for your feedback and comments on our services.

2. Our use of cookies and other information gathering technologies

2.1 Like many other commercial sites we may use cookies. A cookie is a text file in the browser directory of your computer's hard drive. Any website other than the one that set up the cookie cannot read the cookie. Cookies will enable our site to recognise personally identifiable information you have voluntarily given us and we may use it to present you with custom web pages

2.2 You must have cookies enabled if you wish to register and login to get and save details.

2.3 Most browsers allow you to turn off the cookie function. If you want to know how to do this, please look at the help menu on your browser. As described above, this will restrict the services you can use.

3. How we protect your information

3.1 The internet is not a secure medium. However we have put in place various security procedures as set out in this policy.

3.2 We use 128-bit secure encryption through a secure socket layer. This is the Internet standard for the secure transmission of data. When you register or login to get a quote, the browser window will become secure to protect your information. You know this window is secure because your browser will show a padlock or key at the bottom right hand side of your screen. (Example)

3.3 If the pages are inactive (by this we mean you choose not to select any of the buttons or links on the page) for longer than 30 minutes we will log you out of this area for your security.

3.4 You should not use the website in any way that causes or is likely to cause access to be interrupted or impaired in any way, and you acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for electronic communications sent from your computer.

3.5 We also keep your information confidential. Our internal procedures cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.

3.6 You may sometimes be targeted by fraudsters. They send bogus emails requesting that you provide your personal security details in order to reactivate your account, verify an email address, or some other reason. Phishers attack trusted business's names to make users believe they are genuine, and then fraudulently use your name and the stolen information. We will never ask you to reveal more detail than you require to access our website and its services.

Continued use of the service will signify that you agree to any such changes.

Owing to the global nature of the Internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy. However, we have taken the steps outlined above to try to improve the security of your information. By submitting your information you consent to these transfers.
