Children’s data

Use of cookies
Cookies are small pieces of text information sent to your browser when visiting a website. We may use cookies to store information about your visit and enhance the functionality of your visit, no personal information or information that could be used to identify individuals are held in these cookies.

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)
We use CCTV equipment to provide a safer, more secure environment for staff and to prevent vandalism and theft. It is used for:
Monitoring the security of our premises.

Access to the CCTV recorded footage is limited to designated staff and other authorised personnel (including police) with a legitimate reason to view and/or otherwise use the captured footage, including the provision of evidence in support of prosecution of criminal or illegal behaviour.

As the recording system records digital images, any CCTV images that are held on the hard drive of a PC are deleted and overwritten on a recycling basis.  However, where a law enforcement agency is investigating a crime or information is required for an insurance claim, images may need to be retained for a longer period.

4. Security of your personal Information

Electronic Devices Ltd 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 unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in facilities to which access is limited.

We will only use and store your data for as long as it is required and for the purposes it was collected. The period of retention depends on the information being held, what it is being used for and in some cases, legal requirements (for example product traceability which we are legally required to keep for 10 years).  When we no longer need to store your data we will always dispose of it securely.

To ensure we provide you with the best possible service it is important we keep the data we hold on you up-to-date. You may change any of the basic information we keep about you at any time by sending us an email to privacy@electronic-devices.co.uk.

Disclosing information to THIRD parties?
We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to other companies.

We do not disclose personal data to any third parties or external organisations,  unless we are legally and/or contractually required to do so, e.g. Pension Companies,  by a law enforcement agency legitimately exercising a power or if compelled by an order of the Court.

Links to third party websites
Pages on the Electronic Devices website include links to third party websites that we believe might be of interest to our website visitors.
