Last updated: 05 February 2016
The Website is brought to you by Cohen Davis Ltd. Cohen Davis Ltd and all the individuals who work in our company believe it is important to protect your Personal Data (as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998) and we are committed to giving you a personalised service that meets your needs in a way that also protects your privacy. This policy explains how we may collect Personal Data about you. It also explains some of the security measures we take to protect your Personal Data, and tells you certain things we will do and not do.
When we first obtain Personal Data from you, which often happens when you contact us with an enquiry by telephone or via one of the contact forms on The Website, or when you take a new service or product from us, we will collect and store any information which you give us such as your name, address, email address, phone number and so on. We will usually follow up your enquiry, by a telephone call and by email and always give you the opportunity to very easily tell us if you don't wish to receive further contact from us, including receiving enhancing information or updates. You can do this by calling us or by easily unsubscribing from any of the emails which we might send you.
1. Collecting Information: We may collect Personal Data about you from a number of sources, including the following:

You can also always send us an email (at the address set out below) at any time if you change your mind.
3.2. Please remember that communications over the internet, such as emails and webmails (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered - this is the nature of the internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of Personal Data that is beyond our control.
4. Cookies: When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer. These are called 'cookies'.
These cookies cannot be used to identify you personally and are used to improve services for you, for example through:
-Letting you navigate between pages efficiently
- Enabling a service to recognise your computer so you don't have to give the same information during one task
- Recognising that you have already given a username and password so you don't need to enter it for every web page requested
- Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and that there is enough capacity to ensure they are fast
