Rycote Microphone Windshields Limited

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets out the terms on which Rycote Microphone Windshields Limited (“Rycote” or “we” or “our”), collect, process and handle personal data. Rycote, which is registered under the Data Protection Act 1988 with the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, processes personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy outlines the types of information we gather from you and your use of our services; how we use it; with whom we share it; the means by which we keep it secure; and the choices you have about the information you choose to share with us.

Personal information we collect

You may access the Site without providing any data at all. However, to subscribe for certain services, you may be required to provide certain data, some of which may be personal data. Amongst other things, we may ask you for your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.

Rycote is the data controller of your personal data and acts as data processor of your personal data.

Personal information – why we collect it

Rycote may collect, store and process certain personal information to provide you with information relating to our products services; to perform marketing and research related activities; to respond to enquiries and for other internal record keeping purposes. In addition, we may from time to time review your usage of the site in order to access how we can improve our services.

Personal information – how we collect it

The personal information we collect may be captured from a variety of sources. These sources include, but are not limited to:

  • voluntary submissions (e.g. requests for information on our products, distributors or dealers); and
  • registrations to receive our eNewsletters.

Use and access to your personal information by others

As a general rule, we will not make the personal information gathered from use of the Site or our services available to anyone outside Rycote, except as instructed by you or where required or permitted by law. Whenever you are required to submit data, you will be given options to restrict our use of that data. That may include you preventing our use of the data for direct marketing purposes and preventing us sharing the data with third parties. Please note, however, that there are a number of exceptions to this policy. Firstly, if we use third party service providers, those service providers may have access to your personal information to perform contractually specified services on our behalf. Secondly, if you indicate that you are interested in receiving information about a particular third party’s products or services, or you opt to receive certain products or services through us, we may provide your personal information to that third party for the purposes of fulfilling your request(s). With respect to third party providers of products or services, Rycote contractually requires that all personal information be kept confidential. Additionally, Rycote takes reasonable steps to ensure that third parties receiving information about you at your request maintain the confidentiality of that information.

We collect, store and process your personal information in order that we can administer your subscription to our services. We may also use your personal information to send you information about other products and services offered by Rycote. However, we will only retain data for so long as is reasonably necessary for the above purposes and you will always have the right to unsubscribe from the services we offer.

Links to other websites

We may provide links to one or more other third party websites. We encourage you to read the individual privacy policies of those sites before providing any of your personal information to them.

Protection of your personal information

We put reasonable security measures in place against unauthorised access to, or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of personal information. Those measures include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorised access to systems where we store personal data.

Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorised individuals have access to the information provided.

Accuracy of your personal information

You are responsible for checking to ensure that any personal information you provide to us is updated and correct.
