Privacy, Cookies and the New Data Protection Laws

Privacy Policy

We will never send you unsolicited e-mails nor disclose your details to other companies. If you subscribe to our newsletter you will receive only our newsletter and no other sales communication. If you request a quote or more information we will use your e-mail only to reply to you and will not store it nor add you to any mailing list.

The new European General Data Protection Regulation

Websites that collect data on European citizens will need to comply with strict new rules around protecting data by May 25. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new, EU-wide law that gives greater power to regulators to penalise companies who mishandle personal data or are not transparent about how their business uses it.

In regards of our Insights newsletter mailing list, all email subscribers have to have given us provable opt-in consent or be actively engaged email recipients (opening several newsletters). Our database shows that subscribers since February 2017 gave opt-in consent. We will therefore be asking everyone who subscribed before this date and/or who don't regularly open our newsletter, whether they want to stay on the list. Anyone not replying in the affirmative will be removed from the mailing list.

We have deleted all records of unsubscribed emails, and those that signed up but never confirmed. (Previously these didn't receive our newsletters but still remained in the database.)

To unsubscribe manually from the mailing just click the link at the bottom of the newsletter, or drop us a remove request to insights@retailsensing.com.

Cookies on the Retail Sensing Site

This website uses cookies to allow us to see how the site is used. The cookies cannot identify you. However, if you want to use the site without cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set. The Help function within your browser should tell you how. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. If you continue to use this web site without changing your cookie preferences we'll assume that you consent to the use of cookies.

Cookies do different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently. If a web site doesn't use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site - for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won't recognise you and it won't be able to keep you logged in.

You can use most of our site without cookies, but if you want to log into the Users Area then you need to enable cookies to allow your visit there. We also use cookies to analyse the use of the web site; determing the aggregate page visits for instance. You can disable these cookies and still use the site normally.

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.
