We collect only personally identifiable information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors to Essentially Precise’s website. Essentially Precise receives limited identifiable information, such as name, title, company address, email address, and telephone and fax numbers, from website visitors.

It is Essentially Precise’s policy to limit the information collected to only the minimum information required to complete a visitor’s request. In any instance where non-mandatory information is sought, the website visitor will be notified of this at the point of collection.
When a visitor makes a purchase online we will collect order information and a customer’s credit card information, where applicable, in order to facilitate delivery and payment for the product and/or services. Visitor’s credit card information will only be collected and stored by our third party payment gateway service provider.
Visitors are also able to send email and/or requests through the site. Their messages will contain the user’s screen name and email address, as well as any additional information the user may wish to include in the message. Because we use the website as a tool to provide customer service and product support, a visit to the website may also result in the user sending personal information to an individual within Essentially Precise.

If there is an instance where such information may be shared, the visitor will be asked for permission beforehand.

Disclosure of Personal Information
Essentially Precise websites do not collect or compile personally identifying information for dissemination or sale to outside parties for consumer marketing purposes, or host mailings on behalf of third parties. There may be situations where the law requires us to disclose your personal information. It may also be necessary for us to disclose or transfer your personal information to suppliers, affiliates or agents in order to provide you with our services. Essentially Precise sometimes use other companies to perform certain business-related functions, for example email marketing, digital marketing technology, interactive campaign management etc. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. To the extent that that third party requires your information to enable Essentially Precise to provide you with our services, or perform business-related functions on our behalf, you hereby consent to Essentially Precise sharing your personal information with such third parties.
For those users who make purchases at our website, we, through our third-party payment processor, may collect IP address, browser version and other information about the software and hardware resident on the computer used to make the purchase. This information is passed on to and used by our third-party payment processor solely for purposes of authentication and security. By making a purchase at our website you authorize such collection and use.
Some of the information we receive is not retained. Contact information about visitors (such as information generated though registration for access to areas on the site) will be kept as long as the information is required to completely service the contact request or until a user requests that we delete that information. Mailing list information, discussion posts and email are kept for only the period of time considered reasonable to facilitate the visitor’s requests.
Mobile numbers uploaded for sending SMS will be retained for a period of up to 6 months for providing reports to our customers. Essentially Precise will remove these data at any time without any notification to the end user. It is the responsibility of the user to take regular backup of the reports that are provided on our system.
