Our Privacy Policy

Introduction

Gear Pump Manufacturing (GPM) respects privacy and is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to this site. GPM seeks to employ best practice when it comes to the collection and processing of personal information. A brief summary of how we manage personal information is set out in this policy.

Type of Information Collected

Every computer connected to the internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” (IP address). When a visitor requests a page from a web site, the web server may record that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We may use this information to examine traffic in aggregate.

From time to time we may save a “cookie” on your computer. A cookie is a small text file sent from our web server that is saved on your hard drive via your internet browser. A cookie cannot read data from your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We may use cookies to identify which areas of the site you have visited in order to monitor and improve our site or to improve your user experience of the site. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our site and other web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

In order to fulfil certain services that can be requested through this site we may need your email address and possibly your postal address. This information, if provided by you, will remain confidential and will not be passed on to anyone outside of GPM or GPM’s distributors without your prior consent. Sharing with GPM’s distributors will only be done to service your business in response to a request from you.

Use of Personal Information

Data is held only as long as necessary. If you request that we send you a copy of a document your details will be deleted or depersonalised once the information has been posted to you.

Use and Disclosure

We will only use or disclose your personal information for the purpose for which it was collected unless:

  •   you have consented to its further use or disclosure;
  •   you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose it in such a way; or
  •   we are required by law or are otherwise compelled to disclose such information.

Quality and Security

We make every effort to ensure the security of personal information we hold. We try to ensure that personal information we collect, disclose and use is complete and accurate.
