Cookies.

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

At BioClavis Ltd., we only use cookies to monitor the performance of our website and to improve user experience. If you are not happy with our use of cookies, then you should either not use the website, delete our cookies once you have visited the site, or browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

External web services.

We may use a number of external web services on the website, mostly to display content within our web pages. For example, to show videos we may use YouTube and Vimeo. This is not an exhaustive or complete list of the services we use, or might use in the future, when embedding content, but these are the most common. We cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not know who you are but are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.

Links to other websites.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Email communications.

Emails we send may contain tracking in them, for example emails with invoices, quotes or purchase orders attached.

Our basis for holding and using your data.

In general we will be relying on what are called “legitimate interests”.  This includes situations where we are in correspondence because either you or we are interested in obtaining professional services from each other or where one of us is the client of the other.

We retain personal information processed by us for as long as is considered necessary for the purpose for which it was collected (including as required by applicable law or regulation).  For example, job applications are generally destroyed 12 months after receipt unless a specific request has been made to keep details on file.  Your data will not be used for any other purpose than that for which you supplied it or in relation to our legal obligations and will not be shared with persons who are not associated with that purpose without your consent.

Data that are not acquired in relation to a specific project will (notwithstanding the above) be regularly reviewed and deleted when it is no longer relevant or of use.

Controlling your personal information.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to BioClavis Ltd. at TLC, QEUH, 1345 Govan Road, Glasgow, G51 4TF or email info@bioclavis.co.uk.
