Please read the following Privacy, Security and Cookie Policy to understand how we use and protect the information that you provide to us. We may make changes to this Policy from time to time and you should check the web page periodically for updates. Use of the website will be deemed an acceptance of this Policy at that time.

Information that we collect from you

When you contact Dolphin Computer Access, or order products or services from us, you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself including your name, contact details and credit or debit card information. We may also collect information about your usage of our products for the purposes of product and service improvement, targeted marketing messages and combating software piracy. If you write to us by email, post or via the website we may hold information from those messages in order to handle your request most effectively. The details we hold will be accurate and correct. We may record phone calls for training and quality purposes. If you authorise anyone to talk to us on your behalf about your Dolphin products, you must have their permission, as we will store their name and contact details alongside yours and may contact them directly. To check the information we hold about you please contact us. If you find any inaccuracies we will delete or correct it promptly.

Email spam

We do not tolerate email spam and will never pass your details onto any third party for that purpose. We do not send emails to individuals who have asked to opt-out of email correspondence from us. For your convenience you can withdraw consent for us to email you at any time by using the 'unsubscribe' facility at the bottom of emails from us; if you wish to be removed from future mailings please contact us.

Use of your information

Your information will enable us to deal efficiently with any requests you submit to us and to supply the goods or services you have requested. It will also enable us to bill you and to contact you where necessary concerning your orders. We will also use and analyse the information we collect so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our products and services.

In particular, we may use your information to contact you for your views on our products and services and to notify you occasionally about important changes, developments, products, services and promotions which may be of interest to you. If you have authorised anyone to talk to us on your behalf about your Dolphin products we may contact them with relevant information to help them to help you.

We may contact you by email, post, telephone or fax. If you change your mind about being contacted in the future, please contact us. We may also record the name and version of your software, together with any hardware identification codes generated by installation of the software, for the purposes of product activation and technical support. In addition, at your request and with your permission and active participation, we may also access information held on your computer via our Remote Support service for the purposes of diagnosing and resolving technical issues. Any information viewed will only be used by our company for this purpose and no information will be downloaded from your machine at any time during this process.

Disclosure of your information

The information you provide to us will be held securely on our computers in the UK and may be accessed by or given to our staff working outside the UK and third parties who act for us for the purposes set out in this Policy or for other purposes approved by you. Those parties process information, fulfil and deliver orders, process credit/debit card payments and provide dealer/support services on our behalf. They may contact you by post, telephone or fax, as well as by e-mail. If you change your mind about being contacted, please contact us.

Finally, if our business enters into a joint venture with or is sold to or merged with another business entity, your information may be disclosed to our new business partners or owners. Countries outside the European Economic Area do not always have strong data protection laws. However, we will always take steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties in accordance with this policy. Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.
