We
at www.judge-smith.com respect your right to privacy and are committed to respecting and protecting it.

Our Privacy Policy informs you how your personal information is used by us. We only use your personal information in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy.

How do we collect information and what is collected?

  1. Routine information collected when anyone accesses our site
      
    1. Log files
      Like most other web sites, we collect statistics about all visitors to our site. Whenever anyone visits a page on our site their IP address and domain name is stored, together with the time and date and the page accessed. This information by itself will not identify you personally. You can only be identified by combining this information with the log files of your Internet Service Provider, which we obviously do not have access to. We do not attempt to capture your email address by stealth.
       
    2. Cookies
      Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer, which our web server sends to your browser. On request, the browser will send the cookie back to the web server. This allows us to customise certain aspects of the site according to your requirements.
       
      You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing your browser settings. You can set 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 cookies, your experience of our site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.
       
  2. Personal information provided by yourself

    On certain pages on our site you may be asked to provide personal information, such as name, email address etc. You are free to choose whether you provide this information or not. Any information you provide will be treated as confidential and will not be used for any purposes other than as stated. We do not share your information with third parties, other than in exceptional circumstances. These circumstances are described below.
      
    If you do not want to provide personal information on our site, you do not have to. However, if you do provide such information it will not be passed to others and will certainly not be used as a marketable commodity by ourselves.
When would we disclose personal information?
  1. Personal information provided to complete an on-line purchase.
     
    In this case your name, address and credit/debit card details will be collected using a secure, encrypted connection (SSL) so that these details are never sent unencrypted over the Internet. The details will be passed only to our bank for authorisation, via our bank's authorised secure service provider. Your details are never stored on our site, or used by ourselves for any other purpose.
      
  2. All other information
     
    www.judge-smith.com will only disclose your personal information when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
    1. Conform with the law or comply with a legal order served on us by a UK court.
    2. Protect and defend the rights or property of the www.judge-smith.com web site, or visitors to our site.
    3. Identify persons who are violating the law or the rights of third parties.
    4. Cooperate with the investigations of alleged unlawful activities by legally authorised agencies.
