We‘d like to take this opportunity to explain to you the standard guidelines that we apply to the processing of personal data.

Data that we collect

You can use almost the entirety of our web site without ever having to supply us with personal data. It is only the contact us form located on our web site that requires you to enter personal data in order for us to contact you.

Technical access data

Technical access data is information regarding the IP address and the operating system that are in use, the domain name of the web site that acts as a platform for a visit to our own web site, the average duration of a visit to our web site, and the pages called from our web site. This data is sent to our web server when individual internet pages are called by your internet browser.

We also add cookies to some areas of our web site.

 Protecting the privacy of children who use the internet

Personal data pertaining to children are not knowingly gathered or used in any way. We are not generally aware of the age of the user of our websites. We have, however, taken no specific steps to give special protection to such data.

Children should not send any personal data to OQEMA PLC without the express permission of parents or a person acting in loco parentis.

 Information, changes and deletions with respect to your data

Pursuant to the applicable legal regulations, you are entitled to query us in writing at any time as to which (if any) of your personal data we are currently archiving. We will then send you a letter containing the information requested. Please address your inquiry to the data protection officer. You may also arrange with him to have changes made in your data or to have such data deleted.

Any data provided by you to OQEMA PLC will be protected by suitable technical and organizational mechanisms against adventitious or intentional manipulation, loss or destruction, access by unauthorized persons, and against unauthorized disclosure to third parties.
