This is the privacy notice of Aqualicense Limited, a company registered in Ireland under number 637264. In this document, “we”, “our”, or “us” refers to Aqualicense Limited.

This is a notice to inform you of our policy in respect of all information that we record about you. This policy applies to information that could identify you as well as to information that could not.

We are extremely concerned to protect your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with Irish law and with EU law. If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, do please tell us.

We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our web site immediately.

Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site.

Here is a list of the information we collect from you, either through our website or because you give it to us in some other way, and why it is necessary to collect it:

1.    Business and Personal Information

This includes basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details, and also includes all information given to us in the course of your business with ours, such as information you give us in your capacity as our client. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. The information you give us in this capacity is not used for any other purpose. We expect you to reciprocate this policy.

Your business and personal information is used:

1.1.    to provide you with the services which you request;

1.2.    to verify your identity for security purposes;

1.3.    for marketing our services and products to you.

1.4.    Information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class/group information, for example relating to geographical location or usage of a particular page or service.

We keep information which forms part of our business record for a minimum of six years. That is because we may need it in some way to support a claim or defence in court proceedings. That is also the period within which our tax collecting authorities may demand to know it.

2.   Your Domain Name and E-mail Address

This information is recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. We shall not, under any circumstances, divulge your e-mail address to any person who is not an employee or contractor of ours and who does not need to know it, either generally or specifically. This information is used:

2.1.    to correspond with you or deal with you as you expect;

2.2.    in a collective way, not referable to any particular individual or business, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of our site;

2.3.    to send you news about the services to which you have signed up;

2.4.    to tell you about other of our services.

3.   Website Usage Information

We may use software embedded in our website (such as JavaScript) to collect information about the pages you view and how you have reached them, what you do when you visit a page, the length of time you remain on the page, and how we perform in providing content to you. We do not presently associate such information with an identifiable person.

4.    Financial Information relating to your Credit Cards

This information is never taken by us either through our website or otherwise. At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website of PayPal or some other reputable payment service provider. That page may be dressed in our “livery”, but it is not controlled by us. Our staff and contractors never have access to it.

5.   Information we obtain from Third Parties

Although we do not disclose your personal information to any third party (except as set out in this Notice), we do receive data which is indirectly made up from your personal information, from software services such as Google Analytics and others. No such information is identifiable to you.

6.    Content you provide to us with a view to being used by a Third Party/Third Parties

If you provide information to us with a view to it being read, copied, downloaded, forwarded, or used by other people, we accept no responsibility for what that third party or third parties may do with it. It is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might see your information.
