Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

Home Privacy Policy

At Measurement Solutions we ensure we meet our legal obligations as laid down by the Data Protection Act 1998

Measurement Solutions Limited (“MSL”) may operate several websites including www.measurement-solutions.co.uk. It is MSL’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

 

WEBSITE VISITORS

Like most website operators, MSL collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MSL’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MSL’s visitors use its website. From time to time MSL may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

MSL also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. MSL does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

 

GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

Certain visitors to MSL’s websites choose to interact with MSL in ways that require MSL to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MSL gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

 

AGGREGATED STATISTICS

MSL may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MSL may monitor the most popular blogs on the MSL website. MSL may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MSL does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

 

PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

MSL discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on MSL’s behalf or to provide services available at MSL’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using MSL’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

MSL will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, MSL discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when MSL believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MSL, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of a MSL website and have supplied your email address, MSL may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with MSL, our products and technical information that is directly relevant to our market sectors.

We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. MSL takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
