Crown Iron Works takes the privacy of all its users and customers very seriously, and takes great care with user and customer information. This Privacy Statement outlines how your personal information is treated and forms part of the Terms and Conditions of this site. We may occasionally modify our Privacy Statement, and when this happens, we will notify you via our homepage.
In order to provide our users and customers with an individually tailored range of services, we may collect certain specific personal information from our websites, from telephone responses, or from written information sent to us. We may, for example, keep a record of your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, gender, and preferences. We may also use such data to communicate with you, for record keeping purposes, and in aggregate (and therefore anonymously) for market research purposes, to track activity on our web sites, to publish trends or to improve usefulness and content.
Any personal data relating to you will only be used and recorded by us in accordance with current data protection legislation and this Privacy Statement.
Unless you have voluntarily given us the information, or we have legally permitted reasons for processing it without your consent, we will always ask for your explicit consent if we need to process any data categorized as "sensitive" by the Data Protection Act, 1998:
Information as to the racial or ethnic origin of the data subject;
Their religious beliefs or other beliefs of a similar nature;
Their political opinions;
Whether they are a member of a Trade Union;
Their physical or mental health or condition;
Their sexual life;
The commission or alleged commission by them of any offence, or
Any proceedings for any offence committed or alleged to have been committed by them, the disposal of such proceedings or the sentence of any court in such proceedings."
We do not presently sell, rent or trade your personal information, but reserve the right to do so in the future. We share such information with associated companies whose products or services may be of interest to you. In addition, we may from time to time work together with carefully selected third party companies in order to provide a wider range of offerings than would otherwise be possible.
Because the Internet is an international medium, these companies may be both inside and outside the American Economic area. We will endeavor to ensure there is adequate and appropriate protection for any personal data transferred outside the United States. In the unlikely event that this website and the customer data relating to it are sold to another data controller, we will endeavor to ensure that your rights and freedoms in respect of the processing of your personal data are adequately and appropriately protected.
We reserve the right to pass on your personal information to any law enforcement agencies requesting it in connection with the commission of any offence, once we are reasonably satisfied as to the circumstances surrounding the request.
We take every precaution to protect your personal information.
Our websites may contain links to other websites, and you should be aware that we are clearly not responsible for the privacy practices on other sites. We recommend that you individually check the privacy statements of each and every other website that you visit.
Surveys and User Groups
We always aim to improve the services we offer. As a result we occasionally canvass our customers using surveys. Participation in surveys is voluntary, and you are under no obligation to reply to any survey you might receive from us. Should you choose to do so, we will treat the information you provide with the same high standard of care as all other customer information.
