What information do we collect? How do we use it?

For each visitor to our website, our Web server automatically recognises only the consumer's domain name, but not the email address. We collect only the domain name of visitors to our website and aggregate information on what pages consumers visit and information volunteered by the consumer - such as survey information and site registrations. The information we collect is used for internal review and is then discarded. It is used to improve the content of our website and not shared with other organisations for commercial purposes. If you supply us with your email or postal address online you will only receive the information for which you provided us with your address. Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers online may be contacted by telephone by us with information regarding orders they have placed online. If you place an online order, we need to know your name, email address, postal address and, if applicable, credit card number and expiry date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to keep you informed of the status of your order.

What about "cookies"?

WCRF International may provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, orders, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will not include any personal information. We will only disclose personal information if required to do so by law.

Right to access

You have a right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you (for which we may charge a small fee) and to have any inaccuracies corrected.

In summary
