We take your privacy seriously and want you to understand our practices with respect to the handling of your personal data. This privacy statement explains how we do this

Privacy Policy

When we collect your personal data

If you decide to contact us or make use of personalised services (e.g. by subscribing to a newsletter or filling in a form on our site), then you will be asked to submit the limited personal data which is necessary for us to provide that service or handle your query. This is completely voluntary.

If you ask us to send you newsletters or other communications, we rely on your active consent to do so. You may opt-out of receiving these communications at any time.

If any form which collects your personal data allows you to voluntarily provide additional information, we seek this information because we think it will help us to give you a better-quality service. You do not have to provide such information if you do not wish to do so.

We also collect personal data from cookies, which we explain more about in our cookie policy.

Who do we share your personal data with and where does it go?

Any transfer of personal data to this site will be secured by encryption. Fotech may disclose your personal data to other bp entities located around the world.

Where this is the case, your personal data shall remain at all-time protected under bp comprehensive, flexible, and global compliance framework which implements appropriate measures and safeguards (including EU standard contractual clauses) to ensure that your personal information is protected in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

We also use the services of third-party service providers to host our webcasts and offer technical support. Any third-party provider we appoint must act in accordance with our written instructions when processing your personal data and must protect your personal data in line with the contractually required security measures.

Where we store or transfer your personal data to a third-party provider based outside the European Economic Area, we take steps to ensure your personal data is protected.

We have the right to disclose your personal data as required by law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator or any other legal process served on Fotech. If there is a takeover, sale or purchase of our business, we may disclose your personal data to the new (or prospective) owner of the business.

How long do we keep your information?

We will only hold your information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, before making it non-identifiable or deleting it.

If you choose to unsubscribe from a service, we may keep a ‘suppression list’ containing your details so we know you have unsubscribed.

Your rights, complaints and how to contact us

You have the right to access your personal data and ask for it to be rectified or deleted at any later time.

If you have questions or concerns relating to the handling of your personal data, please get in touch with us at [email protected]

Depending on where you are, you may also have the right to raise a privacy concern with the Data Protection Authority established in the relevant country. However, please consider using Fotech’s internal complaint resolution mechanism first by using the contact address set out above.

Third-party websites we link to

Our website may contain links to third-party sites. This privacy statement does not apply to those third-party sites.

We recommend that you read the privacy statements of any other sites that you visit as we cannot accept responsibility for the privacy practices of these sites which may be different to ours.

Use of any Hyperlink and third-party views
Neither we nor any of our subsidiaries are responsible for the content of any other website, including any website through which you may have gained access to our website or to which you may gain access from our website. We do not accept any liability in connection with any such sites or links.

Where we provide a hyperlink to a third party's website, we do so because we believe in good faith that such a website contains or may contain material that is relevant to that on our website. Such a hyperlink does not signify that Fotech or any member of Fotech have reviewed or approve of the connected third party's website or its contents - indeed in certain instances, a hyperlink may connect you to a third party's website containing views contradictory to those expressed on our website or otherwise held by Fotech.

Any views or opinions of third parties are the personal views of the individuals or organisations that provided them and do not necessarily reflect the opinion or views of Fotech or any member of Fotech Group Limited.

Cookie Policy

On your first visit to this site, you were asked (by a notification banner) if you would like to accept the described uses of cookies and similar technologies.

To learn about what cookies and similar technologies are, we recommend that you visit the following third-party website: www.allaboutcookies.org.

Like many websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes. Some cookies are necessary for the functionality of the site, others log data about your device hardware and your interaction with our site. It is our policy to use cookies and tracking technologies only with the consent of the users of the digital services we provide, except where the use of cookies or tracking technologies is strictly necessary for the use of a service.

On this website we use:

Functional cookies

These cookies are required for basic site functionality and are therefore always enabled. For instance, when you exit our cookie banner a cookie is dropped on your device reminding your browser not to re-serve this pop-up box when you later visit this site.

Performance cookies

The information the cookies gather is used to help us customise the website for our users.

Analytics

Where you have permitted the use of performance cookies, we use a web analytics tool provided by Google to collect statistical information about how visitors use and interact with our site.

The cookies collect information about -

  • Your IP Address
  • Preferred language
  • The number of visitors to our site,
  • The pages or content with the most traffic,
  • Approximately where in the world you are visiting the site from,
  • How you have found our site e.g. from a direct search; link to a third-party site; or link in one of our emails.

We use this aggregated statistical information to help improve the site, for instance by prioritising updates of the most read content or the most used functionality. Google Analytics cookies may retain information for up to two years. For more information about Google Analytics services, please click here:

Content testing

If we are working on updates to our site, we occasionally display original content to some visitors and alternate content to other visitors to help us assess which version best optimises user experience. When we do this, we drop a cookie on your device to remember which version of the page you were served.

Surveys

We sometimes ask our visitors to complete optional surveys about our site or our goods and services. When we do this, we drop a cookie to remember not to send you the same survey again if you later re-visit our site.

Advertising and campaign cookies

  • Social media and other advertising cookies

Sometimes we pair up with social media partners such as Facebook or with online advertising platforms who drop cookies on your device when you visit our site to remember that you have looked at our site/expressed an interest in our products ("Third-party cookies"). This means that when you later visit these third-party sites or visit a site that has agreed to host adverts for our online advertising platform, the adverts displayed to you are more tailored to your apparent interests. If you click on these adverts, they will re-direct you back to our site.

Our third-party partners may pass us information about the total number of views, shares, and click-throughs these adverts have received. The third parties’ use of your information, including their deployment of cookies and tracking technologies, is subject to the third party’s privacy policy, not ours.

  • Conversion tracking

In order to see how successful our marketing campaigns or other website goals are performing, we sometimes use conversion pixels, which fire a short line of code to tell us when you have clicked on a particular button on our website or reached a particular page (e.g. a thank you page once you have completed the procedure for subscribing to one of our services or have completed one of our forms).
Unless otherwise specified the above cookies remain when you close your browser.

Changes to the Privacy Statement and Cookie Policy

We may update this privacy statement from time to time and recommend that you revisit it on occasion to see the latest version.
