Statement of Intent

From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information, such as, name and email address in order to receive or use services on the Company website; such services include newsletters and competitions. Upon entering your details in the fields requested, you are enabling the Company to better provide the services you select.

Information on Visitors

During the course of any visit to our site, the pages you see, along with a "cookie", are downloaded to your computer (for further details, refer to "What is a Cookie?" section). The use of "cookies" is common with websites because "cookies" allow the website publisher to do useful things, such as, determine whether the computer and user has previously visited the site. Any information that is supplied by cookies helps us provide you with better service and assists us with analyzing the profile of our visitors. For example, if on a previous visit you viewed the science pages, we might determine this from your "cookie" and highlight the science information on a second visit.

We gather non personal data regarding visitors to our site on our behalf. Details of what we collect may be found in our Terms of Use section.

What is a Cookie?

When you enter a site, your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie. Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, only the computer used. Many sites use this process as users visit their site to track traffic flows.

Cookies themselves only record those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalized services cannot then be provided to that user.

Submitting Personal Information

When you supply any personal information to the Company (e.g. for competitions and request programs) we have legal obligations with the way we treat the data. We must collect the information fairly (see notices on particular web-pages) and advise you as to why we are requesting the information. We must advise you as how we intend use this information and advise you, in advance, if we decide to pass the information on to anyone else. We hold your personal information on our systems only for as long as necessary to ensure that service is running smoothly. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely and in accordance with applicable laws in the State of Delaware, USA.

Access to Your Personal Information

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information the Company holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. Email information requests to the Data Protection Officer @ dpa.officer@www.glytecsystems.com; please note that information requests are processed for a $20.00 fee.

Direct Marketing and User Surveys

As the Company's services expand, there will be more opportunities to enhance the services provided to you. We may also offer you the opportunity to participate in surveys, carried out by the Company or its agents, that help our research into the types of services we offer. The Company will keep a record of information provided by you. Please note, any information provided to the Company will only be used within the Company. Your information will never be supplied to third parties, without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged by law to disclose information.
