Privacy Policy

ABSCENT-MINDED Import/Export & Consulting and its content and technology providers (“Abscent Europe”) takes your privacy very seriously. This privacy policy describes how we will use and why we obtain, store and process data which can identify you.

We may update this policy from time to time and will indicate on abscent.eu and other websites operated by Abscent Europe (collectively, “Abscent Europe Websites”) when changes have been made.

By using this website you are agreeing to be bound by this policy.

If you are worried about privacy on the internet, our über-geeky hostmaster recommends you install Ghostery into your browser to track and block all beacons and trackers (some are useful, others malignant); for more anonymous surfing the use of a VPN like NordVPN may help.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Information is collected from you when you register with us, or when you contribute to or use some of the features on the Abscent Europe Websites. The information we collect is clearly set out on the web page on which we collect it. In addition, we may collect your IP address and/or use cookies to identify you and track your activity (unless you configure your web browser not to accept them, in which case you may not be able to use this website).

WHY WE COLLECT IT

In certain circumstances we may need to disclose information about you if you breach this privacy policy or if you breach the Terms. We may also disclose or access your account if required to do so by law or by any Governmental body.

SECURITY

Keeping information about you secure is very important to us and certain sections of the Abscent Europe Websites may encrypt data using secure server software (SSL) or a comparable standard. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.

THIRD PARTY LINKS

We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from our website and we recommend that you check the policy of each site you visit and contact its owner or operator if you have any concerns or questions.

TRANSFERRING YOUR INFORMATION OUTSIDE OF EUROPE

As far as possible all your information stays in the EU. As part of the services we offer to you through this website, the information you provide may be transferred to countries outside the EU. By way of example, this may happen if any of our services or any of our service providers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU, or in order to provide you with services whilst you are personally outside the EU. In all such instances we will take steps with the aim of ensuring your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this privacy policy.
