1. Introduction

This policy covers the use of personal information that Fowler's collects when you use fowlers.co.uk. The policy also gives you information about cookies; Fowlers and use of cookies; and how you may reject such cookies.

From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to communicate with Fowlers Motorcycles.

By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Fowlers and its service providers to provide you with the services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. When using your personal information Fowlers will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.

2. Visitor Information

During the course of any visit to fowlers.co.uk, the pages you see, along with a short text file called a 'cookie', are downloaded to your computer. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

Information supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better online user experience and assist us to analyse the profile of our visitors. We use cookies to remember if you prefer to see fowlers.co.uk in larger text, default or high contrast. So we only use cookies to make our web site more accessible and consistent to users.

3. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website's computer and stored on your computer's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

Cookies record information about your online preferences. 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, of course, means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the fowlers.co.uk features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

For further information on cookies please visit http://www.aboutcookies.org.

4. Use and storage of your personal information

In general, any information you provide to Fowlers will only be used within Fowlers and by its agents and service providers. Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged or permitted by law. Also, if you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to fowlers.co.uk or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on fowlers.co.uk, Fowlers Motorcycles can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.

5. Users 16 and under

If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission beforehand whenever you provide personal information to the Fowler's website. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
