Your privacy on baltoncp.com
This website is managed by Balton CP. The purpose of baltoncp.com is to educate, inform and provide service to consumers and businesses in Africa. We want you to feel secure when visiting our website and are dedicated to maintaining your privacy when doing so.
The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit to us.
What information do we gather?
Information on baltoncp.com is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of baltoncp.com).
An example of information we collect indirectly is through our website access logs. When you access baltoncp.com, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our website access logs. We also include Google Analytics on most of our web-pages. Google is an international company that has stringent and fully secure facilities which ensure your security. You can read more about Google Analytics here http://www.google.com/analytics/tos.html.
We also collect information when you willingly submit it to us. Throughout our site, we provide the opportunity to contact us for more information or a quotation. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or other device by websites that you visit across the web. They are widely used (by the majority of websites) in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site such as how people are using it.
The table below explains the cookies we use and why.

||This cookie is essential for the online notification form – the form that data controllers can use to notify with the ICO – to operate. It is set only for those people using the form. This cookie is deleted when you close your browser.
|These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site.

Will we share this with outside parties?
We will never share any information you have provided to us to any 3rd party company, organisation or individual. We may, from time to time, publish our visitor volume statistics or other visitor count metrics. However, in these cases, they will relate to indirectly gathered log information and not personal or privileged data.

We do not actively seek sensitive or personal data through our website. If a visitor voluntarily sends us sensitive or personal data through our website, we will destroy it once discovered.
