      2.1 Why we collect personal information

      Aquatec Equipment collects personal information about you:

      • because you have provided it to us, for instance if you contact us to ask us questions about our products, obtain a quote or provide feedback;
      • because we need it to provide a product or service that you have requested, for instance, if you subscribe to an email list or loyalty program, enter a competition, or purchase products from Aquatec Equipment;
      • because we would like to improve our services, for instance through the collection and analysis of statistical and research data and use of cookies (see below);
      • because you work for us, or apply to us for a job, or work experience;
      • for purposes directly related to any of the above.

        2.2 How we use your personal information

        Aquatec Equipment will primarily use your information to:

        1. Contact you to discuss products and services;
        2. Provide products to you which have been requested
        3. Provide you with information about or support for Aquatec Equipment products or services;
        4. Advise you of any new matters concerning your product or service from Aquatec Equipment;
        5. Respond to your email in the event that you send us an email message.

        Aquatec Equipment may also use your information to update you about new products or services we offer. You will be able to opt-out of direct marketing at any time if you so choose.

        2.3 How we collect information

        Broadly, there are two types of information or data we collect:

        Information that you specifically give us

        For example, you may provide information about yourself by filling in a form or when you request information about a product or service. This type of information may include your name, job title, company information and address. The information that you give us may be:

        • Personal information that is required. In some instances, you must provide personal information if you wish to use a particular service or purchase a particular product. For example, we need to know your address in order to deliver products to you.
        • Personal information that is optional. You may choose to provide some personal information which is not required but is directly related to Aquatec Equipment’s functions or activities. Usually this type of information will enable Aquatec Equipment to improve or broaden the products and services we can offer you. If you choose not to provide this optional information, we may still be able to offer you the service, but perhaps with fewer options than if you had provided the optional information. If you provide us with unsolicited information that we do not require or which is not directly related to our functions or activities, we may be required to destroy or de-identify that information, provided it is lawful and reasonable to do so.
        • Permissions. Sometimes you will be asked to confirm that you agree to a particular activity. For example, you may need to expressly agree that you would like to receive a newsletter or to confirm that you agree to the terms and conditions of a competition.

        You may be able to make changes to the information you provided us (for example, if you change your email address) or withdraw the permission you gave us for a particular service in certain circumstances. We will make it clear how you do that at the time you provide the information or upon request.

        Data we collect that tracks your activity

        Aquatec Equipment automatically gathers information to monitor the use of our website, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our website.

        This information helps us improve our services and help us identify if there are any problems with our services that need fixing. Most of the data we collect is aggregated, and this information is effectively anonymous to us.

        This data is usually collected using ‘cookies’. ‘Cookies’ are small files that are stored on your browser. Further information about Aquatec Equipment’s use of cookies is provided below.

Similarly, if you use our email newsletters we may collect data about the mailings you open and the links you click on from that newsletter.

        Though surveys usually collect aggregate data, we will make it clear to you if any survey information is being collected in a way that could personally identify you.
