How does TSG Marine collect, store, process and transmit your data?

We store and process the personal data that you provide. We use your data for the purpose of handling your enquiry. We also use your data for providing our services, for evaluation and promotional purposes, and for supplying other information addressed to you, in particular information about products and services, newsletters, email-marketing, surveys and making telephone contact, if you have given your consent.

We also store your data for data security purposes and to optimise the website. This includes analyses of the data for statistical purposes in anonymised form.

What are log files?

A log file contains an automatic record of all or selected activities on a computer system. Log files are mainly used in process control and automation. Log files for databases record changes in the database of correctly completed transactions. This enables the current data to be restored in the event of an error (e.g. system crash). Log files are also created by web servers. They log the following (and other) information: address of the accessing computer, authentication fields, date and time of access, access method and content of the HTML access, status code of the web server, information about the browser being used, and the operating system of the client.

Each time a user accesses the TSG Marine website and every time a file is opened, data about this process is automatically saved in log files stored on our servers.

How long will my data be kept?

TSG Marine stores the personal data the you provide to us only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which this data was provided, or for as long as this is required by law.

For any CVs that are submitted to TSG Marine for the purposes of prospective employment, we retain these for a period of no longer than three months, keeping these under secure storage, we do not share your details unless permission has been expressly provided.

What are cookies and web beacons?

TSG Marine collects information about the visitors to its website and marketing campaigns in order to improve its web pages. We use various types of cookies and web beacons to do this. A web server can use a cookie to store text information (e.g. a unique ID) on the user’s PC. As a rule, cookies are used to recognise users when they revisit our website. The cookie is either sent from the web server to the browser or is created with client-side scripting (such as JavaScript). The cookie information is stored locally on your computer and is usually valid for a limited period.

Websites with Flash media write user-specific data on the user’s computer and read them again later.

These files are called Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects (LSO). They are not managed by the web browser itself, but by its respective Flash Player plugin.

Flash cookies are subject to the same rules as conventional cookies. They can be read only by the website that initiated storage of the Flash cookie. However, the amount of information they can store is much greater.

Browsers usually offer a wide range of settings to control the use of cookies. So you can set your browser not to store cookies, or restrict the acceptance of cookies to certain websites. Another option is to set your browser so that it notifies you as soon as a cookie is sent.

What tools does TSG Marine use for analysis and marketing?

When you use our website, data is collected automatically. This information is important for us in analysing the interest in the content of our site, and improving our offerings. To this end we use a range of different data collection systems as web analysis tools including Google Analytics. Legal notices can be found as follows: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html and are used as per UK law permit.
