  • We may anonymise data about our site users generally and use it for a range of purposes, including ascertaining the general location of users. This anonymised data is incapable of being used to identify anyone personally.

You confirm that you consent to Us viewing, monitoring, collecting and recording information input by you into our site, and to our dealing with it on an aggregated basis, in a manner that does not identify you or attribute any particular information to you. You also agree to Us collating, compiling, reformatting, reproducing, adapting, translating, arranging, publishing, selling, distributing, dealing with or otherwise commercially exploiting any part of such information or otherwise making it available to any third party on such terms as We deem appropriate.

Who do We give information to?

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless We have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may pass personal information to people who process data for Us. We have contracts with these people and We ensure they are contractually bound to do only what We say they can do with your information. We may pass details about you to our agents and subcontractors to help Us with any of our uses of your data set out in this Website User Privacy Policy; for example, We may use third parties to assist Us with providing the administration for running our site, to analyse data and to provide Us with marketing or customer service assistance.

As stated above, We may commercially exploit any anonymised or aggregated information on the basis that no individuals are identified or identifiable.

Where We store your personal data

We have in place appropriate technical and security measures to prevent unauthorised or unlawful access to or accidental loss of or destruction or damage to your information.

You are responsible for protecting against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer and We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although We will do our best to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

The data that We collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.

Data security

To limit the risk of any personal data being breached, We have put in place appropriate security measures. This includes limiting access to your personal data to our employees. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

All key Rayware Ltd employees have received GDPR training and GDPR awareness has been communicated within the wider team.

Only four members of Rayware staff have passwords to access our website data and these passwords are updated regularly. If a staff member leaves the business all passwords are changed. We do not hold passwords for customer accounts and they require a reset if there is a technical issue.

Our building is secured during business hours by key fobs with each staff member having their own key. Visitors are required to sign in and out at reception during this time. After business hours, the building is secured with a physical key which only senior managers have access to. The building has very high levels of security.

Magento and Operating Systems patches are installed in a timely fashion after they are released.

Our web site(s) are hosted by UK Fast who also fully comply to GDPR.
