Relevant Legislation

Along with our business and internal IT systems, this website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:

This site’s compliance with the legislation listed above, means that this site is likely compliant with the data protection and user privacy legislation set out by many other countries and territories as well.


Personal Information that this website collects

This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:

Site visitation tracking

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third party data processor.

GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides. Our website uses the analytics.js implementation of GA.

Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

Contact forms and email links

Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our Contact us page or an email link, that information will be sent to us via either SMTP or via a third party data processor. If information is sent via a third party data processor, it is not stored by them and is only used during transmission of that information to us. We may store the information within our CRM or Email marketing system. If the information is stored within our email marketing system, you will only be sent transactional emails unless you have subscribed to our newsletter.

Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices. A record of form submissions is stored on an encrypted, secure server for audit purposes and as a backup in case of internal system failures.

Email Newsletter

If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to Force24 who provide us with email marketing services. We consider Force24 to be a third party data processor (see below).

Your email address will remain within Force24's database for as long as we continue to use Force24's services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.

We may use email marketing systems for transactional emails (ie information that you will receive in relation to products and services that you have purchased from Cirrus).

If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.

While your email address remains within the Force24 database, you will receive periodic newsletter-style emails where you have signed up to do so.

We may also contact you with other relevant information such as product updates or software releases that are pertinent to the products or services that you have purchased from us or from our distributors.

Third party data processors

We use a number of third parties to process personal data on our behalf. These third parties have been carefully chosen and all of them comply with the legislation set out above.
