2. Discussion Forums and Chat Rooms
Any information provided while visiting the blogs, discussion forums, or chat rooms on the site is available to others. We strongly discourage posting or discussing sensitive, personal or corporate information on these mediums because they are open to others.
3. Site Tracking
We use tracking software to monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage. This helps us develop the design and layout of the site to better meet the needs of visitors to retrolux.com. This software does not enable us to capture any identifying information.
4. Security to Protect User Information and Data Retention
When a user enters identifying information, those details are transmitted across the internet securely using high-grade encryption.
Furthermore, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which has been given us, to prevent unauthorized access. Our security procedures mean that we may request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information.
In the circumstances set out in this policy, where we pass information to a third party, we will ensure that the security measures that such party has in place in relation to the processing of data are at least as stringent as those employed by us. This does not apply where we are required by law to pass personal or corporate information to a third party.
We will retain information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.
