What’s this notice for?

When ENT UK collects your information, we are required by law to be fair in notifying individuals on how their information will be managed and informing them of their rights.

More than that, we want to be transparent, open and ethical in our practices. This notice provides privacy information for visitors to ENT UK's websites.

For more specific detail on how we use your information to provide services to you please see our customer Data protection notice.

What information do you collect on me?

We collect information about the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of all visitors to the site which helps us monitor the level of activity and the service we provide. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Internet, allowing Internet servers to locate and identify your computer.

Computing devices require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop, and to make sure messages get from one device to another and that the messages are understood.

What about if I fill in a web form?

To provide you with services, such as professional membership we need to obtain and use your data. We provide specific information and privacy notices for each of our services at the time you submit your information, so you always know what’s going to happen to your information, also ensuring you are in control of how it is used.

In addition to specific Privacy Notices about a particular service, we also maintain a more general Data protection notice that covers a wider view of our activities for people that want further details. We also have Our privacy promise, which spells out our overall commitment to privacy.

What about other websites you provide links to on your site?

While we take all reasonable precautions to make sure that other organisations who we deal with have good security practices, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other organisations whose websites may be linked to our service, or whose contact details we may provide on our website.

We are also not responsible for the privacy practices of social media providers with whom ENT UK has pages or accounts.
