Privacy Policy

Distinction is committed to protecting the privacy of those using this website. By using this website, you indicate that you agree to the following privacy policy.

What personal information does Distinction collect?

The information we learn from visitors helps us personalise and continually improve your experience on this website. Here are the general types of information we gather:

Information You Give Us

We receive and store any information you provide to us when you communicate with us by e-mail, contact form, or otherwise. Such information may include your name, address, email address, and other personal data.

Information Gathered Automatically

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses this site. Examples of the information we may collect and analyse include the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our website and related services, including date and time; cookie number; and areas of the site you visited.

Other Information

In order to improve and personalise our service, we may in the future also receive information about you from other sources.

Remarketing

This website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the Distinction website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.

What about 'cookies'?

Cookies are small files that we transfer to your computer's hard drive or your web browser memory to enable our systems to recognise your browser and to provide convenience and other features to you.

The "help" portion of the toolbar on most web browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, if you turn off your ability to receive and use cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of our services. Therefore, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does Distinction share the information about you?

Information about Distinction clients and other users is an important part of our business, and we take steps to maintain the privacy and security of such information against unauthorised access. Distinction does not share any information collected about the user with any other third parties.

How secure is information about you?

We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We also use a secure server hosting location, Firewall protection, controlled access and encryption technology to protect your data. While no system is completely foolproof, we take the security of your personal information very seriously, and our security measures are designed to protect that information in a responsible manner.

Can I Opt-Out of things you send?

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, although that might prevent us from personalising our service for you or prevent us from responding fully to your enquiry.

By completing any enquiry form on our website, you are also subscribing to our occasional newsletter.

From time to time, Distinction will send newsletters and other emails to clients and other contacts who have agreed to be contacted by Distinction. You can always choose not to receive email from Distinction by following the instructions contained within the emails.
