Website Privacy Policy

We regard the privacy of our users as very important and any personal information which you provide to us will be dealt with in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which Otter Products EMEA (“we,” “our,” or “us”) processes your personal information on this and other sites owned and operated by Otter Products EMEA (“the Sites”). By using the Sites, you consent to the processing of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy, now and as amended by us.

What information do we collect?

User-Provided Information – We collect any information that you provide when you use the Sites, including when you create an account, purchase a product, write a product review, apply for a job, participate in our message boards or forums, sign up to receive our electronic newsletters, participate in polls and surveys, or otherwise contact us with a question, comment, or request. This can include, but is not limited to: (a) your name, contact information, username, password, and other registration information; (b) transaction-related information, such as when you make purchases or respond to any offers; (c) information you provide when submitting an employment application form; and (d) information you provide us when you contact us.

Automatically Collected Information – In addition, we may use “cookies” or similar technologies to automatically collect information about your usage of the Sites. Cookies are small, text-only files sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. We use cookies to maintain session state and the use of cookies is fundamental to the operating of the Sites. Our use of cookies enables us to relate your use of the Sites to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. We do not store personal information within the cookie

If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you should receive a warning message for each cookie. You may refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. Each browser is different, so you will need to check your browser's "Help" menu to learn how to change your browser's cookie preferences. However, you should be aware that our Sites, like most other popular sites, may not work well with "cookies disabled", and you may not be able to experience the full functionality of the Sites, such as not being able to participate actively in our blog, polling, and surveys.

How do we use this information?

We may use the information for a number of purposes, including:

We also may anonymise, combine, or aggregate any of the information we collect through the Sites or elsewhere for any of these purposes. If you decide that you no longer want to receive marketing communications from us or from our carefully selected third party partners, you can simply click one of the “unsubmit” links that is included in every communication.

Do third parties see and/or have access to your information?

We may disclose User-Provided and Automatically Collected Information:

In addition, we may share aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns, as well as anonymised information, with third parties. The Sites may contain links to websites published by other content providers. These other websites are not under our control, and you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the collection and use of your information by such websites. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each website you visit and use.

How is my information secured?

We endeavor to take reasonable measures to safeguard the information collected by the Sites. Please be aware, however, that no information system is 100% secure, and therefore we cannot guarantee against all potential security breaches. Moreover, the transmission of information over wireless and wired networks is not inherently secure, and we are not responsible for the transmission of information over networks that we do not control, including the Internet. Please do not use email to send us information that you consider sensitive, such as financial information; email is not a secure channel. The information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, destinations outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA, for example to provide support services, fulfill orders, or process payment details. By submitting any personal information or by using the Sites, you agree to the transfer, storage, and processing of your personal data outside the EEA. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Children’s information

We do not use the Sites to knowingly solicit information from, or market to, children under the age of 16. If you become aware that your child or any child under your responsibility has provided us with information without your consent, please contact us at legalEMEA@otterproducts.com.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting a new Privacy Policy on this page. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes, and your continued use of the Sites after such changes have been made constitutes acceptance of those changes. If we make any revisions that materially change the ways in which we use or share the information previously collected from you through the Sites, we will give you the opportunity to consent to such changes before applying them to that information.

Your rights

You have a right to access, update, rectify, and modify the data the Sites collect about you. You also have a right to oppose, for legitimate grounds, the processing of your data by the Sites. Should you oppose the processing of your data on legitimate grounds, you understand that you may not be able to use the Sites and this may result in reduced functionality of the Sites. You may exercise your rights to access, update, rectify, modify, and oppose the processing of your information by contacting us at legalEMEA@otterproducts.com.
