TRUK websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on TRUK or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of TRUK; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the TRUK website, or the public.
TRUK uses "cookies" to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise any of the pages on the TRUK website, or register with the TRUK site or services, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customised on the TRUK website.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the TRUK website services or other websites you visit.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
TRUK secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. TRUK secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES
TRUK use both our own (first party) and partner companies' (third party) cookies to support these activities. First party cookies are owned & created by the website you're viewing. Third party cookies are owned & created by an independent company, usually a company providing a service to the website owners. Examples of usages for third party cookies are web analysis (e.g. Google Analytic) and search queries.
TRUK takes due care when selecting 3rd Party service providers, however TRUK cannot take responsibility for the content and use of the cookies deployed by such 3rd parties. You again have the ability within your browser to specifically deny 3rd party cookies.
