Pretorian Technologies Ltd is committed to privacy for everyone who accesses this website. Under the Data Protection Act (DPA) of 1998, the EU Data Protection Directive (DPD) of 1995, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of 2018, we must comply with certain regulations which are designed to ensure that any data you provide to us is processed with due care and attention.
What sort of data do we collect?
What do we do with this personal data?
We process your personal data as necessary to allow us to ship products to you and to aid our sales and marketing processes. We may occasionally send you information about new products or updates to existing products which we think you may be interested to know about. We do not bombard you constantly with emails because we know how annoying it can be. Any emails you do receive from us contain an easy opt-out facility which you are free to use at any time and the facility to update your contact preferences. We may also use data collected in the aggregate to help us to understand our users as a group so that we can provide you with a better service. This does not contain personally identifiable information.
Why do we process this personal data?
We process this personal data as necessary to aid our sales and marketing processes. We may also use data collected in the aggregate to help us to understand our users as a group so that we can provide you with a better service.
Why do we collect and process sensitive personal data?
We collect and process sensitive personal data only so far as is necessary to ensure we conform with legal requirements, or to assist you in the choice of our products. For example, it is sometimes necessary for us to ask about a particular customer’s disabilities so that we can advise which of our products would be most suitable in the circumstances. By using this website and by registering your details with us, you consent to us collecting and processing sensitive personal data supplied by you. For UK customers, it may on occasion be necessary to disclose this sensitive personal information to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to facilitate the VAT Relief Scheme or to assist with processing Personal Independence Payments (PIP) or the Disabled Living Allowance (DLA). Pretorian Technologies Ltd is acutely aware of the sensitivity of this type of information and will always treat it with due regard, disclosing it to outside agents only where strictly required. If you do not wish us to do so, please do not supply the information.
Do we pass data to third parties?
Where necessary we may pass data to carefully selected third parties to help us to process data, and to distributors of our products where it is not practical to ship them to you directly from our own facility. We do not, under any circumstances, sell or otherwise distribute your personal details.
How is this data safeguarded?
The security of your data is extremely important to us. Access to your personal data is only provided to those members of our staff who strictly require it in the furtherance of orders placed or to contact you using the methods which you have permitted.
Right to delete
You have the legal right to request that we delete some or all of the information you have provided to us. To achieve this, contact firstname.lastname@example.org listing sufficient detail to allow us to identify you. We will delete the necessary information from our systems within 14 days of us receiving such instructions and reply to confirm once complete.
How do we let you know if our policy changes?
Any policy changes, either due to business reasons or future changes in legislation, will be posted on this page and, if substantial, may be promoted on the website or through e-mail notification.
We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our third party data processors to any and all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.

Corringham Road Industrial Estate
Facebook, Twitter, and Other Social Networks
These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.
To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function properly, their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.
Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
Aggregate - this is when all data is collected and processed as a total to enable us to look at such information as demographic and geographic trends, so that we can try to produce a better service in the future.
