Website analytics and cookies
When you visit the website, we will set certain "cookies" on your device. Some of them are necessary to allow the site to work (for example, the site needs to place a "session" cookie in order to enable you to navigate the site and to place orders). However, the site also uses a third party service called Google Analytics to gather information about how people use the site, in order to help us and BVG Airflo Group to improve it and fix problems with it. The final result as presented to us by Google is statistical in nature and does not identify you personally. You can learn more about it here: [https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en].
We do this on the basis of our legitimate interest in understanding how the site is used.

Your rights and how to exercise them
European and UK privacy laws give you certain rights in respect of the data that we hold about you. Below is a short overview of those rights.
• With some exceptions, you have the right to have a copy of the personal data that we hold about you. We may make a reasonable charge for additional copies of that data beyond the first copy, based on our administrative costs. Where the data is data that you have given to us, you have the right to receive your copy of it in a common electronic format, and to provide copies of it to other people if you wish.
• You have the right to have the personal data we hold about you corrected if it is factually inaccurate.
• In some circumstances, you have the right to have personal data that we hold about you erased (the "right to be forgotten"). This right is not generally available where we still have a valid legal reason to keep the data (for example, if we are obliged to do so by law).
• You have the right to require us to stop using your personal data for marketing purposes.
• You also have the right in some circumstances to request that temporary restrictions are placed on how we process your personal data, For example if we are processing it on the basis of our legitimate interest, and you contest our assessment that our interest is not overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms.
• If we are processing your personal data on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time, in which case we will stop that processing unless we have another legal basis on which to continue.
In order to protect you and others, we may require you to prove your identity before you exercise these rights.
If you are unhappy with how we have handled your personal data, you have the right to complain to your local data protection authority, which in the UK is the Information Commissioner's Office. You can reach them through their website at http://ico.org.uk.
