Third Party Cookies

Altron Communications can largely operate without the use of third party cookies. However, in many cases third party cookies improve the website experience.

Altron Communications will allow Google Analytics to operate on this website in order to provide necessary anonymous analytical data. This may result in a small amount of Personally Identifiable Information being collected, but this is only used as statistics and not for identification purposes.

Altron Communications will only store data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was obtained. Some data may be held for longer if it is either held on other systems that have not updated, in backup data that has not expired, or because of another lawful basis.

Altron Communications take security seriously, and make use of technology where feasible to secure data and protect against breaches.
