Privacy Policy

This policy covers all users who register to use the oftecdirect.com website. It is not necessary to register in order to gain access to the searching facilities of the site, but we may restrict access to certain areas as referred to in Principle 2 below. Access to oftecdirect.com is free of charge to all users.

The oftecdirect.com website is operated by Oil Firing Technical Association. We are committed to protecting your privacy when you are using our online services. To protect your privacy, we apply five principles which you can read about below.

Principle 1 - Notice

During our registration process, we ask for personal information which both identifies you and enables us to communicate with you.

We will use the information you provide only for the following purposes:

  • To send you newsletters and details of offers and promotions in which we believe you will be interested
  • To improve the content, design and layout of the oftecdirect.com website and to facilitate knowledge management
  • To understand the interests and buying behaviour of our registered users
  • To perform other such general marketing and promotional activities focused on our products and services
  • We may also register you for our other services which we feel may be useful or of interest to you

This privacy policy only covers the oftecdirect.com website at http://www.oftecdirect.com. Other links within this site to other websites or framed third party sites within oftecdirect.com are not covered by this policy. We may continue to use your personal information for a period after you cease being a registered user.

Principle 2 - Consent and Choice

If you choose not to register or not provide personal information, you may still visit the oftecdirect.com website but you will not be able to access the restricted areas available to registered users. By completing the registration process, you accept the Terms and Conditions described and consent to our using your information accordingly.

Principle 3 - Access

We have provided an administration service (My Account) where you can review your personal information at any time to ensure it is correct and current. You will be able to update, correct, change or delete inaccurate details. You have the right to ask for a copy of your personal information on payment of a small fee.

Principle 4 - Security

We have taken appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information is not unlawfully processed. oftecdirect.com uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information. oftecdirect.com treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorised access. However, no information transferred over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed to be completely secure. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the company.

We will not be transferring your personal information outside of the European Economic Area unless otherwise specifically advised.

Principle 4.1 - Cookies

Our website creates a cookie on your machine containing session and state information. The information within this cookie does not include any personal or financial information. Our website requires cookies to be enabled in the web browser to allow tasks such as registering, logging in, buying items or accessing accounts. Please be aware that should cookies be disabled, many of the features of the website will be impaired or unavailable. At no point does the oftecdirect.com website create any third party cookies on your machine.

Principle 5 - Minors

The oftecdirect.com website is not intended for children and we ask that no-one under the age of 12 submits personal information to us or uses the site without supervision of a parent or guardian.

Principle 6 - Deletion of your Personal Data

We are unable to delete your oftecdirect.com account information containing your personal information for a period of 6 years from the date of your last interaction with us (this could be a sales transaction, a return, or some other interaction with oftecdirect.com via our Customer Services team or our online tools). This is because we may need to access historical information for business reporting purposes.
