This process may include sending personal information outside of the European Economic Area and, if necessary, across international borders. The data protection laws in these countries may not be as extensive as in the European Economic Area. However, we have taken appropriate steps to ensure the same level of protection for the processing carried out in these countries as within the European Economic Area.

A cookie is a piece of text which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree (or your browser agrees automatically if you have set it up in that way), your browser adds that text in a small file.
A cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets web site operators know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. For example, when you visit an electronic store, a cookie makes it easier to shop, by allowing you to place things into a shopping basket; the basket itself is not a cookie; the cookie is placed on your hard drive and keeps track of your basket versus others in use at the same time.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our web site in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. Denial of a traffic log cookie may prevent you from using the web site.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better web site, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. This practice is strictly enforced. We know that people have concerns about cookies, but we believe that the benefit that you and Electric Center gain from their proper use is worthwhile.
You may set up your web browser to notify you of cookie placement requests or decline cookies completely (although declining them may prevent you from being able to use the web site properly or at all) or to only allow ‘trusted’ sites to set them etc. You can also choose to delete the files that contain cookies as those files are stored as part of your Internet browser.
If you are unsure as to how to do this then the following website may be helpful:
You need to remember that if you do delete all of your cookies, some features of websites such as remembering log in details will not work and your web use experience may be affected.
Cookies and the Law:
The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011 came into force fully on 26th May 2012 and are designed to protect an internet users privacy.
We believe that such cookies have a very low level of intrusiveness and are very important to our running of the website.
Updating personal information:
If a user's personally identifiable information changes we will correct, update or remove that user's personal data as speedily as possible once we are made aware of the change(s).
You may request details of the personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. A small fee may applied. This fee will not exceed £10.
