Ecommerce Accountants, (“Ecommerce Accountants”, “we” or “us”) is an accountancy company based in the UK, which means we offer accountancy services (our “Service”) that people and businesses (our “Clients”) can use.
What Information Do You Collect and How Do You Collect It?
At various times, you could be asked to provide information such as your name, email address, contact phone number or other information. Information collected is often defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable:
Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, email address, or phone number. Downloading information or logging in may allow the Company to “recognise” you to allow us to personalise our service for you.
We keep this information for a reasonable period of time in connection with your on-going business with us. You have the right to withdraw your consent to the use of your Personally Identifiable Information at any time.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information (such as mobile provider, operating system, etc.) automatically and store it in log files. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyse trends, to administer the website, to track users movements around the website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may link some of this automatically-collected data to certain Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information
If you are a Client, when you register with us via our Website, we will ask you for some personally identifiable information, such as your first and last name, company name, email address and business/home address.
You can request that all of your personal information be deleted from our servers by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can request a copy of your personal information by emailing us at email@example.com
If you choose to allow a website to collect your location data, such location data may be available to the applicable Client. In addition, if you have an account with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Foursquare or other similar websites (each a “Social Network”), your Social Network identity, including your public picture, may be associated with your location data. If you send a “Do Not Track” request through your web browser, we may still collect and use your browsing data to improve security, to provide our Service and to generate reporting statistics, but in general we will not track other websites that you may have visited.
Ecommerce Accountants is the owner and data controller of the information collected through the Service.
How Do You Use Individual Information?
For our Clients, we use personal information mainly to provide the Services and contact our Clients regarding account activities or other communications relevant to the Services.

In addition, we may use the personal information described above to send you information regarding the Service. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such information or communications from us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be removed from our list.
