Our Privacy Policy

  1. How we collect information from you

    Teng Tools operates an ecommerce website which allows customers to browse and order products to be collected from their preferred Teng Tools stockist. When placing an order on our website we will ask you to setup an account and provide personal information for example your name and contact details. This process is necessary for Teng Tools to fulfil any orders placed and to help prevent individuals from placing fraudulent orders. We may also collect information about your usage of the website and information about you from the messages you post to the website and the emails or other correspondence you send to us.

    By accessing our website using mobile digital routes (but not limited to) mobile, tablet or other devices/technology, then you should expect that our data collection and usage as set out in this privacy policy will apply in that context too.

    We may also collect information about where you are on the internet (eg the URL you came from, IP address, domain type), your browser type, the country where your computer is located, the pages of our website that were viewed during your visit, and any search terms that you entered on our website. Unless you have elected to remain anonymous through your device and/or platform settings, this information may be collected and used by us automatically. We may collect this information even if you do not register with us.

    Customers should be aware that information disclosed while connected to the internet is transferred to us over a publicly available telecommunications network. Teng Tools cannot be held responsible, and accept no liability, for unauthorised access to the public network and all information provided by customers is done entirely at the customers’ own risk.

  4. How Cookie Technology Works

    A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. On the Teng Tools website we use cookies to understand site usage, to identify if you have visited the site before and to allow us to present you with product and service information based on your previous behaviour on the site.

    How to disable cookies

  5. Security and Data Retention

    We take steps to protect your information from unauthorised access, unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We use third parties for processing and storing your Personal and Order data. We do not locally store your data.

    All of these systems are regularly patched according to vendor recommendations and are monitored 24/7 for intrusion attempts and other attacks. All data is transmitted over the secure HTTPS protocol, which is configured according to NIST guidelines and is regularly reviewed to ensure continued strong security. Passwords are salted and encrypted with the SHA-256 algorithm to ensure your password would not be lost in case of a database breach. Database queries are sanitised to prevent SQL injection attacks. Only the hosting company's employees have access to the systems, and they are subject to a non-disclosure agreement to ensure all customer data and source code remains confidential.

    Passwords:

    Where you have chosen a password which allows you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We advise you not to share your password with anyone.

    We take our security responsibilities seriously, employing the most appropriate physical and technical measures, including staff training and awareness. We review these measures regularly.
