We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

How do we use your Personal Information?
We use the Contact Information that we collect generally to fulfill any requests that you communicate with us through the websites (including processing your request, and providing you with quotes, invoices and/or other expected information for usual business services). Additionally, we use this Contact Information to communicate with you, and when in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimise our websites (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the websites, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
If you have purchased products or services from us, you also have access to see where we hold your personal data to fulfil these obligations to you. This information is provided under our Customer Personal Data Policy and Customer Information Security Policy, and is not detailed here as this is not public information. Please ask us for this information if you are a customer.
