Privacy Policy

Thorn Lighting is committed to protecting your privacy and this Privacy Policy sets out the type of information we collect and what we do with it.

Thorn Lighting does not sell, rent or loan the mailing list of newsletters, or registration details and usage trends, to any outside companies or organisations. Thorn Lighting does share your information with a marketing agency working on its behalf in order for it to provide you with the website service. Disclosure of your data to other suppliers, such as mailing houses, may be necessary if you request the provision of products, services and information via this website.

Whenever you are contacted by e-mail you will be informed how to opt out of being updated by e-mail in the future.

Data can never be guaranteed 100 per cent secure on the internet and, therefore, Thorn Lighting Limited does not accept liability for any breach of security while accessing the internet.

Thorn Lighting is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 and complies with it, to the best of its knowledge and belief.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies which are small text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible, among other things, to analyse the way in which you use our website. As a rule, the information generated by cookies is transferred to and stored on a server in the USA that is operated by Google. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports regarding website activities and provide services for the website operator relating to website and Internet usage. These reports and services are used to make continuous improvements to the facilities offered by this website.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by making an appropriate setting in your browser. Nevertheless, we must point out that, if you do this, you will be unable to use all the functionalities of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the acquisition and processing of data relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and generated by cookies by Google by simply downloading and installing the following Google browser plug-in by clicking the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Other similar plug-ins are also available from other providers depending on the particular browser you use.

In view of the debate regarding the use of analytics tools with full IP addresses, please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the "anonymizeIp()" function, which ensures that IP addresses are processed in truncated form only and prevents them from being traced to a specific user. In Member States of the European Union or in other States that are parties to the European Economic Area Agreement, Google will therefore truncate your IP address before transferring it. Full IP addresses will be sent to a Google server in the USA to be truncated there only in exceptional cases. The IP address sent from your browser when using Google Analytics is not combined with any other Google data.

If you have submitted personal information to Thorn Lighting electronically and would like it deleted, please write to Paminder Chahal-Harris, Head of E-Marketing, Zumtobel Group, Chiltern Park, Chiltern Hill, Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire SL9 9FG, United Kingdom or email . This request would not remove information held about you on other Thorn Lighting databases that was not provided via this website.

Please note that this Privacy Policy only applies to Thorn Lighting's website. Our website includes links to other sites not controlled by us. These are provided to improve your experience of our site and are always made clear so that you are aware when you are leaving our site. Thorn Lighting accepts no liability for the Privacy practices applied by these other sites.

Any change to this Privacy Policy will be posted on our website.
