Alongside our business and internal computer systems, the NTS website is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation with regards to data protection and user privacy:
This site’s compliance with the above legislation, all elements of which are stringent in nature, means that this site is likely compliant with the data protection and user privacy legislation set out by many other countries and territories as well. If you are unsure about whether this site is compliant with your own country of residences’ specific data protection and user privacy legislation you should contact our compliance team (details of whom can be found in section 9.0 below) for clarification.
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction.
We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to track their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your approximate geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us.
GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you, but Google do not grant us access to this. We consider Google to be a third-party data processor (see section 6.0 below).
For your information our website uses GA.
Should you choose to contact us using the contact form on our website, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or passed to/be processed only by any other third-party data processors defined in section 6.0 below.
Instead the data will be collated into an email and sent to us over the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by TLS (sometimes known as SSL) meaning that the email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. The email content is then decrypted by our local computers and devices.
As detailed in section 3.2 above, the information supplied during registration will be stored in our customer database.
This website is hosted in data centers in the UK. All traffic (transferral of files) between this website and your browser is encrypted and delivered over HTTPS.
We use a third party to process personal data on our behalf. The third party we use is Google Analytics:
We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our third-party data processors to all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
