Privacy & Security

Newicon Privacy & Security

Newicon takes the security of your data and our infrastructure very seriously. We are committed to providing an environment that is safe, secure, and available to all of our customers. Without these basics we would not have a company.

As a web based software company we know a lot about security. We have built banking portals and sensitive secure systems. Your data is safe with us! Our sales and marketing efforts are about building relationships with our customers. The only data we store about you is the data you explicitly give us if you fill out our contact form or sign up to our mailing list. We store numbers on how effective one contact button is from the next as a conversion percentage representing number of people visiting the site against the number of people who completed the form. We also pay google for adds - ran by our own internal digital team and we get numbers on how many clicks these adds have had. None of our web performance metrics can be used to identify you individually.

Your privacy is important to you and to us. So we’ll protect the information you share with us.
We can promise that we will never sell or give away your name, mail address, phone number, email address or any other information to anyone.

Newicon ltd. (“we”, “us”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act), the data controller is Newicon Ltd, The Waterfront, Welsh Back, Bristol, BS1 4SB. Our nominated representative for the purpose of the Act is Steven O’Brien.

    When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
