Strawman Limited’s Privacy Notice explains how we use the personal information we collect when you use this website. This Privacy Notice describes what personal information we collect from you, why we collect it and how we use it. We require you to read the Notice and agree to its content prior to using our service.
Strawman Limited does not specifically request any personal information. When a request is placed to use our service, we require an email address for the European Patent Company and a reference; both of which may identify an individual. This is the only basic personal information that we collect and does not include any special types of information.
We need an email address in order to provide your Company with written confirmation that you may, or may not, use our service. This is a requirement of our contract: full details are in ‘The Agreement’. We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide and oversee this service.
All personal data is processed by Strawman Limited in the UK. Your privacy is extremely important to Strawman Limited. We are committed to protecting any information that you give to us and we will not disclose any information to any company, except if required to do so by law. This includes not sharing your information for any marketing purposes outside Strawman Limited.
However, we do use an independent IT company for the purposes of hosting and maintenance of our website. This service provider is not permitted to use or disclose personal data, except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.
Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information. This information is used to track visitor use to the website and to produce statistical reports on website activity.

We will keep your personal information only for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we are processing your information - unless the law permits or requires longer. For example, we may need to keep it longer to defend any potential future legal claims.
If, at any point, you believe the information we process about you is incorrect, you can request to have it corrected by using our contact form. Alternatively, if you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can also contact us by using our Contact Us form.
We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time. We will always include a date to identify the latest version. If changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice.
