Privacy Statement

This privacy statement is provided by SD Europe (referred to as ‘us’, ‘our’, or ‘we’ in the statement) for the information of visitors (referred to as ‘you’ or ‘your’ in the statement) to our website.

Updated: 24/06/2022

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected, so this statement discloses the following information:

  • Use of Your Personal Information

  • Other websites

  • Log files

  • Google Analytics

  • How We Use Cookies

  • Transfers abroad

  • Security

  • Notification of Changes

  • Getting In Touch


We receive and store any information that you enter on our website or give to us in any other way. Where you voluntarily provide personal information, the information may be used for analysis, research or customer service purposes only. We will use your data for the purpose for which it was originally provided and it will not be disclosed in any manner that is incompatible with the purpose for which it was obtained.

SD Europe collects information through our website in two ways:

Monthly news briefing

To share news and updates, SD Europe creates and shares a regular email newsletter. You can sign up to the newsletter using a two-step opt in process via the Sign Up To Our Newsletter banner on our website homepage and via a module on our Facebook page (@SDEurope07). Data collected during this process will not be used for any other purpose than sending informational emails. Recipients can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the Unsubscribe link provided in each email.

Contact Us

If you contact SD Europe through our Contact Us form or any of the email addresses or phone numbers provided on the website, we will collect information such as your name and email address. This information is used to respond to your question or request.

We will only disclose your data to third parties who are our employees and for purposes in relation to the support we provide to you. In these cases, we will ensure such third parties only use your data in accordance with our instructions and that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your data.


Our website contains links to other websites. These links are provided for your convenience and any such link does not imply endorsement by us of the website, nor does it imply that there is any association between us and the operators of the website. We are not responsible for the data policies or procedures or the content of these linked websites.


Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyse trends, administer the sites, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. We use information to maintain the proper technical functioning of the site.


We use Google Analytics to monitor how customers use – this information cannot in anyway personally identify a customer other than his/her general geographical location.


A cookie is a small file that asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. In addition, the website and those of its affiliates and clients may contain advertisements that may contain Cookies.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. In addition, the website and those of its affiliates and clients may contain advertisements that may contain Cookies.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.


Owing to the global nature of the Internet, there is a possibility that your information may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area, including to a jurisdiction which is not recognised by the European Commission as providing for an equivalent level of protection for personal data as is provided for in the European Union (a “Third Country”). If and to the extent that we do so, we will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure that appropriate measures are in place to comply with our obligations under applicable law governing such transfers.


This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and offline.


If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

If, however, we are going to use users’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the site, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner.


If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy statement, please email:
