Privacy Policy



Vapourtec take users' privacy very seriously.

The information below should answer most questions but if you have any further questions, please contact



Why did I see the pop up banner at the base of the page when I first arrived ?

The EU law which applies to how a website uses cookies and similar technologies for storing information on a user’s equipment such as their computer or mobile device changed on 26 May 2011.  This is reflected in new UK law.  There was a 1 year "grace period" in which to comply.  This expires 26th May 2012.

Put another way, it is now a legal requirement that we inform visitors that the site will set cookies in their browser.


What Personal Information does the Vapourtec website collect ?

Any information you enter

If you sign up for our newsletter or request an application note or any other item on our website, you volunteer information such as your email address, which we then use to deliver your request.  This information is captured and stored within a professional database with a third party called Vertical Response, (based in the USA) which is secure.  We don't store any such information on our webserver.

Automatic Information

When you visit a website your browser supplies various information automatically, such as what browser you are using, your IP address, the referring website.

Our webserver logs a certain amount of this information, allowing Vapourtec to (for example) see a breakdown of how many website visitors there have been or which countries visitors in the past month have come from.


Is any of this information shared with third parties ?

As mentioned above, we use a third party mailing service (VerticalResponse) to distribute our newsletter and we store contacts' email addresses on their server.  They do not use this information for anything other than providing this service to Vapourtec.  It is not used by them or by their other customers.
