Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our website.

This privacy policy will advise you about how we protect your personal information, and about what choices you have concerning our use of such information. Please read this policy carefully. We may need to change this policy from time to time in order to address new issues and reflect changes on our sites. We will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose that information to anyone. Please refer back to this policy regularly.

If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please send an e-mail to: privacy@apc-fife.co.uk or contact us at APC Fife, 60 Nasmyth Rd, Southfield Ind est, Glenrothes KY6 2SD.

Scope Of Privacy Policy

This policy applies to your use of all websites owned by APC Fife.

Personal Identification Information

We will request personal identification information from you if you want to access proof of delivery information. In this case, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. We will never intentionally disclose any personal identification information about you as an individual user to any third party.

If you do provide us with personal information, we may use it to provide you with information about parcel deliveries carried out at your request. If you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments. We may file your comments for future reference, or we may discard the information after we have reviewed it.

If you give us your permission, we may also use personal identification information for internal marketing and promotional purposes. On occasion, for example, we may send you e-mails to introduce a product or service that we think might be of interest to the users of our website. For us to obtain your permission to send you this information, we will give you an opportunity to "opt-in" at the time our request for your personal information is made. If you do "opt-in," you may choose to "opt-out" at any time, even after you have provided personal information, by following the procedures set forth below at the end of this Privacy Policy.
We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the APC Fife website.

Non-Personal Identification Information

We collect non-personal identification information through the use of "cookie" technology and/or IP address tracking. Non-personal identification information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our site-such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information. Our system may gather information about the areas you visit and search terms you utilize on our sites and about the links you may select from within our site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.

We use such information to administer the site and, in the aggregate, to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our sites. This way we know which areas of our sites are popular with our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our site.

Most browsers are set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, please note that parts of the site requiring you to log in may not function.

The Use of Cookie Technology

A cookie is an element of data that a web site can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. Our site makes use of cookies to permit the completion of the user's current activity on the site and for aggregate, non-personally identifiable analysis (for example we may track the number of times users visit a portion of our site, but we do not track or know who those users are). We only use cookies to collect personally identifiable information with your consent, as described above under Personal Identification Information.

The APC Fife website is P3P enabled. P3P is a standardised set of multiple-choice questions which cover the major aspects of a Web sites privacy policies and which, taken together, present a clear snapshot of how a site handles users personal information. P3P-enabled Web sites make this information available in a standard, machine-readable format that P3P enabled browsers can "read" automatically and compare to the users own set of privacy preferences. For example, Internet Explorer 6 requires third parties that set cookies to deliver P3P compact cookie policies with their cookies. IE6s default setting will test whether a cookie collects personal information and allows an opt-out. IE6 users may change their privacy level to a higher or lower level than the default setting. P3P was developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), a worldwide web standards setting organization.

Links To Other Sites

Users may find contents on our site that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers and other third parties. In many cases, the links represent cooperative projects or are mutual links established with persons or entities connected with our sites. Although we initially visit the sites or services that are so linked, we do not control the contents or links that appear on these sites. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.

Security Policy

Protecting your privacy and your information is a top priority. We have taken careful measures to secure both your information and our physical premises. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Our secure server software encrypts information, ensuring that all Internet transactions remain private (unless sent by an unsecured means, such as e-mail).

Access To/Correction of Information

If you would like to review any personal information we have retained about you in our database, please send us an e-mail request for this information at privacy@apc-fife.co.uk. To help us address your request, please specify which information you wish to review. Once you have reviewed this information, at your request we will correct personal information about you that you state is erroneous. To request such a correction, please send an e-mail to privacy@apc-fife.co.uk.


If you "opt-in" to receive information from APC Fife, you can change your mind later. If at any time you would like to stop receiving such information or opt-out you can do so here.

Your Acceptance of These Terms

By using the APC Fife website, you signify your acceptance of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our sites. Your continued use of the APC Fife website following the posting of changes to these terms will mean that you accept those changes.
