OGL Software Limited (“OGL”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) recognises that many visitors and users of our website are concerned about the information that they provide to us, and how we treat that information.  OGL is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.  As an essential part of our business, we collect and manage website user and visitor data.  In doing so, we observe the UK data protection legislation and are committed to protecting and respecting our website users’ and visitors’ privacy rights.  Specifically, we act as a Data Controller in respect of the information gathered and processed by us.  This Privacy Statement sets out how we collect, use and protect any information that you provide when using this website and the basis on which it will be processed.

For the purpose of UK data protection legislation, the Data Controller is OGL Software Limited, which is a company incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 02798678.  OGL Software Limited is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
