Information that you provide by filling in forms on this website. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use this website, subscribing to our service, posting material or requesting further services.

You can also disable or delete cookies you have previously accepted if you wish to. 

We recommend that you leave cookies "turned on" so that we can offer you a better experience on this website. If you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including strictly necessary cookies) you may not be able to access parts of our site.

We have set certain cookies on your device and recommend that you agree to their use. If you do not, you may still use our website, but certain parts of it may not work or may not work as well.

We use the following cookies: 

Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website and for you to be able to complete services you ask for, such as online purchases. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services. 

Functional cookies. These cookies record information about choices you make on the Website, such as your user name, language or the region you are in. In this way, we are able to personalize your visit to the Website.

Performance cookies. These “analytical” cookies allow us to collect information about how visitors use our website, for example to count visitors and to see how visitors move around our website. They record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you. All information is anonymous. This helps us to improve the way our website works. Some of these cookies are provided by third parties such as Google Analytics and AddThis.

We rely on Google Analytics, a service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to analyze your use of the Website. The information generated by Google Analytics is subject to Google’s privacy policy and will be transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. Prior to the transfer, it will be anonymized by removing the last octet of your IP address. Google will then process it on our behalf in order to evaluate your use of the Website, to compile reports on Website activity and to provide other services related to Internet usage. Google will not link your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies for the aforesaid purposes by setting your browser accordingly; however, in that case, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Website. You may further opt-out of the collection of your usage data (including your IP address) and its processing by downloading and installing the add-on for your current web browser at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. For more information about the use of your data by Google, please see http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.

Advertisement cookies. These cookies allow us to deliver tailor-made advertisements to you on third party websites based on your interests in our products and services manifested during your visit on our Website. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you. All information is anonymous.

During your visit on our Website, neither the Third Party Providers nor Hamilton collect any personalized data, only anonymized data. The engagement of such technology is in full compliance with the relevant data protection legislations. Thanks to such data we can, for example, approach you with advertisement on third party websites which is personalized according to your interests in our products, e.g. after you have visited our Website and showed interest in a particular series of products, this technology may later show you more information in form of advertisements while surfing on another website.
