In addition, we collect information about your IT infrastructure including but not limited to technical details on your servers, PCs, peripherals, data/voice infrastructure, data connections, software licenses, applications and access credentials. For the purpose of dealing with third parties in solving Help Desk incidents we may also collect information on your suppliers involved in supplying IT services to you.

Gratex’s web servers may automatically collect website usage information about you while you are visiting our websites. This information helps Gratex to identify how visitors and subscribers use and navigate the websites, including the number and frequency of users to each web page, their IP address, and the length of their stays.

As well as most websites, Gratex automatically collects information and data through the use of "cookies". A "Cookie" is a small file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. It enables a website to recognize repeated users, facilitate the user's ongoing access to the website and use of it. Furthermore, it allows a website to track usage behavior and to compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. A cookie does not provide Gratex with personal information. You can accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies; however you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the websites you visit.
