Is the Internet Safe

Defining safe sometimes is about defining expectation. Surfing the Internet has lots of traps and pitfalls the unwary can get loured in.

For the most part in a B2B environment, we know who we are visiting and we know who we are dealing with. When our contemporises or trading partners suggest sign up and get involved, it is reasonable to expect that is what is happening is you are communicating directly with them no one else.

Outside of the B2B world you instantly become wary and note when a page link has sent you to a different site, even though it may seem legitimate. The reason to be wary is more often or not is logically something else is going on. There was a time when a simple check on the about, terms or privacy links you got to the right answers.

GDPR makes it safe? well no it makes it murky and legitimises what most of us would conclude to be nefarious actions with the phrases such as we are not ‘responsible for our partners’ stuck down somewhere deep in the many layers of gobbledegook. What they should have said is we facilitate partner links that do the data mining and tracking for us.

As if to contradict our selves with links, go to https://disconnect.me, download the app and install it as part of your browser. If nothing else it will help improve your perception of the type of the people you are dealing with and start you on the trail of wanting to know more.

Deceuninck UK: "The VinylPlus® Product Label fits perfectly with our mission of ‘building a sustainable home’. It’s a serious ‘plus’ for customers because it guarantees Deceuninck products are truly sustainable. Importantly, the scheme also shows that PVC is a sustainable and future-proof building material for the building and construction industry." Commenting on the certification Managing Director Rob McGlennon

Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions: "This lantern is the dawn of a new era for our industry and we’re really proud to launch what is a truly exciting advance in lantern design. We’ve put our passion, expertise and agility into developing our new lantern." said Gareth Thomas, sales and marketing director

Vista Panels: "We are really excited about our new Collections, as these stunning, modern, contemporary doors will provide our existing customers with a great product to add to their regular range. I’ve seen nothing like this before and the composite door market has been crying out for some innovation." said Haydon Statham, national sales manager

Edgetech: "It’s immensely gratifying to see Edgetech technology used in one of history’s most famous buildings. Most people on the planet can recognise the Eiffel Tower, and it’s the most visited pay-to-enter monument in the world, attracting over seven million tourists every year." comments Managing Director Chris Alderson

DOORCO: "Working as closely with our customers as we do, we identified a need to make the process of generating leads, creating orders and ultimately selling more doors, even easier." explains Ben Aspinall

Brisant Secure: "2018 was the year that super secure has become the norm and we’ve even made a video out of these statistics. We’ve added a number of clever marketing tools for our customers, so they can sell the benefits of super security direct to the homeowner, helping to make the sales process easy." commented CEO Nick Dutton


Kingfisher Windows: "The fixing system used meant that the pre-glazed windows could be fitted directly into the steel framing system, so the internal fit out could begin at the same time as the brick façade was being erected. This reduced the overall build time." Jonny Reynolds, technical director

Dekko: "Our aim has always been to help customers reach a position where they can thrive in the premium market. As an installer, introducing these products really will mean that you are holding all the cards." commented Sales Director Kurt Greatrex
