Your privacy is important to us.
For the purposes of the applicable Data Protection legislation, we are the controller of the personal data we collect when you use the Website.
What personal data do we collect from you?
If you wish to contact us with an enquiry through the Website, we ask you to supply essential contact details including your name, e-mail address, phone number and (where applicable) the company you represent and your job title, which we need in order to identify you through the Website and answer your enquiry.
We may collect further personal information where this is necessary in order to provide you with a quotation for our products and services.
If you make a job application or enquire about a potential position with us, or another person does so on your behalf, we will ask you (or them) to provide relevant personal information about you. Further details of the personal data that we collect, and of the basis on which we will process your personal data, will be provided by our HR Department at the time.
Why and on what basis do we process your personal data?
We will process the personal data that you give us, or we collect from you, so that we can supply you with the information about the services that we supply. The legal basis on which we do so is that it is necessary for our legitimate interests in promoting and marketing our services.
If you order any of the services that we make supply, we will process the personal data that you give us in order to supply you with those services, for internal record keeping, billing and accounting, and to respond to any queries, complaints or requests for further information. The legal basis on which we will do so is that it is necessary for our performance of the contract we have with you, or is necessary for our legitimate interests in managing our business and improving our products and services.
We also use the personal data that you provide or that we collect for market research purposes and to improve the content or lay-out of our Website, on the basis that it is necessary for our legitimate interest in managing our Website and providing a better service for our customers.
We would like to use the details on our database in order to inform you of the services that we provide, on the basis that it is necessary for our legitimate interests in promoting and marketing our business and the services we provide. If you wish us to use your personal data in this way, please tick the relevant box or click the relevant link on the form or in the email that we send you. All future marketing communications will also contain a simple way to opt out of receiving any further marketing communications from us.
Who do we share your information with?
We may disclose your personal data if we need to do so in order to comply with any legal or regulatory obligation or request, or where we have a legitimate interest in doing so, such as in order to enforce or apply our contract with you, to investigate potential breaches, or to protect our property and rights or those of others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
If another company acquires us or all or some of our assets, that company will possess the same information and will assume the rights and obligations with respect to that information.
Except as set out above, we will never sell, distribute or disclose any of your personal data (except anonymous aggregate information) to any third party without your express consent.
Some of our data processing services are supplied by third party providers, who will need to have access to your data for that purpose. Such third party suppliers will be appointed on the basis that they provide sufficient guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures so that the processing will meet the requirements of the applicable Data Protection legislation and ensure the protection of the rights of the data subjects, and will carry out processing only on our written instructions.
How long do we keep personal data for?
If you contact us with an enquiry but do not enter into a contract with us, our policy is to delete your personal data after 12 months. If you order any of our services, we normally retain contract information (including personal data) for 6 years after the end of the relevant contract, or for longer where we it is necessary for us to do so for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for compliance with legal obligations. Personal data relating to our professional and business contacts will be retained for so long as is necessary, or until you indicate otherwise to us, but we will aim to update our contacts’ preferences on a periodic basis
In certain case, it may not be physically possible to delete certain data (for instance, where it is stored on a secure external server), in which case we will take appropriate steps to ensure that it is not available for re-use or disclosure to third parties.
