WHO WE ARE
We collect, use and protect your data in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679.
TYPES OF DATA WE COLLECT
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
When someone visits our website, we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
As part of the registration process for our email newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for these reasons: to tell you about things that you have asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are correct and to check every now and then that you are happy and satisfied. We do not rent or trade email lists with other organisations or businesses.
We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our email newsletter. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will always ask your permission before sending you email marketing information. We do this by asking for your positive confirmation (e.g. by providing a tick or inserting your contact details in the relevant boxes) indicating that you wish to receive marketing and you can opt out at any time. This ensures you only receive information that you have given us permission to send and are willing to receive.
Data Required to Process Your Order
When you make a purchase from our website or via phone, your name, billing address data, delivery address data, email and contact number will be stored in our website system on our secure server. We use this data to process your order - to process your payment, to send you order confirmation and shipping confirmation emails, to ship the order to your delivery address, to contact you about your order if required, and to send you a review request. Please be assured that we do not share your personal details with any other company without your consent.
Data for Trade Account Registration
Registration may be required on our trade site, in order to view prices and purchase products. For registration, we collect data including: name, email address, business name, business type, business website, VAT number, products you are interested in, how you found us, which search phrase you used.
This information is used to: ensure that you are a business customer, help us better serve you according to your business type, contact you regarding your trade account (not marketing material), help us better understand how and where business customers find us, help us better understand the products that you are interested in so we can better serve you, and provide you with a VAT invoice.
After purchase, you may be given the opportunity to give feedback regarding your experience on the order confirmation page. This data is used solely to help us improve customer experience by identifying what we did well, and what we could improve. No personal data is collected in this survey.
To protect your information, we have policies and procedures in place to make sure that only authorised personnel can access the information, that information is handled and stored in a secure and sensible manner and all systems that can access the information have proportionate and reasonable security measures in place.
While we take commercially reasonable measures to ensure the safety and security of your data, due to the inherent risks with the Internet, we are unable to warranty the absolute security of your data when using our services.
