What personal data we collect
Personal data means any information relating to you which allows us to identify you, such as your name and contact details and information about your access to our website.
We may collect personal data from you when you contact us by phone, email, post or via our website
Specifically, we may collect the following categories of information:
Name, home address, site address, e-mail address, telephone numbers and details regarding any work required.
Security of your personal data
We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data, and to protect it against accidental loss, destruction or damage.
What we use your personal data for, why and for how long
Your data may be used for the following purposes:
Providing products and services that you request: we use the information you give us to provide relevant quotations for the windows and doors required from our approved suppliers.
We send you communications about the services and products you have asked for and any changes to such services and products. These communications are not made for marketing purposes.
Customer Services communications: we use your data to manage our relationship with you as our customer and to improve our services and enhance your experience with us;
Provide tailored services: we use your data to provide information we believe is of value to your project.
We will only process your personal data where we have a legal basis to do so.
In most cases we will need to process your personal data so we can enter into our contract of supply with you.
We will not retain your data for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose it is being processed for. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the purposes for which we process it, any guarantee period and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it. We will also consider if, and how, we can minimise over time the personal data that we use, and if we can anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you or identify you, in which case we may use that information without further notice to you.
Sharing your personal data
Your personal data may be shared with other companies for the purpose of fulfilling our contract with you.
Your data protection rights
Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:
- Request information about whether we hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why we are holding/using it.
- Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
- Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
- Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
- Request transfer of your personal information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party (commonly known as a right to “data portability”). This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your data to another party.
- Withdraw consent. In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
