Compliance with General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) after 25 May 2018

We collect and hold individual and commercial contact details in order that we maintain a full and professional relationship with our business associates, whether private customers, project partners or companies in the supply chain. We do this purely to enable us to pursue legitimate business activities. We do not collect or hold sensitive information, biometrics, religious or ethnic details or political leanings – these are not necessary for us to do business together. Receipt of a business card from any new contact is understood as a request for further contact and that the individual concerned automatically agrees and consents to us holding their information on file.

We have not and would never sell-on contact details, database entries or mailing lists to another individual or organisation, unless by prior discussion and consent. This includes a scenario where a mutual business interest may be identified, consent is always sought first, before making an introduction. We do not perform any direct mass marketing by e-mail, so you will never receive a circular “mailshot” sales approach from us.

We keep your information stored in a password-protected computer system which itself is protected by field –leading antivirus and cyber-attack defence software, in an office which is locked outside of business hours, in a building which is locked all of the time and takes visitors by appointment only. Storage of information is necessary for us to fulfil our accounting and tax obligations as well as deal with sales and marketing, warranties and continued business. Details may be archived within the office as hard copies and held in locked filing cabinets. As required by HMRC, accounting details, invoices, accounts etc are held for a minimum of 6 years before we can delete them, according to UK Law.
