4. How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?

We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Your personal data will therefore be kept for the following periods at most (or, where there is no fixed period, the following factors will be used to determine how long it is kept):
Where you purchase a product from us:
• Personal data in our customer file – 10 years from the end of the month in which we delivered the product;
• In the event that further goods or services have been supplied to you in connection with the product in the 6 months prior to the above retention end date, your personal data will be retained for a further 12 months from the end of the month in which the further goods or services were supplied;
• Any credit card details given to us by you to make payment are shredded immediately after use;
• After a purchase, personal data in our accounting records, indefinably.
Where you chose not to purchase a product from us:
• 2 years from the date of last contact with yourself, will be deleted within 1 month of the end of this period.
Your personal data will only be used to supply you with marketing information that you have opted-in to for a period of 2 years from the date you opted in (subject to your opting out within that time).
Thereafter, consent by required by renewing your opt-in.

5. How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

We may store or transfer some or all of your personal data in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK and/or the EEA. This means that we will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR including:
• Personal data to be used for marketing may be held outside the EEA by a marketing supplier with whom we have a Data Processing Agreement and who has undertaken to comply with EEA data protection laws.

6. Do You Share My Personal Data?

In the course of our business we contract with third parties to supply services to you on our behalf. These may include:
• design services for our products,
• surveying services
• fitting services.
We also recommend third parties who will supply services to you. These services may include:
• fitting of our products;
• surveying services
• associated trades and services
We also may contract with third parties to supply marketing services.
These third parties require access to some or all of your personal data that we hold.
If any of your personal data is required by a third party, as described above, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law.
We contract with third parties (as described above), and certain of those third parties supplying marketing services are located outside of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). If any personal data is transferred to a third party outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR, as explained above in Part 8.
In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

7. How Can I Access My Personal Data?

If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “Subject Access Request (‘SAR’)”.
All Subject Access Requests (‘SAR’) should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown below.
We will respond to your subject access request within not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
