USE OF YOUR DATA

How we use your data: Wherever possible, collection of data is restricted to specific information we need to legitimately perform our contractual obligations to you as a customer. For example, when you place an order with us for delivery, this may include your name, address, telephone number, email address and the delivery address if different. If we order goods on your behalf with a supplier who delivers direct, your contact details are shared with that supplier so they can legitimately fulfil their contractual obligation with us and you. If you pay by credit, debit or charge card in store or over the telephone, your card details are transmitted directly to our card payment processor and not stored on any devices within our network. Card payments on ecommerce websites are sent securely to a card payment processor for authorisation and not stored on our servers. Staff are instructed not to hold payment card details in any format, paper or electronic.

Who we share data with: Access to customer account data is strictly controlled with physical and technological protection. 

DATA STORAGE

Data is occasionally securely transferred to our business systems providers to assist in analyzing and resolving technical issues; it is only kept for as long as needed and is not passed to any other party. We make use of third party CRM systems to track and quality control some sales order progresses, which may use overseas data storage. These systems are fully compliant with EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework requirements. We do not sell customer data or share data with external marketing companies. Document data is sent securely to our document management provider and processed securely for printing and postage of invoices and statements. If you apply for a credit account with us, we may share your details with external credit reference agencies and credit insurance companies.

We do not share customer contact details and email addresses with external marketing companies. 

Data may be shared with law enforcement and other government agencies where we are legally compelled to do so. Storage of data: We store customer account data and sales records for as long as reasonably needed to legitimately deal with customer enquiries relating to historical transactions and perform contractual obligations. We are legally required to hold some data for longer periods of time. We endeavor to delete all obsolete or unnecessary data in a timely manner.
