How we use your information
We only ever use your personal data with your consent, or to the extent necessary to:
enter into, or perform, a contract with you;
comply with a legal duty
remember your preferences e.g. if you ask not to receive marketing material, we will keep a record of this, or
for our own (or third party’s) lawful interests (such as marketing, internal record keeping, market research or to improve our products) provided your rights don’t override these.
We will only use your information for the purpose it was collected (or for similar/related purposes). This includes using your personal data to the extent necessary to perform our contractual obligations (such as administering your account(s) and providing you with services).
The legal basis for Chester Barrie processing customer personal data
We use customers’ personal data because it is necessary for:
- the pursuit of our legitimate interests (as set out below)
- the purposes of complying with our duties and exercising our rights under a contract of sale of goods to a customer; or
- complying with our legal obligations.
We generally only rely on consent as a legal basis for processing personal data in relation to sending direct marketing communications to customers via e-mail or text message.
You have a right to withdraw consent at any time. Where consent is the only legal basis for processing, we will cease to process data after consent is withdrawn.
We use personal information (such as email addresses) to market and promote our services to you.
You can choose to “opt out” of Chester Barrie’s marketing communications by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of our emails. If you wish to change your contact details or preferences please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sharing data with third Parties
From time to time we may need to share your personal data with our service providers which would include IT, delivery and marketing service providers. This would only be done if necessary when the third parties are contractually obligated to protect your data and securely deal with it; and when they have appropriate data protection and security controls in place so that they can only use your data to provide services to Prominent (Europe) Limited and to you, and for no other purposes.
Aside from our service providers we will not disclose your personal data to any third party, except as set out below. We will never sell or rent our customer data to other organisations for marketing purposes.
We may share your data with :
- Governmental bodies, Regulators, Law Enforcement Agencies, Courts/Tribunals and Insurers where we are required to do so
- to comply with our legal obligations
- to exercise our legal rights (for example in court cases)
- for the prevention, detection, investigation of crime or prosecution of offenders; and
- for the protection of our employees and customers.
Information for email recipients
This policy primarily covers how we use data relating to our customers, prospects, website visitors and people who interact with or do business with us. In these cases we will be the “data controller” for the purposes of data protection law.
We willingly hold information about our customer’s contacts for the duration of their contract with us, after which all data will be removed. We may store logs of addresses we have sent email to for up to 12 months after that point for the purposes of compliance and system monitoring.
Our view is that “spam” (unsolicited commercial email) has a negative impact on the internet and those who use it. It squanders resources and wastes the time and money of recipients.
If you have received an email or other communication that you believe is spam or in violation of our acceptable use policies, please contact our abuse team at email@example.com.
Security - How we protect your data
We employ a variety of technical and organisational measures to keep personal data safe and to prevent unauthorised access to, or use or disclosure of it which include:-
- encryption of data
- security controls which protect the entire Prominent (Europe) Ltd’s IT infrastructure from external attack and unauthorised access; and
- internal policies setting out our data security approach and training for employees.
We normally only store data within the European Economic Area (EEA). If one of our subcontractors (such as a payment processor) needs to transfer it outside of the EEA then we will take steps to ensure adequate levels of privacy protection, in line with UK data protection law, already in place. These safeguards will usually be contractual and/or the result of a European Union decision which allows transfer such as a US organisation that is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.
We remove most information to us by clients as soon as services are ceased, and data will cycle out of long term backups in up to 12 months. We store logs of outbound emails for up to 12 months after the email is sent for the purposes of handling abuse complaints and compliance monitoring.
We will continue to store limited information about the client (including transaction records) for up to 6 years for accounting, record keeping and administrative purposes. If we consider that there is a need to store records for longer (for example, the transaction has been the subject of a dispute or claim) then we will retain the data for as long as is necessary.
