Under the new 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Act which comes into force on the 25th May 2018, we need to ensure that we are fully compliant with the new regulations.
In particular with regard to data collection and retention, all data entered on our websites is encrypted and securely held behind an SSL (secure socket layer) and instantaneously entered into our lead generation system held on external secure servers.
Should any consumers whom enter their details into our systems want their details deleted, they can contact us via the form on this page. Once we contact our lead management system, they perform a soft deletion (from our interface) with a 7 day cooling off period. Once the 7 day period expires that data is hard deleted, from all servers and systems.
We understand that privacy and the security of your personal information is extremely important. Because of that, this policy sets out what we do with your information and what we do to keep it secure. It also explains where and how we collect your personal information, as well as your rights over any personal information we hold about you.
WHO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH
We work with registered partners, insurers and agencies so that they can use your personal information on our behalf, but only where they meet our standards on the processing of data and security.
We only share information that allows them to fulfil your enquiry and enable them to provide their services to you.
You have the right to request:
Access to the personal data we hold about you, free of charge in the majority of cases.
The correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
For example, when you withdraw your consent to hold information, or object and we have no legitimate overriding reason to hold this data or once the purpose for which we held the data has come to an end (such as the end of your warranty).
That we stop using your personal data for direct marketing (either through specific channels, or all channels).
