The data controller for all personal data collected via this website is Rennicks UK Limited with its registered office at 7 Stuart Road, Manor Park, Runcorn, Cheshire, WA7 1TS. This means that we are responsible for deciding what data we collect and how we hold and use your personal data. We will implement appropriate data security measures for protecting the data from unauthorised access and loss, as laid out in the Security section of this Policy.
The Company collects and maintains a variety of personally identifiable information, including names, email addresses, phone numbers, business addresses, demographic information such as the local authority area or industry sector of the business and details of the Company products the users may be interested in. The Company collects information directly from individuals or from the parent companies of the individuals. The information could be collected through e-mails, phone calls, online registration forms, event registration forms and face to face meetings. The Company does not collect personal data about individuals except when there is a legitimate business requirement or when such information is provided on a voluntary basis.
Purpose of Processing
The personal data collected is used by the Company to give you information in relation to the Company’s products and services, the Company’s website, customer administration, prospecting new customers, account management with existing customers, to process and respond to queries received from the public or other relevant stakeholders, and to send marketing communications on the Company’s behalf. The Company may perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics to measure interest in and the use of various sections of the website. The personal data held by the Company may also be used on an aggregate basis without any personal identifiers to provide third parties with information in order to help us develop new services and products, improve the features and content of the website or other marketing material.
We also receive data through networking (e.g. business cards, event registrations) and add these details, if relevant, onto our CRM or other data management system. We may on occasion purchase ‘opt-in’ data (lists from reputable providers) for promotional campaigns. You can choose to opt in or out of further contact with us.
The personal data collected is stored in the Company’s CRM system and other appropriate data management systems, both paper based and electronic. Personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to any third party except if permission has first been obtained from the users. The data will not be transferred to any agency located outside the EU. At regular intervals, we will:
- review the length of time we keep your personal data for
- consider the purpose or purposes for which we hold your personal data for in deciding whether (and for how long) to retain it
- securely delete information that is no longer needed for that purpose or those purposes
- update, archive or securely delete information if it goes out of date.
The Company uses reasonable measures to safeguard personally identifiable information. The implemented measures will be appropriate to the type of information maintained and compliance with all relevant legislation governing protection of personal information. Measures are implemented to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the personal information. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to only those employees, contractors or agents who have a legitimate business need to have access to that data. The employees, contractors or agents will process your personal data in accordance with our instructions. They will be subject to a duty of confidentiality and due care with respect to handling the personal data. The Company employs the services of a marketing agency, Sixothree Marketing Limited who will process data on behalf of the Company, in accordance with our instructions. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so. The Company’s employees are trained on data security and information protection.
The Company for its legitimate business interests, must maintain contact information on its customers and the wider business community to communicate information required to fulfil purchase contracts and any other information regarding the Company’s products or services. The Company also sends promotional material promoting its products and services, events, innovations and other relevant offerings. If you do not wish to receive marketing material, you may opt out. Every marketing e-mail will include an ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom. You may also notify the Company in writing as set out below.
We may use third party provided tools such as Hootsuite to manage our social media interactions. If you send us a private or direct message via social media the message may be stored by Hootsuite. Like other personal data, these direct messages will not be shared with any other organisations.
