Justification for collecting, using and storing your personal information
Laws about personal data vary from country to country and as a UK based business we are required by the EU data protection laws to have a legal basis or lawful ground for handling personal information.
This means that we must have a legal justification for processing, storing and sometimes sharing your personal information. In the main, we use the data which you provide to deliver the products and services that you have ordered or requested from us.
Beyond using your personal information to deliver these core services, sometimes we use your personal data for beneficial but non-essential purposes. This is known as legitimate interest which may include but is not limited to analysing consumer activity on our website.
Some of the information you share with us is optional. For instance, when you register your guarantee. You can ask us to remove optional information at any time by phoning us on +44 (0) 1924 666633, or by emailing us at email@example.com or in writing by sending your request to the following address:
