We are committed to care about your privacy and we strive for a high level of protection in all processing of personal data. This policy sets out how we will treat your personal information. We also comply with all applicable laws and regulations such as the Data Protection Act (DPA), Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation (PECR) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
If you have any questions about this information, or if you wish to exercise any of your rights as set out below or under any applicable law or regulation, please contact us via the contact information listed below.
Why do we collect and store the personal data?
We collect personal data to enable us to recruit, employ, support and manage our employees, to provide adequate training of our employees and representatives, to protect the health and safety of our employees and visitors to our premises, to promote our products and services, to enable us to sell and provide products and services to our customers, and to document our activities and maintain our accounts and records in relation hereto.
What personal data do we collect and store?
We may collect and store the following types of personal data:
- Contact data, such as name, title, phone numbers, mailing addresses, and e-mail addresses;
- Communication submitted by you, such as orders, questions, and feedback;
- Information about your visits to and use of our websites, such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views, for the purpose of improving our websites;

- For employees: employment related details such as personal identification numbers, salary, bank account numbers, health status, next-of-kin information, education, union affiliation, and performance evaluations.
How do we use your personal data?
In addition to the uses identified elsewhere in this policy, we may use your personal data to:

- Provide our suppliers, distributors and similar entities with relevant information; and
- For employees: enable the customary relation between employer and employee.
We will not without your expressed consent or as required by law provide your personal data to any third parties.
In addition to the disclosures reasonably necessary for the purposes identified elsewhere in this policy, we may disclose information about you:
- To the extent that we are required to do so by law;
- In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings; and
- In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights, including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk.
International data transfers
It may be necessary to transfer personal data overseas. When such transfers are required, information may be transferred to countries or territories anywhere in the world. Any transfers made will be in full compliance with all aspects of the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific legislation applicable.
Protection of your personal data
The security of your personal data is important to us. We have put in place technical and organizational safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your personal data. We protect your personal data against unauthorized access, use and disclosure, using security technologies and procedures such as encryption and access controls.
The safety and security of your personal data also depend on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a personal password for access to certain parts of our information resources, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You may not share your personal password with anyone. We will not assume liability for breach of this policy owing to misuse of your personal password by any third party.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not always completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data when transmitted to or from our online interfaces. Any such transmission of personal data is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained in the interfaces to our information resources.
We may update this policy from time-to-time by posting a new version on our websites. This may be done without notice. You should therefore check this document regularly, and in particular when you are about to provide us with personal data. You may at any time revoke our right to store and use your personal data, whether as a result of a change of the policy or not.
How long will we keep personal data?
We do not store your personal data longer than necessary, given the nature of the data, the context under which it was collected, and the purpose of the potential processing, unless otherwise required or permitted by law.
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information may be subject to the payment of a reasonable fee for the administration of your request.
You may instruct us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. In practice, you will usually either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal data for marketing purposes, or we will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of the use of your personal data for marketing purposes.
Applicable data protection laws and regulations might provide you with certain rights regarding our collection, storage and processing of your personal data that may or may not be covered by this policy. Accordingly this policy does not necessarily describe all of your rights. However, whether also stated in laws and regulations or not, you may always exercise rights as described in detail below.
Access, update, restriction, and deletion
You can review, change, update and delete your personal data. You can also request us to restrict our use of the data. However, if you request deletion of your personal data, we reserve the right to only delete your personal data when we no longer have a lawful basis for retaining such data.
To the extent the personal data you provide to us is processed based on your consent, you have the right to request that we provide you a copy of, or access to, all or parts of such personal data in structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format. You also have the right to request that we transmit this personal data to another controller, when technically feasible.
Withdrawal of consent
To the extent that our storage and processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time by exercising your rights as described below. However, withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of the storage and processing based on your consent before its withdrawal, and it will not affect the lawfulness of our continued storage and processing that is based on any other lawful basis for storage and processing of your personal data.
How you exercise your rights
You exercise any of the above rights by sending a message detailing your request to the data controller address as outlined below, either vi mail or e-mail. If you contact us to exercise any of the foregoing rights, we may ask you for information to verify your identity. We reserve the right to limit or deny your request if you have failed to provide sufficient information to verify your identity or to otherwise satisfy our legal and business requirements.
You also have the right to lodge complaints against us with the applicable data protection authority in the country you live or work in. However, before doing so, we request that you contact us directly to give us an opportunity to work directly with you to resolve any concerns about your privacy.
