Stewart Foil Ltd is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of all information it is entrusted with, and we take the utmost care to ensure that any personal data we obtain in the course of business is used for the purpose intended and not used in a way that you are unaware of or are not agreeable to.
Customer data collection / what data do we collect?
We only collect and record the minimum contact information required for the efficient conduct of our business.
In order to allow for the efficient conduct of our business it is necessary to collect and record certain data (depending on circumstances) such as contact names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail address, bank account details, debit card details, transaction details, credit history details of customers, employees and suppliers.
We do not record or store any ‘special category data’.
An absence of sufficient information in this regard may give rise to Stewart Foil Ltd being unable to provide such products or services to you in the appropriate manner.
Your personal information may be stored by Stewart Foil Ltd on a computerised database in our Administration System or in any other secure manner. Any personal information which you provide to us when you apply for a product or hold an account with us will be used in accordance with the terms and conditions of the agreement which you have entered into with us and in accordance with EU Regulation 2016/679 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In terms of the act we would be considered ‘data controllers’. Due to our size we are not required to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) but we are appointing a ‘Responsible Person’ who will monitor our compliance with the act.
Who do we share this information with?
When providing our services to you we may share your information with third parties. It is likely that we will need to share your data with:
- Our agents, suppliers and sub-contractors to facilitate the performance of contracts agreed. For example, we may ask a haulier, shipping line or airline to transport goods on our behalf, or a software supplier to maintain our operating software, or an IT support company to provide us with IT and other related services.
- Other parties where we are legally obliged to do so.
How long will we store data?
We have a regulatory requirement to maintain records for a minimum of 6 years, after which time it will be destroyed if it is no longer required for the lawful purpose(s) for which it was obtained. If you consent to direct marketing, any information we use for this purpose will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information.
