The type of personal data we hold

The personal data which we collect from you will usually include basic contact details such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.

From time to time, we may also collect other data from you depending on why you have contacted us.    For example you might need to use our courtesy vehicle therefore we may take your driving licence details.

From time to time, we may run prize competitions or promotions and when you wish to enter a competition or sign up for a promotion, we will also collect information from you then.  

If you contact us in your capacity as a representative of the organisation for which you work (rather than in a personal capacity), for example if you raise a trade enquiry, then we may take your job title and role.

If you contact us through our website by using the contact form, by telephone, email or write to us, the content of those communications may also include other personal data and we may also keep a copy of that correspondence on our records.

If you send us information because you are interested in working for us then we would usually invite you to submit a CV.   That information may therefore include details of your employment and education history, salary information and other detail relevant to a job application.  We will use this information to assess your application but may also retain it on our records for future reference.

We might in some cases, collect information which includes sensitive personal data. This might relate to any health issue or disability if for example, you come for a job interview.
