- Why we value your privacy
We value your privacy as much as we do our own, so we're committed to keeping your personal and business information safe. We're uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so we ask for only the bare minimum from our customers. We'll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and we'll never give anyone access to it unless we're forced to by law.
How we collect information
We collect your email address when you contact us for a quote or query so we can respond.
We ask for your account and contact information when you hire or buy something from us.
Occasionally, we might receive your contact information from one of our partners. If we do, we protect it in exactly the same way as if you give it to us directly.
What information we hold
When you contact us by email or through our website, we collect your name, email address and phone number.
When you buy something from us, we collect your name, email address, phone number, and a delivery address.
If you do business with us, we also collect your business name and bank details and keep records of the invoices we send you and the payments you make.
What we use your information for
We use your contact information to send you details of our products and services in response to a requested quote. We might also email or phone you about our products and services, but if you tell us not to, we won't get in touch again. We will use your information to send you invoices, statements, or reminders.
