We will not collect personal information about you when you visit our website or purchase directly from us, unless you choose to provide that information to us. If we collect that information, how we handle any information that you give to us is noted below.
The General Data Protection Regulation
Under the General Data Protection Act we have a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you. We aim to safeguard your data and keep strict security standards to prevent any unauthorised access to it. We will not pass on your details to any third party unless you give us permission to do so.
Trade Account Applications (GDPR)
In order to process your application we will supply your personal information to credit reference agencies (CRAs) and they will give us information about you, such as about your financial history. We do this to assess creditworthiness and product suitability, check your identity, manage your account, trace and recover debts and prevent criminal activity. We will also continue to exchange information about you with CRAs on an ongoing basis, including about your settled accounts and any debts not fully repaid on time. CRAs will share your information with other organisations. The identities of the CRAs, and the ways in which they use and share personal information, are explained in more detail at http://www.experian.co.uk/crain/index.html
