3. How we use the information we collect
Orchard Building Solutions Ltd will use the personal information you supply to respond to your enquiries, to manage the work we do for you, and to tell you about other products or services that may be of interest to you.
If you have opted in to receive marketing information from us and are not a customer, we may send you regular marketing emails. We will not share your information for marketing purposes with third parties.
4. Will you share my personal information with anyone else?
We will keep your information within Orchard Building Solutions Ltd except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies) or as described in this section and section 5.
Generally, we will use your information within the company and will only share it outside where you have requested it or given your consent.
However, we may share with third party sites (e.g. Facebook and LinkedIn) some data, with appropriate security measures, to show you relevant advertising on third party sites.
We may disclose your personal data to our insurers or professional advisers for the purposes of obtaining and maintaining insurance coverage, managing risks, obtaining professional advice and managing legal disputes.
We may disclose some personal information to our suppliers or subcontractors insofar as is reasonably necessary for them to carry out the work you have contracted us to do.
We require these third parties to comply strictly with our instructions and we require that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.
5. International transfers
Sometimes we use third parties to process or store your information on our behalf, for example storing data using Cloud services for accounting, marketing or database administration.
Many of our third parties service providers are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we do our best to ensure a similar degree of security of data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is in place:
- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data by; or
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or
- If we use US-based providers that are part of EU-US Privacy Shield, we may transfer data to them, as they have equivalent safeguards in place.
If none of the above safeguards is available, we may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
6. How long we keep your personal information
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.
7. How can I access or delete my information?
You can request a copy of the information we hold on you at any time by writing to us. We will need evidence of your identity in order to process such a request and we will respond to your request within 30 days of the date you send it to us. If we are unable to supply your information within that time, we will let you know. We may withhold personal information that you request to the extent permitted by law.
You can also request that all information we hold on you is deleted, subject to where we need to keep it for legal reasons (e.g. accounting purposes or for legal disputes).
