We take your Privacy Seriously
We ask that you read this policy carefully as it contains important information about what to expect when we collect information about you and how that may be used.
This policy applies to information we collect about:
- people who do business with us/register for our services;
- people who enquire about our services;
- job applicants; and
- visitors to our website.
1. Who is collecting your data?
Data is collected by John Imrie Signs.
2. The information we collect about you
When you do business with us, register for our services or enter into a contract with us we may collect the following personal information from you, where the information is relevant to the matter we are dealing with:
- Postal address, email address and telephone numbers;
- Business activities of the person whose details we are processing.
- Occasionally we may receive information about you from other sources (such as credit reference agencies) which we will add to the information which we already hold about you in order to help us provide services.
2.2 Via our website
If you visit our website, we may collect the following information: technical information, including the Internet protocol address used to connect your computer to the internet, browser type and version, time zone, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators, clickstream to, through and from our site (including date and time), items you viewed or searched for, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from the page, social networks used to browse to our pages and any phone number used to call us.
3. Why is your data collected by us?
We mainly rely on three separate bases to lawfully process your information. Firstly, we may need to process your information in certain ways to provide our goods or services to you. This processing is necessary to perform the contract between us. Secondly, where you have given us consent to use your information in certain ways, we will rely on your consent. Thirdly, in certain cases we may process your information where necessary to further our legitimate interests, where those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests.
Occasionally we may rely on other legal bases to process your information such as to protect a user’s vital interests (such as where there is a risk of imminent harm) or to comply with a legal obligation. We may also collect data in order to run credit or fraud checks, prevent and detect crime or meet our legal and regulatory obligations.
In certain cases you may indicate to us your preferences regarding the frequency, subject matter and/or format of communications. Please contact us for further information.
4. Who will we share your information with?
We may share relevant data with our representatives or with debt collection agencies if that is necessary. In certain cases you may indicate to us your preferences regarding disclosure to third parties. Please contact us for further information.
5. How long will your information be kept?
We will hold your data for as long as it is required to fulfil our contract with you. After that, it will be held for a period of six years. If you provide us with express consent to hold your data, we will retain it for as long as we consider you might be interested in our goods or services, or until you withdraw consent.
6. Marketing information
We may wish to provide you with information about other services or products we think may be of interest to you, where that is in your interests. In that case, we will seek your consent. If you agree to us providing you with marketing information then, as indicated above, you can always opt out at a later date. We will never sell personal data, including mailing lists, on to a third party.
7. How do we protect your information?
We put in place appropriate security procedures and technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal information. This may include, in certain cases, encryption of data and use of passwords. We will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal information. However, you should be aware that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information which is transferred from you or to you via the internet.
8. Access to your information and updating and correcting your information
8.1 You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you. If you would like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please request this by emailing: [email protected].
8.2 We want to ensure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. If any of the information that you have provided to us changes, for example if you change your email address, please let us know the correct details by emailing: [email protected].
9. Sale of business
If our business is sold or integrated with another business your details may be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchasers and their advisers and will be passed on to the new owners of the business.
