Privacy Policy

We take protecting your privacy and your personal data serious. We collect, process, and use your personal data in accordance with the content of this Privacy Policy as well as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). We tried to make this as clear and understandable as possible.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, "Personal Information" is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person. We obtain Personal Information relating to you from various sources described below.

How we collect Personal Information

  • We ask for contact information including your name, company, email address, and phone number, on our website so that we can reply to your enquiry.
  • We collect your name and email address when you sign up for our newsletter.
  • We ask for your account and contact information when you buy something in our online shop.

What Personal Information we hold

  • When you contact us by email or through our website, we collect your name, email address, phone number and the company you work for, if you’ve given us that.
  • If you sign up for a newsletter, we only collect your name and your email address.
  • 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.
  • All online purchases are processed by Paypal, our ecommerce platform and we never have access to your credit card information.

Where we store your Personal Information

When you contact us by email or through our website, we store your your information in Infor Com, our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. If you sign up for a newsletter, we store your email address in MailChimp, which is the marketing platform we prefer. When you buy something, your information is stored in WooCommerce, our ecommerce platform, and if we do business, we store your information in our accounts software, Datev. We chose these systems partly for their commitment to security.

What we use your Personal Information for

We use your contact information to send you details of our products and services. When we do, you have the option to unsubscribe from these communications and we won’t send them to you again. 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.

The steps we take to keep your Personal Information private

Where we store your information in third-party services, we restrict access only to people who need it. We store passwords in an encrypted password manager, use a different, randomly generated password for each service, and never use the same password twice.

The computers we use are protected by a passcode or fingerprint access. These computers ask for authentication whenever they’re started or after 5 minutes of inactivity. Our mobile devices are also protected by a passcode, fingerprint or facial recognition.

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.

Right to access to your Personal Information

You have the right to request access and receive information about the Personal Information we maintain about you, to update and correct inaccuracies in your Personal Information, to restrict or object to the processing of your Personal Information, to have the information blocked, anonymized or deleted, as appropriate.

Please get in touch with us and inform us as to the extent of the amendment or withdrawal.
