How will we use the information about you?
The information that we collect about you will only be used lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the General Data Protection Regulation 2018). All data is retained exclusively within the United Kingdom, or transferred only to ‘third countries’ where ‘adequacy of protection’ or specific certification as defined by The GDPR has been confirmed. These are primarily our Capsule (CRM) and Freshbooks (invoicing) systems, which are cloud-based. Any information you send via a form from our website is encrypted and sent to a secure encrypted email account at ProtonMail, based in Switzerland.
We use the details provided by business contacts to email them with news of developments within the company and new services. To do this we use the third country bulk email provider Mailchimp (USA) to store and deliver email marketing to these subscribers, provided they have given their consent.
We also provide an optional live messaging service, ‘LiveChat’, to communicate with prospects on our website. LiveChat stores information you provide to us as a transcript which we can use to provide quotations and advice. LiveChat servers are based in the EU.
This information will not be disclosed to anyone outside Elsey Adcock Design or its associated companies, partners, and other companies with which Elsey Adcock Design has arranged services for your benefit, such as print suppliers and delivery services.
Access to your information and correction
We expect the information we hold to be accurate and up to date. You have the right as an individual to find out what information we hold about you and make changes if necessary; you also have the right, assuming we are not obligated by law to refuse, to ask us to stop using the information. To request personal information we hold about you complete the form here. To request we delete the personal information we hold about you complete the form here. To instruct us to correct any errors please email your new information to us here.
What information do we collect about you?
The type of information that we will collect on you, and you voluntarily provide to us on this website and our enquiry form includes:
- Your name
- Telephone number(s)
- Email address
- Your request
- IP address
We may, in further dealings with you, extend this information to include your address, purchases, services used, and subscriptions, records of conversations and agreements and payment transactions.
You are under no statutory or contractual requirement or obligation to provide us with your personal information; however we require at least the information above in order for us to deal with you as a prospect or customer in an efficient and effective manner.
On what legal basis do we collect your information?
The legal basis for processing your data is based on your specific consent to receive marketing information if you have opted to receive it, or the performance of a contract that we will have requested/stated at the point the information was initially provided, therefore we will not store, process or transfer your data outside the parties detailed above unless we have an appropriate lawful reason to do so. Unless we are precluded from doing so by law, you have the right to remove your consent at any time via the unsubscribe link included on all emails we send, or by contacting us and requesting that processing of your details be restricted or deleted.
How long will we store information about you?
Unless otherwise required by law, your data will be stored for a period of 2 years after our last contact with you, at which point it will be deleted.
