Protecting your personal details on this website
The Website is brought to you by Dave Maffris. It is important to protect your Personal Data and I am committed to giving you a personalized service that meets your needs in a way that also protects your privacy. This policy explains how I may collect Personal Data about you. It also explains some of the security measures I take to protect your Personal Data, and tells you certain things I will do and not do. You should read this policy in conjunction with the Website Terms.
I do not collect any sensitive Personal Data, such as age, race, ethnic origin, etc.
1. Collecting Information
I may collect Personal Data about you from a number of sources, including the following:
1.1. From you when you agree to take a service or product from me, in which case this may include your contact details, how you will pay for the product or service, and your bank details.
1.2. From you when you contact me with an inquiry or in response to a communication from me, in which case, this may tell me something about how you use my services.
1.3. From documents that are available to the public.
2. Using Your Personal Information
2.1. Personal Data about my customers is an important part of my business. I do not store credit card details nor do I share customer details with any 3rd parties. I shall only use your Personal Data for the following purposes and shall not keep such Personal Data longer than is necessary to fulfill these purposes:
2.1.1. To help me to identify you when you contact me.
2.1.2. To help me to identify accounts, services and/or products which you could have from me from time to time.
2.1.3. To help me to administer and to contact you about improved administration of any accounts, services, and products I have provided before, do provide now or will or may provide in the future.
2.1.4. To allow me to carry out marketing analysis and customer profiling (including with transactional information), conduct research, including creating statistical and testing information.
2.1.5. To help to prevent and detect fraud or loss.
2.1.6. To allow me to contact you in any way (including mail, email, telephone, visit, text, or multimedia messages) about products and services offered by me unless you have previously asked me not to do so.
2.1.7. We may monitor and record communications with you (including phone conversations and emails) for quality assurance and compliance.
2.1.8. I may check your details with fraud prevention agencies. If you provide false or inaccurate information and we suspect fraud, I will record this.
2.3. I may allow other people and organisations to use Personal Data we hold about you in the following circumstances:
2.3.1. If I, or substantially all of my assets, are acquired or are in the process of being acquired by a third party, in which case Personal Data held by us, about our customers, will be one of the transferred assets.
2.3.2. If I have been legitimately asked to provide information for legal or regulatory purposes or as part of legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings.
2.5. In connection with any transaction which I enter into with you:
2.5.1. I, and other companies in my group, may carry out credit and fraud prevention checks with one or more licensed credit reference and fraud prevention agencies. I and they may keep a record of the search. Information held about you by these agencies may be linked to records relating to other people living at the same address with whom you are financially linked. These records will also be taken into account in credit and fraud prevention checks. Information from your application and payment details of your account will be recorded with one or more of these agencies and may be shared with other organizations to help make credit and insurance decisions about you and members of your household with whom you are financially linked and for debt collection and fraud prevention. This includes those who have moved house and who have missed payments.
2.5.2. If you provide false or inaccurate information to us and I suspect fraud, I will record this and may share it with other people and organizations. I, and other credit and insurance organizations, may also use technology to detect and prevent fraud.
3. Protecting Information
I have strict security measures to protect Personal Data.
3.1. I work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
3.2. I reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
3.3. I maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage, and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. These security procedures mean that I may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
3.4. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
4. The Internet
4.1. If you communicate with me using the Internet, I may occasionally email you about our services and products. When you first give me Personal Data through the Website, I will normally give you the opportunity to say whether you would prefer us not to contact you by email. You can also always send me an email (at the address set out below) at any time if you change your mind.
4.2. Please remember that communications over the Internet, such as emails and webmails (messages sent through a website), are not secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered - this is the nature of the Internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorized access or loss of Personal Data that is beyond our control.
