If this happens, we may have to cancel, or be unable to provide, any services you have requested.
  • We may collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered “personal data” in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your website usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature.  However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
  • If you provide us with any personal data relating to relatives, partners or other individuals, it is your duty to make such persons aware that their personal data may be shared with us, and to provide them with appropriate information about how their personal data may be processed by us.

  • They provide products, services or research on behalf of Stannah, for example sub-contractors supplying electrical services, or providing administrative, processing, development, analytical or other services to help us in our sales, marketing, digital, administration and product development activities.

  1. Data transfers

We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an “adequate” level of protection for personal data by the UK and the European Commission.

Where we use service providers based outside the UK and EEA, we may use specific contract clauses approved for use in the UK and EEA which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK and EEA.

  1. How long we keep your personal data

All personal data will be held in accordance with our company retention and deletion policy. We only keep your personal data for as long as we need to, so that we can use it for the reasons described above. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirement. By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity, financial and transaction data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

To make sure that you do not receive marketing from us after you have told us to stop sending it, we need to keep a record of that instruction with your contact details. We shall hold that information until you tell us otherwise.
