We collect information about you from different places including;

How we will use your information

To carry out our obligations arising from any contract entered into between you and us and to notify you about changes to our service.

We may use your data to provide you with information about goods and services which may be of interest to you and we may contact you about these, unless you ask us not to.

If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by telephone, mail or electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you, unless you ask us not to.

IP addresses

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

Who we can share your information with

We may share your information with others outside of Evolution Fasteners (UK) Ltd, e.g. credit reference agencies and insurers. We will not share any of the information you provide with any third parties for marketing purposes or store any of your information outside of the EEA.

How long we will keep your information

We will keep your information for as long as you have a relationship with us. After it ends we will keep it where we may need it for our legitimate purposes, e.g. to help us respond to queries, complaints, or for other reasons, e.g. responding to requests from regulators. We do not collect more information than we need to fulfil our stated purposes and will not retain it for longer than is necessary

Control over your information

Under the General Data Protection Regulation, you have several important rights available to you. In summary, those include rights to: be informed about how your information is being used (hopefully this privacy policy explains it all), access the information we hold about you, request that we transfer elements of your data to another service provider, request us to correct any mistakes in your information which we hold, request the erasure of information concerning you in certain situations, receive the information concerning you which you have provided to us, in a structured format, stop any direct marketing, object to processing of your data

Where we store your data

The data that we collect from you will be stored at our UK premises. It will be processed by our own staff or those of our couriers/shipping agents. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order and the provision of support services. By submitting your data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Disclosure of your information

We will not disclose your personal information to third parties:

If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Evolution Fasteners (UK) Ltd, our customers, or others.

Your rights

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at sales@evolutionfasteners.co.uk.
