We at Trades Centre view our customers` privacy with utmost importance and guarantee to never release your personal details to any outside company for mailing or marketing purposes. We may contact you occasionally via email with offers and information that may be of interest to you, but you may unsubscribe from this service at any time by following the instructions within the email. All information gathered including any evidence given at the time of ordering is collected lawfully and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective as of 25th of May 2018. If you have a query regarding privacy, please don’t be hesitate to contact us - we will be more than happy to provide you with an answer.
Any and all data we collect from our clients, such as first name, last name, address, e-mail, phone number, and any other similar information requested during the registration process, is kept in compliance with the existing data protection laws. The above personal information they have disclosed with us is used solely by Trades Centre Ltd. Our goal by asking them for it is to enable the opportunity to order and receive any and all products available on the website or in the store. The information in question will not be accessible by third parties, except for the delivery companies we work with – Royal Mail and Parcel Force, and we provide them with the bare minimum of information so that they can deliver your goods to the client’s address. The personal data is kept on our database for a maximum period of 5 years, or until our clients decide to remove it, by asking our staff members to do it for them. Our clients keep the right to export this information and ask for it to be changed or removed (in case they can’t do it manually). The personal information our employees come in contact is limited to the minimum they require to carry their work-related tasks and they are compelled by contract to never provide it to third parties. Trades Centre Ltd will not collect any sensitive data, such as origin, ethnicity, sexual preference and so on.
SECURITY OF TRANSACTIONS
Our online payment facilities are entirely managed by SagePay - the UK leader of online merchant solutions, one of which is used to process card payments on our website. We have selected the option where credit card data is only processed on the secure SagePay servers, which provides us only with a confirmation about the status of the transaction.
We believe this model is an ideal solution for our business and safest for our customers' card payments.
We use a "basket" facility in order to provide you with a satisfying shopping experience on our website. This type of feature is highly dependable on Cookies, where we store elements of your selected products. Once you have completed a sale, the 'cookie' is deleted. No personal data is held in it, as it is just a reference number to identify the items you have in your basket.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can manually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. The cookies do not give us access to your computer or any information about you.
