2. Personal data we collect about you.

The personal data we ask you to supply as part of registering your interest is as follows:

·        Your name (first name and last name)

·        The name and postal address of your school

·        A contact telephone number and email address

·        Optional information relating to your enquiry

In the event of our using an external marketing service provider, said organisation may collect data such as your IP address and information about the browser and type of device you use with the legitimate interest of monitoring and analyzing aggregated statistical and demographic data.


This data is, however, not considered personal data by law as it does not directly, nor indirectly, reveal your identity. We may share this data with our third party agency to identify specific areas on our website that a customer interacts with to help us formulate our marketing strategy. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate a percentage of users accessing a certain area or page on one of our websites. If we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data, it will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


3. How is personal data collected?

We collect personal data from you in a number of different ways:

·        you may share information with us in order to register your enquiry online;

·        we may collect technical and usage data such as IP address, browser type, time zone settings, current location, operating system and information regarding the device(s) you have used to access our website and how you have used our website.


4. How we use your personal data

We use your personal data only when the law allows us to. We most commonly use your personal data in the following circumstances...

·        When you register an interest in a shade and we need to provide personalised online content or posted, printed resources in relation to your enquiry.

·        where it is considered necessary for our legitimate interests, or those of a third party, and your interests, as long as your fundamental rights do not override these;

·        where we are required to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

·        managing our relationship with you (for example, asking you for feedback on any shade installation);

·        send email communications if explicit consent has been provided in order for us to do so;

·        use of data analytics to improve the website, products, marketing and user experience;

·        For internal reporting purposes to help us measure the success and impact we are generating on a regional and national scale.


Third Parties

We may share your personal data with the following categories of third parties:

·        With your consent, agencies whom we have retained to assist us to conduct promotional and marketing activity as well as provide technical assistance and support.

We will also disclose your personal data to third parties:

·        if we are under a legal duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or any lawful request from any legal or regulatory authority; or

·        to respond to any claims, and to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

Most third parties with whom we share your personal data are limited (by law and by contract) in their ability to use your personal data for the specific purposes identified by us. These third parties are themselves subject to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). They will be responsible for their own processing of personal data to the extent that processing is subject to, or relates to, those regulations.

We will always ensure that any third parties with whom we share your personal data are subject to privacy and security obligations consistent with this privacy notice and applicable laws.

We will ensure that we get your opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any external third parties that we use for email marketing purposes.


Opting Out

You have the right to ask us or third parties to request that we remove your email address from our database which can take up to 2 working days to complete.

If we wish to use your personal data for any other purpose, we will update this privacy notice and inform you.


5. Your legal rights

Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which are designed to protect your personal data, we need to have what is called a lawful basis time we use, share or otherwise process your personal data. When you use our site(s) to register for one of our accreditations, the processing of your personal data is necessary to allow you to complete the accreditation, receive any online or printed resources and to allow us to provide you with support.

When we say "legitimate interests", we mean ours (or a third party's) interests in operating the service as efficiently and securely as possible. For example, we may choose to use a third party to store your personal data; we may do this because our use of that service means that your personal data is more secure.

In order for you to receive the full benefit of our site(s), such as completing one of our accreditations or receive marketing communications, we will need your consent to collect and use your personal data. Under these circumstances, we will inform you of how the data you provide will be collected, stored and used before seeking your consent. In addition, you will be informed how to withdraw or modify your consent at any time.

You may withdraw your consent, or object to our processing of your personal data in a certain way (where you have the right to do so), by contacting us via the contact us email address detailed on our website.


What are your rights in relation to your personal data?

You have certain rights in relation to your personal data; those rights will not necessarily apply in all cases or to all personal data which is processed by us.

For example, certain rights will not apply where we need to process personal data to comply with our legal duties.

You have the right to request that we:

·        provide you with a copy of any personal data which we hold about you;

·        update any of your personal data which is out of date or incorrect;

·        delete any personal data which we hold about you;

·        restrict the way that we process your personal data;

·        consider any valid objections which you have to our use of your personal data; or

·        provide your personal data to a third party provider of services.

We will consider all such requests (including whether they apply in a particular case) and provide our response within the time period stated by applicable law which is 30 days (1 month of receipt)

When you make a request, we will acknowledge your request and we may ask you to provide us with some further information to allow us to confirm your identity.

Any changes we make to our privacy notice in the future will be notified to you in the next communication from us to you such as a new order or a newsletter that you have consented to receive.
