The information that we hold about you
In order that we can provide our services to you, we collect personal information about you (such as your name, postal address, email address, phone numbers, date of birth, payment details) when you sign up to participate in or receive a service from us such as getting quote, live chat, making a telephone enquiry, managing your account online, checking-in online, or face to face if you come to our site to sign a Contract. We may also collect personal information when you contact us, send us feedback, complete customer surveys and participate in any competitions.
We do not normally collect, store or use more Sensitive Personal Data or “special categories of data” as it is known under the GDPR. Sensitive Personal Data requires a higher level of protection.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We may have to share your personal data with third parties, including our suppliers and other entities within Tentec Security Solutions Ltd.
We will share your personal data with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. 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 requirements.
We do not use this information to develop a personal profile of you. If we do collect personally identifiable information, we will be upfront about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
