Naturally, if there is anything that you would like to know about how we process your personal data that you can’t see here, please get in touch.
The legal bases for storing and processing your data are contract and consent.
We need some personal information from companies and individuals as we may need to contact you to clarify details, send invoices etc. The legal basis for storing this information is contractual.
We also send out marketing emails. The legal basis for this is consent. We do not send email marketing to anyone who has not given their explicit consent.
You can request to see, rectify or delete your data at any time. Your full rights are listed at the bottom of this notice.
To make it easy for our customers to get in touch with us we provide a contact form on our website. We ask for a person’s name and basic contact details so that we can get back to them to arrange time to discuss their ideas further. We only use this data for the purposes of contacting you about your specific query. This data arrives as an email and is never stored on a database. We certainly never share this information with any third parties.
We use the third-party provider Gmail to store our emails. Deleting emails in Gmail sends them to the Trash folder where they disappear forever after 30 days.
Personal data relating to queries that do not result in a contract is deleted after one year.
Personal data relating to contracted work is deleted five years after the contract is completed.
When we receive a visitor to www.valdivianfurniture.co.uk, we use the third-party service Google Analytics to collect the standard internet log information. Google Analytics works by reading the user's IP address then setting a cookie on www.valdivianfurniture.co.uk containing a unique ID (so Google can get accurate audience figures). The IP address is then never used again. The unique ID has no personal identity information held within it.
We share this information with the third party RWD Click who use the anonymised information to compile website use statistics on which they can base any improvements to our website.
