- Right to Access: Understand the personal data we have about you and how we process it (Art. 15 UK GDPR).

- Right to Rectification Correct any inaccuracies in your personal data (Art. 16 UK GDPR).

- Right to Erasure: Request the deletion of your stored data (Art. 17 UK GDPR).

If you've granted consent, you can revoke it at any point in the future. You also have the right to raise a complaint with the UK’s supervisory authority, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). Their contact details can be found at the ICO's official website.

CONTACT FORM:

- Purpose and Basis: Your inputted data is stored to facilitate personalized communication. This requires a valid e-mail address and name, aiding in the categorization and reply to your query. Additional data provision is optional. This processing is based on our legitimate interest (Art 6 para. 1 lit. f UK GDPR). For quote inquiries, data from the contact form will be processed for pre-contractual actions (Art 6 para. 1 lit. b UK GDPR).

- Recipients: Data might be shared with relevant data processors.

- Retention Period: Data is deleted at most 6 months post query handling. Should a contractual agreement arise, we'll abide by the UK's statutory retention periods and erase your data after their conclusion.

- Mandatory Provision: While providing personal details is voluntary, to process your query, your name, e-mail address, and reason for inquiry are necessary.

USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS:

- Purpose and Basis: This site utilizes Google Analytics for analysing site usage. Google Analytics leverages "cookies" to analyse your use. Data generated is generally sent and stored on a US-based Google server. However, IP anonymization on this site means your IP address is truncated by Google within the European Economic Area. Only in rare scenarios is the full IP transferred and truncated in the US. Google will evaluate website usage on our behalf, compile activity reports, and offer additional internet and website usage services. The IP address forwarded by Google Analytics will not be amalgamated with other Google data. This data processing relies on user consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a UK GDPR).

- Recipients: Google acts as our data processor, and we've entered into a corresponding agreement with them.

- Retention Period* Data is purged when no longer essential for our documentation.

- International Data Transfer: Google processes data in the US. Although Google adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield, we've also entered into standard contractual clauses with them for added protection.

- Mandatory Provision: Granting access to your personal data is voluntary and based on your consent. If denied, it may result in diminished website functionality.

You can opt out by setting up your browser to reject cookies. Alternatively, you can prevent Google from processing cookie-generated data (including your IP) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

SOCIAL MEDIA LINKS AND SOCIAL SHARING:

We offer social media links and sharing options on our site. Utilizing these links directs you to third-party platforms (like Facebook, Twitter, Google+). Once redirected, you fall under the jurisdiction of the third-party's data policies. We recommend logging out of these platforms before using these links to prevent unnecessary data transfers.

SSL ENCRYPTION:

To safeguard your data, we employ cutting-edge encryption methods (e.g., SSL) over HTTPS.

CHANGES TO OUR DATA PROTECTION POLICY:

We may update this policy to align with legal mandates or to reflect new services. Updated policies will be effective upon your subsequent visit.
