Legitimate interest - In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.

Sensitive Personal Data
There may be instances where it is necessary for you to share information with us containing special categories of personal information or ‘sensitive personal data’. This relates to things such as details of medical conditions which you may need to share with us so we are able to meet your specific requirements when providing our goods and services.
Due to the sensitive nature of this information, we will only take it from you if you have given us your explicit consent and it is necessary for us to do so. We will also inform you of what we will do with this information and who we will share it with.
If you believe we have not complied with your rights, you can complain to the Information Commissioner by visiting their website https://ico.org.uk/.
How and why do we use your personal data?
We want to give you the best possible customer experience. One way to achieve that is to get the best picture we can of who you are by combining the data we have about you. We then use this to offer you promotions, products and services that are most likely to interest you. The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of customer service.
Here’s how we’ll use your personal data and why:
To process any orders that you make by using our websites, over the phone or at one of our show sites. If we don’t collect your personal data during checkout, we won’t be able to process your order and comply with our legal obligations.
For example, your details may need to be passed to a third party to supply or deliver the product that you ordered and we may keep your details for an indefinite period afterwards in order to fulfil any contractual obligations such as refunds and warranty claims.
Sometimes, we’ll need to share your details with a third party who is providing a service (such as delivery couriers). We do so to maintain our order contract with you. Without sharing your personal data, we’d be unable to fulfil your request.
How we protect your personal data
We know how much data security matters to all our customers. With this in mind we will treat your data with the utmost care and take all appropriate steps to protect it.
We secure access to all transactional areas of our websites using ‘https’ technology.
Access to your personal data is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as payment card information) is secured by SSL encryption.
How long will we keep your personal data?
All data relating to your order (your name, delivery address, email, phone number, order details) is kept indefinitely. You have the right to completely remove all of your details from our data, however please consider if you think you'll need any spare parts or need to process a warranty claim in the future. We use past order history to help select the correct parts for you. To request that your account and all data is completely removed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
All data relating to your sales enquiry within our business (your name, address, phone number, email) is kept for a period of 5 years. If you have not entered into a contract with us within this time period your details will be deleted.
Who do we share your personal data with?
We sometimes share your personal data with trusted third parties.
For example, delivery couriers.
Here’s the policy we apply to those organisations to keep your data safe and protect your privacy:
- We provide only the information they need to perform their specific services.
- They may only use your data for the exact purposes we specify in our contract with them.
- We work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected at all times.
Examples of the kind of third parties we work with are:
