Using your data to fulfil the Contract

To fulfil the request or contract we use your data to decide whether to allocate you brochure, materials or products, manage and track your request or order, update you on progress, generate delivery notes and invoices, process payments and administration generally. We may have to use third parties to help us achieve these aims in accordance with our legitimate interests (see below).

Sharing with others to deliver the contract and for legitimate interests

To help us fulfil the request or contract we share your data with these parties for the reasons below as it is in our legitimate interests to do so having taken into account all relevant factors around your privacy. If we do not engage these external contractors our prices would have to increase as we would have to engage more staff and buy more infrastructure. We require them to be GDPR compliant and enter data processor contracts with us or ensure their contracts make appropriate statements.

We use an outside party to deliver the brochure, materials or products ordered and they may be one of a number and/or may change from time to time. We will communicate who they are at the time they are going to deliver.

We use an external payment processor on the site to process your payment.

Our external email provider processes all our incoming and outgoing emails. Email is how we confirm and manage your order, manage the security of access and passwords on your account and deal with any enquiries and complaints.

We (and third parties under contract with us) use customer contact information to personalise the types of information you receive from us, to determine customer satisfaction with products and/or services we have provided and to improve the operation of our services to you.

The following is a list of the outside parties we use [set out their names and links to their privacy notices here OR say Click the link to see the table of who we use and their privacy notice links]. This may change from time to time so if you continue to use us or keep in contact with us you will be dealing with us on our updated Privacy Notice. We will endeavour to notify you of any changes but this may not be possible. We will set out on our current Privacy Notice the date it came into force.
