What data, why it is collected and how is it used?

It would be impossible to be in business without collecting postal and email addresses.  Our operation is purely business to business, but email addresses now mean that you can be identified as an individual with directly or indirectly, even when you are acting in a professional capacity.  This data is therefore categorized as ‘personal data’ under GDPR and falls under the scope of the regulations.


This data is collected for legitimate business purposes.  You are either a customer, a supplier or an employee of the business and your personal data when the law allows us to do so and where we need to comply with legal or regulatory obligations.

From time to time we will send out email correspondence with information about new products, services, calibration, change to our prices and general news. If you no longer wish to hear from us by email, there is always an unsubscribe options on every message allowing you to opt out.


Will my information be shared with any third parties?

As a rule, we do not share your personal data with third parties, however, there are a few expectations.  In some circumstances, your personal information may be disclosed within the normal scope of business, such as passing on company details for a potential sales lead.  This is usually information that is already in the public domain, and you will be notified when this has taken place.


How long my information be kept?

We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including complying with any legal, accounting, or reporting obligations and resolving disputes.


What rights do I have?

You have the right to access the personal information we hold about you (technically known as a data subject access request).  If the information is incorrect you are able to request corrections.  If there are no legitimate or legal reasons for us to continue to hold the information you may request to have it deleted.
