The Company may also use your personal data (normally on an aggregated statistical basis) for research and analysis to improve Company and its Sites performance. In addition, the Company may use pixels or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising.

No.

However we may disclose specific information upon lawful request by government authorities, law enforcement and regulatory authorities where required or permitted by law and for tax or other purposes. Your personal information may also be made available to third parties or partners where necessary as part of any restructuring of the Company or sale of the Company’s business or assets.

We will not sell your personal information to any third party other than as part of any restructuring of the Company or Group or sale of a relevant Group business if such a process ever occurred.

 

What choices does the Company offer you with regard to direct marketing?

The Company may wish to provide you with information about new products, services, promotions and offers, which may be of interest to you and may invite you to take part in market research or request feedback on our products and services and the Company’s products and services. This communication may occur by e-mail, telephone, post or SMS. We will obtain your direct consent and advise you of how to opt-out of receiving such communications where we are required to do so in accordance with applicable law, for example by clicking the “unsubscribe” link on any email that we send to you.

What safeguards are in place to protect your personal information?

Our new website is protected by SSL certificate on firewalled servers.
However, while we take efforts to safeguard your personal information which are consistent with relevant laws, the nature of the internet is such that we cannot guarantee absolutely the security of any personal information you disclose online.

What rights do you have to review and amend personal information?

You have the right to review your personal information held by the Company (including any profiling information) and have certain inaccurate information about you corrected. Under UK law, a request for access to your personal data needs to be in writing and accompanied by the statutory fee (£10).

If you wish to do so, or to contact the Company in respect of its data processing activities, please contact the Company Directors, Lesco Products Ltd, Wincheap Estate, Canterbury, CT1 3RH, U.K.

Keeping you informed

We will keep your details on record until we have completely dealt with your request, enquiry or application and then for a reasonable period afterwards, in accordance with data protection and other applicable legislation.

The Company may keep your details on record for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out above and will then endeavour to delete your details in accordance with data protection and other applicable legislation.
