Major Oak Polishing – Privacy Statement

At Major Oak Polishing, we are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our customers. The information we collect is only ever used for our own purposes. We will never pass any details to a third party unless it is strictly necessary (e.g. To a payment processor). This notice details the information we collect, how we use it and how it is kept secure.

Our Lawful Basis for Processing Personal Information

Legitimate Interests

Under the new (GDPR) data protection law starting in May 2018, we have a number of lawful reasons that we can use (or ‘process’) your personal information. One of these lawful reasons is called ‘legitimate interests’.

Broadly speaking Legitimate Interests means that we can process your personal information if we have a genuine and legitimate reason and we are not harming any of your rights and interests.

So, what does this mean? When you provide your personal details to us we use your information for our legitimate business interests to carry out our work of servicing customers throughout our territory. Before doing this we will also carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights.

Some typical examples of when we might use the approach are for preventing fraud, direct marketing, maintaining the security of our systems, data analytics, enhancing, modifying or improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our campaigns and sales.

We will process the personal information you have supplied to us to conduct and manage our business to enable us to give you the most appropriate marketing, information, service and products and provide the best and most secure experience. These are what we consider to be our ‘Legitimate Interests’.

Your interests

When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
