Privacy and Security

 

 

Your privacy is very important to us and we are committed to using your personal information lawfully and protecting your privacy.

This policy explains how and why Geoplan processes your personal information that we collect and receive from and about users of our website (www.geoplan.com) and customers who utilise our services or subscribe to our newsletters.

 

How and what basis do we collect, hold, use and/ or process your personal information?

Where we are legally allowed to use your personal information, we will ensure that it is:

  • processed lawfully, fairly and transparently 
  • collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes 
  • adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purpose of the processing 
  • kept accurate and up to date 
  • only kept for so long as is necessary processed securely using appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure integrity and confidentiality
  • Legal use will be in the context of fulfilling our obligations to you in delivering requested products and services, where consent is given.

 

What information do we collect?

We will only collect name and address details you supply via the site.  In some areas, this may simply mean registering your name, address and email details. Credit or debit card details entered to complete online purchase transactions are processed by our third party payment provider.

We may also process other personal information about you when needed to provide our products, services or other information that you request. We will make you aware of what personal information we are processing at the time of when we obtain it.

We do not process any sensitive personal information about you. You should not provide us with any sensitive personal information. Any sensitive personal information provided to us will be deleted.

 

What do we use this information for?

We use this information to service your orders and ongoing account administration. These details will be held in our databases within our secure network. With your permission, we may contact you from time to time, as a Geoplan customer, with information relating to product updates and services, offers and new developments.  We will never pass on your details to any third party unless specifically required as part of a data or software license, bound and protected by contract.
