GDPR

Replacing the UK Data Protection Act 1998, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply in the UK from 25 May 2018. Under this Act Forgeway has a legal duty to protect any information we collect from you.

Our commitment to your privacy

Your trust is extremely important to us at Forgeway – so we want to inform you that we have updated our Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, hold and handle your personal data. Forgeway is wholly committed to the privacy and security of your personal data which we hold; and we will only process and retain the information under the following circumstances, listed below.

We collect your personal data when you:

  • Ask questions or leave us feedback, including your email address if you send an email to us.
  • Interact with us on social media.
  • Register with us to download information or sign-up to our newsletter.
  • Choose to complete any surveys we send you.

This helps us to:

  • Respond to any feedback you send us, if you have asked us to.
  • Provide you with information about our products and services if you want it.

You can send us your feedback directly using the enquiry form on our website. We do not pass on any of your personal information outside our company when dealing with your enquiry. We will not use any information you supply for any other purpose without first obtaining your permission. Any details stored in our tracking system are archived after we have dealt with your enquiry and erased after 24 months.

When asking for your personal information, we will:

  • Make sure you know why we need it.
  • Only ask for what we need.
  • Protect it and ensure no-one else can access it who should not be able to.
  • Make sure we do not store it longer than necessary.
  • Only share it with other companies when the law permits this.
  • Never make your personal information available for third party use without your consent.

How we’ll use your personal data and why:

  • To process any orders that you make – if we don’t collect your personal data during checkout, we’ll be unable to process your order and comply with our legal obligations. For instance, your details may need to be passed to a third party to deliver the product; and we may retain these for a certain period afterwards to fulfil any contractual requirements, such as refunds.
  • To respond to your queries, refund requests and complaints. Managing the information you sent enables us to respond. We may also keep a record of these to notify you of any future communication with us and to demonstrate how we communicated with you. This is based on our contractual obligations to you, our legal obligations and our interests in providing the best service for you.
  • With your permission, we will use your personal data, preferences and details of your transactions to keep you informed by email, web and telephone about relevant products and services.
  • To administer any of our competitions you enter, based on your consent given at the time of entering.
  • To develop, test and improve the systems, services and products we provide to you.
  • To send you survey and feedback requests to help improve our services (these will not contain any promotional content and do not require prior consent when sent by email). We have a legitimate interest to do so as this helps make our products or services more relevant to you.
  • Sometimes, we’ll need to share your details with a third party who is providing a service, such as delivery couriers. We do so to maintain our appointment with you; without sharing your personal data, we’d be unable to fulfil your request.

When we will share your data

We will occasionally share data with third parties to help us provide a better service to you or for the need to complete a contract/order. For example, delivery couriers, to handle complaints, to help us personalise our offers to you and so on.

We won’t share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes, and we don’t pass your details to other websites.

Examples of the type of third parties we work with:

  • IT organisations who support our website and other business functions.
  • Operational companies, such as delivery couriers.
  • Direct marketing companies who assist us in managing our electronic communications with you.
  • Google/Facebook to show you products that may interest you while you’re browsing (this depends on your marketing consent or your acceptance of cookies on our websites).
  • Data insight organisations to ensure your details are accurate and up to date.

How long will we keep your personal data

Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. At the end of that retention period your data will be deleted.

Understand your rights

Forgeway will only hold personal details for the purposes outlined; we will never pass your details onto a third party without your permission. Remember you are entitled to many rights regarding your personal data, including knowing what data we access, and updating your information. You can change your registration information by contacting us.  If you wish to see our records of any correspondence you have sent to us, or if you have a query about this privacy policy, you can contact us at:
