2. The data we collect about you

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together follows:

  • Identity Data includes first name, maiden name, last name, username or similar identifier, marital status, title, date of birth and gender.

  • Usage Data includes information about how you use our website. 

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy. 

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

If you fail to provide personal data

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service but we will notify you if this is the case at the time. 

3. How is your personal data collected?

We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:

  • Direct interactions. You may give us your Identity, Contact and Financial Data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide when you:

  • become a supplier or enter into other business relationships with us;

  • contact us with an enquiry or complaint;

  • interact with us using social media; or

  • give us some feedback.  

  • Automated technologies or interactions. As you interact with our website, we may automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. We collect this personal data by using cookies, and other similar technologies. We may also receive Technical Data about you if you visit other websites employing our cookies.

4. How we use your personal data

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

Change of purpose 

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.


If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance 

with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.


5. Disclosures of your personal data

We may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the 

table in paragraph 4 above.


  • Internal Third Parties as set out in the Glossary (below). 

  • External Third Parties as set out in the Glossary (below).

  • Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy policy. 


We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own 

purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance 

with our instructions.


6. International transfers

We may share your personal data within the Froneri Group. This will involve transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).


Many of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their 

processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA. 


Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is 

afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented: 

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an ‘adequate’ level of protection for personal data by the European Commission. For further details, see European Commission: Adequacy of the protection of personal data in non-EU countries.

  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe. For further details, see European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries. 

  • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.


7. Data security


We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being 

accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit 

access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a 

business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. 


We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


8. Data retention

How long will you retain my personal data? 

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to satisfy the purposes for which we collected it, plus any additional time needed to satisfy legal, accounting, and reporting requirements. 

By law we must keep basic information about our business relationships including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data for seven years after the tax year in which the transaction took place of the applicable contract ended.


In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see ‘Your Legal Rights’ below for further information. 


In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. 


9. Your legal rights

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These rights are explained at the end of this notice. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out at the end of this notice, please contact us.


No fee usually required


You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). 

However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. 

Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.


What we may need from you


We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your 

right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to 

ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also 

contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.


Time limit to respond


We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a 

month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we 

will notify you and keep you updated. 


10. Glossary




Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do 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). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.


Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a 

contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.


Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary 

for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.




Internal Third Parties


Other companies in the Froneri Group acting as controllers or processors and who are based in the United Kingdom, EU and outside the EU and provide IT and system administration services, centralised Group services (such as customer support or marketing), any products or services you have requested and undertake leadership reporting.


External Third Parties

  • Service providers acting as processors based in the UK, EU and outside the EU (typically in the US) who provide IT and system administration services or other services for and on our behalf (such as satisfaction survey monitoring or quality assurance services);

  • Customers of ours (and their audit providers) acting as processors or joint controllers based in the United Kingdom, EU or outside the EU who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances (for example relating to suppliers we engage);

  • Professional advisers acting as processors or joint controllers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers based in the UK, EU and outside the EU who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance, auditing, quality assessment and accounting services;

  • HM Revenue & Customs, regulators and other authorities acting as processors or joint controllers based in the United Kingdom who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances;

  • Third parties acting as processors or joint controllers based in the United Kingdom, EU and outside the EU used to facilitate payment transactions, for example clearing houses, clearing systems, financial institutions and transaction beneficiaries;

  • Credit reference and fraud prevention agencies, crime prevention and law enforcement agencies and regulators acting as processors or joint controllers based in the United Kingdom who require reporting to prevent fraud or other criminal offences in certain circumstances;

  • Any third party in the context of actual or threatened legal proceedings, provided we can do so lawfully (for example in response to a court order);

  • Another organisation if we sell or buy (or negotiate to sell or buy) any business or assets;

  • Another organisation to whom we may transfer our agreement with you; and

  • Government departments where reporting is mandatory under applicable law.




You have the right to:


Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.


Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.


Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data 

where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete 

or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing 

(see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to 

erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to 

comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, 

at the time of your request. 


Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a 

third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to 

processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have 

the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some 

cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information 

which override your rights and freedoms.


Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the 

processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's 

accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it. 


Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third 

party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. 

Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to 

use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you. 


Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
