You may browse some areas of this Website without giving us any personal information (other than your Internet protocol (IP) address).  In this case, we may gather certain information such as records of your activity on the Website by reference only to that address.

If you do choose to provide us with your personal information, we will collect that information for our own use and for the purposes described in this Website Privacy Policy.

Other than as set out above, we will not transfer, disclose, sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission to do so or are otherwise required or permitted to do so by law.

Where is your data?

The personal information you provide through the Website is processed in the United Kingdom. Some of the companies or other third parties to whom your personal information will be disclosed are located outside the European Economic Area, in countries which do not provide the same level of protection to personal information. Whether the personal information you provide to us is processed by us or our vendors within the EEA or outside of it, we will take steps to ensure that your personal information will be afforded the level of protection required of us under applicable data protection legislation and this policy.

By using our Website and submitting your personal information to us, you consent to the use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Security and storage

Once any personal information comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure as appropriate to the nature of the information and the harm that might result from a breach of security.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the security of any transmission of personal information over the Internet. Communications over the internet such as e-mails are not secure unless they have been encrypted. So while we strive to protect such information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us. You therefore accept the inherent security implications of dealing online and will not hold us responsible for any breach of security unless such breach has been caused by the specific negligence of the Company, its affiliates or its agents.

We may retain your personal data for an appropriate period of time in accordance with our data retention policies. Where you ask us to cease sending marketing communication(s) to you, we will maintain your details on a suppression list for this purpose.

Keeping you informed

We will keep your details on record until we have completed dealing 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 above purposes. During which time, we may contact you to let you know if the Company has any further information relating to your initial enquiry or application. At the end of that period we will securely delete your details and will not contact you again unless or until you request us to do so.

Access to information

You may contact us at any time if you wish to check the accuracy of any information that we hold about you, or to request that we update, correct or delete the information by contacting uk@jdrcables.com.

Please note that our ability to amend or delete your details may be subject to legal limitations e.g. we may not be able to delete your files until we have completed a transaction with you and may only be able to delete limited details since we may need to have an ongoing relationship with you in relation to eg employment.

What are your rights?

Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have certain rights in relation to the information we hold about you. You can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act 1998 and obtain a copy of those details about you which you would like to have. In addition, you have other rights in relation to your data such as the right to request correction of your personal information.

Should you wish to make a request, please submit it in writing to the address below and enclosing a cheque for £10 payable to JDR Cable Systems Ltd. Details will be provided to you within 40 days of us receiving your clear, written request and fee.
