This Privacy Notice outlines how we collect and use the information that we collect from you through your use of this website (at www.easy-trim.co.uk– the “Site”), including as one of our customers.
The purpose of this Privacy Notice is to make you aware of how and why your personal information will be collected and used by us, predominantly for the purposes of the performance of our contract with you as our customer, and for how long it will usually be retained. It provides you with certain information that must be provided under the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA).
This Privacy Notice sets out how we use information relating to our customers, prospects, visitors to and users of the Site and people who interact with or do business with us (such as our suppliers) (“you”, “your”). In these cases, we will be the “data controller” for the purposes of GDPR.
It is important that you read this Privacy Notice, together with any other privacy notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information.
Data Protection Principles
There are six overarching principles of the GDPR with which we will ensure compliance when processing your personal data:
What data is collected?
We collect information from you when you contact us, engage us for services, contract with us or use the Site. We will collect, store, and use the following types of personal information about you:
We do not normally collect “special categories” of sensitive personal data from our customers, suppliers or users of the Site. In the event you provide us with any special category data, we will take extra care to ensure that your rights are protected.
Where we allow you to post comments on any part of the Site, personal data such as your name and contact details may be collected.
A “cookie” is a piece of information that is stored on your computer, tablet or phone to recognise your browser and which records how you have used a website. This means that when you go back to that website, it can give you tailored options based on the information it has stored about your last visit. You can normally alter the settings of your browser to prevent it from accepting cookies.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Site. Without these cookies, certain services and functionality on the Site, such as remembering items in your basket, cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
These cookies allow our Site to remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the products you buy. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remember where you have been on the internet.
Third Party Cookies
The specific third party cookies we use include the following:
youtube.com (embedded content (video))
maps.google.co.uk (embedded content (map))
sharethis.com (social media button)
Our email marketing may be trackable at an individual level, allowing us to determine, for example, opens and link clicks. This information is generally used to help assess the effectiveness of communications so that, for example, we can send you more of what you like and less of what you do not like.
How to reject cookies
If you do not wish to receive cookies that are not strictly necessary to perform basic features of our Site you can set your browser to reject cookies or to tell you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer.
Note that most web browsers will accept cookies, but if you would rather that we did not collect data in this way you can choose to accept all or some or reject cookies in your browser’s privacy settings. Rejecting all cookies means that certain features on the Site cannot then be provided to you and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Site’s features. The “Help” menu in the bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-ons settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

We may share your personal data with the following trusted third-parties:
[Sharing your data with these trusted third-parties may involve transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Many of our external third parties are based outside the EEA and so their processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
