To supplement the Privacy statement and to make it clear to all consumers / private individuals please note the following –
The Data Protection Act 1998 requires businesses to give details about the way they process personal information to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) for inclusion in a public register, unless they are exempt. This is called notification.
The core business exempts from notification organisations that only process personal information, subject to certain conditions, for the following purposes:
Given the circumstance in which we hold data we qualify as exempt however we must still comply with other provisions in the Data Protection Act 1998.
In terms of the Data Protection Act 1998, DPA, the Data Controller is Sekers Fabrics Ltd, Wemyss Houles Ltd and Wemyss Weavecraft Ltd.
When you request information, sign up to any of our services the Data Controller obtains information about you. This statement explains how we look after that information and what we do with it.
We have a legal duty under the Data Protection Act 1998 to prevent information falling into wrong hands. We must also ensure that the data we hold is accurate, adequate, relevant and not excessive.
Normally the only information we hold comes directly from you. Whenever we collect information from you, we will make it clear which information is required in order to provide you with the information, service or goods you need. You do not need to provide us with any additional information unless you choose to. We store your information securely on our computer system, we restrict access to those who have a need to know and we train our staff in handling the information securely.
We are obligated to state that you can also contact us directly at any time to tell us not to send you any future marketing material, however other than sending your requested cutting we have no intention of sending such items. We also endeavour to destroy your held data within reasonable time once we have sent your requested cutting.
You have the right to a copy of all the information we hold about you (apart from a very few things which may be obliged to withhold because they concern other people as well as you). To obtain a copy write to the Data Protection Officer at our registered address. There may be a charge of £10 for a copy of your data (as permitted by law). We aim to reply as promptly as we can and, in any case, within the legal maximum of 40 days.
All data users must comply with the eight Data Protection Principles. The Principles define how data can be legally processed. ‘Processing’ includes obtaining, recording, holding or storing information and carrying out any operations on the data, including adaptation, alteration, use, disclosure, transfer, erasure, and destruction.
NB: This Privacy Statement is designed specifically for Consumers / Private Individuals only and not to businesses. Although businesses that the Data Controller contracts with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998 still applies.
