CS Group has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website: www.csgroup.co.uk.
CS Group do not disclose visitors information to third parties.
Any information that you provide us with, whether it be business or personal information (such as your name or address), cannot be seen by third parties.
The information we do keep is stored on our own computer systems, not on a web site.
This site may at times contain links to other sites. CS Group is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.
This policy, together with our Terms and Conditions, explains how we might use information we collect about site visitors as well as site visitor rights. By accessing our site, you confirm that you have understood both our Terms and Conditions and this policy and that you have agreed to them.
We collect information about you when you:
Collecting your personal information helps us to better understand what you need from us. We use your information to:
Your personal information is safe with us and will never be released to third parties for their marketing purposes.
If you agree, we may contact you:
Whether or not you choose to receive these updates is entirely your choice. If you do not check the appropriate box, we will not send you updates and offers.
Under the new data protection law starting in May 2018 we have a number of lawful reasons that we can use (or ‘process’) your personal information. For B2B accounts one of the lawful reasons is called ‘legitimate interests’.
Broadly speaking Legitimate Interests means that we can process your personal information if we have a genuine and legitimate reason and we are not harming any of your rights and interests.
So, what does this mean? When you provide your personal details to us we use your information for our legitimate business interests to carry out our work of servicing businesses throughout our territory. Before doing this, though, we will also carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights.
Some typical examples of when we might use the approach are for preventing fraud, direct marketing, maintaining the security of our systems, data analytics, enhancing, modifying or improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our campaigns and sales.
We will process the personal information you have supplied to us to conduct and manage our business to enable us to give you the most appropriate marketing, information, service and products and provide the best and most secure experience. These are what we consider to be our ‘Legitimate Interests’.
The following are some examples of when and why we would use this approach in our work:
We will also hold information about you so that we can respect your preferences for being contacted by us.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will 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).
Remember, you can change the way you hear from us or withdraw your permission for us to process your personal details at any time by using our contact form on the ‘Contact Us’ page or by using our online Preference Centre.
