Direct marketing and your preferences
We would like to keep you up to date with a range of products and services provided by us. This includes news of special events, promotions, product and company launches and catalogues. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our service and products and may therefore occasionally contact you for research purposes. We may contact you for the above purposes by post, telephone, SMS text messaging and/or email. We will always obtain your consent where we are required to do so in accordance with applicable law.
We will ensure that any direct marketing or market research that you receive or are contacted about by electronic means will provide a simple means for you to refuse further marketing. For example, in emails it may provide you with an 'unsubscribe' link, or an email address to which you can send an opt-out request. We will, within a fair and reasonable period, but not longer than 14 days, cease any marketing to which you object or withdraw your consent to. Please allow sufficient time for the change to be administered. You can change your mind about marketing at any time by informing us using the contact details set out at the top of this notice. In such cases we will not necessarily remove all your personal data from our database(s) but will note and respect your changed direct marketing preferences.
You have the right to request a copy of any information we hold on you at any time, and to have that information corrected if it is inaccurate. If you wish to request a copy of any information held on you, please contact our Customer Care Team at Unit 9 Lower Buckton Barns, Buckton, Leintwardine, Craven Arms, Shropshire, SY7 0JU. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions affects your rights under the Data Protection Act 1998.
