Privacy Policy

Please find below our privacy policy:

At Jennings Exports Ltd t/a PPE HQ, we are committed to safeguarding the personal data of all of our customers and website visitors. As a data controller, we are dedicated to ensuring that the processing of personal data of a data subject, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number, and we shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the United Kingdom (UK) data protection regulations. By means of this data protection declaration, The Yorkshire Renovation Company would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this privacy policy, of the rights to which they are entitled.

In this policy, when we talk about Jennings Exports Ltd t/a PPE HQ and each of their respective subsidiaries (collectively “PPE HQ”, “we”, “our” or “us”) we are referring to the company which provides the goods and services.

As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

Our privacy policy is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration aims to be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.

In this privacy policy, we use, among other things, the following terms:

(a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

(b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data are processed by the data controller responsible for the processing.

(c) Processing
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

(d) Profiling
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

(e) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(f) Data controller
The data controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or UK law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or UK law.

(g) Data processor
The data processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

(h) Recipient
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or UK law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

(i) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, data controller, data processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the data controller or data processor, are authorised to process personal data.

k) Consent
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a cookie ID, which is the unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognised and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of our websites with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognise our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilise our websites. The website user that uses cookies may not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website and the cookie is stored on the user’s computer system.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in most Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

Our websites collect a series of general data and information, when a data subject or an automated system calls up the website.

This general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. Collected data may include:

(a) the browser types and versions used
(b) the operating system used by the accessing system
(c) any language preferences you may have
(d) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers)
(e) the sub-websites, which are controlled by an accessing system on our website
(f) the date and time of access to the Internet site
(g) an Internet protocol address (IP address)
(h) the Internet service provider of the accessing system
(i) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to:

(a) deliver the content of our website correctly
(b) optimise the content of our website as well as its advertisement
(c) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website
(d) provide the law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack

Therefore, we analyses these anonymously collected data and information, on one hand, statistically and besides with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise and, ultimately, to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the data controller with the provisions of personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to the data controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration.

By registering data on the website of the data controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject, date and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place in the background as this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offences. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the data controller. This data is not passed on to third parties, unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data or the transfer serves the aim of the criminal prosecution.

The controller shall at any time provide information on the request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall rectify or erase personal data on the request or at indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. A data protection officer particularly designated in this data protection declaration and the entirety of the employees of the controller are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

We may collect and receive the following information:

(a) Quotations and invoices: Data subjects may provide information such as an email address, phone number, address, job title and company name.

(b) Customer relationship management: This information may include administrative and support communications with us and information about projects, orders, support, features, content, and links you interact with, and what third party integrations you use (if any).

(c) Contact information: With your permission, any contact information you choose to share with us is collected (such as an email, telephone number or physical address) when using our services.

(d) Third party data: We may also receive information from affiliates in our corporate group, our partners, or others that we use to make our own information better or more useful. This might be aggregate level information, such as which IP addresses go with which postcodes, or it might be more specific information, such as about how well an online marketing or email campaign performed, which also includes information on how you interacted with the email and any links you clicked on.

The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for our own purposes. We, the data controller may request the transfer of personal data to one or more processors, for example, a parcel service, who also uses the personal data for an internal use, which is attributable to the data controller.

(a) To understand and improve our services: We carry out research and analyse trends to better understand how customers are using our websites to help improve them.

In addition, we sometimes send promotional emails about new product features or other news about The Yorkshire Renovation Company. You can opt out of these at any time.

(d) Communicating with you and marketing: We often need to contact you for invoicing, account management and other similar reasons. We may also use your contact information for our own marketing or advertising purposes. You can opt out of these at any time.

(e) Billing and account management: We use account data to administer accounts and keep track of orders, billing and payments. This data may include your contact details, your payment details and the transaction details. The data may be processed for the purpose of supplying the purchased goods or served and keeping proper records of those transactions. The legal basis for this processing is, at your request, the performance of a contract between you and us.

(f) Publication data: We may use information that you submit to us for publication on our website or in our magazines, for example generating a PR article when your project is completed. We will always get your full consent before any information is publicised, and you can opt out of these at any time.

(g) Investigating and preventing bad stuff from happening: We work hard to keep all of our services secure and to prevent abuse and fraud.

We may disclose your personal data to any member of our group of companies, which includes all of our subsidiaries, insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes and legal bases set out in this policy.

We may disclose your personal data to our insurers or professional advisors for the purposes of maintaining insurance, managing risks, obtaining professional advice, and exercise of defence of legal claims, whether it be court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure.

If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may at any time contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller.

In addition, we may disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your personal interests, or the vital interests of another natural person.
