We are required to provide you with this information under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR.) This policy explains how we handle your personal data and what you can do if you have any concerns.
This is the privacy statement of Hazlin of Ludlow Ltd. At Hazlin of Ludlow Ltd (“Hazlin of Ludlow or we”) we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you; that you provide us or that we receive from others about you will be processed by us. It includes data that we hold electronically and in paper files.
How and why we process personal data
We confirm, when processing data on your behalf, that we will comply with the provisions of all relevant data protection legislation and regulation.
We do not sell, rent or lease any of the personal information collected from you to third parties. We do not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations (in the event that we become aware of any), without your explicit consent.
What personal information we collect
The personal information that we collect will vary depending on which product or service we deliver. These may include (the list is non-exhaustive):
- Personal Identifiable Information (Names, email address, postal information, DOB)
- IP addresses
Where we collect personal information from
- Through formal engagement to provide professional services
- Via our website (General enquiries; mailing list sign ups; questionnaires or surveys; submission of a job application)
Legal bases for processing data
The legal bases for the processing of client data where a formal client engagement exists is under the following paragraphs of the GDPR: Article 6 1.(b), the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, and Article 6 1.(f), it is in the legitimate interests of the data controller or a third party.
Our legitimate interest means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service and the best and most secure experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant to you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests. It can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. Safeguards have been put in place to ensure we achieve the correct balance between both our interests.
Where no formal engagement exists, the legal basis for processing personal information is consent provided via our website.
How we use your personal data
The purposes for which personal information is processed may include any or all of the following (the list is non-exhaustive):
- Deliver services and meet legal responsibilities

Who as access and why?
Data will be held and processed for the purpose of providing the service that we are contracted under our Standard Terms of Business: or where you have provided your information via our website.
Only those staff who have a legitimate need to access data will be authorized to do so. We may also be required to share your data with some third parties. For example, if we have a problem with some software it may be necessary to provide the software supplier with specific data. However, where this is necessary we only disclose the information that is required to resolve the issue, and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use for their own purposes. Examples of third parties could include (this list is non-exhaustive):
- Software providers
- Website hosting provider
- Electronic communication providers

To meet our legal data protection and privacy obligations, we only hold on to your information for as long as we need it and for the purposes we acquired it for in the first place.
