Protecting your privacy and the personal data you provide us is of the utmost importance for us at ConstructionEquipment.co.uk.
ConstructionEquipment.co.uk have taken a great deal of care to ensure that any personal information you divulge and send to us remains totally confidential, which is why we do not sell or rent the personal information we collect from you to third parties for their marketing purposes. On occasion, it may be necessary to share limited information about you with a third party to fulfil an order requirement (i.e in instances where goods ordered are shipped directly to the purchaser from another source/supplier due to non-availability). In such circumstances the information we disclose is limited to that required to effect delivery of goods only and does not include confidential payment related details about the purchaser.
We only collect personal information from users that we deem to be absolutely necessary to enable us to complete purchase transactions and carry out obligations to you as a supplier as efficiently as possible; this will typically include your email address, contact telephone number, home address and post code, and where applicable, the contact name, telephone number, delivery address and corresponding post code for goods that are not despatched directly to the registered purchasers address.
As part of the purpose process, we will also need to collect from you details of the card used for payment (where applicable); this will typically include the type of card used, card number, expiry date, security details etc.
We do not store or retain the debit/credit card details we receive from you. All payments received, whether directly through our company website, placed over the phone or in person at our registered trading address are processed via a secured encrypted payment gateway using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Great care is taken to ensure protection of personal information and payment details at all times against loss and unauthorised access.
