How Textile Innovations use your information
This privacy notice tells you how Textile Innovations will collect and use your personal data.
Why does Textile Innovations need to collect and store personal data?
In order for us to provide you with a service, Textile Innovations need to collect personal data to enable us to effectively manage enquiries, supply chains, and process orders on behalf of our clients and suppliers.
In any event, Textile Innovations are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose, and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.
Will Textile Innovations share my personal data with anyone else?
We may collect personal information from you that you have supplied yourself via email, telephone, post or through our website contact form.
We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to Textile Innovations in the course of dealing with you. Any third parties that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to fulfil the service they provide you on our behalf. When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with Textile Innovations’ procedures. If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.
How will Textile Innovations use the personal data it collects about me?
Textile Innovations will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary. Textile Innovations is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.
Under what circumstances will Textile Innovations contact me?
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.
