HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?
Here at Kettle Co we take your privacy seriously and collect your basic personal data including name, address, telephone number and email address to provide the products and services you have requested and to administer your account.
When you purchase or contact us either in person or via our website we may collect, hold, and process your personal information (for the purposes stated below).
We will not share this information with third parties or any other party that is not relevant to the services provided by KC. Exemptions to this policy under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 may apply.
However, we need to pass your details onto other companies that will supply parts of you order, such as worktop providers, sink and tap manufacturers, subcontractors, etc. This is to ensure they can contact you with regards to your purchase (deliveries, warranties, etc.). In order to proceed with your order, we will need to obtain your signed consent.
The third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways/payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies, so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
