Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data.

Your personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:
a) Supplying our products or services to you. Your personal details are required in order for us to enter into a contract with you.

and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.
We use the following automated systems for carrying out certain kinds of decision-making and profiling. If at any point you wish to query any action that we take on the basis of this or wish to request ‘human intervention’ (i.e. have someone review the action themselves, rather than relying only on the automated method), the GDPR gives you the right to do so. Please contact us to find out more using
the details in Part 11.
The following automated decision-making method(s) may be used:
We use a Barclaycard terminal to accept card payments in person or over the telephone If in person, a PIN number is entered. If payment taken over the telephone we are required to provide the card number, expiry date, Security Code (on the signature strip of the card), numbers from post code and house number. Barclaycard will issue us with a decision whether the payment
has been accepted or declined. We remain compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 3.2 and is reviewed on an annual basis.
The following automated profiling may take place:
We use Experian to assist us in making a decision when a customer applies for a credit account. This is an information only website and does not make any decisions for the company.
We have a credit insurance to insure our credit account customer balances. Information will be sent to the current insurer as a matter of course to make any decisions for the company and to control our offer of credit limits.

determine how long it is kept):
