How we store and secure information we collect

Information storage and security
We store all your personal data within a secure Amazon EC2 Database. This information is managed by LED Flex Ltd via an online bespoke application run and managed only by LED Flex Ltd employees. This system is served over a secure SSL connection and supports additional security such as capture logins, IP logging, and monitoring tools notifying us of a breach. While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others.

How long we keep information
How long we keep information we collect about you depends on how long business is active between LED Flex Ltd and you. As soon as business seizes between LED Flex Ltd and you, your data will be removed from all online systems within a 175 day period. Your information is also removed from all third party services LED Flex Ltd uses. We assume you will always be an active customer of ours unless either notified by you or your product warranty expires.

Marketing information:
If you have elected to receive marketing emails from us, we also store your First Name and Email Address with our third party email provider, Mail Chimp.

How to access and control your information

You have the right to access, and remove your personal data from within the systems we use, and to be given your personal information in a clear readable format. You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the deletion of your information, or to request your information in a structured, electronic format. Once a request is made, we save the request information of a First and Last Name, Email Address, Date and IP address of the request, which is automatically deleted after 175 days.

Your request and choices may be limited in certain cases: for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or if you ask to delete information which we or your administrator are permitted by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. If you have unresolved concerns, you may have the right to complain to a data protection authority in the country where you live, where you work or where you feel your rights were infringed.

Access and update your information:
You have the right to request your personal information by either emailing gdpr@led-flex.co.uk or by writing in to the address printed at the bottom of this policy or by using our online request tool. All information requests are subject to verification and are logged by time and date and method of request. You will then be emailed a unique one time link giving you access to your data. You will be supplied your personal data in a clear format with a selection of check boxes giving us permission for such things like third party services and marketing purposes.

Delete your information:
You have the right to be forgotten and have all personal information removed from LED Flex Ltd systems and any third party system LED Flex Ltd uses to help manage the daily workflow. Upon a delete request, all your personal information will be moved to a contained database table where an automatic delete process will be actioned within 20 days of the request. Please note, however, that we may need to retain certain information to complete orders and transactions or to comply with our legal obligations.

Opt out of communications:
You may opt out of receiving promotional and marketing communications from us by using the unsubscribe link within each email, or updating your email preferences within your personal information once requested using our online request tool, or by contacting us at gdpr@led-flex.co.uk.

Send "Do Not Track" Signals:
Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our Services do not currently respond to browser DNT signals. You can use the range of other tools we provide to control data collection and use, including the ability to opt out of receiving marketing from us as described above.

For example, this could occur if our servers are located in a country outside the EEA or one of our service providers is situated in a country outside the EEA. These countries may not have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the EEA.

If we transfer Data outside the EEA in this way, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this privacy policy. You expressly agree to such transfers of Data.
