However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we request that they keep all information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes (unless requested by yourself).
Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties outside of Clearwell Mobility for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
How is your information stored?
Orders and requests placed via www.clearwellmobility.co.uk are stored on a secure, firewall protected and remote server. Orders and transactions placed in store, via phone or mail are stored on our secure, password and firewall protected server which is inaccessible outside of the Clearwell Mobility network.
Personal Contact Information
Contact information such as name, telephone numbers and addresses are stored on our secure, password and firewall protected server which is inaccessible outside of Clearwell Mobility.
Debit & credit card information is not stored by ourselves and is processed using a third-party payment processor, who is specialised in the secure capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions.
Once an order has been transacted using our secure online Adyen processor or in store using our card terminals, we do not have access to the card details.
All VAT Declaration forms are stored in a locked and secure facility with limited access in line with HMRC requirements.
How long do we store your information?
As standard, we retain Order Information indefinitely as it aids us with after-sales support and future orders placed by yourself. Due to the nature of our sales, we are legally required to retain orders where VAT Relief has been claimed for up to 7 years. This is in line with any potential VAT Audits carried out by HMRC.
We also retain Order Information for warranty reasons related to your products. This information will be used should you ever need to claim on your product during the warranty period.
Personal Information & Purchase History
As standard, we retain customer information and purchased history indefinitely or for a minimum of 7 years if the customer has placed an order and claimed VAT Relief.
Delivery information is retained by our chosen courier company and is done so for a period of time at their discretion. Information on their Privacy policies and storage solutions are available upon request.
We do not retain card information after a sale has been transacted. The information is stored by our third-party processors and information on their Privacy policies and storage solutions are available upon request.
We do not currently participate in direct marketing to customers and will not contact you with any direct marketing materials without prior consent (exception of After Sales Support information as listed above).
Should we update our marketing practices to include direct marketing (electronic, paper or phone), you will be required to ‘opt-in’ to receive such materials. You will then have the ability to ‘opt-out’ at any time thereafter by contacting us on 01444 253 300 or via email using our contact form.
Security Precautions to Protect Data
Our site uses 256 bit SSL encryption technology, the most advanced security software currently available for online transactions. You can therefore rest assured that all the information that you enter on our website cannot be seen or captured by anyone else. You can tell whether a page is using encryption by looking for a small locked padlock next to the website address int eh top bar of your browser. The address bar will also change to start with ‘https’ rather than ‘http’ before www.clearwellmobility.co.uk.
In Store, Phone & Mail Orders
All records are stored on our secure server which is inaccessible outside of the Clearwell Network. This server is password protected and secured by a number of firewalls and additional security features.
Clearwell are not responsible for any security breaches or loss of data taking place when the customer places an order with Clearwell via a Mail Order, prior to the arrival of said order at the Clearwell Mobility address. Should an issue arise during this transit, this would be related to the courier chosen by the customer to transfer said data.
Links to Other Websites
If you believe any information we may have is incorrect or requires updating then please contact us and we will update our records as soon as physically possible but within 1 month.
If you no longer wish us to store your information and invoke your ‘Right to be Forgotten’ then please contact us on 01444 253 300 or via our contact form.
We are able to remove customer information and sales history from our database. We are however, required to store customer information and sales history for up to 7 years if the customer has purchased an item and claimed VAT Relief. This is a legal requirement by HMRC in line with any potential VAT Audits which may occur. Once this duration has passed we are able to remove all records and files.
Please be aware that should you request us to remove your information from our systems, this may void any warranties. We would ask that you retain all paperwork and sales invoices related to items purchased to aid us with any warranty claims arising after deletion.
