By means of this information notice (“Notice”), the Data Controller, as defined below, wish to inform You on the purposes and methods of the processing of Your personal data and on the rights that Regulation (UE) 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”) entrust You.
1. Who is the Data Controller
The Data Controller is Quadrant Mowers (“Quadrant Mowers” or the “Data Controller”), with registered office in Horsell, Woking, Surrey, GU21.
2. Which personal data we process
2.1 Specific requests
Pursuant to a specific request by You, and for the purposes set forth in article 3 of this Notice, the Data Controller processes the following personal data:
• common data and contact details, such as the name, surname, address, phone number, e-mail address, your IP address, your IP referrer and details of which version of web browser you used and other addresses.
- information on how you use the site, using cookies and page tagging techniques
2.2 Browsing data
The IT systems and programs used for the functioning of the Website collect some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the usage of the Internet communication protocols (e.g. IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the Website, URI addresses - Uniform Resource Identifier – of the requested resources, time of the request, method used in submitting the request to the server, file size obtained in response, numerical code about the status of the response made by the server – favorable outcome, error, etc. - and other parameters related to the operating system and the user's IT environment). Although the information that is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects, by their nature they could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow identification of data subjects.
These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the Website and to check its correct functioning and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical IT crimes to the detriment of the Website: except for this eventuality, at present the data on web contacts do not persist for more than seven days.
In some cases, personal data is collected by Quadrant Mowers with the use of different technologies, including that of "cookies". Cookies are made up of a series of data that a website sends to a "browser" (which could be Your browser). This information can then be stored on a computer (even Your computer) through a tag that identifies the computer but not the user.
3. Purposes of processing and legal basis
3.1 Management of Your request
The processing is necessary for permitting the browsing on the Website, improving the site by monitoring how You use it and to reply to Your specific requests, included, but not limited to, sending You technical information and prices on Quadrant Mowers products, gathering feedback to improve our services, responding to any feedback or questions You send us, if you've asked us to and arranging an appointment with Quadrant Mowers etc.
The legal basis for the processing is therefore the execution of Your request, pursuant to Article 6, first paragraph, letter b), of the GDPR; therefore, Your consent is not necessary to allow the processing.
In case You provide us with Your specific consent, we may process Your personal data also for providing You with commercial information on products and services marketed by Quadrant Mowers; as well as asking You to participate in statistical analysis, polls and market surveys with regard to products and services marketed by Quadrant Mowers.
The legal basis for the processing activity is Your consent, pursuant to Article 6, first paragraph, letter a), of the GDPR.
Even if You grant us Your consent, You may request us to cease the processing for marketing purposes at any time, by sending an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking on the link contained in each e-mail You will receive.
4. Nature of the personal data processing and consequences of a refusal
The processing of Your personal data is a mandatory requirement for the management of Your request, and therefore Your refusal to provide the personal data will result in the impossibility for the Data Controller to execute the sale and purchase agreement.
Sending information over the internet is generally not completely secure, and we can’t guarantee the security of your data while it’s in transit.
Any data you send is at your own risk.
We have procedures and security features in place to keep your data secure once we receive it.
We won’t share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes, and we don’t pass on your details to other websites.
If You refuse to grant us Your consent to process Your personal data also for marketing activities, we will not be able to provide You with special offers and/or information on new products and services; however, this will not impair the management of any different request from Your side.
5. Data Retention
The Data Controller will process your personal data, for the purposes indicated above, only for the time necessary for the management of Your request, as well as for the fulfillment of any legal obligation provided by any applicable European and/or Member State’s laws and/or regulations.
Your personal data will be subsequently retained by the Data Controller for a period equal to 1 year / equal to the applicable statute of limitation and then deleted.
As for the marketing activities, your data will be processed until 1 year from our receipt of Your consent, notwithstanding that you will be able to immediately interrupt the processing as specified in preceding article 3.
