For some of the services which we offer, we may require information from you. We may collect your personal information from a variety of sources, including information we collect from you directly e.g. when you contact us and provide services to us and information we collect about you from other sources, including commercially available sources, such as public databases (where permitted by law).
Certain personal information is required as a consequence of any contractual relationship we have with you to enable us to carry out our contractual obligations.
Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation Personal Data is defined as follows:
Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
The categories of information that we may collect on you includes the following:
The examples provided are not all inclusive and Tomkins also may collect similar or related information.
Tomkins will process – that means collect, store and use – the information you provide in a manner that is compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date and not keep it for longer than is necessary. In some instances, the law sets the length of time information has to be kept, but in most cases, Tomkins will use its discretion to ensure that we do not keep records outside of our normal business requirements.
Unless it is necessary for a reason allowable in the GDPR, Tomkins will always obtain explicit consent from a data subject to collect and process their data. Transparent information about our usage of their personal data will be provided to data subjects at the time that consent is obtained and their rights with regard to their data explained, such as the right to withdraw consent.
2. Performance of a Contract
Where the personal data collected and processed are required to fulfil a contract with the data subject, explicit consent is not required. This will often be the case where the contract cannot be completed without the personal data in question e.g. a delivery cannot be made without an address to deliver to.
3. Legal Obligation
If the personal data is required to be collected and processed in order to comply with the law, then explicit consent is not required. This may be the case for some data related to employment and revenue.
4. Vital Interests of the Data Subject
In a case where the personal data are required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, then this may be used as the lawful basis of the processing. Tomkins will retain reasonable, documented evidence that this is the case, whenever this reason is used as the lawful basis of the processing of personal data.
5. Task Carried Out in the Public Interest
Where Tomkins needs to perform a task that it believes is in the public interest or as part of an official duty then the data subject’s consent will not be requested. The assessment of the public interest or official duty will be documented and made available as evidence where required.
6. Legitimate Interests
If the processing of specific personal data is in the legitimate interests of Tomkins and is judged not to affect the rights and freedoms of the data subject in a significant way, then this may be defined as the lawful reason for the processing.
