Privacy Notice

At Master Lock and Safe Ltd we take the collection and storage of information you give us extremely seriously. The information you provide to us will only be used to enable us to deliver the goods you order or to contact you with regard to the order.

We will not sell, rent or trade your email address to another company for the purposes of marketing.

 

Your credit/debit card details are processed by Worldpay or Paypal and data such as card numbers, expiry dates and CV2 numbers are never stored on our websites or servers.

 

In some instances orders are despatched direct from the manufacturers, and in these cases the shipping address, email address and telephone number will be passed to the company concerned. These companies will only use your data to enable them to deliver your order and will not use it for marketing purposes or to pass to another company for marketing purposes.

 

We take appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access. Our website uses encryption technology, like Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your personal information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name, address, and telephone number.

 

We do not currently operate a mailing list for promotions or newsletters.

 

You can set up an account on our websites if you wish, which will mean a faster checkout for subsequent orders, but this is not required and you are able to 'Check Out as Guest'. If you set up an account but do not make a purchase, we will delete your account after 24 months. If you set up an account and place an order, we may from time to time check that you are still happy for us to hold your data.

 

 

 

We keep billing and shipping information for 24 months from the date of delivery of your order. This is because of manufacturer's guarantees. After 24 months, your details will be deleted from our systems.

 

 

 

If you are concerned about the information we keep, please contact us at sales@masterlockandsafe.com and we will tell you what information we hold. You will then be able to amend it or ask to have it deleted.
