What this privacy notice is for
This privacy notice tells you what to expect when we collect your personal information and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.
What is personal information
Personal information can be anything that identifies and relates to a living person. This can include information that when linked with other information, allows a person to be uniquely identified. For example, this could be your name and contact details.
The law treats some types of personal information as ‘special’ because the information requires more protection due to its sensitivity. This information consists of:
• Racial or ethnic origin
• Sexuality and sexual life
• Religious or philosophical beliefs
• Trade union membership
• Political opinions
• Genetic and bio-metric data
• Physical or mental health
• Criminal convictions and offences
What categories of personal information we use
In order to carry out these purposes we collect and obtain the following personal information.
What we use your information for
We collect information about you for a variety of reasons including:
• Providing quotes
• Entering into a contract to provide services
• Identify you and manage any accounts you hold with us
• Contact you for reasons related to the service you have signed up for or to provide information you have requested
• To promote sales
• Deal with payment for our services
We collect details of the people who have requested quotes so that we can provide an accurate price and/or so that we can take steps to enter into a contract with and provide services once that contract is in place. We will also deal with payments for our services and manage any accounts you hold with us. To deliver services under the guarantee, we will need to retain some personal information of customers for the period of the guarantee and any subsequent period during which there might be any liability. When people do not wish to subscribe to our services, they can cancel their subscription at any time and are given an easy way of doing this. During the processing of orders it may be necessary to pass contact details of customers to third parties to facilitate the delivery of services. Examples of when this would be done are when scaffolding is required or to process queries and complaints. We pass details of all installations to FENSA Ltd who register the work with each Local Authority as appropriate and customer details are also passed to HomePro for the provision of the Insurance Backed Guarantee. The FENSA registration and Insurance Backed Guarantee processes are necessary and required for compliance purposes following the installation of our products.
If you visit our factory, some personal data may be collected from monitoring devices and systems such as closed-circuit TV (CCTV) at the site.
In our vehicles and depot sites we have CCTV systems installed. We may process still or live footage which contains images of individuals and/or premises. CCTV images and data may be processed by us for the purposes of monitoring site and vehicle security and used for crime prevention and / or detection. CCTV data is deleted after ninety (90) days.
Providing your personal data to other parties / disclosure of information
We may disclose personal data to our suppliers who may complete and process delivery services on behalf of ourselves. This data is required to provide the business delivery services that the sub-contractor is completing on behalf of Capital. The legal reason for the processing of this data is the requirement to complete the delivery services and obligation.

We have strict security and confidentiality procedures covering the storage and disclosure of your information in order to keep it safe and to prevent unauthorised access.
