Fireco GDPR Policy
How Fireco obtains your information
Most of the data Fireco obtains is for business to business (B2B) use and will not contain your personal information. This data will often come from business directories or from your past dealings with Fireco.
If we have collected personal information, such as your name or direct email address, this would have been supplied by you previously, or from your business informing us that you are the appropriate contact for fire safety and requesting that we contact you.
Legal Basis for processing information
Fireco sells directly to other businesses (B2B). This means that the data we need to promote our products is business data. We collect information on other businesses who are likely to have a legitimate business interest in fire safety. Business information is “Opt-Out” as standard, which means the information can be used to contact you unless you have chosen to opt-out.
This is different to personal information. Your home address, phone number and personal information are all “Opt-in” as standard. Which means that it cannot be collected or used to contact you unless you have given permission to be contacted
It should also be noted that your individual work email counts as personal information as it can be used to identify an individual and cannot be used without permission.
Contact@fireco.uk = Business information
firstname.lastname@example.org = Personal information
If your phone number or email address have been supplied to us by one of your colleagues, we must confirm that you are happy to continue receiving communications from us in the future.

3rd parties and Cookies
Fireco are not part of a multinational corporation who share your data with offices around the globe. We have an office in Hove and that’s where the vast majority of your data will be processed.
When you have dealings with Fireco or most other companies, your online activities may be recorded on various analytics platforms. You can find out how we use this data on our Cookies page. During this process, your personal details are not used. Fireco, Google, and other analytics partners do not process information that can be used to identify you as an individual. Fireco does not use your browsing history to target adverts at you as you use the internet.
You have the right to opt-out of communications from Fireco at any time. Our emails must always provide you with a way to unsubscribe. If you have received a call and ask not to be contacted again, Fireco must respect these wishes and have processes in place to ensure that your personal information is not used to contact you.
Additionally, businesses can use the Corporate Telephone Preference Service if they do not wish their businesses to be contacted.
Right to be forgotten
If you choose to opt-out of communications, a company can still hold on to personal information they have legally collected about you. The right to be forgotten means that if you request it, companies must delete all the personal information they have about you. Whilst a company may have a legal requirement to keep some records (such as financial transactions) the majority of your data must be deleted and failing to remove the data, or using it again for marketing purposes, would be a breach of GDPR.
If you would like to opt-out or use your right to be forgotten, you can leave us a message here.
