Legal grounds for handling personal information:

Data protection laws require that, where we process your personal data, we must satisfy at least one prescribed condition for processing. These are set out in data protection law and we rely on a number of different conditions for the activities we carry out.

  • Necessary for performance of a contract or to comply with law
    • In some cases, the information described above will be provided to us by you because you want to take services from us or engage with us and our use of your information will be governed by contract terms. Giving this information to us is therefore your choice. If you choose not to give all or some of it to us, this may affect our ability to provide the services you want, to you. In particular, we may rely on this condition for processing in the following scenarios:-
      • To process orders, payments and collect arrears.
      • To let you know about significant changes to product, terms or privacy policy.
      • To provide and improve customer support.
      • To send you service communications.
  • Consent
    • Where we collect other information from you such as when you make a purchase. We may also rely on consent in the following scenarios:-
      • Marketing – From time to time, we would like to let you know about products, news and offers.
  • Necessary in our legitimate interests or those of a third party
    • In the United Kingdom, we can also use personal information where the benefits of doing it are not outweighed by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of individuals. The law calls this the “Legitimate Interests” condition for processing. Where we rely on it, the benefits being pursued by us are:-
      • Running a marketing services and data business – like any commercial organisation, we run a business and process information where necessary to do so. We have put in place various safeguards to ensure that individuals’ whose personal information we handle are not unduly harmed by the activities we use their personal data for.
      • Reporting and analytical purposes – to provide management information and information to improve our services.
      • Tracking activity – to help us to improve our services.
      • To maintain our records and other administrative purpose.
      • Complaint and dispute resolution – we will need to use customer data when looking into queries and complaints.

We will ensure that we remain compliant in processing and storing your data.

  • Your data is kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed.  We will review this every 12 months and data from people who have not opened emails from our campaigns over a 12 month period, will be deleted.
  • Your data is collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.
  • The data collected is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.
  • If we store and process your data on the basis of consent, we shall work on the basis that your consent degrades. We will seek to gain your consent again two years after your original opt-in date.
  • If we store and process your data on the basis of legitimate interests we will conduct a legitimate interests assessment.
  • We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

Who has access to your information?

We will not sell, rent or give your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

How do I opt out?

You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us, or whether we retain your personal data.

We will not make contact with you unless based on consent, we believe legitimate interest exists. In this case, we shall formulate a legitimate interest assessment which you may have access to if you wish.

If, after opting in, you no longer want to receive direct marketing communications from us, then you can unsubscribe in one of two ways:

  • Click the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of marketing emails sent to you
  • Email or telephone 01736 333 946

Transferring your information outside of Europe

Polgoon Vineyard Ltd is based in the UK.  As part of the services offered to you, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”).

These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.

If you use our services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with the relevant services.
