Data storage

Sending data via the internet is never entirely secure, and although we will do our best to protect your personal data once we have received it, we cannot guarantee the security of your data whilst in transmission. Once we receive your information, we use procedures and systems designed to try to prevent unauthorised access wherever possible. All information you provide to us via the website is stored on our secure servers; all data we process within our office is protected with a secure network.

Disclosure of your information

We will not disclose your information to any third parties unless strictly necessary. For the purposes of providing your quotes and orders, and to meet our legal obligations, we may from time to time need to share the data we hold with service providers and the suppliers who provide and maintain our systems, the venues and associate suppliers for your event, payment service providers, our accountants and if necessary our solicitors; plus any authority if required to by law, or if disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of W.A Carr and Son, our staff, customers and suppliers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Your rights

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes, such as using information you supply to us to provide you with new product announcements and other information we believe may be of interest to you. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processes by contacting [email protected]. We will then cease to process your data where the law allows as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days.
