  • We collect information to provide services or goods, to provide information, for administration, analysis and for the prevention and detection of crime.
  • We will make sure that we update your data, when you tell us to.
  • We only collect the information that we need or that would be useful to us to provide you with the best possible service and experience.
  • We do our very best to keep personal information secure.
  • We never sell your data and we will never share it with another company for marketing purposes.
  • We only share data where we are required by law or with carefully selected partners who we work with. All our partners are required by their contract to treat your data as carefully as we would, to only use it as instructed, and to allow us to check that they do this.
  • Our websites use Cookies - for more information check our Cookies policy.

    They are the basics, but don't forget to come back later and read the full policy (below), so you've got all the details you need.

    THE FULL POLICY:

    This policy applies to all the websites we operate, our use of emails and text messages for marketing purposes and any other methods we use for collecting information. It covers what we collect and why, what we do with the information, what we won't do with the information and what rights you have:


    What information do we collect?

    What type of data do we collect from you?

    The personal information we collect from you might include your name, address, email address, IP address, and information regarding what website pages are accessed and when. If you purchase a product from us, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third-party payment processors, who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions, as explained below?

    Information we receive from other sources

    We may also obtain personal information about you from other sources. We may also combine your personal information with other information we collect from third parties.

    How do we use your information?

    We may use your information to:
  • process orders that you have submitted;
  • to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered between us;
  • dealing with entries into a competition;
  • seek your views or comments on the services we provide;
  • notify you of changes to our services;
  • send you communications which you have requested and that may be of interest to you. These may include information about campaigns, promotions of our group companies’ goods and services;
  • process a job application; and
  • prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our websites and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf.

    We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfil our statutory obligations. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

    Processing your information

    We will process personal information for certain legitimate organisational purposes. This is because when you, for example, request to receive services or products from BOMAG (GB) Limited, we have a legitimate organisational interest to use your personal information to respond to you and where there is no overriding prejudice to you by using your personal information for this purpose. This also includes some or all the following:

    where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our services / communications for the benefit of our "customers";
  • to identify and prevent fraud;
  • to enhance the security of our network and information services;
  • to understand better how our "customers" interact with our website;
  • to provide postal communications which we believe will be of interest to you; and
  • to determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising.

    Wherever BOMAG (GB) Limited process data for these purposes, we will always ensure that your own personal rights take precedence and take account of these rights. You have the right, at any time, to object to BOMAG (GB) Limited processing your data in this way. There are circumstances when BOMAG (GB) Limited will rely on obtaining your consent to our use of your personal information. This is the case, for example, where we seek to obtain your consent to receive “Marketing” Communications via email about BOMAG (GB) Limited.

    When we contact you by email, every message we send will include a link to tell us that you do not wish to receive emails from us in the future.

    Sharing your information

    Who has access to your information?
  • We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
  • We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
  • We will only share your information if:
  • We are legally required to do so, e.g. by a law enforcement agency legitimately exercising a power or if compelled by a Court order.
  • We believe it is necessary to protect or defend our rights, property or the personal safety of our staff, or visitors to our premises or websites.
  • We are working with Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf.

    Working with third party providers

    We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process warranty or send you mailings). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the BOMAG (GB) Limited group for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

    When you are using our secure online payment pages, your payment is processed by a third-party payment processor, who specialises in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact us.

    Your choices about marketing

    You have a choice about whether you wish to receive information from us. If you do want to receive direct marketing communications from us about products and services, then you can select your choices by ticking the relevant boxes situated on the form on which we collect your information.

    We will not contact you for marketing purposes by email, phone or text message unless you have given your prior consent. We will not contact you for marketing purposes by post if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted. You can change your marketing preferences at any time by contacting us by email: datamanager.gb@bomag.com
     or telephone 01622 716611

    How you can access and update your information

    The accuracy of your information is important to us. If you change email address, or any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at:  datamanager.gb@bomag.com or write to Data Manager, BOMAG (Great Britain) Limited, Sheldon Way, Larkfield, Aylesford, Kent, ME20 6SE or telephone 01622 716611. You have the right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you. You have the right to be forgotten unless there is a legal or other reason why we need to use your data. Please tell us if you want to exercise this right.

    Storing and Security of your data

    When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated and stored securely.

    Information is stored by us electronically. We may transfer the information to other offices and to other reputable third-party organisations as explained above. We may also store information in paper files.

    Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

    We will keep your information only for as long as we need it to provide you with the goods, services or information you have requested, to administer your relationship with us, to comply with the law, or to ensure we do not communicate with you if you have asked us not to do so. When we no longer need information, we will always dispose of it securely.
