Data security and responsibility

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

When collecting personal information, we tell people how we will use it. We keep records of people’s personal information up to date and do not retain it longer than is relevant or necessary for the purpose it was provided for.

We hold all personal data safe and secure, password protected at all times and only shared with the minimum amount of people working for the organisation who need to see it. We are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed. Your information we use for marketing purposes will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information.

We may transfer your personal information to suppliers or service providers based outside of the EEA for the purposes described in this privacy policy. If we do this your personal information will continue to be subject to one or more appropriate safeguards set out under the GDPR. These might be the use of model contracts in a form approved by regulators, or having our suppliers sign up to an independent privacy scheme approved by regulators (like the US ‘Privacy Shield’ scheme).


Controlling your personal information

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We may use your personal information to send you promotional information about third parties which we think you may find interesting if you tell us that you wish this to happen. We will not do this without your permission.

If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by contacting Fastnet House in writing or by email.

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you at any time. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please contact a Director. For more information on your rights under GDPR please refer to the ICO website.

If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.



How we use cookies

For more information on how we use cookies please read our cookie disclaimer below.


Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.


Who the information may be shared with

We sometimes need to share the personal information we process with other organisations. We will only do this in compliance with current data protection regulations. Fastnet House may share your data with the following types of company in order to provide our services to you, as set out in this statement:

  • Companies that are involved in getting your goods to you, such as payment service providers and delivery companies
  • Professional service providers, such as marketing agencies, software providers, website hosts and IT support services who help us run our business
  • Credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies, so we can help tackle fraud
  • Companies approved by you, such as social media sites (if you chose to link your accounts to us)

We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.


Our Legitimate interests and the impact on processing your data

When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under data protection laws.

“Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best services and the best and most secure experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant to you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests.

This can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we may process your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our website and IT systems are secure.

Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
