Privacy Statement

Certis UK is a branch office of Certis Europe BV. Certis is aware that the security of your private information from the use of our website is an important concern. Therefore the protection of your personal data is taken very seriously. This privacy policy only relates to how the UK branch will use your data. The continual development of our website requires occasional adjustments to our privacy statement. We retain the right to make changes when necessary.

Collection of Data

You can use our website without disclosing your personal data. You are not required to provide personal information as a condition of using our site, except as may be necessary to provide you with a product or service at your request.

We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes, but maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified. In cases when personal data is provided to others to provide you products or services you have requested, or for other purposes you have authorized, we rely on technical and organizational means to assure that applicable data security regulations are followed.

Collection and processing of personal data

We collect personal data only when you provide it to us, through registration, completion of forms or e-mails, as part of an order for products or services, inquiries or requests about materials being ordered and similar situations in which you have chosen to provide the information to us. The database and its contents remain at our company and stay with data processors or servers acting on our behalf and responsible to us. Your personal data will not be passed on by us or by our agents for use by third parties in any form whatsoever, unless we have obtained your consent or are legally required to do so.

Purposes of Use

The data we collect will only be used for the purpose of supplying you with the requested products or services or for other purposes for which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided by law.

Right of Access and Correction

You have the right to review and amend any personal data stored in our system if you believe it may be out of date or incorrect. Just contact us using the details given below in the Contacts section.

Right of Cancellation

You have the right at any time to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data in the future.  Again, just send an e-mail to the address given below

Data Retention

We only retain personal data for as long as is necessary for us to render a service you have requested or to which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided by law (e.g. in connection with pending litigation).
