2. The data we collect about you
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
- Identity Data includes title, first name, last name.
- Contact Data includes billing address, delivery address, email address and telephone numbers.
- Transaction Data includes details about payments to and from you and other details of products and services you have purchased from us.

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
We do not collect any Financial Data, such as your bank account and payment card details, because your payments are processed either through PayPal or Sage Pay.
We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you, such as details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data, or any information about criminal convictions and offences.

In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us. We will notify you at the time if this is the case.

Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish us to explain how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us at https://www.tekzone.co.uk/contact
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
6. International transfers
Except as expressly referred to in paragraph 5 above, we do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area.
7. Data security
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
8. Data retention
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
We keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, and Transaction Data) for up to six years in order to be able to comply with our statutory obligations to them under the Sale of Goods Act, etc. We may also be required by law to keep this information for up to six years after they cease being customers for tax and other regulatory purposes.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
9. Your legal rights
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws, which are summarised below. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at https://www.tekzone.co.uk/contact. You will not normally have to pay a fee to exercise any of your rights. However, if you request access to your personal data, we may charge a reasonable fee, or may refuse to comply with your request, if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Subject to your complying with the preceding paragraph, we aim to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. If your request is particularly complex, or if you have made a number of requests, it may take us longer than one month, in which case we will notify you and keep you updated.
Summary of legal rights:
Subject access request - this enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are processing it lawfully.
Data correction request – you may ask us to correct any incomplete or inaccurate personal data we hold about you (though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us before doing so).
Erasure request - you may ask us to delete or remove any personal data we hold about you (a) where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it (b) where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (c) where we may have processed your information unlawfully or (d) where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that, for specific legal reasons (which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request) we may not always be able to comply with your request.
Objection to processing – you may object to our processing your personal data (a) where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes and (b) where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which you feel means this has an undue impact on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, however, we may be able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds which override your objections.
Restriction of processing – you may ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the meantime if (a) you want us to establish the data's accuracy (b) our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it (c) you need us to hold the data, when we would otherwise have no need to do so for our own purposes, so you can establish, exercise or defend legal claims or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Transfer request – you may ask us to transfer your personal data to you, or to a third party you nominate, in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. This applies only where you initially provided the data to us in electronic form, either for us to perform a contract with you or otherwise to use with your consent.
Withdraw consent - where we are relying solely on your consent as the legal ground for processing your personal data, you may withdraw such consent at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent and, if you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. Please note that withdrawing consent has no effect where paragraph 4 above indicates we are relying on some other legal ground for processing your personal data.
