The Data Protection Act

We will only use your information for the purpose as described and we do not pass on your details to any other government department or third party unless you have given us permission to do so. You have a right to access your personal data and rectify any inaccuracies.

How do we protect your information?

For the purposes of data privacy, Gard Plasticases is the data controller of the personal information processed in relation to the Gard Plasticases website.
We take great care to protect the data that we collect.

When you provide us with your personal information, (for example, via the “Contact Us” section of the website), Gard Plasticases offers the use of a secure server. The secure server software encrypts the information that you input before it is transmitted to us. In addition, we have strict security procedures covering the storage and disclosure of your information in order to prevent unauthorized access and to comply with applicable data privacy law. This means that sometimes we may ask you for proof of identity before disclosing any personal information to you.

Your Rights

You have the right to object at any time to the use of your personal data by Gard Plasticases in connection with this website, although this may prevent you from receiving the useful information with which we can provide you in relation to the services we offer. However, your personal data will continue to be used by us for the purposes of maintaining an audit trail. You also have the right to access the information held about you by us and to have this information amended if incorrect. You are entitled to receive a copy of this Privacy Policy.

Machine-readable privacy policy

Gard Plasticases uses the World Wide Web Commission standard P3P (Platform for Privacy Preferences) to describe how we process data. If you use a P3P enabled browser, for example Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, then it will read the P3P policy and use it to help decide whether to accept or reject the Gard Plasticases cookie. The P3P policy contains the same information as the human readable policy that you are reading, but in a compact form that allows it to be sent with each request without using up excessive bandwidth. You can learn more about P3P on the W3C website.
