We (ERG Scotland Limited) are committed to protecting your privacy during your visits to ERG Scotland Limited websites and recognise our responsibility to keep the information you provide to us confidential at all times.
We protect your personal information on the Internet to an equivalent high standard to that you experience through any other channels through which we may interact with you, such as our showrooms, showsites, home visits or on the telephone.
A ‘cookie’ is information that a website stores on your computer so that it can remember something about you at a later time. Cookies are commonly used on the Internet and do not harm your system.
The cookies used on ERG Scotland Limited websites do not include any information that others could read and understand about you, such as your name or contact details.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
This practice is strictly adhered to. We know that people have concerns about cookies, but we believe that the benefit we both gain from their proper use is worthwhile. You may set your web browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) to notify you of cookie placement requests or decline cookies completely. You can delete the files that contain cookies – those files are stored as part of your Internet browser.
When you apply for a product or service on the ERG Scotland Limited website, you will be asked for personal information that is needed to process your application.
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
- Internal record keeping.
- We may use the information to improve our products and services.
- Our representatives will follow up your specific request, either by e-mail, phone or mail, as part of our customer care procedures.
- We may periodically send targeted and relevant promotional information about products you have specifically enquired about (and therefore demonstrated an intent to purchase) from ERG Scotland Limited. This may include special offers or other information which we think may help you to achieve your home improvement objectives, using the contact details you provided by requesting information from us.
- You have the right to request that no further marketing information is sent to you, and we will always provide a clear option to do this on every communication.
For your protection we will also:
- Not hold more information about you than is required for the purposes for which it is being processed.
- Your information will not be held for longer than two years if you have enquired only (and not purchased from ERG Scotland Limited).
- If you are a customer who has made a purchase from ERG Scotland Limited, we are required as a minimum to hold your customer data for the lifetime of the warranty on your purchase (up to 20 years) and unless you request for your information to be removed, we will continue to hold your data on our system for up to 40 years. This is because the data we hold will be relevant should you wish to update your home improvements in the future and we may require the original/specific details of your installation.
- Take reasonable endeavours to ensure that any information about you is accurate and kept up to date.
- Process your information in accordance with your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018.
- ERG Scotland Limited is part of the Conservatory Outlet Network of retailers (a network of independent retailers who exclusively sell the Conservatory Outlet Limited range of manufactured products). In the unlikely event that ERG Scotland Limited is unable to service your request (for example, due to geographic restrictions), then your data may be shared with another retailer from within the Conservatory Outlet Network who is able to service your postcode area. When you provide your personal information for us to process your request, your data will remain within the Conservatory Outlet Network only, and any party from within the Network that is unable to service your request will delete your personal information within seven days.
We do not have any control over the websites of any other company outside ERG Scotland Limited. If you click on a link on our site that takes you to another website we cannot be held responsible for your privacy when you are on that website.
