Our legal basis for processing your personal information
We promise that we shall only use your data in the way you wish, and we shall always respect your privacy. We process your data under the following legal grounds:
- The processing is necessary to meet contractual obligations into which you have entered as a customer, worker or supplier. Where required, failure to provide mandatory data fields identified by a ‘*’ will mean that we shall be unable to do so.
- The lawful justification for sending you marketing communications about our business, services and news is because we have a legitimate business interest for your data to be used for this specific purpose. You are in complete control of your data and can choose not to receive these messages, either when you first provide your data, or in every communication we send you afterwards. These marketing communications include:
- Email notifications and letters where you have provided us with your email address
- Postal / telephone marketing, though we shall always check telephone numbers against the Telephone and Corporate Telephone Preference Services and will only make telephone calls to you where your number is listed if you have told us that we may do so.

Your information will be held and used by the following parties under our control:
- To workers who deliver our services

- to Geostream Solutions Ltd who provides us with technical support
- to MailChimp and Copernica, who distribute our emails
- to Print-Rite [Hong Kong], who hosts our customer database
- to courier services such as DHL, DPD and GLS who deliver for us
- to eCom who distribute goods on our behalf throughout Europe

We shall keep your personal data within Print-Rite and our trusted third parties except where disclosure is required by law, for example to government bodies such as HMRC and law enforcement agencies.
How long we keep your personal information
We only keep your personal information for as long as we need to, so that we can use it for the reasons described above. Where your information is no longer required or is no longer relevant, we will ensure it is disposed of securely.
The actual period for which we store your personal information will vary depending on the type of personal information and how it is used. For example:
- Customer personal details for marketing information will be held for a period of 12 months since your last interaction with us
- To make sure that you do not receive marketing from us after you have told us to stop sending it, we need to keep a record of that instruction with your contact details. We shall hold that information until you tell us otherwise.
- CVs and interview notes from unsuccessful applicants will be held for 6 months after notifying you that you have not been successful.
- Where necessary, we shall keep your personal data for as long as required to do so by law; and where required to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to:

You have the right at any time to ask us what personal information we hold about you, and to ask us to update, amend or delete any data that is incorrect or out of date. As data controller, we will be as clear and transparent as possible and uphold any requests for data disclosure or amendment as soon as possible.
To protect your privacy and security we may need to verify your identity before disclosing or deleting your data.
- Rectification, erasure or restriction of your information where this is justified
The accuracy of your personal data is important to us. You can rectify/update your personal data, including your address and contact details at any time. If you find any inaccuracy in your data at any time, we will delete or correct it promptly at your request. Proof of identity may be required in some circumstances.
- Object to the processing of your information where this is justified
You have the right to ‘block’ or suppress processing of your personal data. However, we will retain just enough of your personal data to ensure that the restriction is respected in the future. You have the right to object to your personal data being processed, for marketing and for research purposes. From the very first communication from us and every marketing communication we send after you will have the right to object to marketing. For email unsubscribes, it may take up to 48 hours for an amendment to become effective. For post and telephone, it may take 21 days.
