The information we collect and how we use it:

What information is being collected?

Optimum Electrical Limited will be what’s known as the ‘Data Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us. If we do collect any data, we only collect basic personal data about you which does not include any special types of information. This does, however, include information which can identify you as an individual in the terms of the GDPR including your name, address and your email. You may contact the Data Controller by emailing mail@optimumelectrical.net.

How is it collected?

We collect data electronically from our websites through the Contact Us page or you maybe an existing client of ours.

How long we keep your information

If we have undertaken business-to-business engagement, we are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed. Any information we use for emailing you details about updates, invoicing and general business information in the running of Optimum and your business isn’t covered by GDPR. However, any marketing emails you receive will be kept by us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information. You may do this at any time by unsubscribing.

Much of our processing will be under the basis of “contractual obligation” in other words we need and use your information for providing the services you have requested or have contracted with us.

However, when we are communicating with you regarding products and services you may be interested in receiving from us in the future, our basis for processing is in your legitimate interest (as we are communicating with you in the context of your corporate activity and identity and not in relation to your private life) we believe this to be reasonable and fair behaviour in the context of our audience. Of course, you will always have the opportunity to object as detailed below.

Asking us to suppress or remove your personal information

Should you wish to not receive information from us in future then you just email us at mail@optimumelectrical.net and we will quickly suppress your data.

Should you further wish for us to remove your information entirely (and assuming we have no other obligation to keep it) then please let us know and we will do this – but we would encourage you to let us use it for suppression purposes only.

What to do if you have a complaint

If you have a complaint please contact the Data Protection Officer at mail@optiumumelectrical.net which will deal with your request as reasonably practicable.

If you are still not satisfied with the way your complaint was handled, you can refer your complaint to UK Information Commissioner’s Office. https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
