There is a full privacy statement below which you are free to read – however, this section provides a summary of what data we collect and what we do with it in simple and straightforward terms.
If you have any questions at all, feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Online data – we use google analytics to collect overall data on the number of visitors to our site and what they do when they are there. So, for example, if 100 people viewed our home page and then 86 of them viewed our services page, we can see that information. We also review how long people stay on our site and broadly, where they come from, down to a regional level. We do not store or collect any data on IP addresses or use that data to identify individuals. Although this information may be available through google analytics, it is not used by us or processed in any way.
Customers – we collect the names and addresses of our customers as well as their contact details for the purposes of delivering on the contracted good and services. This is necessary if we are going to be able to deliver on their requirements. Clearly, it would be difficult to supply a hot water boiler system if we could not discuss the requirements with the customer, take payment and process the delivery details. Similarly, we need to be able to ring customers to discuss delivery details, as required, and after the sale to deal with any questions or issues. We communicate with our customers during the delivery of the job on the legal basis of contractual obligation. Once we have completed our job, we store customers’ data for up to 25 years after last contact – when it is securely destroyed (shredded). We hold the data for 25 years, because of the extensive warranty period on our products. We may also send out occasional print leaflets and emails to our customers which is done on the basis of legitimate business interest. It is in our interest to keep in touch with our customers through the lifetime of our products.
You can opt out of receiving any communications, other than that mandated by our contractual obligations, by clicking here.
We pass on your data to our approved suppliers, if required, to complete the work you have requested. In particular we have to pass on data to our delivery company, as you would expect. We do not sell your data or pass it on to unrelated third parties. We keep your data as secure as possible, respecting your right to privacy at all times.
You have the right to be forgotten by us. If you want to be forgotten, please click here. We will remove all the data we hold other than what is required under our contractual obligations (we must hold some data due to the warranty on our products). We also need to store some data, in a secure place, to ensure that we remember your request to be forgotten (for example should we need to restore systems from a backup, we need to know, to remember, that you wanted to be forgotten).
As part of handling and processing your data we have a designated Data Controller and this is your first point of call should you have any issues or questions about what we do, or why we do it.
Our Data Controller is:
Salon Aquaflow Hot Water Systems

Data Retention Policy
We store your data as securely as is practical, respecting your privacy. It is stored in a few locations, our offices and some on mobile phones and some with our appointed third parties (delivery companies). We store data for a maximum of 25 years after the point of last contact, after which it is securely destroyed.
It is a requirement for us to retain data for this length of time due to the extensive warranty period on our product ranges. We believe that 25 years is a reasonable timescale, allowing us to retain information should it be required for warranty claims.
Data is securely deleted, and/or shredded at the end of the retention period.
A small amount of data – such as analytics data on our website – is stored permanently.
