Privacy Policy

Clwyd Transport Services Ltd (CTS) collects data about individuals, usually within a business context. CTS treats all data which identifies an individual or when combined with any other information identifies an individual as Personal Data.

As CTS is registered and based in the UK, the decision has been taken to nominate the UK Information Commissioners Office (ICO) as our Lead Data Protection Supervisory Authority and as such all of our practices will comply with guidance issued by the ICO.

Unless otherwise stated, CTS will be what is known as the ‘Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us; this means we control what happens to the data in our possession.

CTS collects various personal data which may include but is not limited to name, address, email, phone number, age, IP address, job title, qualifications and interests.

  • From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.

No other 3rd parties have access to your personal data unless it is required by law. We have a Data Protection regime in place to oversee the effective and secure processing of your personal data.

DATA RETENTION

Personal data will be stored in accordance with applicable laws and kept for as long as needed to carry out the purposes described in this notice or as otherwise required by law. Generally, this means your personal information will be retained until the end of work relationship with us plus a reasonable period of time thereafter to respond to work-related enquiries or to deal with any legal matters (e.g. judicial or disciplinary actions).
