You are advised to read this Policy carefully before using our website.
This website is owned and operated by Gregg Latchams Limited (we, us, our). You can find further information about our legal and professional status on our Regulatory Info page. We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office as a data controller under registration number ZA047393.

Your contact details and any other information provided by you may be stored in our client and contacts database(s) and may be viewed by our employees in any place in which we conduct our business.
We may automatically collect technical information about the device used by you to access our website (for example, the internet protocol (IP) address of the device and the characteristics of such device) and about your visit (for example, the pages viewed by you, how you moved about our website and how you interacted with particular pages). We may use such information as part of our efforts to keep our website safe and secure and to improve our website and ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and your device.
We may also subscribe to software products which allow us to identify business users visiting our website based on the IP address of the device used to access our website. We may use this information to contact you or your business about the products or services that we or other businesses within The GL Family offer.
Our website uses small text files, called cookies, which are automatically stored on your device when you access and use certain features of our website. As cookies are unique, we can use them to distinguish you from other users for the purposes described above. To find out more about cookies, how to refuse them and how to change your device’s cookie settings, you should visit All About Cookies. Please note that if you refuse to accept cookies or change your device’s cookie settings, you may not be able to use all of our website’s features.
Our website uses the following categories of cookies based on guidance produced by the International Chamber of Commerce (note: the link to this guidance is not the original source, which is no longer available):
Our website uses the following cookies (called first party cookies) which are stored on your device by the server that hosts our website:

Additional cookies (called third party cookies) may be stored on your device by servers operated by third parties when you view certain content or use certain features of our website:
We will never share your personal information to any person or organisation outside of The GL Family except:
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff members operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. For example, our website uses an encrypted connection to make it difficult for unauthorised people to view information travelling between our server and your device.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted and any transmission is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict internal procedures and security measures to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Please let us know if the personal information which we hold about you needs to be corrected or updated. We periodically email contacts on our database(s) asking them to confirm that their personal information is correct. If you are unsure about whether any email making such request has been sent by us, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by emailing us at email@example.com or clicking “Unsubscribe” in our emails.
The Data Protection Act 1998 also gives you the right to access the information we hold about you, subject to certain exemptions. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with that Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
We may revise this Policy at any time by amending this page. Where we do so, we will include a note of the change(s) that have been made (at the bottom of this page) and you should check this page occasionally to take notice of such changes, as they will be legally binding on you.
Questions, comments and requests regarding this Policy should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
