We endeavour to treat personal and confidential information with care and respect. To reflect this, we are committed to upholding the statements below.

We collect only the personal information required to provide services to our customers and potential customers. This includes:

Other information is collected by us but this is either anonymised (as in the case of IP addresses) or is business information. Where we collect personal information, we do so on the basis that the individual has specifically consented or on the basis that an individual has or is entering into transactions with Truro Farm Machinery Ltd.

We will make it evident when we are collecting personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it. When you provide personal information, we will enter and store it in our database and use it to contact you to continue to discuss business, services and products which may be of mutual benefit.

Retention and data storage

When we store data, reasonable measures are taken to protect personal information from access by unauthorised persons. This information will be stored, archived and backed up as part of our systems which are maintained on our office-based servers.

In order to maintain the accuracy and relevancy of information, we perform checks every year and this may include making contact with the subjects of the data to check details. When we do store information, we keep it for the following periods:

  1. Information gathered on our website for the purposes of promoting and delivering our services is retained for 3 years from the date of consent being provided.
  2. Correspondence not relating to a contract will be retained for 3 years following its creation.
  3. Records and documents relating to financial transactions will be retained for 7 years after the end of the transaction.
  4. Other information will be kept for periods as defined in our retention policies which can be provided on request.
  5. Bank account or credit/debit card information is only kept for as long as it takes to process and is then securely destroyed.

Where else does data go? As a principle we do not share any of the personal information that we hold. However, in the course of running our business some data does get transferred outside of our organisation:

  1. Where you have provided our name as a trade reference to another company we will share relevant information with that company should they contact us.
  2. Passing your details on to product providers for the purposes of determining if they will provide you with a finance facility
