This Notice is issued to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). There is a lot of jargon used within the GDPR but basically this is about how personal information about individuals is collected, used and looked after. The nature of our business is such that we predominantly deal with other businesses. However, in doing so we inevitably collect personal information about individuals, for example their email addresses and potentially their phone numbers. As such the GDPR applies. This document sets out the detail about how the personal information provided will be used and looked after and explains the rights of those who are the subject of it.
Our commitment is to:-
The P&M Group Ltd was founded in 1987 and we trade under the name of ISD Solutions.
We operate divisions of:
ISD Special Projects
ISD Coldstore Maintenance
ISD Industrial Waterproofing
We design/consult, manufacture, supply, construct and maintain:
Commercial temperature controlled environments
Single envelope cladding
Passive fire protection
Retail supermarkets, modular coldrooms and cleanrooms
Waterproofing and surfacing
The P&M Group Ltd also wholly owns PLG Insulations Ltd. Based in Tewkesbury, PLG Insulations Ltd specialises in cold-work, pipe and vessel cladding and industrial insulation solutions from an early design stage through to final implementation.
For the avoidance of doubt for the rest of this document “The P&M Group Ltd” will represent “The P&M Group Ltd” and “PLG Insulations Ltd”.
We also have an Australian based subsidiary company, ISD Solutions (Australia) Pty Ltd. On occasions UK based customers may deal with that company and in such circumstances that company may access limited contact based information.
We will collect personal information directly from you. This will often be when we are dealing with your questions about the services which we provide or start acting for you. Further personal information will be collected whilst work proceeds. Information may be collected by face-to-face meetings, by telephone, by email or other electronic communications or from information which you provide to us via our website. Please ensure that all personal information is accurately provided as the information which is held is only as accurate as the information provided in the first place.
It is possible that we may obtain information about you as a contact point from other sources, for example if we are informed by someone else that they have recommended your company to us or we are informed that the business for whom you work may have a need for our services and you are the contact point.
We are only likely to seek information necessary for the supply of products and services to businesses for whom you work. As such the information likely to be required relates to contact details such as name, telephone number (which may be your own mobile number) and email address.
Sometimes for either security or regulatory reasons we require information to verify the identity of individuals, particularly senior employees within a company. This might for example include the requirement for copies of passports.
We will not provide personal information to anyone else save in the circumstances set out at 7 and 8 below.
We will pass personal information to other organisations from time to time, not for them to use for their own benefit but rather to assist us. This might include holding personal information to assist in the efficient administration and running of our business and to assist with customer relationship management, accounting and regulatory purposes and the holding and processing of information in electronic form including its storage and maintenance.
We may be required to provide information to Regulators, auditors, accountants and in very rare circumstances to local or public authorities including the police.
It is possible that from time to time we may wish to communicate with you concerning matters which may be of interest to you or the company which you represent. The nature of such contact will be:-
We will not communicate to you under this heading where there is any perceived detriment to you in receiving the communication.
If you do not wish to receive communications under this heading please contact Steve Baker (SBaker@isd-solutions.co.uk). In making contact please confirm the type of communications listed which you do not wish to receive or that you do not wish to receive any communications of the type listed.
The information which we require is very limited in its scope and primarily relates to contact information. This is in order to enable us to undertake work for the business which you represent and without such information we may not be able to undertake the work.
We will only retain personal information:-
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent the personal information provided from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. Access to personal information is limited to those employees and contractors who have a business need to know the personal information. Personal information will only be processed upon instructions from ourselves. Procedures have been put in place to deal with any suspected breach of the requirements under the GDPRs. You and/or the Regulator referred to below will be notified of any potentially significant breach. We have put in place systems to ensure the security of the limited amount of personal information which may be accessed by ISD Solutions (Australia) Pty Ltd.
