Dry Ice Network (UK) Limited understands the need to protect
and respect your privacy and to look after your personal data.
This notice explains what personal data we collect, how we use it, how we store it, and the reasons why we may need to disclose it to others. It also explains your rights under the new laws.
The data we collect
The Data Protection law states that we are only able to process personal data if we have valid reasons to do so. The reasons we need to process your personal data include, but are not limited to, supplying you with products and services, communicating with you about enquiries, orders and contracts placed with us, as well as invoicing and processing payments.
For all these activities we need your consent to contact you and to keep and safely store your contact details and data.
Your personal data comes to us when you use our website, complete forms on our website, and if you contact us by telephone, fax, email, or otherwise in respect of any product or service. We also collect information from you when you register on our website, enter a promotion or survey, or when you inform us of any other matter.
If you provide us with personal data about a third party (for example when ordering a product on their behalf), you warrant that you have obtained the express consent from the third party for the disclosure and the use of their personal data.
The personal data that may be automatically collected when you use our services includes your name, address, e-mail address, phone numbers, payment information and anything relevant to our contract with you. We may also keep details of your visits to our offices and our visits to your location and other communication data.

Here is a list of all the ways that we may use your personal data and how we share the information with third parties.
For the avoidance of doubt, we do not and never will sell your personal data to third parties for marketing or advertising purposes.
We may pass your personal data to third parties for the provision of services on our behalf (for example processing your payment or locating a subcontractor). However, we will only ever share information about you that is necessary to provide the service when we have specific contracts in place, which ensure your personal data is secure and will not be used for any fraudulent or marketing purposes.
We may share your information if we are acquired by a third party and therefore your data will be deemed an asset of the business. In these circumstances, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective buyer of our business, subject to all parties entering into appropriate confidentiality undertakings. Similarly, we may share your personal data if we are under a duty to disclose data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Dry Ice Network (UK) Ltd, our customers, or others. This includes but is not limited to exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection, credit risk reduction and dispute policies. However, we will take all steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
Preventing the use or processing of your personal data may delay or prevent us from fulfilling our contractual obligations to you. It may also mean that we shall be unable to provide our products or services or process any changes you require.
You have the right to object to our use of your personal data, or ask us to delete, remove or stop using it if there is no need for us to keep it. This is known as your right to be forgotten. There are legal and accountancy reasons why we will need to keep your data, but please do inform us if you think we are retaining or using your personal data incorrectly.
Our Privacy Notice is always available to you on our website and any changes to it will be mailed or e-mailed to our current customer list at the time of amendment.
