We use the personal information we hold about you for a number of different purposes, which we list below. Under data protection law we need to have a valid legal basis for using your personal information, we also set out below the legal bases which we will be relying upon.

We will also use the personal information we hold about you to comply
with any regulatory requirements or applicable laws and our legal basis for
doing so will be that it is necessary for us to so to comply with legal
obligations to which we are subject.
Some of the personal data we request will be because we have a legal or contractual requirement to obtain and use the information or it is necessary for us to obtain the information to be able to enter into a contract with you. Failure to provide such information will prevent us from providing you with such goods and/or services.

4. How long do we keep your information for?
To make sure we meet our legal data protection and privacy obligations, we only hold on to your personal data for as long as we actually need it for the purposes we acquired it for in the first place.
This means we will usually keep information relating to any purchase you
make for 15 years in case any contractual disputes arise and also to ensure

should you wish to order replacements after the expiry of any warranties.
