  • CLD uses cookies to track your activity and help us to improve your experience when visiting our website. We can also use the information from cookies to tailor other forms of direct marketing, to ensure that you see information relevant to you and any current requirements. We can also use cookies to analyse traffic and for advertising purposes.
  • If you want to check or change what types of cookies you accept or opt-out from cookies being used in the ways mentioned above, this can usually be altered within your browser settings.
  • Most web browsers will automatically accept cookies but if you would rather we didn’t collect data you can choose to reject some or all cookies in your browser’s privacy settings. Please be advised that rejecting all cookies means that you may not be able to use all functions of our website.




  • Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR states that we can process your data where it “is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by [us] or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of [you] which require protection of personal data.”
  • Customer data:
  • We think it reasonable that if you have communicated with us in the past or we have had meaningful contact with you within the past 5 years that there is a legitimate interest that you will continue to benefit from our range of solutions, and thus we will keep you updated via forms of direct marketing.
  • We want to provide potential customers with the opportunity to hear about our products and services and request additional information. We, therefore, deem it that if you operate in a sector that regularly benefits from our products and services and your information has been made available in the public domain that we can contact you to advise you of our products and services. We will have an upfront and honest approach to this and provide you with the opportunity to opt out of any further communications from us.
  • Where we subscribe to third-party services that collate and enter data relating to ongoing projects in our industry, we will deem it that you are in a position where you wish to be contacted regarding suitable products and services. We will therefore process your data for the purposes of direct marketing to establish if you have a requirement.
  • Where you have made contact with us we will process your request in line with our business processes in order to provide you with the requested products and services. This will include processes such as arranging and attending your site and processing information that will enable us to design, manufacture and install your solution. Information obtained will be stored on our systems now and in the future to further enable us to process your requests and to keep you updated on product, service, and company updates via forms of direct marketing.
  • Personal details may be used for administrative purposes including invoicing and project management
  • Supplier data:
  • We store and process the personal data of individuals within your organisation in order to facilitate the receipt of services from you as one of our suppliers. We also hold your financial details, so that we can pay you for your services. We deem all such activities to be necessary within legitimate interests.



  • Article 6(1)(b) gives us a lawful basis for processing personal data where; “processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract”
  • In this context, a contract does not have to be a formally signed document, or even written down, as long as there is an agreement that meets the requirements of contract law. Broadly speaking, this means that the terms have been offered and accepted, you both intend them to be legally binding, and there is an element of exchange (usually an exchange of goods or services for money, but this can be anything of value)
  • Customer data.
  • Where we and you have entered into a contractual agreement to deliver products and services we will process the appropriate and required information in order to do so. i.e. address details of the company and installation site. To provide a smooth and seamless service we will also deem it reasonable to process such information as appropriate to send updates on the progress of your contract with us. Some of these updates and notifications will be automated and sent from a third-party e-marketing system.
  • End-user
  • Where CLD has been requested to act as a sub-contractor to supply products and services to you as an end-user, we deem it appropriate to process any personal details provided to us to fulfil our contractual obligation to your supplier. We will also collect; directly from you, additional personal data to fulfil our processes and ensure a seamless service. We may also store and process personal data to provide additional services such as collections, deliveries, and maintenance. Finally, data may be used on job completion to request feedback in the form of a survey, this enables CLD to confirm satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the work we have carried out and act accordingly.
