This privacy statement addresses what personal information we collect and how we handle the personal information shared with us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices. We will not collect any personally-identifiable information about you (that is, your name, address, telephone number, or email address) ('Personal Data') unless you provide it to us voluntarily. If you do not want your personal data collected, please do not submit it.
For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the 'Act') the data controllers are CPS Manufacturing Co. LLP (t/a ‘CPS’) whose registered office is at Brunel House, Brunel Close, Harworth, Doncaster, DN11 8QA.
This privacy statement applies to personal information we obtain from and about individuals interacting with CPS and its website, products and services. It does not apply to personal information we obtain in our capacity as an employer.
2. Information Collected
This privacy statement covers all CPS businesses and subsidiaries in the United Kingdom. Additionally, mobile applications have separate privacy statements, as described in the mobile applications section below. As you interact with CPS, there may be opportunities for you to provide us with your information. Additionally, we may collect certain information about you as further described below. You may provide us with information about you through a number of sources: CPS websites, product and related events, other incentive applications, surveys, social media platforms, and through our customer call team.
We also may obtain information about you from CPS affiliates and other sources such as companies that provide lists of potential customers, if such companies are permitted to share your information with us pursuant to their privacy statements.
This website will show data from different sources where we have permission to do so - for example but not limited to:
- Contact information (such as name, address, town, county and postcode, email address and telephone number)
- Employment information (such as position, length of service in position, work email address and work phone number)
- Photographs such as those that you may submit through social media sites, if permitted
The information CPS collects about you will be used to provide customer support services, product information updates, marketing, market research and sales tracking purposes and to contact you to measure and improve our service levels. You may choose to forward information from one of our websites or emails to another person. Email addresses submitted to us for this purpose will not be captured for later use in marketing unless the recipient opts into receiving additional marketing materials from CPS.
4. Mobile Applications
CPS may develop certain mobile applications that you may download to your mobile device (CPS applications). When you download a CPS application, there may be an opportunity for you to provide us with or for us to obtain information about you. Each CPS application will display a separate privacy statement that will inform you about how any information shared via the application will be handled and how to decline such use or uninstall the application.
Through a remote lighting system, CPS may also offer applications developed by third parties (3rd party application). When you download a 3rd party application to your mobile device, the 3rd party application may collect information about you in connection with your download or use of that application. CPS is not responsible for the collection or use of information by 3rd party applications. We recommend that you carefully review the privacy statement of each 3rd party application prior to downloading or using them.
CPS may share the information it collects about you in the following instances:
- When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud or respond to a law enforcement request
- With our services providers who work on our behalf and who do not have an independent right to use the information to which they have access or that we disclose to them. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction
- With our business partners for CPS marketing activities, business partner marketing activities or both
- We will never sell your information on. Your information will only be disclosed to CPS, its affiliated or associated companies, retailers and companies working on behalf of CPS ('selected third parties')
