Legal Basis for using Personal Data

Cambrian Granite will only process Personal Data where we have a legal basis to do so. The legal basis will depend upon the reason we collected and the needs to use the Personal Data. Under UK and EU data protection legislation in almost all cases the legal basis will be because:

  • Processing of the Personal Data is necessary to support your consumption of products and/or services.
  • Processing of the Personal Data is necessary to support the creation of a contract with you as a new Customer.

How long will we keep Personal Data

We will only process your personal data providing you have given your consent for us to do so.

The legitimate interest relates to a legal requirement for us to hold your personal data and financial information on record for up to a total of five years. We will actively review the Personal Data we hold and delete it securely, or in some cases anonymise it, when there is no legal, business or customer need to retain it.


We will not sell or rent your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for their marketing purposes.

We may pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to send you newsletters, to complete an aftersales request or to help you find a legitimate repair professional). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure.

We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party, or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation, or if we’re under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our supporters and customers. However, we will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected. International data transfer.

Occasionally the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside of the European Union (EU). For example, any company we use which requires access to your personal data may have servers located outside of the EU or you may access our services outside of the EU which means your information may be transferred outside of the EU to provide you with those services. Please be aware that if your information is transferred outside of the EU, we will ensure appropriate security measures are undertaken with the aim of maintaining your privacy rights as defined in this privacy policy.
