We only collect the data that is required for the legitimate reasons of running our business and to provide the service to our customers. We do not collect or store any personal data with regard to gender, age, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

Data we collect when you make an enquiry via telephone for which you ask us to reply via e mail or telephone

We will request your name, telephone number and e mail address. Your e mail address will be stored on our e mail system when we reply to you via this system.

Paper notes regarding telephone conversations are destroyed within 4 to 8 weeks of an order being despatched or the enquiry being considered as no longer ‘live’.


Data we collect when you use our product enquiry links

Our website includes various hyperlinks which enable you to send us an e mail in order to enquire about a certain product type (e.g bearings).  Your e mail will be stored on our e mail system and we will use it to answer your query and for that purpose only.


Data we collect when you use our ‘send me a catalogue by e mail’ feature

Our website includes a page and hyperlink which enable you to send us an e mail in order to request a PDF catalogue. Your e mail will be stored on our e mail system and we will use it to send you the catalogue and for that purpose only.

 4. What we use your data for

 Your name and address (or shipping address if different) are required in order for us to deliver the goods to you.

Your e mail address is required to enable us to send you an order acknowledgment message, a notice of dispatch of your order, and for any other messages we may need to send you in respect of your order (delays, shortages etc). We will also use your e mail address to answer e mailed queries, questions, or requests for information (including PDF catalogues)

Where the shopping cart records an order for which the payment has not been completed, we may send you an e mail asking if you wish us to proceed with the order or not. Only one e mail of this sort will be sent per ‘abandoned’ order.

When you place an order for the first time, your order and address details are recorded on the shopping cart system operated on our behalf by Mals-e Commerce Ltd. This data is then accessible to you for review via a link contained in the order acknowledgment e mail that is automatically sent to you after payment has been made. Access is via a randomly assigned password that is embedded into the email link. You can change this password if you wish however please note that as this password may be visable to us and the operators of the Mals-e Commerce system, it so should not be a password that you use for other online login systems.

You can also view past orders placed with us by using the e mail link. All of your information can be removed from the shopping cart system at your request. Subsequent orders are recorded on the Mals-e Commerce system enabling your order history to be viewed at a later date if you wish. The Mals-e Commerce system uses your e mail address to identify you and group your orders together. If you change your e mail address subsequent orders may not be grouped with previous orders however we can consolidate your records if you advise us. Similarly, we will remove all your data from the order system on request.

We also keep a record of your data and order details on our own computer systems in order to comply with relevant financial and legal requirements.

Data is normally retained for 10 years.


 5. Who we may share your data with

The information you supply when placing an order is collected by the mals-E Commerce shopping system and passed to us so we can fulfil your order.

Your data will also be passed to the on-line payment agency you select when ‘checking out’.

The agencies you can select are :

PayPal : for payments that can be made via a PayPal account, or by use of a credit or debit card


We will need to share your address information with delivery companies in order to get the goods you order to you.

Most orders are dispatched by Royal Mail and only your name and address are required to be shared with Royal mail.
