What is personal data?

Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.

Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

What data do we collect?

We gather information through our website, through social media pages as well as through email messages that we may send to you.  By using these Services, you agree to this Privacy Policy. 

At times we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information.  Generally, this information is requested when you want us to provide you with information. We may collect some or all of the following personal and non-personal data:

  • Name;
  • Address;
  • Email address;
  • Telephone number;
  • Business name;
  • Information about your preferences and interests;
  • subscription to our newsletter (opt-in);
  • IP address;
  • Information provided by you in relation to submitting a job application to us.

Specifically, the data we hold will be used to contact you in response to your enquiry, update our internal records, improve the services we provide and to communicate news and events that we believe are the most relevant to you. 

We may have found your contact details using business and company websites or from subscription media databases such as your social media pages and through recommendations from colleagues, agents, partners, employees, associates and industry contacts. 

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes. We will not disclose your personal details unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime. 

We may pass your details on to third party service providers working with us, for example; agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf. However, in these cases, 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 and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.   

You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. If you do not want to receive communication, please email hello@fabcomm.co.uk requesting that your data is removed from the system.
