This Privacy Notice helps you to understand how we use your personal information, who we share it with and the rights that you have. For more information on your rights and how to exercise them, head straight to the Your Rights section later in this document.
This Privacy Notice applies if you shop on our retail websites, shop in our Jimmy Green shops or at our trade stands, or if you otherwise share your personal information with us, for example if you contact us with a query or we send you marketing.
We change the terms of this Privacy Notice from time to time and you should check it regularly. The last updated date is shown at the beginning of the document. If we make any material changes, we will take steps to bring it to your attention.
Who we are
We are Jimmy Green Marine Limited (“we”, “our”, “us”) and operate under the name of Jimmy Green, Jimmy Green Marine, and JGM.
We are the data “controller”, which means we are responsible for deciding how and why your personal information is used. We’re also responsible for making sure it is kept safe, secure and handled legally.
We operate to the highest standards when protecting your personal information and respecting your privacy. If you have any questions about your personal information, or how we use it, you can contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by writing to us at Jimmy Green Marine, The Old Pottery, The Meadows, Beer, Devon, EX12 3ES.
You have a number of ‘Data Subject Rights’. Below is some information on what they are and how you can exercise them. There is more information on the Information Commissioners website www.ico.org.uk
- Right of access – You have the right to request a free copy of the personal information that we hold about you.
- Right to rectification – If you think any of your personal information that we hold is inaccurate, you have the right to request it is updated. We may ask you for evidence to show it is inaccurate.
- Right to erasure (also known as the Right to be forgotten) and the Right to restriction of processing – You have the right to request that we stop processing, or delete, all your personal information that we hold. If you exercise this right, we will keep a note of your name linked to your request and it won’t prevent us from processing any new information you provide to us subsequently.
- Right to data portability – You have the right to ask us to electronically move, copy or transfer your personal information in a machine-readable format.
- Rights with regards to automated decision making – We sometimes use your personal information to make decisions by automated means. We do this to confirm your identity, and to prevent and detect crime.
- Right to withdraw consent – Where we are relying on your consent for processing you can withdraw or change your consent at any time.
The above rights may be limited in some circumstances, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal information about another person, if you ask us to delete information which we are required to have by law, or if we have compelling legitimate interests to keep it. We will let you know if that is the case and will then only use your information for these purposes. You may also be unable to continue using our services if you want us to stop processing your personal information.
If you have any general questions or want to exercise any of your rights, please contact email@example.com or call 01297 20744. Our security procedures mean that we may need to request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you in response to any request.
We encourage you to get in touch if you have any concerns with how we collect or use your personal information. You do, however, also have the right to lodge a complaint directly with the Information Commissioners Office, the data protection regulator in the UK, their contact details can be found on their website www.ico.org.uk
