Disclosing Your Information


We will not sell, rent, or give away information that personally identifies customers to third parties except where elements of the business have been outsourced and the provision of such information is required for the provision of services to you (for example a credit reference check when opening a credit account). Under such circumstances, the security and confidentiality of personal information would form a part of the legal agreement between us and the supplier of the outsourced service.
From time to time, we may release aggregated and anonymised marketing statistics to business partners, or may use these in press releases, advertising, or published reports. Gaffey Technical Services Ltd may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Gaffey Technical Services Ltd rights or property, other users of this site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. In addition, Gaffey Technical Services Ltd may disclose user information when required by law.

Storing Your Personal Data


Your personal data may be processed by staff operating outside the European Economic Area, for example, a credit card company engaged in the processing of your payment details. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all reasonable steps to make sure that your data is treated securely and in agreement with this Privacy Policy.



Data that is provided to us is stored on our secure servers. Details relating to any transactions entered into on our site will be encrypted to ensure its safety.



The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and therefore we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password so that you can access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.

Third Party Links
