The new General Data Protection Regulation comes into force in 25th May 2018. We, as a company, are obliged and committed to keep whatever data we hold on you safe, private and secure. Kingsbury Lawn Care Ltd will never pass on your data to a third party unless you ask us to.
This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. We take your data protection seriously. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we treat it. By visiting https://www.kingsburylawncare.co.uk/ you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.

GDPR Compliance - Current Customers, Marketing and Future Marketing
The only data we hold about you are your name, address, telephone number/s and e-mail address. Plus, of course, data on your grass! We hold no bank details of yours nor sensitive data. If you pay via direct debit, your bank details are held securely by GoCardless Ltd, who are also GDPR compliant.
We work on the premise of common sense, in that you contacted us for a quote, we’ve quoted, we’ve hopefully won the work and we’ve undertaken this work. In the vast majority of cases we also provide a regular service to your lawn / garden. We store your data (detailed above) in our secure office or on our password protected computers. If we did not win your work at the time of quoting, we keep the same details, as sometimes you might come back to us a year or two later for the same job. Our records are held for a minimum of 7 years (for HMRC reasons – audits or inspections).
If you are one of our suppliers, we have your details stored which may include your bank details – which we presume you want us to retain as you’d like to be paid.
If you are staff, we maintain very little information about you – as we see you daily! Your payroll details are stored by our Accountants as we presume you wish to remain being paid, and if you leave our employment, we dispose of these records, securely.
If you would like a copy of what we hold on you, which isn’t much, you are welcome to contact us. Assuming you as a customer or potential customer have contacted us requesting help with your lawn, we may use your data to contact you about our services and with lawn care help. If you would like us to delete all records of you, you are equally entitled to request this and break our relationship. Just let us know.
If you don’t like any of this, you can speak to the ICO! https://ico.org.uk/
