Privacy Notice – Introduction
Being transparent and providing accessible information to individuals about how their personal data will be used is a key element of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
At Kinch Fuel Oils Limited, we believe these principles represent a great opportunity for Kinch Fuel Oils Limited to build even stronger, more trusting and transparent relationships with our customers.
The most common way to provide this information is in a privacy notice.

Please read this Privacy Notice carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it.
In addition to any information kept in hard copy, this Privacy Notice also applies to Company-related websites, and other online services that we offer which link to this Privacy Notice.
Please also note that our website does contain links to other external websites beyond our control and we suggest that you always check the privacy notices and policies of these sites before using them, as this Privacy Notice only covers your personal information on Company-related websites.

How do we use the information about you?
We use your information to provide you with the information, process orders for products and services that you request from us, administer or otherwise carry out our obligations in relation to any agreement you have with us. The Company retains your information for the period necessary required to serve the legitimate purpose or as required by law.
We may also use this information to provide you with information about goods or services we feel may interest you. In order to respect your privacy, we will only use your personal data for marketing purposes when you are an existing customer, and as required, we will request your consent prior to using your personal data for direct marketing.
Additionally, if at any time you wish us to stop using your information for any the above purposes, please contact us using the methods explained below. We will stop the use of your information for such purposes as soon as it is reasonably possible to do so.

From time to time, we may share your personal data with other members of our group of companies and with selected third parties for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you. These third parties will not use your personal information for any other purposes than what we have agreed to with them, and we request those third parties to implement adequate levels of protection in order to safeguard your personal information.
In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition of another company, or sale of part or all of our assets, we may disclose your personal information to third parties and your personal data held may be among one of the assets transferred.
We may also automatically collect non-personal information about you such as the type of internet browsers you use or the website from which you linked to our website. We may also aggregate details which you have submitted to us. You cannot be identified from this information and it is only used to assist us in providing effective services, including in connection with the Company website.
