This privacy policy is a public statement of how our website applies data protection principles to processing data. We have tried to make it as a clear as possible, so that it is accessible to all.

What this policy covers

Because your privacy is important to us, and so is being transparent about how we collect, use, and share information about you, this policy is intended to help you understand:

Any information you provide to us via this website is collected by us, Andrew Piggott Contemporary Furniture.

Some anonymous data is also collected by Google Analytics, while our social media features will collect data in the form of cookies about social actions you might take. More on this is included below.

What data is being collected?

We collect data via our website’s contact form, which collects information such as your name, company, job title, email and telephone number which is also emailed to us. This information is not stored on our website or its server. At the bottom of the our form we ask for consent to collect your data. Do not use the form if you do not want to give consent.

We also allow data to be collected by cookies and tracking technology. These include social media cookies and Google Analytics tracking. What these technologies do is collect information on how users interact with our website and enable us to improve.

For example, social media cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button on our website or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social media site. The social network will record that you have done this. This information may be linked to any targeting or advertising activities.

Another example is Google Analytics cookies which help us understand how visitors arrive at and browse our products and website to identify areas for improvement, such as navigation and user experience. With Google Analytics, in accordance with best practice, have set up anonymized IP addresses so your IP cannot be identified.

Opting out of cookies: You can set up your browser to refuse cookies if you want to, though that might limit some site features. To do so, you can change your browser’s options to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from a website you visit. The UK-based Information Commissioner’s Office provides more information on cookies and how to opt out here: ico.org.uk/for-the-public/online/cookies/

Will the data be shared with any third parties?

The data we collect via our website is for our use. We will not sell this information.

We do engage in partnerships with other trusted companies, but we would only share your information with them with your prior consent. A reason we might need to share your information with a third-party partner might be to process an order, in which case a third party might need to process data on our behalf.

How will the information be used?

Information we collect via this website is for the purposes of: dealing with your contact request, providing further information, arranging appointments, and occasionally updating you about our company news.

When occasionally updating you about our company news, we use the email service MailChimp, who process email data on our behalf and collect analytics about how respondents react and behave when receiving our emails. The email address that you supply to us through our website form is transferred to MailChimp’s system in accordance with the MailChimp Privacy Policy. You can opt-out of our emails in the footer of each email – please feel free to do so if you do not want to hear from us. You can also call us on +44 (0)845 576 0617, email info@andrewpiggott.co.uk or use our website contact form to get in touch about the use of your email address.

What rights does a data subject have?

One of the primary aspects of the EU’s new GDPR regulations is an increase in the rights of the data-subject (you as a website user). This includes: the right to withdraw consent to your data at any time, to inspect and correct stored data, to be forgotten (have your data deleted), and to receive in a portable format any data about you that we have.

You can request to see the data we hold on you at any point, and you can also request deletion of your data at any point.

How can a data subject raise a complaint?

If you would like to make a complaint about our website data practices, please call us on +44 (0)845 576 0617, email info@andrewpiggott.co.uk or use our website contact form to get in touch.

Only authorised personnel are allowed physical and/or digital access to our servers and data.
