Privacy Policy

Last updated: 05/2018

At Quanta, we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy in line with British and European Regulations. This policy will explain when and why we collect personal information from visitors to our website, how we use this information and the conditions under which we may disclose it to others.

What information is being collected?

As part of the booking process we collect some personal information, including your name, address, telephone number and email address. When making a purchase online, your card details are collected by our third party payment processors, Braintree and Worldpay, and are not held or stored by us in any capacity.

How is your information used?

If you are a customer, we will use your personal data to:

  • Process any order that you have submitted
  • Update you on the status of any orders that you are involved in
  • Obtain feedback on the services we provide

We will also process your data for Marketing Purposes if we have a lawful basis to do so:

  • Consent – If you have double opted-in to receive our marketing updates
  • Legitimate interests – if you have not specifically opted out, we may consider the balancing act and send you very targeted e-mail marketing if we believe that you will benefit from what we are sharing. When using legitimate interests, we will clearly state, at the top of the email, the purpose of contacting you.

At any time, you can opt out of our marketing emails (we will always send you emails specific to your orders as this contains vital information that you need!), marketing phone calls and direct mail. The link to do this is at the bottom of marketing emails that we send you. You can also fill in the box below to be sent a link to change your preferences:

Who has access to your information?

Your personal data is stored internally behind our company firewall (provided by Sophos) and all data is held is accordance with the Data Protection Act and the GDPR from 25th May 2018.

We will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties nor will we share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
