Our activities are only covered by this Privacy and Cookies Policy.

These companies must operate to TSL standards but please make sure that you always check the privacy policies of the websites you use so you know who runs the website and how they will use your data.
When we refer to “we” or “our” or “us” or “TSL”, we are referring to Thomas Sanderson but only in relation to TSL’s use of information collected by us from you.
WHAT INFORMATION WILL TSL COLLECT ABOUT YOU ?
When you participate in, access or sign up to any of TSL’s services, activities or online content, such as newsletters, competitions, message boards, web and mobile notifications, telephone or text or make a contract with us, we may receive personal information about you. This can consist of information such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone, text or mobile number, gender or date of birth, as well as information collected about who also lives at your address.
Please note that sometimes we will require you to provide additional personal information, and on occasions this may include sensitive personal information. When we do this we will provide further information about why we are collecting your information and how we will use it.
Where we provide personalised services, we may ask your permission to review third party data about you, in order to get to know you better and to provide more effective personalisation. Some of our services enable you to sign-in via a third party service. If you choose to sign-in via a third party app, you will be presented with a dialogue box which will ask your permission to allow TSL to access your personal information (e.g. your full name, date of birth, email address and any other information you have made publicly accessible). Please note that any information that is not required by the particular service you have opted to use will not be retained by us.
TSL collects information about how you use our Apps, websites or other content online, and the device(s) you use to access the services. This includes collecting unique online identifiers such as IP addresses, which are numbers that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet.
HOW WILL TSL USE THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS ABOUT YOU?
TSL will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
YOUR TSL CONTRACT
When you make a Contract with us, you will be sent a copy of it together with all associated documentation, utilising the data provided to us. To provide you with a seamless experience, it may be necessary to share your personal information between different departments within our company. We will only share what we need to in order to provide the goods or services you are purchasing from us - we will never routinely share all of the data we each hold about you.
Your TSL Contract will always be covered by the policies of this website. But, please be aware that additional policies may apply if your TSL Contract is linked to another Contract.
WHEN WILL TSL CONTACT YOU ?
TSL may contact you:
Please be cautious if you receive any emails or calls from people asking for your personal information and claiming to be from TSL. Please be particularly aware if anyone contacts you requesting your personal Bank Details and if you believe at any time that you may be the victim of Fraud then please do contact us immediately via our Customer Services Team on 0800 014 2525.
WILL YOU BE CONTACTED FOR MARKETING PURPOSES?
TSL will only send you marketing emails or contact you on other media platforms where you have agreed to this. We may personalise the message content based upon any information you have provided to us and your use of such platforms.
We may use information which we hold about you to show you relevant advertising on third party sites. This could involve showing you an advertising message where we know you have a TSL Contract and have used goods and services. If you don’t want to be shown targeted advertising messages from us, some third party sites allow you to request not to see messages from specific advertisers on that site in future. If you want to stop all personalised services from us, including targeted advertising messages on third party sites you can ask us to disable personalisation.
WILL TSL SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH ANYONE ELSE?
We will keep your information within TSL except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies, including for child safety and protection reasons) or as described below in this section under the heading Offensive or Inappropriate Posting of Content.
We may share your information within our company and with companies within the Hunter Douglas Group where this is necessary to provide you with the goods and/or services you have requested to purchase.
Generally, we will use your information within TSL and will only share it outside TSL where you have requested it or given your consent. However, we may share with third party sites some data, with appropriate security measures, to show you relevant advertising on third party sites, as set out in Section 7 above. Sometimes TSL uses third parties to process your information on our behalf, e.g., to provide services or analysis, or to comply with the terms of your Contract, or to provide an extraneous service at our request for your personal benefit. TSL requires these third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and TSL requires that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.
We may share your personal information internally (i.e. with other departments within TSL), to keep our database accurate and up to date.
OFFENSIVE OR INAPPROPRIATE POSTING OF CONTENT
If you post or send content which may reasonably be deemed to be offensive, inappropriate or objectionable anywhere on or to TSL websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any TSL service, TSL may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
Where TSL reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted on the internet or other media platforms may be defamatory, including hate speech), TSL may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties, including to laws enforcement agencies. TSL would only do so in circumstances where such disclosure is permitted under applicable laws, including data protection laws.
HOW LONG WILL TSL KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ?
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity or legitimate business interest. If you make a request to us in writing to delete your personal information then we will do so immediately or as soon as is reasonably possible, and any remaining information will be purely be used to maintain our business records and also anonymised if utilised for analytical purposes.
The same considerations will apply where you post content together with your personal information (User Generated Content or UGC).
CAN YOU DELETE YOUR DATA?
You can always ask us to delete the data we hold about you. You can do so by making a written request to us to : [INSERT E-MAIL ADDRESS AS APPROPRIATE].
As explained in Section 9 above, deleting your data will erase any personal information that we have about you and it will mean any data we do hold about how you have used TSL will be made anonymous.
Deleting your data will not delete the data you shared with TSL for reasons that are not connected with your TSL Contract.
CAN YOU FIND OUT WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION TSL HOLD ABOUT YOU?
Under the Data Protection Act 1998, and future legislation including the General Data Protection Regulation (which will be introduced in May 2018), you have the right to request a copy of the personal information that TSL holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We currently charge £10.00 for information requests and require you to prove your identity with 2 pieces of approved identification). We will use reasonable efforts consistent with our legal duty to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files.
