3. How We Collect Your Personal Data

We can obtain data about you through two methods. First, provide the information to us directly by filling out forms on our website or emailing us. Second, we may automatically collect specific data as you use our website using cookies and similar technologies. You can find more details about this in our cookie policy.

In addition, we may receive data from third-party sources. These sources may include analytics providers, such as Google, located outside of the EU. Other sources may include advertising networks, such as Facebook, search information providers, such as Google, and providers of technical, payment, and delivery services, as well as data brokers or aggregators.

We may also receive data from publicly available sources, such as the Companies House and the Electoral Register, located within the EU.

4. Marketing Communications

We process your personal data to send you marketing communications based on your consent or our legitimate interests in growing our business.

Per the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, we may send you marketing communications if you've previously purchased, requested information about our goods or services, or agreed to receive marketing communications and have yet to opt out of receiving them. In addition, we may send marketing emails without your consent for limited companies, but you can still opt-out anytime.

We will seek your express consent before sharing your data with any third party for marketing purposes.

If you wish to stop receiving marketing messages, you can opt-out by clicking on the opt-out links provided in the marketing messages or by emailing us at hello@fibreit.com. However, opting out of marketing communications does not apply to personal data collected as a result of other transactions, such as purchases or warranty registrations.

5. Disclosures of Your Personal Data

We may need to disclose your personal data to the following parties:

  • Service providers who offer IT and system administration services.
  • Professional advisers, including lawyers, bankers, auditors, and insurers.
  • Government bodies that require us to report processing activities.

We ensure that any third parties to whom we transfer your data respect the security of your personal data and comply with the law in its treatment. Therefore, we only allow these third parties to process your personal data for specific purposes and under our instructions.

6. International Transfers

We abide by the General Data Protection Regulations to ensure that your personal data is protected. If we transfer your data to third parties located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will implement appropriate measures to ensure that your personal data is protected to the same level as required by the regulation. These measures may include:

  • Transferring your personal data to countries approved by the European Commission as having adequate data protection laws; or
  • Transferring your personal data to US-based providers that are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield framework, as they have equivalent safeguards in place; or
  • Using specific contracts, codes of conduct, or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission with service providers outside of the EEA, to ensure your personal data is protected in the same way it would be in Europe.

If none of the above measures is available, we may ask for your explicit consent for the specific data transfer. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

7. Data Security

We have implemented security measures to prevent accidental loss, unauthorized access, alteration, or disclosure of your personal data. In addition, we restrict access to your personal data to our employees and partners who require such information for business purposes only. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and are instructed to process your data solely according to our guidelines.

We have established protocols to handle any suspected personal data breaches, and we will promptly inform you and the appropriate regulatory authorities of such a breach if required by law.

8. Data Retention

We will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes we collected it for. This includes fulfilling any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purposes of the processing, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We also take into account any legal requirements that apply. For tax purposes, we are required by law to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial, and Transaction Data) for six years after they stop being customers.

In some cases, we may anonymize your personal data for research or statistical purposes. In such cases, we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

9. Your Legal Rights

As per data protection laws, you have certain rights related to your personal data. These rights include the right to request access, correction, erasure, restriction, transfer, object to processing, data portability, and withdrawal of consent (if the lawful ground for processing is based on consent).

More information about these rights can be found on this website:

If you want to exercise any of these rights, you can contact us at hello@fibreit.com. We don't charge any fee for accessing your personal data or exercising your rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. In such cases, we may also refuse to comply with your request.

To ensure that we only provide personal data to those who have the right to access it, we may ask you to provide specific information to confirm your identity. We may also contact you for additional information to speed up our response. We aim to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. However, if your request is complex or if you have made multiple requests, it may take longer. In such cases, we will notify you. Suppose you are unhappy with how we collect or use your data. In that case, you can complain to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. However, we would appreciate it if you could contact us first to allow us to resolve any issues.
