What information do we collect about you?

We collect information about you when you place an order for our products or services.

We also collect information when you voluntarily complete a contact form, customer survey, or provide feedback in any other way. Including when you converse with us via our website Chat Box function, or request to join our marketing list.

How will we use the information about you?

There are several legal basis under which we may process your personal data:

Contracts – We will collect information about you to enable us to provide a quote, process your order and manage your account.

Consent – If you give your consent, we will add you to our marketing list, to keep you up to date with informative content, and the latest company news, products and services.

Legitimate interest – If you have expressed an interest in our products or services (such as by submitting a question via our website forms or Chat Box), or you have bought from us in the past, then we may contact you to see if we can assist you further.

We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

We may also need to send your details to credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies, to be able to process your order.

Legal obligation – We may also be required to process your personal information in order to fulfil any legal obligations that may arise.

Contact forms

Should you choose to contact us using the Contact us form, the Message Us form, or an email link, none of the data that you supply will be stored by this website or be passed to / processed by any third-party data processors.

Chat Box

We offer a Live Chat Box function, which is delivered by Zendesk. This service works using cookies, to let us know what pages are being looked at and when you have visited our site. We use this data to help us improve our website and the service you receive from us.

Any data you provide via the chat box, such as your name or email address, will only be transferred to our customer database, if you go on to request a written quote or to become a customer.

Otherwise, it will be deleted from the software following 18 months of inactivity. You also have the right to request that any data we hold about you is deleted at any time.

Google Analytics

Like most websites, this site uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, and to better understand how well pages are working.

Although GA records data, such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you, but Google does not grant us access to this.

GA makes use of cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides. User and event data is held on Google servers for 38 months. Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

You can find out more about them by visiting www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org

Remarketing & Heatmapping

We use Google AdWords Remarketing to advertise Rapid Retail across the Internet. AdWords remarketing will display relevant ads tailored to you based on what parts of the Rapid Retail website you have viewed, by placing a cookie on your machine. THIS COOKIE DOES NOT IN ANYWAY IDENTIFY YOU OR GIVE ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER. The cookie is used to say ‘This person visited this page, so show them ads relating to that page’. Google AdWords Remarketing allows us to tailor our marketing to better suit your needs and only display ads that are relevant to you.

We also want to better our understanding of how visitors currently use certain key pages on the website, so we use a tool called Lucky Orange. The heatmap tool works by using cookies that help us understand how website visitors are using certain pages, for example by recording mouse clicks, mouse movements and scrolling activity. Lucky Orange does not track this activity on any site that does not use the Lucky Orange system and you can choose to disable the service at any point by visiting http://www.luckyorange.com/disable.php.
