Privacy Statement

Community Housing TECS (CHTECS) is committed to the highest levels of data privacy.  This online shop is a part of the overall service that we offer. As such, all personal data collected whilst a customer navigates the site and purchases products and services is used purely to ensure that those products and services can be supplied accurately and safely.

Our online shop offers the chance for customers to receive a regular newsletter from CHTECS detailing the latest news about our products and services.  Information gathered is used purely for that purpose and is not passed on to 3rd party organisations.  Customers can unsubscribe at any time.

In addition to the personal data gathered to enable an order to be fulfilled, many of our services will require additional personal information about the person using the product or service.  This information will be captured in two ways.  Either by phone from one of our team members in advance of an installation or delivery of a product our service or by one of our installation team if they are carrying out a physical installation at the customer’s home.

The following table details what kind of personal data we gather and why.
