Who we are?

We work on behalf of manufacturing equipment suppliers and engineers providing bespoke marketing solutions, for example crafting websites, creating marketing campaigns and nurturing opportunities. In order to do this, we initiate a blend of targeted conventional marketing activities such as email marketing, telemarketing and direct mail. We also provide video media services and work extensively in the social media market.

We hold a database of sector specific B2B contacts that we have nurtured and managed so as to provide assurance of provenance. These are professionally relevant individuals for business marketing emails, business telemarketing and business direct mail. The scope of our work does not include the consumer sector.

N/A


You do not have to directly provide us with any personal data in order to browse our website. However, you may provide us with personal data by completing forms on this website, or by contacting us via telephone or email.

When you visit this website, we will automatically collect the internet protocol (IP) address of the device used by you, your physical location, as well as the type of the device, browser version and time zone setting. This will enable us to identify you as a unique user for analytical purposes, discover your browsing habits/interests via the pages/links you visit and resources you access; therefore, allowing us to optimise our website for you, and your device.  

This data may be collected and used to ascertain the organization you work for and whether you are a professionally relevant post-holder for future marketing that we, or our affiliates/customers may wish to send to you. To this aim we utilize the lead forensics platform and you can find their privacy policy here

If you contact us by e-mail, subscribe to a mailing list, or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal and non-personal data, transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of contacting the data subject.

We hold personal information relating to existing, previous and prospective customers and our employees and suppliers.

Our legal basis for processing personal data and Email Marketing

The legal basis we use under the General Data Protection Regulation for the processing of personal data are:

  • Our legitimate interests
  • Fulfilling out Contractual Obligations
  • Consent
  • Any Legal Requirements we may have such as fraud prevention

Data Processing through use of our Legitimate Interests

Broadly speaking Legitimate Interests means that we can process your personal information if:

  • We have a genuine and legitimate reason and 
  • We are not harming any of your rights, freedoms and interests
  • We’ve considered that you would not find such processing unreasonable

For example, via a variety of mechanisms we may collect and store business contact data about you if you are a professionally relevant contact for our services, or that of our customers who use our MTD email marketing campaign tool to send you marketing about their products/services and you are employed in a UK organization which is separate legal entity. Your data will only be used where the product or service might be relevant to you in your professional capacity.

However, we want to respect your wishes about how and if you are contacted. On occasion we will contact you to verify your position, check how you would prefer to receive direct marketing, whether by post, by phone or by email and to remind you of your rights via our any updates to our privacy statement.

You may of course tell us you do not wish to be contacted at all, and we will respect your wishes, add you to a suppression list, and not contact you again.

Further information explaining how we define our Legitimate Interests

We have conducted a Legitimate Interest Test which included the following considerations:

  • The relationship between ourselves and you as the data subject
  • Our Purpose/Necessity to use Legitimate Interests and other alternatives
  • The PECR regulation and it’s relevance to B2B marketing
  • The sensitivity of the personal data that we have collected and processed
  • The reasonable expectations we think you have in your professional role
  • Whether you’d be likely to object to the processing or find it intrusive
  • The safeguards we have in place to minimise any risks to your privacy
  • That a mechanism exists via which you can challenge out assessment
  • We will always ensure there is an opt-out / ability to object

The Purpose Test

We consider that we have a legitimate interest in carrying out a business in favour of the well-being of all our employees and shareholders. This is enshrined in the EU Charter of Human Rights – Article 16 - Freedom to conduct a business.

For prospective customers, identified as working for separate legal entities (“users of an electronic network”) and whom we consider are professionally relevant post holders; we consider we have a legitimate interest to process your data for the purposes of marketing of products and services. This purpose is supported by Recital 47 of the GDPR which states that:

“The processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes may be regarded as carried out for a legitimate interest”

We believe that professionals rely on being kept up to date about new products or services to help them achieve their business objectives and direct marketing is generally seen as an important tool to facilitate this.

However, we will always respect your wishes, if you’re the recipient of our marketing.

The Balancing Test

A balancing test has been undertaken to compare our legitimates interests and the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of prospective customers who require protection of their personal data,

We will only process personal data if we have determined that our services are 'professionally relevant' to you and your organisation.  Material that we send to you may be relevant based on your profile, because of the type, size or location of the organisation that you work in, or because you are the right post-holder for a certain set of decisions based on factors like your role, seniority, and responsibilities.

We believe that the recipients of our marketing have a reasonable expectation that we as a Controller will process their Personal Data.

The data we may hold on recipients originates from primary research by our telephone research team, publically available material held on websites, events we have jointly attended, personal data we have captured via business cards or similar interaction; or referrals from other organisations, data captured via visiting our websites or via subscribing to and opening our B2B emails.

The personal data we hold is strictly limited to the organisational name, contact name, email addresses, telephone numbers, postal addresses, sector/industry classification of companies that are separate legal entities. It is never sensitive data, and in most cases would likely exist in the public domain.

Our assessment has taken into consideration the Information Security Management System we are currently implementing and it also recognises the safeguards we have put in place through the implementation of the British Standard BS10012:2017 – Personal Information Management Framework delivering readiness to GDPR.

Outputs of this framework include, but are not limited to:

  • Data Protection Impact Assessments supporting ‘privacy by design and default’
  • Data Minimisation as a guiding principle
  • Pseudonymization where appropriate
  • Adding extra transparency through regularly updated privacy notices & fair processing notices
  • Regular Internal Audits and Continual Improvement
  • Encryption ‘at rest’ and ‘in transit’ where appropriate
  • Multi-factor authentication and Access Control
  • Strict data retention controls
  • Regular Staff Training and Awareness of Data Privacy Regulation
  • Other technical security methods used to protect data
  • An appointment of an independent Data Protection Officer

Our conclusion is the likelihood of impact and the severity of negative impact or distress of the data processing we undertake is negligible.

Contractual Processing

Where the processing is based on Article 6(1) par. b - necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract; we’ll process your information as customers to enable us to contact you and fulfil the services you have requested.

The information we’re likely to hold is your name, job title, your work postal address, work email address, and telephone number. Your personal information is only disclosed to our employees and sub-contractors who have met out due diligence procedures.

The legal basis for processing your data is 'fulfilling a contract' whilst we are your supplier. When you are no longer an active customer, it will be our 'legitimate interest' because you may want to order from us again. We benefit from solving communication challenges and we’d like to help you in the future. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services

Processing using Consent

There are certain circumstances, where we may need consent from you in order to process your data and we recognise the above options are not the only lawful grounds for processing data.  If this is the case we will ensure that the consent that you provide is by a clear affirmative act establishing a freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of your agreement to the processing of personal data relating to you.

You may withdraw consent at any time by either unsubscribing (via the Unsubscribe link on the footer of all network emails).

Please note that we may still be required to send you transactional or service emails relating to any services of ours that you have purchased or enquired about.

Email Marketing

In relation to any email marketing that you may receive from us, either at your request or in any other circumstances, we may monitor whether you open and/or click on any links in such emails and we uses various tracking techniques such as web beacons to measure the effectiveness of our email campaigns, ascertain your static IP address and tailor our communications to your interests

You may unsubscribe from emails at any time by clicking the relevant link in those emails. We conduct this email marketing in adherence with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation which derive from the European Directive 2002/58/EC.

This allows for B2B marketing on an opt-out basis in so long as a lawful means of processing under GDPR has been established.
