We gather and use certain information in order to communicate about and to provide products and services; to enable certain functions on the website; to respond to a specific enquiry; and, to facilitate our day to day operations. We retain this information in a secure data base and may send, from time to time, communications which we think you may find interesting and may be related to your initial enquiry.

What are the grounds for processing your information?

We are processing your data on the following grounds:

– Because you have filled in our online ‘contact us’ form and we have a legitimate interest in communicating with you to respond to your enquiry. In accordance with our obligations under data protection law, we have carefully weighed up your interests and fundamental rights and freedoms against our interest to process your information and we are satisfied that we are justified in processing your information for this purpose

Transferring your personal data

This website is hosted and operated from the UK.

We will never distribute your personal information for commercial gain. Alkoomi do not use cookies and the website does not include links to other sites.

As a general rule your personal information will not be transferred outside of the European Economic Area. However, you are aware that Alkoomi operates in Canada and Mexico and from time to time, and if your enquiry relates to either of those territories, your personal information will be processed by our international Associates located in Canada or Mexico as appropriate. As both counties are based outside of the EEA we have to ensure appropriate safeguards are in place.

In respect of transfers to Canada, we are authorised to transfer your information to our Associates in this country because Canada is a country which has been approved by the European Commission as upholding data protection law

In respect of data transfers to our Associates in Mexico, we have a binding agreement with the Associates in Mexico and that agreement is drafted on standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission.

Duration and Further Processing

We only keep your information for so long as it is reasonably necessary. When setting our data retention periods, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the information we hold, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use of disclosure of the information and the purposes for which we process the information (including whether we can achieve those purposes by other means). We also take into account our other legal obligations to keep or securely dispose of personal information.

Generally speaking, we retain your initial enquiry information for a period of 1 year.
