GDPR update

Author Greg.Reygate Calendar 30 May 2018

We would like to inform our customers that The Hireman is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that come in to effect on 25th May 2018.

When you created an account with us you would have given us aspects of your personal data which we hold on our systems. We use the data you provided to process orders, respond to enquiries as well as for marketing purposes.

You can read our full privacy policy here –

Your Rights

You have the right to:

  • Request access to the personal data we hold about you (there may be a £10 administration fee per request)
  • Request the correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete
  • Request that we stop using your personal data for direct marketing
  • Change your mind and withdraw consent for us to use your personal data

In the event that The Hireman refuses your request under rights of access, we will provide you with a reason as to why, which you have the right to legally challenge.

In cases where we are processing your individual data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can request that we stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We must then do so unless we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.

Accessing Data

To access what personal data is held, identification will be required. The Hireman will accept the following forms of ID for access to your personal data: a copy of your driving licence, passport, birth certificate and a utility bill not older than three months. A minimum of one piece of photographic ID listed above and a supporting document is required. If The Hireman is dissatisfied with the quality, further information may be sought before personal data can be released.

All requests should be made to [email protected].
