We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office in the United Kingdom as a data controller (registration number Z8470104). We are committed to protecting individuals’ personal information which is disclosed to or collected by MSL.

What information does MSL collect and how do we collect it?

We may collect personal data about you when you contact us, using our website, social media platforms, or in writing to our postal address.

We also gather data about the use of our websites, or social media platforms, such as which pages are most visited (or of interest) or how many people are visiting or “liking” us on platforms such as Facebook. Some of this data takes the form of “cookies”. For more information about cookies in use on this website, please see below.

What does MSL use this information for?

We only use personal data where necessary, so while we may use personal data for any of the following reasons, it’s unlikely all of the below will be relevant for you.

Do you share my personal data with third parties?

We do not share your personal data with third parties.

There are circumstances where we may need to disclose your personal data to third parties where we are legally obliged to do so, or in order to apply or enforce our legal rights.

Storing your information

We are a UK-based company, and as such the vast majority of your personal data will be stored in the UK, in a secure physical or electronic form. However, we use third party service providers to provide email capabilities, host our social media presence and support our website. Therefore, we may need to use the services of a supplier outside the European Economic Area. Where this is the case, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with our data protection policy.

How long does MSL keep my data for?

We keep records for as long as required in accordance with legal requirements. Where your information is no longer required, we will dispose it in a secure manner.

How do I know what personal data MSL has about me?

Under data protection legislation, you can request a copy of personal information we hold about you at any time. If you find any inaccuracies, we are obliged to correct that. Please do remember though, that we are under an obligation to keep personal data secure, so please understand if we require reasonable proof of ID.

Please address any requests to: Data Protection, Magnetic Shields Ltd, Headcorn Road, Staplehurst, Kent, TN120DS.

We will respond as soon as we are able, and in any event within the statutory timescale set, but please do provide as much information as you can about why you think we hold your data so we can locate records quickly.

This policy only applies to websites owned or operated by Magnetic Shields Limited. When using social media, or third party websites (including those we provide links to in this website), you should familiarise yourself with those websites to see how they protect your personal data or use cookies. We cannot accept responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites.
