What is our legal basis for processing your personal data?

Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect personal information from you only (i) where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms, or (iii) where we have your consent to do so. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).

Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

Personal Data for Marketing

We may occasionally send you marketing materials in the form of email communication. The legal basis for this data processing is covered under legitimate interest. We believe that as you have either enquired about or used our services in the past or at present, you will be interested in these communications. You can unsubscribe at any time through the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the footer of the emails or by emailing to sales [AT]


Data security is of great importance to Thermovac Plastics and to protect your Data we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure Data collected online.

Specifically we utilise the following systems: remote data backup, anti-virus, cyber security software and appropriate user access levels. Any physical copies of personal data that we hold are kept securely in lockable cabinets.

Sharing your personal data

Your personal data will be treated as strictly confidential, and will be shared only with following categories of recipients:

  • our third-party service providers and business partners who provide services to us, or who otherwise process personal information for purposes that are described in this Privacy Policy or notified to you when we collect your personal information. Examples of the kind of third parties we work with are:
    • IT companies who support our Websites, Apps and other business systems;
    • Operational companies such as delivery couriers;
    • Accountants;
    • Data insight and data analysis companies (to provide us with tools to analyse the data which we hold);
    • to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights or apply our Terms and Conditions, or (iii) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;

Where we share your personal information with third party service providers and partners we apply a policy to ensure your personal information is safe and in order to protect your privacy. Our policy requires:

We provide only the information they need to perform their specific services.

They may only use your data for the purposes we specify in our contract with them.

We work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected at all times.

If we stop using their services, any of your personal information held by them will either be deleted or rendered anonymous (subject to applicable law).

How long do we keep your personal data?

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. For more information about the specific periods for which we retain your data, please contact us using the contact details provided.

Providing us with your personal data
