CHG Electrical Ltd Privacy Policy 


1. Introduction

As one of our customers, suppliers or someone else with whom we engage in business activities with, you understand and agree that we collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy (this “Policy”).

We use your personal information in order to fulfil our commitment to providing our products to you and with added services to improve your experience in connection with all of your interactions with CHG Electrical (the “Purpose”). As part of that undertaking, we are committed to safeguarding the privacy of the personal information that we gather.

2. The application of this policy

This policy applies to personal information regarding Companies, Suppliers and all other individuals with whom we engage in business activities with and to the use of that personal information in any form - whether oral, electronic or written.

This policy gives effect to our commitment to protect your personal information and has been adopted by all of the separate and distinct legal entities that manage, operate, franchise, license, own and/or provide services to the CHG Electrical Ltd.

Those entities include the separate and distinct legal entities which provide services to you under the CHG Electrical brand. References to “CHG Electrical Limited.”, “we” and “our” throughout this Policy, depending upon the context, collectively refer to those separate and distinct legal entities.

While this Policy is intended to describe the broadest range of our personal information processing activities globally, those processing activities may be more limited in some jurisdictions based on the restrictions of their laws. For example, the laws of a particular country may limit the types of personal information we can collect or the manner in which we process that personal information. In those instances, we adjust our internal policies and/or practices to reflect the requirements of local law.

3. Types of personal information we collect

The term “personal information” in this policy refers to information that does or is capable of identifying you as an individual. The types of personal information that we process (which may vary by jurisdiction based on applicable law) include:

• your name, gender, personal and work contact details, date and place of birth, image/photos, nationality;
• your bank account details, and your account details such as customer reference number or customer ID and credentials;
• information, feedback or content you provide regarding your marketing preferences, or to our websites or apps and those of third parties;
• information collected whilst you access a website (we describe this in more detail in Sections 6 and 7 below).

Much of the personal information we process is information that you or someone acting on your behalf knowingly provides to us. However, in other instances, we process personal information that we are able to infer about you based on other information you provide to us or during our interactions with you, or personal information about you that we receive from a third party. This Policy also applies to the personal information about you that we receive from a third party, unless specifically covered by such third party’s privacy policy.

There may be very rare instances in which the personal information that you provide to us or that we collect is considered Sensitive Personal Information under the privacy laws of some countries. Those laws define “Sensitive Personal Information” to mean personal information from which we can determine or infer an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs or other beliefs of a similar nature, membership in a trade union or professional association, physical or mental health or condition, medical treatment, genetic data, sexual life or judicial data (including information concerning the commission or alleged commission of a criminal offence). In some very rare instances, financial records may form part of Sensitive Personal Information where you are located. We only process Sensitive Personal Information in your jurisdiction if and to the extent permitted or required by applicable law.

When you agree to this policy you are, to the extent required under your local law, you are granting your express and written consent to the processing of any personal information that you provide to CHG Electrical Ltd. that is considered to be Sensitive Personal Information or financial information. Save to the extent required by law, you are not obliged to provide CHG Electrical Ltd with any of your Sensitive Personal Information, and should you chose not to, this will not prevent you from purchasing any products or services from CHG Electrical Ltd.
