PSS International Removals recognise the need to handle all personal data responsibly, and we are committed to adhering to all current data protection regulations. This Privacy Statement sets out how we collect, process and use your personal data, and how we protect your data against a variety of risks, including loss, misuse, unauthorized access, and unauthorized disclosure.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
The type of personal data we will collect from you will include your name, address, contact details, enquiry details, identification data, and payment details.
When you first contact us, whether in person, by phone, email or via our website, we will collect only the data needed to process your enquiry. More sensitive information, such as your identification and payment details, will only be collected if you proceed with a booking for your removal.
Personal data will only be collected for the purpose identified within this statement, and we will not collect any data that is not relevant to this purpose.
CHOICE AND CONSENT
In providing us with your personal details so that we can provide you with a quotation, we have your implicit consent to process this information in order to handle your enquiry. You are able to withdraw your consent at any time, but please note that we may not be able to handle your request if you do so as processing your data is necessary for the provision of our services. If you withdraw your consent for marketing purposes, we will continue to process your data solely for the provision of quotations and removal services as necessary.
USING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The personal data we collect from you helps us to understand your removal requirements and ensures that we provide you with the correct quotation for your needs. Data collected is also used to fulfil your booking if you decide to proceed with us.
We may occasionally send you promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find useful in connection with your removal, using the email address you have provided.
PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
PSS hold personal information in both physical and electronic formats and have in place suitable physical, technological and managerial procedures to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, and to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Our Data Protection procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure that they remain up to date and compliant in the light of ever changing technological and legal frameworks.
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
There are times when we will need to share your data with third-party organisations in order to facilitate your removal, for example:
Shipping Lines, freight forwarders and other carriers;
Destination service partners
Government and other regulatory bodies
We will also comply with any relevant law enforcement requests.
If you have expressed interest in related services provided by our partners, we will share your information with them so that they can give you further details on these: in these circumstances, only the information needed to arrange contact and define the service required will be shared.
It may be necessary at times to share your data with a third-party organisation outside of the European area and therefore to countries who may not have the same levels of control as those within Europe. The information we share will be that which is required to provide a service you have requested and we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is protected, for example by using FIDI accredited agents whenever possible.
