This is the privacy notice of Crowley Chemicals Ltd. In this document, “we”, “our”, or “us” refer to Crowley Chemicals Ltd. We are registered in Ireland.
Our registered office is at Unit 3 South Link Park, Ballycurreen, Cork.
This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all information that we record about you. It covers both information that could identify you and information that could not.
We are extremely concerned to protect your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of our web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party. Our policy is both specific and strict. It complies with Irish law, as well as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you think our policy falls short of your expectations or that we are failing to abide by our policy, do please tell us.
We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our web site immediately.
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site. We do not sell any data, for any reasons.
Under GDPR, you have a right to access your personal data held by the company and in certain circumstance, have this data permanently deleted. If at any point you would like to see a copy of this information, please contact us directly by emailing email@example.com. For further information, please see sections 16 & 17 of this policy.
Here is a list of the information we collect from you, either through our web site or because you give it to us in some other way, and why it is necessary to collect it:
1.BUSINESS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION
This includes basic identification and contact information, such as your name and contact details and also includes all information given to us in the course of your business and ours, such as information you give us in your capacity as our client. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. It is not used for any other purpose. We expect you to reciprocate this policy.
This information is used:
1.1.to provide you with the products which you request;
1.2.for verifying your identity for security purposes;
1.3.for marketing our services and products;
1.4.information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.
We keep information, which forms part of our business record for a minimum of seven years. That is because we may need it in some way to support a claim or defence in court. That is also the period within which our tax collecting authorities may demand to know it. Any data not required to be kept for a specific period by law shall be stored for no more than 24 months.
2.MARKET PLACE INFORMATION
When we obtain information from you specifically to enable you to buy a product offered on our web site by some other person, we assume that in giving us your information, you are also giving us permission to pass it to the relevant person.
3.YOUR DOMAIN NAME AND E-MAIL ADDRESS
This information is recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. We shall not under any circumstances, divulge your e-mail address to any person who is not an employee or contractor of ours and who does not need to know, either generally or specifically. This information is used:
3.1.to correspond with you or deal with you as you expect;
3.2.in a collective way not referable to any particular individual, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of our site;
3.3.to send you news about the services to which you have signed up;

4.WEBSITE USAGE INFORMATION
5.FINANCIAL INFORMATION RELATING TO YOUR CREDIT CARDS
This information is never taken by us either through our website or otherwise. At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website of Stripe. That page may be dressed in our “livery”, but it is not controlled by us. Our staff and contractors never have access to it. For purchases made through means other than our website, we do not store any credit card details past the point of transaction.
6.THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING
7.INFORMATION WE OBTAIN FROM THIRD PARTIES
Although we do not disclose your personal information to any third party (except as set out in this notice), we do receive data which is indirectly made up from your personal information, from software services such as Google Analytics and others. No such information is identifiable to you.
8.CONTENT YOU PROVIDE TO US WITH A VIEW TO BE USED BY THIRD PARTY
If you provide information to us with a view to it being read, copied, downloaded, or used by other people, we accept no responsibility for what that third party may do with it. It is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might see your information. If it is available to all the World, neither we nor you have no control whatever as to how it is used.

Cookies enable our web server to identify you to us, and to track your actions and the pages you visit while you use our website. The cookies we use may last for a single visit to our site (they are deleted from your computer when you close your browser), or may remain on your computer until you delete them or until a defined period of time has passed.

When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint. If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.
We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
We may use re-marketing from time to time. This involves Google or some other supplier placing a tag or marker on your website in order to be able to serve to you an advert for our products / services when you visit some other website.
This is information given to us by you in your capacity as an affiliate of us or a customer or client of ours. Such information is retained for business use only. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. It is not used for any other purpose. We expect any affiliate to agree to reciprocate this policy. As an exception to this, we have the right to disclose your first name and URL of your affiliate connection to other affiliates and to any other person or organisation, on and off site. The reason is solely to enable us to mention winners and others whose performance as an affiliate is in some way outstanding.

In order to ensure are customers are happy with the products they receive, we use the Trustpilot review service. When you buy a product from us you will be invited to leave a review on our Trustpilot page, the decision in whether you participate in this is totally yours. Trustpilot maintains a record of the email that is sent to you for a period of 30 days, after which it is automatically deleted along with your data from their servers in Irish-based secure data centres.
