To deal with enquiries or for a quote that you do not accept

If you call us or email us, we will follow up on your enquiry and see if there is a way in which we can help you. We may keep data after answering an enquiry if you do not choose to become a client unless you contact us to opt out.

We would like to send you information about our services and will send you this unless you choose to opt out.

If you buy from us or have a quote from us, we will send you information about similar services. Our processing in this case is without your consent but you can always opt out at any time.

If you do opt out of marketing, we will destroy your data so that you will not receive any further marketing communications.
