The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons permitting a company such as Criterium Cycles to collect and process your personal data. These include:
If you sign up to receive our email newsletters and communications for example, then that is you giving us your consent to process your contact details for this purpose. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
If you order buy something from our shop in Edinburgh, we will usually need to take name and address details, primarily so that we can provide you with proof of purchase and warranty support.
Some of our customers acquire bikes through us using the Cycle to Work Scheme. We act as partners of a number of the leading Cycle to Work Scheme providers. We do need to keep some details of Cycle to Work scheme transactions in order to comply with our obligations to the scheme provider.
In certain circumstances we need to use your data in order to run our business. As a business we believe that we have a legitimate interest in doing this but that it does not significantly impact your rights or interests.
Sometimes, we are legally required to pass on information to appropriate agencies. For instance, we are allowed to pass on details of anyone suspected of being involved in criminal activity but we will only do this in compliance with the law.
