Why we collect your data
We want to give you the best possible experience and the data we hold about you helps us personalise our recommendations for products, services and promotions to suit your business. It allows us to invite you for a sight or hearing test when it is due.
How we collect your data
We do this in a number of ways – for example when you share your information with us to make an appointment. We treat your data with the utmost care and take the appropriate steps to protect it.
When we’ll share your data
We’ll only share data with third parties to help us provide a better service for you. An example might be giving your address to a courier so they can deliver something you have requested. We never sell your personal data to third parties. In each instance the third party is fully GDPR compliant and is not permitted to use your personal data for their own purposes.
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our email marketing telling you about new products and services approximately once a month. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing steve AT acuitis.co.uk.
