At ACPM, we take YOUR privacy seriously.
Like all UK and EU companies, we are complying with The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to make sure your data is as safe as possible.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and your rights
As technology develops and our private data is being used and shared in countless new ways, people are understandably becoming increasingly worried about security.
There are two key reasons why the GDPR is being introduced:
- to bring all EU member states under one common regulation;
- and to update regulations to reflect our new digital age.
You have the right to object to how we process your personal information. You also have the right to access, correct, sometimes delete and restrict the personal information we use.
In addition, you have a right to complain to us and to the UK data protection regulator, The Information Commissioner’s Office at: www.ico.org.uk.
You can contact us via our website at: www.acpmaterials.com

We obtain personal information directly from you, for example, when you enter into a contract with us, make an enquiry or place an order etc.
6. How we use your personal information
To provide you with any products and services we need to know your contact details. We sometimes need to gather, use and share additional personal information for specific purposes.
For business customers, we will use personal information about key individuals in the business, so we can operate and administer the products and services which we provide to the business. To do this we will use:
(a) personal information about key individuals who are either a sole trader of the business or are a proprietor, director, company secretary, shareholder, partner, member, committee member, trustee, controller, beneficial owner or authorised signatory to the account of the business.
(b) We may hold personal information on key individuals for the purposes of operating and administering products and services which we provide to the business. Personal information on key individuals is obtained directly from the key individual; from the business to which the key individual is linked; or from the key individual's dealings with any member of ACPM.
7. Our legal basis for using your personal information
7.1 We only use your personal information where that is permitted by the laws that protect your privacy rights. We only use personal information where:
- we have your consent (if consent is needed);
- we need to use the information to comply with our legal obligations;
- we need to use the information to perform a contract with you;
- and/or it is fair to use the personal information either in our interests or someone else's interests, where there is no disadvantage to you – this can include where it is in our interests to contact you about products or services, market to you, or collaborate with others to improve our services.
8. Sharing your personal information with, or getting your personal information from, others
8.1 We will share personal information with others outside ACPM where we need to do that to make products and services available to you, market products and services to you, meet or enforce a legal obligation or where it is fair and reasonable for us to do so. We will only share your personal information to the extent needed for those purposes.
8.2 Who we share your personal information with depends on the products and services we provide to you and the purposes we use your personal information for. For most products and services we will share your personal information with our own service providers.
