Privacy and Cookies Policy

Beech Marketing values your privacy. It’s not like we’d look through your diary or go through your pants drawer, so rest assured your information is safe with us.

Became we watched the Wire and quite frankly the thought of going to jail scares the living shit out of us, we’ve put together this guide to how we process your information. Honestly, we’ve got to do it by law… the idea of staring at analytics and trying to find out any information about you sounds tedious we’d really rather be spending our time marketing biscuits or whatever job we’ve got on at the minute.

All of your personal information will be used in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. If you want to know what information we collect and hold about you, please email us at joe@beechmarketing.co.uk

 

Information Collection

If you send us any of your information to know more about our services, this ends up in our email and occasionally on a spreadsheet. We’ll most likely put any information right in the bin once we’re done with it unless you have a particularly hilarious name and then it’s going up on the office wall.

 

Use of your information

If you don’t want to hear from us ever again, that’s absolutely fine. Just tell us to “do one” and we’ll be out of your life like that ex of yours that used to listen to Evanescence unironically.

You can do this by emailing us at joe@beechmarketing.co.uk and we will get rid of any information we hold on you. Otherwise, we may hold onto your details for a bit and holla atcha’ about what we’re up to. During our dear time together we may hit you up to :

  • send details of our services

  • contact you in response to any general of specific enquiries made by you

  • send you information about any upcoming things that might be of interest to you

… and that’s pretty much it. Not like we’ll be sending you a picture of our bums or anything like that. If we do, that’s not really a GDPR matter as a whole other legal issue.

And I’m not even sure if unironically is a word, let me check that.

 

Disclosing your Information to Third Parties

Under no circumstances would we give your information to anyone else. Ever. Not even if they ask really nicely.
