Personal information we collect#
We are not interested in collecting every personal detail about you. Our main reason for collecting your personal information is to provide and improve the service and experiences that you and our customers expect from us.
CPD Waste Water collects and processes a range of personal information about you. This includes:
Personal information is defined slightly differently across the world. To guarantee your privacy and the protection of your information, we define it as information that could be used to identify you or another individual.
We collect personal information about you in a number of different ways. In this section, we explain the different ways in which that information will be used. For more detail on how we use your personal information, please see the section titled " How do we use your personal information?"
Information you share with us
We collect personal information that you share with us when you contact us or interact with us through our, website, email, phone and in person.
For example, you will provide information to us when you contact our customer service team, request one of our services or update your preferences and account information.
Through these interactions you may share with us: Your name, address, email, contact number and payment information. In some circumstances, we will need that information to be able to provide you with the service you have asked for; for example, we need your payment information when you request a service, and your address to fulfil this for you.
Information from online interactions
We collect and store limited personal information and some anonymous, aggregate statistics from all visitors to our website, whether you actively provide us with that information or merely browse our website. The information we collect includes the browser software you use, your operating system, the date and time of access, the internet address of the website from which you link through to our website and information on how you use our website.
We use this information so that we can see how well our website is working, how they are used and what users look at most.
We also collect and handle information about how you engage with our promotional campaigns and advertise online, outside of our own website. (for example, Google and social media)
As a user of our services, we will send you communication by email. As long as you are happy for us to do so, we would also like to keep you posted on anything that's happening at CPD Waste Water LTD which we think you might like to know about; whether it's our latest product announcements, offers, we want to make sure you're happy with the communications you receive from us. You can find out how to update or change whether you would like to here from us, or stop us contacting you, in the section below titled 'How can you change the way we contact you?'
We love interacting with you on social media. You may use social media to contact us about your needs, or to let people know what you think about CPD Waste Water LTD. We review publicly available social media and online sites to get better understanding of what people are saying about us, and our services to assist consumers who prefer to contact us through social media
The information we collect from social media and online sites, including Facebook and Instagram sometimes includes personal information that has been put online and is publicly available. We make sure any information we use is made anonymous.
These online and social media sites typically have their own privacy policies explaining how they use and share your personal information. You should carefully review those privacy policies before you use these sites to make sure you are happy with how your personal information is being collected and shared.
How do we use your personal information
Our main reason for collecting and using your personal information is to provide and improve the services and experiences that you expect from us.
Information you share with us
We use the personal information you share with us in the following ways:
Information from your online interactions
We use personal information from your online interactions, by itself and in combination with other personal information that we collect about you to identify any part of our website that isn't working as well as it should be - so that we can fix things and make our website better for you and other users.
We also want to be able to monitor your use of our website and how you engage with our promotional campaigns and advertising online, so that we can:

What is our justification for handling your personal information in this way
Data protection and privacy laws in some countries require us to have what is called a "legal basis" or "lawful ground" for handling personal information. Broadly, that means that we have to have a legal justification for handling your personal information. For the most part, we need to handle your personal information to be able to:
Sometimes our use of your personal information is not strictly necessary for us to be able to provide you with our services, or for them to work properly. In those circumstances, we have called this "legitimate interest" in handling your personal information; our "legitimate interest" may be to:
There will be certain personal information that you share with us which we specify as being optional. We will explain how we use that information and if you choose to provide it to us, you are agreeing to our use of your information in that way. You can ask us to delete that information at any time by emailing email@example.com
Finally, in some, relatively limited circumstances we will need to handle your personal information in a certain way to be able to comply with our legal obligations; for example, if we are requested to disclose your personal information to regulatory bodies or law enforcement authorities.
Ultimately, the reason we handle your personal information in the way that we do is so that we can directly or indirectly, improve our services and your overall experience of CPD Waste Water LTD as a business. Whatever our justification for handling your personal information, we make sure that we take steps to honour our commitment to protect your privacy.

We love to keep you posted, whether it's on our latest service announcements or upcoming events.
