Internal record keeping.
We do not share your information with any 3rd parties
We may use the information to improve our own products and services.
We may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, SMS or mail. We may use the information to customise the website or products according to your interests.

example, while you are living in a property owned by an organisation to whom Multibrand is contracted to provide service). This allows us to give you or our client historical information when requested.
When a contract comes to an end or you no longer want to be our customer, we remove and destroy all data relating to you. If you are an individual, private customer, you can request this at any time and your change in preference will be actioned within 30 days.
LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA
Where we hold personal data about you, this will be based on Article 6 of UK GDPR. We will hold your data under clause (b) Contractual Data. This covers both formal contracts with our Business-2-Business clients and work carried out for Private Customers on the basis that a contract is entered into at the point that service is requested, whether verbally or by other means.
Data will be held for the reasons of making appointments, checking appliance or repair history, administration of repairs/installations, invoicing and for reasons of providing a warranty on the work we carry out for you.
We will hold this data until you choose not to be a customer of Multibrand Services Limited and notify us in writing of this change of preference. Should you ask us to remove your details before the end of any warranty period, the remaining warranty will become invalid as we will have no details to hold the warranty against.
If your details have been passed to us from a third party for example a Housing Association, there may be additional constraints on what we hold and any retention periods as dictated by them.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures
to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. These procedures may be subject to change based on adhering to and reflecting current “Best Practise”.
