Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable living person. Daylight processes personal data for various purposes, the means of collection and use for each purpose may differ.
When collecting and using personal data, our policy is to be transparent about why and how we process personal data.
This privacy statement applies to personal data that we collect, use and otherwise process regarding your relationship with us as an individual customer, or a trade customer, including when you purchase directly from our websites, or contact our customer service.
Collection of personal data
We only collect the personal data necessary for agreed purposes. Where we need to process personal data to provide our services we ask our customers to provide the necessary information for that purpose.
Use of personal data
We use personal data for the following purposes:
- Processing orders
When ordering online from the daylightcompany.co.uk, we collect your full name, email address, mailing address, telephone number and your credit card information.
This is used to complete your order and to keep you updated on the status of your order.
Provided you have subscribed to the Daylight newsletter, we use customer contact details to provide information that we think will be of interest about us and our products. For examples, invitations to exhibitions, product launches, educational material about our products and the technology that we use.
The Daylight Company will not trade, sell or rent your personal information (such as name, address, phone number, or company name) to third parties without your consent.

Daylight processes personal data about business contacts (existing and potential Daylight customers and/or individuals associated with them) using a customer relationship management system (File Maker).
The collection of personal data about contacts and the addition of that personal data to Daylight File Maker is initiated by a Daylight user and will include full name, employer name, job title, phone, email and other business contact details. We will also record the date and where contact was initiated, for example: we will record whether initial contact was made at an exhibition, by phone or a face to face meeting.

Personal data relating to business contacts may be visible to and used by Daylight employees to learn more about an account, client or opportunity they have an interest in, and may be used for the following purposes:
- Administering, managing and developing our business relationships

- Making contact information available to Daylight employees
- Identifying clients/contacts with similar needs
- Describing the nature of a contact’s relationship with Daylight
- Performing analytics, including producing metrics for Daylight, such as trends, relationship maps, sales intelligence and progress against account business goals
Daylight does not sell or otherwise release personal data contained in Daylight File Maker to third parties for allowing them to market their products and services without consent from individuals to do so.
Personal data will be retained on Daylight File Maker for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out above (e.g. for as long as we have, or need to keep a record of, a relationship with a business contact).

We collect personal data when an individual gets in touch with us with a question, complaint, comment or feedback (such as name, contact details and contents of the communication).

Online shopping security
Daylight uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for mutual authentication, data encryption and data integrity- all to ensure secure transactions for our customers. SSL is the industry standard security protocol to encode sensitive information, such as your credit card number. SSL creates a shared digital key which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone else, even the servers relaying the message, the SSL transmission is indecipherable.
We also protect your privacy by limiting employee access to and use of customer data. While we may provide statistics to outside companies about our customers, including sales and related site information, it will not include any personally identifying information.
