  2. How we use that information; and
  3. The choices you have with regard to the use of your personal information.

Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We restrict access to personal information to Bleyer employees, suppliers and agents (for example refining companies for the purpose of sending the bars/coins direct to the client), secure storage facilities and consultants working directly for Bleyer, who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations at least equal to those we owe to you and such persons may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.  If you have any questions about security on our website or otherwise, please contact us.

 

Data Retention

We will retain your information in line with UK Data Protection Law. If you wish to cancel your account with us or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, please contact us.

Links to Other Websites

Access to Personally Identifiable Information

If your personally identifiable information changes, you may correct, update or amend it.  We will respond to your request generally within one business day. 

If you wish to verify the details you have submitted to Bleyer you may do so by contacting us via the e-mail address or address given below. Our security procedures mean that we may request proof of identity before we reveal information. This proof of identity will take the form of your e-mail address and password submitted upon registration. You must therefore keep this information safe as you will be responsible for any action which we take in response to a request from someone using your e-mail and password. We would strongly recommend that you do not use the browser's password memory function as that would permit other people using your terminal to access your personal information.

You have the right to access the information which Bleyer holds about you and your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. The first access request is free. Any further requests may be subject to a fee of £20.00 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.
