  Vincent Timber Limited Marketing and Sales Data

We will only ever collect, process and store the essential information required for making contact with the data subjects within a business environment. The personal data we collect is limited to first name, last name, email address, contact telephone numbers and social profiles. Other business related data may also be processed including business name, job function, turnover and business address, however we will never collect further personal data such as those classed under 'Sensitive Personal Data'.
