We should be grateful if you would contact us first if you do have a complaint so that we can try to resolve it for you.
3. WHAT DATA DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
Personal data means any information capable of identifying an individual. It does not include anonymised data.
We may process certain types of personal data about you as follows:
Identity Data may include your first name, last name and title.

An example of this is where we review your usage data to work out the percentage of customers in specific postcodes who have fortnightly lawn cuts. If we link the aggregated data with your personal data so that you can be identified from it, then it is treated as personal data.
We do not collect any sensitive data about you. Sensitive data refers to data that includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, genetic and biometric data, criminal convictions and offences.
