Disclosure to Third Parties and Transfer of Data

Albion may make certain personal information available to our GDPR compliant partners that work with us to provide products and services, or that help us market to customers. For example if a customer ordered from our webshop we will share their delivery information with the distributor and their courier. Personal data will not be shared with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

We store all customer data on secure GDPR compliant platforms hosted within the EU. In a very small number of cases, due to the products or services requested by a customer this data may be stored internationally. In such cases this data is governed under EU Model Contract Clauses.


Children & Education

We do not intentionally store any personal data of Children under the age of 16 and we will remove any data immediately if we become aware. We only store very limited personal data (e.g. a name) when parental consent has been given and even then, only use this data to undertake the service the parent has requested e.g. Collecting payments for a device as part of a parental contribution scheme at a school.
