At M&C Engineering we’re committed to putting you first, ensuring the personal information you provide to us is protected, and that we’re transparent about how we collect and what we do with it.
About the information we collect and how we collect it
We collect and process personal information from you in order to answer your enquiries and to ensure we provide content in the most effective manner for your preferences and for your devices. We also collect and process details of your visits to our website and the pages that you access.
The information you provide to us
Whether via our website, advertising, emails or in face to face meetings, at each stage, the information we request, such as your name, contact details and information relating to your specific enquiry, will be easy for you to see.
The personal information we collect is stored on our Content Management System (CMS), provided to us by a third party and on our Customer Relationship Management System (CRM), also provided to us by a third party. If you contact us and you give us permission to do so, we may keep a record of that correspondence, adding your information and enquiry details to our CRM. We may also use third party services to collect your information, for example for events bookings.
The information we collect about you is used solely for the purposes for which it was provided. We will use it for additional purposes only if we have received your prior consent to do so.
We may also use your information where we have identified that it will help us to pursue our legitimate interests in providing an improved service to you, only when this does not affect your fundamental rights and interests. We may also send you communications containing information about our services in cases where we have identified that you have a legitimate interest in receiving them.
Please do not divulge any sensitive information via our website. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. While we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to help us to prevent unauthorised access.

How we store your personal information
The information that we collect from you may be transferred to, stored and processed on a third party platform. This may result in your data being stored in a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). When selecting third party platforms, we always seek data processing agreements that are compliant with EU/EEA regulation.
Third party platforms used by M&C Engineering include:
Sharing your information
The information you provide may be shared with employees within our organisation so that we can deal with your enquiry or request. We will not share your information with any third parties other than when we are legally obliged to do so.
We also work with professional advisors who may need to provide us with assistance to answer your queries, and with service providers who help us provide our website and emails to you.
We will not share your information with any other third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so.
We will not sell your information to any third party, unless M&C Engineering is sold itself.
Your rights to control your information
