Here at Doorstuff, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our business relationships from the visitors to our websites to our customers, suppliers, employees and anyone else whose data we may possess.  In particular, we want you to know that Doorstuff is not in the business of selling, leasing or trading contact or personal information lists with other organisations for any purpose.  But just in case you would like some more detailed information regarding Data Privacy (especially with relation to the new GDPR), in this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided lots of detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

Who may we collect data on?
We have categorised the types of ‘Data Subjects’ we collect data from. This will make it easier for you to identify what category(s) you would fall under and the types of data that may be held on you. The following is a list of ‘Data Subjects’ that we may process data on:

Consumer – Customers that would be considered B2C sales.

Client – Customers that would be considered B2B sales.

Contact – Often associated with a Client (in the B2B world) which, although not specifically the company in question, identifies individuals who might be used as contact points within that company and could be seen as individuals associated to a company.

Prospect – A potential customer qualified on the basis of their buying authority, financial capacity, and willingness to buy.

Website Visitor/Visitor – A visitor to any of our websites, whom accesses via any internet enabled device.

Types of data we collect
This section aims to outline the data we collect, how it may be used and how/when we destroy personal data records and when/how we may have obtained it.

Google Analytics
When someone visits and we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site or the times of day when visitors are browsing – this enables us to make decisions on how best to improve website functionality/efficiency and ultimately, the experience of the visitor. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone; aggregate statistical information is used in any decision making.

We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website(s). We do not have full control of the settings provided in the service, specific changes or exclusions can only be made via contact to Google Analytics.

Please find the privacy policy of Google here:

Contact Form Submissions From Our Website(s) and General Email Enquiries
If a visitor uses the ‘Contact Us’ process or sends us an Email Enquiry, personal data is supplied, usually:

a) your name (required on the contact form);
b) your email (required on the contact form);
c) your company (optional on the contact form); and
d) your message

This information is not stored within our website(s) database, the data submitted, is immediately sent to our Sales Team via email. That is the only record of this data and it is needed to enable us to respond to genuine enquiries made via our website(s). Our Emails are stored in-house and are protected under the measures and controls of our IT Infrastructure and internal policies, which is described further in this notice. We keep our contact form enquiry emails organised and protected by authorised access only, with the ability to retrieve or delete at any given time. Any further contact, would categorise the website visitor as another type of ‘Data Subject’, then falling under the relevant processes/measures applicable to that individual’s new ‘Data Subject’ type.

Basis for Processing Data
The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons for which a company may collect and process your personal data, including:

In specific situations, we can process and store your data with your consent.
For example, when you sign up (Opt-In) to receive communications in relation to a specific service.  When requesting consent to keep or record your personal data, we’ll make clear to you which data is necessary in connection with a particular service.

Contractual obligations
In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligations.
For example, if you order an item from us for delivery, we’ll collect your shipping address details to deliver your purchase, and pass them to our courier(s).

Legal compliance
If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data.
For example, we can pass on details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity affecting our company to law enforcement.

Legitimate interest
In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.

For example, we will occasionally email you (via MailChimp) with our company newsletter containing our news, product announcements and community interest features, and we may use your purchase history to send you or make available personalised offers.  If you no longer want to receive these newsletters, then clicking 'unsubscribe' on the bottom of the newsletter or contacting our Data Protection Officer on with your request will permanently remove you from the list.  Consent for direct marketing will be requested, explicitly from all other forms of consent.

Security of Data
We know how much data security matters to all our customers.  With this in mind we will treat your data with the utmost care and take all appropriate steps to protect it.
We secure access to all our websites using ‘https’ over SSL technology.

Access to your personal data is password-protected, employees have user-access controls assigned to them and an ‘Internal Processor Agreement’ has been agreed to by all staff processing personal data, outlining their responsibility, expectation and any actions that may result from a breach. 

We regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.  We use Firewalls, Enterprise-Level Anti-Virus, Anti-Malware and Back-Up Utilities throughout the entire organisation.

Last, but certainly not least… PEOPLE!  We do our best in keeping staff trained and up to date on the most current forms of cyber-threats and regulation affecting the privacy/security of businesses/individuals and how to apply best-practice; continually making efforts to be more capable of scrutinizing dubious/harmful incoming communications throughout the organisation and developing a culture of ‘privacy by design’.

Data Retention
Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.  We identify what form the data is held, where it is located etc.

At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

If you would like more information about the retention periods for specific data types, please contact our Data Protection Officer on

Who do we share your data with?
We sometimes need to share your personal data with trusted third parties.

For example, our Website Development Company, Couriers Making Deliveries, IT Remote Backup Company, Auto-Mailing Company, Trustpilot, eBay and PayPal all provide services which enable us to do business.

Regarding Data Privacy under GDPR, we have been satisfied in the cooperation and information provided by our couriers relating to their GDPR compliance - which is the responsibility of each organisation.

Ebay and Paypal
We occasionally use eBay and PayPal to take orders for specific types.  The data processed is covered already under the Contact Details, Billing and Shipping Details and Addresses section.  Any orders that come via eBay, are paid via PayPal, only authorised members of the team access these accounts.  Orders are processed directly into our standard system and internal processes; eBay and PayPal merely provide the demand and means to take payment for these types of orders.  We do not hold or store any payment (credit/debit card) details, PayPal is the payment handler that securely processes payment information and is the only method we use to receive payments via eBay.  See below the links to the privacy policies for both organisations, we are satisfied with the compliance levels of these organisations:
