How we use data
To fulfil contractual requirements – Client data is used to prepare and send quotations, tenders, invoices and other documentation relating to projects undertaken by Synecore. It is shared with the project management team responsible for client liaison. When deemed necessary for quotations and deliveries, certain client information is shared with onsite operators, sub-contractors and suppliers.
The individual’s data will be used by the Synecore’s project management team for email and telephone communications before, during and after the project.
From time to time, the Synecore marketing department may wish to send clients relevant information or seasonal greetings, therefore the business email address and postal address will be added to a client database for marketing use. If the client does not feel the information they receive is relevant, they can unsubscribe using the link at the end of the email campaign or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and marketing emails will cease.
Data provided to Synecore is used for the Company’s sole use and will not be shared with third party partners.
Internal record keeping – data associated with a specific project will be kept on file for internal record keeping.
Website case studies, photography, testimonials and social media – When undertaking a project, we will ask for permission to take before and after photographs. The photographs will accompany a a comprehensive case study for our website and social media activity for Synecore. The information shared in the case study will include the reason for the project, the work undertaken, the client name, the end client name (if different) and the project location. We will also ask for a testimonial for the case study. If the client does not wish for their details to be added to our website and would prefer to be anonymous, we will respect their privacy. This will need to be stated at the time of agreeing to our terms and conditions.
Email marketing – Occasionally we will systematically send email marketing to data that is categorised by job title, business sector and region to ensure all marketing communication is only sent those with a legitimate interest in the topic.
Direct mail marketing – It is very rare that Synecore sends marketing information via a postal service. However, if an individual has expressed an interest in, or may benefit from our services due to a legitimate interest, we may send a leaflet in the post. The only other time that we may use data is to send seasonal greetings, such as a Christmas card of gift.
