What personal information do we collect from you?

GD Rectifiers collects information in several ways:

Some personal information is gathered when you register. During the registration process we will ask you for details such as your name, telephone number, fax number, email address, company name, address, company’s area of business, your primary product interest and how you heard about GD Rectifiers.

We will collect financial, payment and purchased product information as part of the order process.

We may keep copies of information you submit when you send email feedback to the site, ask a technical question, or report a problem. If you contact GD Rectifiers, we may keep a record of that correspondence. GD Rectifiers may also occasionally ask users to complete surveys that we use to understand our customers’ needs and improve our service.

We may also record some details of how you use the site, such as adverts you click on, products you search for, products you purchase, and the information you download. If you accessed this site following a search on the internet, we may record the search you undertook and how it relates to your use of our site.

Please note that we may also record telephone calls for compliance, quality and staff training purposes.


How do we protect your personal data online?

GD Rectifiers always aim to deliver the highest level of service and security to our customers and our website has been specifically designed with your security in mind.

Our site uses up-to-date industry procedures to protect your personal information.

We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you via our site.


How do we use your information?

GD Rectifiers uses your information for the purposes of order fulfilment, direct marketing activities, helping suppliers to understand the businesses that use their products, for the administration of competitions you may enter and to provide you with customised and relevant information on the homepage when you visit our site.

GD Rectifiers conducts research on our users’ demographics, interests and behaviour. This enables us to better understand and serve our users and to review, develop and improve the products and services we offer.


GD Rectifiers Update Mailing Lists

GD Rectifiers holds a list of business contacts who are active in our industry and have purchased from us or expressed a serious interest in purchasing. The mailing list is used to update these representatives of existing and potential customers, as well as those who have voluntarily signed up for these mailings, on developments in the industry and the products we offer. All emails include an opportunity to unsubscribe from future mailings.


Your Rights

Individuals have the right to ask to view the information we hold about them, request the correction or deletion of data or ask us to stop the processing we undertake. As a point of principle, any such request will be considered and complied with where it is permitted by the legislation and not overridden by another consideration (such as the need to keep legally required records or the privacy of another individual). Requests should be directed to the email address below.


Website Privacy


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.


Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with 

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.


How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.


What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.


Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


What is a breach?

A breach takes place if someone’s personal data is either accidently or intentionally lost, stolen, disclosed, destroyed or altered when it shouldn’t be. It’s also a breach if someone can’t access their data over a period of time.


How do we minimise the risk of breaches?

Breaches can not only have an impact on the individuals concerned, but also affect the efficiency of the service and our reputation. GD Rectifiers has strict policies and procedures in place to manage, minimise and mitigate the impact of any breach as quickly and as efficiently as possible.


Will you know if a data breach relating to you has occurred?

We are only required to inform you of a breach when it is likely to result in a high risk to your rights and freedoms. In this event we will contact you without delay. Examples are:

  • Discrimination
  • Identity theft or fraud
  • Financial loss
  • Damage to reputation


Reporting to the Regulator (Information Commissioners Office – ICO)

In certain circumstances we are obliged to proactively report significant data breaches to the ICO within 72 hours.


What to do if you become aware of a breach

If you know or suspect that a breach has occurred, please without undue delay email marketing@gdrectifiers.co.uk with full details.
