We collect necessary user data for anybody that completes one of our data collection forms such as member registration forms, the contact us form, the CPC Quote Tool, the CPC Sourcing Cloud Tool or the CPC Web Chat Tool. We shall only use this data in the following ways;
Our lawful basis for processing your general personal data stems from our legitimate interest in offering you our procurement services, where genuine needs for our services have been identified.
Processing your data is necessary because regular marketing contact with you is an effective way to determine whether you have a genuine need for our services and to agree a contact strategy with you that best suits your preferences and timescales, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights or freedoms.
CPC, in accordance with best practice, are committed to ensuring that your information is stored securely. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, CPC administer suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
If you sign up for our newsletter, which is administered through Mailchimp, or if you register for our site, we will store some of your information, including your email address, IP address and certain information about the links you click within the emails we send you, on a Mailchimp server.
Mailchimp will never contact you. Neither we nor Mailchimp will ever sell your email address. Neither will we share it with any other party, unless we are legally compelled to do so.
You are always free to unsubscribe from our newsletter, but as long as you are registered with CPC we may use Mailchimp to send you information about your account.
