GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) & PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation)

CES is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Please read this privacy policy carefully to understand how we collect data from you and how it is used by us.

We hold clients’, potential clients’ and suppliers’ data and the data of personnel within companies that have expressed an interest in or used CES’ services. We collect this data through business contact in quoting for, or completing a project, if a subject submits their data on our website, or if we have met in person and exchanged business contact details.

We hold only the data we require to contact our clients, potential clients or suppliers: name, company name & address, company email, main company telephone number and work mobile.

Contact data is stored on our business systems which are not connected to the internet, in email address books and on a secure server for email marketing purposes with Campaign Monitor.

We are committed to complying with the current data protection laws including GDPR & PECR, only processing that data for the purposes made clear below:

  • We will NEVER share with or sell your data to any 3rd parties
  • We will do our best to ensure your personal information is accurate and kept up-to-date. Please do contact us if you want to update your details
  • We will never disclose your details unless required to do so legitimately by law. For example, a request from the ICO
  • We will not send you marketing messages via cold calls, automated calls, texts or fax
  • Under PECR we might contact you by HTML email with news and updates, which we have identified as the most unobtrusive way to contact you. We will never contact you with marketing communications more than once a calendar month and only if:
  • we have a pre-existing professional, or personal relationship with you
  • we have a financial or contractual agreement with you
  • that we believe the information is of genuine and legitimate interest
  • we believe that the information is useful or relevant to your job role

If you do not find our marketing communications of use, or interest, you can easily choose to unsubscribe from our HTML emails at any time. We will NEVER contact you again using this method and will delete your data from our active email marketing lists. The ‘Unsubscribe’ link can be found in the footer area of our marketing emails.

If you require access or wish to update the data stored by CES please email and we will supply this free of charge if requested within one calendar month.

If you wish to delete your record from our marketing list, simply send an email request to

The internet isn’t always an inherently safe environment, but we will always work to ensure that all reasonable technical and organisational measures are in place to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful loss, alteration, unauthorised use, disclosure or access.

If there is a breach of the data we hold, which risks your rights or freedoms, we commit to reporting to the ICO and our contacts on the compromised lists within 72 hours of the breach.

We undertake regular data and process audits.

Any changes we make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our privacy policy.
