We are committed to protecting your privacy and personal information.

Gilbert Curry Industrial Plastics Co Ltd trading as theplasticshop.co.uk will not knowingly pass on any details we hold on customers or web site visitors to any third parties unless expressly stated below. We protect the privacy of this personal information using our highly secure, password-protected servers.

We will take all reasonable care to ensure that any details that you submit to us are kept secure. The details that you submit to us will be kept to process orders only. You have the right to withhold personal information that is not needed for the transaction.

When processing an order, we require the details of the credit or debit card to be used in payment as well as both a delivery and billing address, e-mail address and contact number. All information is collected in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

We do not record or store credit or debit card details, nor share them with third party companies.

We also reserve the right to refuse the fulfilment of any order in the event of an unsatisfactory verification of your order. You can check the information that we hold by sending us an email and requesting it.

If you find any inaccuracies we will delete it or correct it promptly. The personal information that we hold will be held securely in accordance with our internal security policy. We do, however, reserve the right to pass on any details we hold to relevant authorities in the interests of preventing crime. You will be notified in the event of any information being transferred outside the European Economic area.

To ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent, we will validate name, address and other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting these terms and conditions you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information. You can rest assured that this is done only to confirm your identity, that a credit check is not performed and that your credit rating will be unaffected. All information provided by you will be treated securely and strictly in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

When you place an order with us, we will contact you within 7/10 working days to request a review of our service. This email will include an unsubscribe option, which if selected means you should not be contacted again.

We may also use the e-mail addresses submitted to us to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to our web site, new services and special offers we think you’ll find useful. Again, any emails sent to you will include an unsubscribe option, which if selected means you should not be contacted again.
