Legal Basis for collecting data
CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd will process Personal Data in accordance with all applicable laws and contractual obligations. CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd will not process personal data unless at least one of the following requirements are met:
Rights of Users
Right to be informed.
The privacy notice supplied to individuals in regard to the processing of their personal data will be written in clear, plain language which is concise, transparent and easily accessible.
Where data is obtained directly from the data subject, information regarding whether the provision of personal data is part of a statutory or contractual requirement and the details of the categories of personal data, as well as any possible consequences of failing to provide the personal data, will be provided. Where data is not obtained directly from that data subject, information regarding the source the personal data originates from and whether it came from publicly accessible sources, will be provided.
Right to access. Any Data Subject may contact CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd to confirm whether or not the Data Subject’s personal data is being processed. The categories of personal data processed will be clarified as well as the purposes for processing, the categories of recipients to whom personal data have been or will be disclosed and the envisaged storage period or criteria to determine that period. Where a request is manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive, a reasonable fee will be charged. All requests will be responded to without delay and at the latest, within one month of receipt.
Right to withdraw consent. Where consent is the basis for the processing of data the Data Subject may withdraw the consent at any time by contacting the DPO.
Right to rectification. Any Data Subject has the right to have inaccurate or incomplete personal data stored about them rectified. Requests for rectification will be responded to within one month; this will be extended by two months where the request is complex.
Right to object. In case processing is based on a legitimate interest to run, maintain and develop the business CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd, any Data Subject has the right to object at any time to processing of the Data Subject’s personal data unless for the provision of business or if CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd demonstrate other compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override the Data Subject’s interests, rights and freedoms, or for legal claims. Notwithstanding any consent granted beforehand for direct marketing purposes, any Data Subject has the right to prohibit CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd from using his/her personal data for direct marketing purposes, by contacting the DPO or by unsubscribing from direct marketing messages.
Right to restriction of processing. Individuals have the right to block or suppress CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd processing of personal data. The processing of personal data will be restricted:
Right to data portability. Any Data Subject has the right to receive Data Subject’s personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
Right to erasure. Data Subjects may request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing. This would include:
CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd may object to a request for erasure:
Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) and Data Protection Design
PIAs are compulsory under the GDPR. It is essentially a risk assessment of proposed processing of personal data that is likely to result in a high risk of the data subject’s rights. A PIA must be carried out prior to commencing that processing. It should be noted that if CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd comes to the attention of the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner, the PIA will be the first line of defence.
Conducting a PIA will improve awareness in CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd of the data protection risks associated with a project. Carrying out a PIA is good practice and a useful tool to help CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd as Data Controller to comply with protection law. This will help to improve the design of your project and enhance your communication about data privacy risks with relevant stakeholders. Some of the benefits of conducting a DPIA are as follows:
Data Protection by design means embedding data privacy features and data privacy enhancing technologies directly into the design of projects at an early stage. This will help to ensure better and more cost-effective protection for individual data privacy.
Data Protection Officer (DPO)
A DPO will be appointed to:
The DPO will report to the highest level of management at CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd. Sufficient resources will be provided to the DPO to enable them to meet their GDPR requirements.
Direct marketing can be described as the communication (by whatever means) of any advertising or marketing material which is directed at particular individuals. Consent is central to the rules on direct marketing and CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd will strive to obtain an individual’s consent before sending any marketing material. To be valid, consent must be knowingly and freely given, clear and specific. CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd will keep a clear record of what has been consented to, when are where this consent has been obtained so that compliance may be demonstrated in the event of a complaint.
The clearest way of obtaining consent is to invite the customer to tick an opt-in box confirming that they wish to receive marketing messages via specific channels. CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd will strive, in conjunction with their IT Support, to ensure that communication involves a positive action on the part of the individual to consent to direct marketing. There will be a clear and positive statement explaining that the action indicates consent to receive marketing messages from CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd. Best practice is to provide an unticked opt-in box and invite the person to confirm their agreement by ticking. CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd will ensure that the language used is clear and easy to understand.
The right to object to marketing is absolute and CMS Chemstore Engineering Ltd must stop processing for these purposes when someone objects. This is so for business to business marketing.

We firmly believe that every employee should feel safe in the workplace.
Every person who goes to work each day expects to complete their shift without succumbing to harm. At Chemstore we know in order for this to be possible in industrial environments, every employee should know exactly what hazards exist in their workplace and the knowledge to best manage these risks.
Our ultimate goal as an organisation is to eliminate the risks when storing and handling hazardous materials. Chemstore as a company wants all our valued clients to feel that you have created a safer workplace for your employees and instil a pride in your company that it is a safe place to work.
Chemstore cares more

BSIF approved for another year
This standard recognizes Chemstore as a BSIF Registered Safety Supplier which allows the company maintain or verify valid compliance certificates for all product and regulated equipment we offer.
The BSIF are becoming the hallmark within the industry. By visually displaying the BSIF shield illustrates our credibility, trustworthiness and expertise in safely supplying the appropriate PPE for our clients.
Being a member of the BSIF requires all products to be correctly tested and certified to meet the appropriate EU standards. This standard has become increasingly important due to the unfortunate increase in non-approved products being sold in the UK.
There are several items available that claim the CE accreditation when in actual fact have not been appropriately certified. In some cases, counterfeits of existing products have been an issue which has become more common.
To help combat this issue BSIF have created the Registered Safety Supplier Scheme in which companies displaying the logo have signed a legally binding agreement that the product supplied is of the BSIF standard and is appropriately CE marked.
This standard has given the customer an assurance that the product they have purchased is legitimate. In addition, the appropriate advice and guidance will be provided making sure the customer is not being mislead in anyway. It is crucial for the customer that the product being purchased is fit for purpose. Items have entered the market such as gloves and high visibility vests made from substandard materials. These products are so well finished that to the untrained eye it is nearly impossible to identify the real from the fake. Supplying counterfeit product is a serious felony as it can be the importance between life and death.
From an employer’s point of view, it is their responsibility to provide the correct product for their employees ensuring their health and safety while in the workplace. Being aware of these counterfeit items and staying away from products which seem too good to be true is a step in the right direction. Purchasing the right product is an important responsibility as ultimately failing to do so may result in serious injury or fatality.
Here in Chemstore we are constantly striving to enable our clients to eliminate the risks associated with hazardous materials, improving safety on your site. By continuing to be a registered safety supplier with BSIF we are backing that pledge by ensuring our equipment is certified and is of the highest quality.
