5.7 Right to data portability
If you would like us to move, copy or transfer the data that we hold about you to another organisation, please contact us at
Please be advised that this only applies to certain data which has been submitted by you electronically for specific purposes only.

5.8 Rights related to automated decision-making
In order that we can understand your interests and preferences - and deliver communications that will be most of interest to you, where you have consented to receive these - we employ profiling techniques (which include automated decision-making) based upon the information that you have provided to us, as well as your purchasing history and engagement with us. We do not believe that these processes have any potential to significantly or negatively affect you i.e. they will not lead to any form of discrimination against you or impact your legal rights.
Examples of how we use profiling are as follows:
• if you have only ever purchased consumable spare products from us, we are less likely to send you information about technical spare products;
• if you do not engage or interact with special offer emails that we send you (even though you will have consented to receive these), we are likely to send you fewer emails than customers who are more actively involved with us.
Where we hold a customer's details, we will also seek to ensure that, as far as possible, we maintain a single composite record of their interactions with us, which may require us to match their different activities. Where customers have indicated that they do not want us to use their data for receiving communications (other than those deemed legitimate), we will use this information purely for anonymised internal analytics and reporting, for example, looking at sales trends which does not identify individual customers.
If you do not want us to undertake profiling or matching, you may either:
• object to the processing of your data (see section 5.5 of this Privacy Statement above); or
• request that Quinnspares erases all personal data about you (see section 5.4 of this Privacy Statement above).
