Who we are

Our website address is: https://lintondmc.co.uk. See the “about us” information in each page of our website’s footer for detailed information.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


Although comments facility is disabled, it does apply for future time when we may decide to enable the facility.

As such, please note that, when visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS, or GeoTags) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

All media files in our website are owned and protected by Linton DMC’s copyright and intellectual property.


We may track website traffic data.

Who we share your data with

Where necessary, your details may need to be shared with one of our third-party suppliers providing a third party service or indirect delivery.

Where possible, we aim to keep the relationship between our clients and suppliers anonymous, however for services such as delivery of an item we may need to pass on name and address details of an individual.

On these occasions, we will notify you of the third party that is involved and gain explicit consent before doing so.

Our suppliers may only use your data for the intended purpose and we work closely with them to ensure that your data is protected, although we cannot guarantee how third party handles their data, but third party would have regulated data handling practice in place as much as we do.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

As advised earlier, the facility is disabled, but if activated at a later time the following would apply: visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service and quarantined for approval.

How you can request access or corrections to your personal data

You have the right to request a copy of the personal data that we hold about you, and to correct it if it is incorrect or incomplete. This will be free of charge.

If you would like to access the information we hold about you, please contact us at hello@lintondmc.co.uk or write to us at 22b Wilson Street, Bonlea Trading Estate, Stockton-On-Tees, Thornaby, TS17 7AR.

How you can request withdrawal of your personal data

We will not actively engage in marketing communications at this time; if this is decided at a later stage, when receiving any marketing communications from us via email, click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link. This will automatically stop further emails from being sent to you.

Please contact us at hello@lintondmc.co.uk or write to us at 22b Wilson Street, Bonlea Trading Estate, Stockton-On-Tees, Thornaby, TS17 7AR.

How we protect your data

We apply careful consideration to how we store and protect data.

Your data is stored in our dedicated accounting software package stored locally on a company’s computer, in which we log your details, purchasing activity and notes from when any communication occurs with you. The computer and its system is password protected with a limited number of log-ins and users.

Our electronic communication systems such as emails and social media channels are password protected with a limited number of administrators.

We monitor our systems regularly and carry out updates and maintenance where required, in order to strengthen the security of our storage and processes.

When we collect your personal data, we will keep it for as long as we feel is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. This can be up to six years as it mandates the UK’s fiscal regulation. Currently, all communication is on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’ and we do not currently engage in marketing communications. This will change when we do.

What third parties we receive data from

In the case we receive third party data as part of a supply request/chain, data from third party will fall in the same handling premise for first party data as established in this privacy notice.

We do not currently engage with affiliate provision of data; should this change, we will update this section.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

We do not use automated profiling or other.

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

We are certified within the industry and follow the criteria of the same awarding bodies in order that we abide by regulation and eligibility of certification.
