Who is J. Shaw & Son?

J. Shaw & Son (whose address is Buxton House, Yarburgh Road, Alvingham, Near Louth. Lincolnshire. LN110QG) provides a wholesale and retail fruit and vegetable service.

What personal information do we collect about you?

We only collect basic personal data about wholesale customers including name, phone number, address and sometimes where requested we store email addresses where this is the preferred method of communication.
For retail customers we hold no personal data at all, however, if you would like to receive regular updates of our small family business and seasonal produce available you can choose to register for our mailing list on our website whereby you give us explicit consent to contact you via email.

What is the purpose of collecting the personal data as well as the legal basis for the processing?

We collect, store and handle the personal information of our wholesale customers for our legitimate interest in delivering fruit and vegetables to you.

By storing your phone number we are able to contact you if we have any queries relating to your order. We store your address so we know where to deliver the produce and where to send correspondence relating to your account with us.
For our retail customers we offer the opportunity to sign up to our mailing list to share updates about seasonal produce available and other news about our small family business.

We only collect customer data for this purpose and do not share it with any third parties. We believe in and carry out a policy of data minimisation. J. Shaw & Son holds no sensitive data on our customers (eg religious views, health history or criminal records).

What do we do with your data?

All the personal data that we handle is processed by our small team of staff in the UK. All our staff are aware, of our data protection policies.
Wholesale customer information can only be accessed in our private office and is held in a manual filing system. Where an email address is provided to us this is stored in our electronic address book in our mailing system which is password protected.

The retail customer mailing list is stored on and is password protected.

How long do we keep your data?

If a wholesale customer stops using our services, we remove that customer from our database after 6 months.
