Who we are

At Paladin Locksmiths, we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers and visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that we are not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.

  • to provide goods and services to you;
  • to enable us to manage customer service interactions with you; and
  • where we have a legal right or duty to use or disclose your information (for example in relation to an investigation by a public authority or in a legal dispute).

How we protect your data

All electronic data collected by us is maintained in dedicated software which is regularly updated and password protected. Passwords are changed frequently and all IT systems which access data run anti-virus software with up to date virus definitions. Any paper based records such as carbon copies of invoices are kept under lock and key in our business premises which are not open to the public.
