Who We Are
When someone visits our website; www.metrol.com we use a third party service called Google Analytics, to collect both information, and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out the number of visitors we receive to the site. This information is not used to identify anyone and there is no personally identifying information collected. We do not make, and do not give consent to Google to make, any attempt to identify those visiting our website.
Whilst at our site, address: Metrol Springs Limited, 5 Clayfield Close, Moulton Park Industrial Estate, Northampton, NN3 6QF, we offer visitors free guest wifi. When using this service we may collect data about:
- Your device
- The volume of your data you use
- The amount of time you are connected to our network
When signing up to receive our weekly updates, we will request your first and last name and your email address. We will use this information to send you these updates and occasionally to check with you if the information is still valid and correct. The information gathered (your first name, last name and email address) is not sold, rented or traded with other businesses or organisations.
To send our weekly updates we use a third party service provider called MailChimp. We gather information about who opens our emails, location by country of the person who opens the email, who clicks on which links within the emails, and how many times the emails are opened and clicked on. For information on MailChimp click here: https://mailchimp.com/

When you sign up for an account on our website, the data we request is stored for the purpose of allowing you to experience a faster checkout. We may use your name, email address and phone number if we need to get in touch with you regarding an order you have placed with us or your account. You can login into your account to change the information you have stored on our website or to close your account at any time.
If you decide not to set up an account, your data is still stored in the form of your customer order.
Regardless of whether an account has been set up by law we have to retain customer orders for 7 years. Every 2 years this order information is archived and moved to a secure location. After 5 years this information is then destroyed.
Account information is stored indefinitely until the account is closed.
If you make a purchase through our website, your payment will be processed through a payment gateway and as such any card data is processed off site by a secure payment service provider. The payment gateway we use is by SagePay, you can find more information here: https://www.sagepay.co.uk
