If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.

 

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

We may have to share your data with third parties, including third-party service providers and other entities in the group.

We require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

Why might you share my personal information with third parties?

We will share your personal information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.

Data security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Data retention

How long will you use my personal data for?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy which you can request from us by contacting us.

By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for seven years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

Data storage

Data is held in Smith’s Nurseries Limited using different (multiple) servers.

Your rights in connection with personal information

Under certain circumstances, you have legal rights under data protection law in relation to the personal data that we hold about you. These rights are:

  • To request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • To request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • To request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • To object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
  • To request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • To request the transfer of your personal information to another party. In this case, we can provide you, or a third party chosen by you, with your personal data in a machine-readable format. This right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the personal data to perform a contract with you.
  • Right to withdraw consent Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data you have the right to withdraw this. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of your rights, set out above, please contact smithsgardencentre.gdpr@outlook.com in writing.

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

Changes to this privacy notice

We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time, and we will provide you with a new privacy notice when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.

Awesome garden centre, not the cheapest but excellent quality and a huge array of plants. Staff can be a bit of a nightmare to find if you don't know what you're looking for or where to find it. The missus loves it at Christmas when it's all dressed up and put up.

I hadn't been here till recently, and I should have come here years ago! It has a fantastic range of products, through its higgledy piggledy greenhouses. They have garden ornaments, lots of plants, a big selection of garden buildings such as sheds and log cabins. I know that may seem fairly standard for a garden centre, but I think you'll be surprised at the size. The size of it is deceptive form the road, and it is totally worth a trip!
Luke Bryant

The best garden centre I've found locally. Great selection and mostly carries good stock levels. Unless you want mint.

It's a huge garden centre. Wonderful variety of plants and vegetation for your garden. There is parking on-site for plenty of cars. The Tree and Hedge company has a plot/office within the ground of the garden centre.

We actually visited to pick up a package from Cotton Traders located within the garden centres shop but decided to have a quick look around. There is a vast selection of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees at Smith's Garden centre and they seem to cater for any sized garden too. As we didn't buy anything, I haven't given 5 stars as I don't know what the prices are like. We would definitely visit again for something nice for the garden or even just something to do. It's well laid out. Some walk was are too small for wheelchair access bur it won't stop you seeing most of what they have to offer.

Superb garden centre. A quiet place to come and buy flowers, plants, bbq's, garden furniture, sheds and cabins or just a place to come and have a browse around and have a cup of tea with a bit of cake (I highly recommend the rhubarb cake - to die for!) and relax. They also have a Cotton Traders shop here which is very handy. All in all I have become a regular visitor and I highly recommend it.

A really lovely garden centre. With everything under one roof .. stunning plants shrubs flower pots and baskets. Pet care and petfood. Ornaments and fab gifts in abundance.

Was always big and now becoming huge. Not just garden supplies (which are increasingly hard to find), but clothes, furniture, fancy goods, fish, and a big coffee shop.Still a locally owned business, making a change from the big chain centres. Easy parking and friendly staff all the way up to owner/boss Norman.

Smiths is very local to me and one of the largest garden centres within a ten minute drive of my house and there are several to choose from. I can't say if it is the cheapest but there is plenty to look at including garden statues and some quirky garden ornaments. There is also a small restaurant on site which serves good food. Plenty of parking.
Stephen Hall

Single handily the best garden centre I've been to. Took up gardening as a hobby when me and the wife bought our first house locally to Smiths. First year wasted a fortune at Homebase then a was put onto Smiths by a mate who use to run it. It turns out the owner (tall guy who whistles - Jon Petitfer) likes to employ locals who all clearly enjoy working there. Probably the size of 3 footballs easy. Happily spend a fortune in there, support your local businesses.
Danny McEvoy
23:10 13 Jun 17
Good selection of plants of all types, very many ornaments and a stupendous selection of garden sheds/furniture! The staff are friendly too. In the back of the main shop there is Bertram's, serving a good selection of food but I particularly enjoy their breakfast; inside, outside under cover or alfresco.
Louis Gillain
11:07 01 May 17
Other garden centres and D.I.Y stores offer similar types of products that are sometimes a little cheaper. Smiths has far superior quality goods that are only marginally more expensive and in some cases cheaper. The main difference is the goods from Smiths will outlast cheaper rivals many times over. Knowledge of staff is excellent too, you try asking a wet behind the ears 16 year old assistant in B&Q what the best plant for a pot in a shady area would be and they would most likely not have a clue.
