5. Who we will share your personal data with?

We will never sell your personal information.

We may disclose personal information to any member of our group of either Ashwood Timber Products Ltd or BuildersUK Ltd. This may be required for delivery purposes, or completion of a service requirement.

We may disclose and share personal information with law enforcement agencies if legally required to do so. This can be in order to protect your vital interests, or the vital interests of another person. This can also be when such disclosure is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure.

We may disclose and share personal information with our suppliers for specific purposes such as the delivery of a product (e.g. NAMGRASS).

We may disclose and share personal information with trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, and to offer products and services to you. When we disclose or share personal information for the reasons stated, it will only be what is reasonably necessary for the specific purposes.

Financial transactions made through our website are handled by our payment service providers, PayPal and Barclaycard EPDQ. Information is shared with our transaction services to ensure correct transaction processes, to enable refunds and to deal with queries regarding payments and refunds.
