Under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) personal data is defined as:
“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

Who we are

When we do so, we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

How we use your information
We, McMurrays Haulage Limited, will collect and use your personal data for the delivery of transport and logistics services and to fulfil any contractual agreements between us or one of our partners using/providing our services. This information is used to process your orders, manage your account and to correspond with you in relation to your activities with us.

Why does McMurrays need to collect and store personal data?
In order for us to provide you with our transport/logistic services we need to collect personal data for the purpose of correspondence, delivery of services and billing.

Will McMurrays Haulage Limited share my personal data with anyone else?
We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to McMurrays Haulage Limited in the course of dealing with you.

Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.

Under what circumstances will McMurrays Haulage Limited contact me?
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.
