Why and How We Collect Your Information
To provide you with our services we need to collect personal data for correspondence purposes and/or detailed service provision. We will ensure the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose, and does not pose an invasion of your privacy.
We will collect and use the following data:

Will Velocity Commerce Share my Personal Data with Anyone Else?
We may share your personal data with third-party service providers contracted to our company while working with you. These third parties are obligated to keep your information secure and only use it to carry out the service they provide you on our behalf.
They will dispose of your details in line with Velocity Commerce procedures when they do not need your data anymore to fulfil the service.
We will only pass your sensitive personal data onto a third-party service with your consent unless we are legally required to do otherwise.

Velocity Commerce will process (i.e. collect, store and use) the information you give us in compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will strive to keep your information accurate and up-to-date, and will not keep it for longer than required.
We need to retain data in accordance with the law – for example, information needed for income tax and audit purposes.
Specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices may govern how long particular types of personal data should be kept. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.
When Will Velocity Commerce Contact Me?
