We do not provide your personal information to external organisations (i.e. to merchants, distributors and retailers, which are outside of Kingspan) for their own direct marketing or other purposes without your explicit consent.
If at any time you do not want your information used for direct marketing purposes by a Kingspan company, please contact the relevant Kingspan company from which you have received marketing so that they can unsubscribe you from their marketing lists. If you have received email marketing from a Kingspan company and decide that you no longer wish to receive marketing emails from them, you will usually also be able to opt out of receiving further email marketing from them by following an unsubscribe link in the email, or by such other means as we may communicate to you. Please note that as we do not as a group operate a global marketing database which means we are unable to unsubscribe you from marketing from all Kingspan companies centrally.

Please bear in mind that the countries to which your personal data is sent/accessed from may have a different standard of data protection than the country in which you are situated. However, we have put in place protections to ensure that your information is safeguarded.
Where organisations outside of Kingspan provide you with a service on our behalf (e.g. sending you a piece of literature that you have requested from us), we may share your personal information with those organisations who will only use the information to provide the relevant service. However, we will retain control of your personal information and any third party service provider that we use must act in accordance with our instructions. We may also share your personal information with a purchaser or potential purchaser of our business.
In some circumstances, we may have to disclose your personal information by law, because a court or the police or other law enforcement agency has asked us for it.
