Privacy Policy

It's Time To Get Clear About Personal Data, (GDPR)

Your personal data is unique to you and we've always been careful to protect your information. But it makes sense that you should have control over it too.

That's why a new law is coming on 25th May 2018 which will give you more clarity over how your personal information is managed. It's called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and it will replace the existing Data Protection Act.

The new rules mean we, like other business in the UK, will be making sure that we're even clearer about how we handle your data.

What do I need to Know?

We've created a new and clearer fair processing notice which explains how we use your personal information. Please read the summary we've included below. These changes will come into effect before 25th May 2018.

Fair Processing Notice Summary

Giving you a clear view on how we use your personal data and who we are.

Our Group of Companies trades as Armstrong Reiver LLP / Border Barrier Systems Ltd / Border Show Services Group Ltd. Our Fair Processing Notice explains your privacy rights and how we gather, use and share information about you. If you wanted to get in touch we can be reached by email at

You have the right to object to how we process your personal information. You also have the right to access, correct, sometimes delete and retract the personal information we use. In addition, you have a right to complain to us and to the data protection regulator. Find out the best way to get in touch with us at

In addition to the information you provide to us directly, we collect personal information in a number of ways, for example from third credit reference agencies and from looking at how you used other products and services we offer. Sometimes for your safety and for legal reasons we collect personal information by recording and monitoring calls and from CCTV. We also record calls for training and quality control.

We use your personal information including credit checks to provide you with products and services, to comply with the law and legal rights including debt recovery and to improve and market our products and services. Sometimes we use automated processes to make decisions about you and to profile you. Sometimes we need to use personal information such as medical details to make available products you have requested and to give you the best service.

We need some personal information before we can provide our products and services to you, for example to allow us to check your identity. In some cases, we won't be able to provide products and services to you if we don't have all the personal information we need.

We share personal information with our suppliers and other third parties where needed to provide you with the best products and service. We keep your personal information securely for as long as we need to for the purposes described above and below.

Where you have given us consent, you have the right to withdraw it at any time.

We want the best for our customers and sometimes we work with other companies to offer you the best products and services. With your consent, we or our partners will contact you to let you know about products or service from our partners where we think that will save money or make your life easier.

Use of personal information:

We will share information about you with other members of the Group. The following sections explain in more detail how and for what purposes the Group will use your personal information.

Personal information about you will not be collected by us unless you give us this voluntarily in order to process a specific request or unless you consent to the use of cookies. We will use that data only to fulfil that specific request or as specified in our cookie policy (see below for further information).

If you register for our internet banking services, any details you provide will be stored for use on future visits, as we do not want you to give us any information more than once. The details you give us may be combined with information about your use of the Site or any other website operated by or on behalf of the Group and information from other of our records in order to provide you with the online products and services you request. We will treat you as having consented to our using your personal data in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.

We currently may hold personal and financial information about you and may obtain or receive such information about you in the future. The information we process about you will be obtained from various sources including:

Directly from you;

  • From your dealings with any member of the Group including from the transactions and operation of your accounts and services;
  • From other organisations including credit reference and fraud prevention agencies.
  • From persons who know you are linked in the context of a particular product or service.

For our internal operational reasons, we may link information concerning your accounts with us to information concerning other products and services we provide to you. We may also link your information to that of other individuals with whom you are financially associated. Such information may also include sensitive personal data, such as information relating to your health, or criminal convictions or proceedings. However, we only hold or process such data where you have provided consent and we need the data for the purposes of the product or services we provide to you or it is in our normal course of business to do so; for example,

We will use your information:

  • To operate and administer the products and services we provide to you;
  • To assess the suitability of our products and services for you;
  • To analyse the operation of your account and services and your purchasing preferences;
  • To make credit decisions about you which may involve credit scoring;
  • To develop, improve and market our products and services generally;
  • For the prevention of fraud and money laundering;
  • For market and product analysis purposes; and
  • For debt recovery purposes.

We may also use your information for system testing purposes.

Where a third party has introduced your custom to the Group we may pass back to the introducer necessary information to enable administration of any payment or settlement.

In the provision to you of products and services involving insurance we are required to pass your details to insurers. Information you provide in connection with any claims made under the insurance may be recorded on to a register of claims through which insurers share information to prevent fraudulent claims. A list of participants and the register operator is available from the insurers.

We use a process known as credit scoring and may use other automated decision making processes to assist in the assessment of applications and to make other decisions during your relationship with us. We will tell you the reason for any decision that we make, if you request us to do so. You have the right to ask us to review such decisions manually.

Telephone calls to the numbers detailed on this Site may be recorded or monitored. This is for your security and with the aim of improving service and for staff training.
