Data Protection and Privacy


The privacy and security of your personal data is very important to This Way Books (TWB)        . We want you to understand what we do with the personal data you supply to us and how you can control the ways that data is used.​

Your personal data

Your personal data is information which is about you, which may have been provided directly or indirectly with your consent.

If you have any questions on the use of your data, you can contact us by writing to This Way Books, 5 Parsons Gate, Castle Cary, Somerset BA7 7JS or by email thiswaybooks@btinternet.com

TWB manages personal data in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), effective from 25 May 2018.

When you contact us, visit us or use our services, we may collect your personal data to provide a service. The personal data we may use may include:​

Providing your personal data

When necessary, we will tell you about the choices you have about providing some personal data to us, including if we ask for your consent to use it. Where we don’t give you a choice and it is not optional, you must give us your personal data so we can manage the provision of a service on your behalf.​

Monitoring of communications

Following the rules set out in the relevant laws, we may monitor your calls, emails, social media messages, written communications and other communications you have with us. We’ll do this for regulatory compliance, self-regulatory practices, crime prevention and detection, to protect the security of our communications systems and procedures, to check for obscene or profane content, for quality control and staff training, and when we need to see a record of what’s been said.
