This Privacy Policy explains how L R Harris & Son uses and protects any information that you give to us when you use this website.

L R Harris & Son is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website (such as submitting an enquiry form), you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. We never share your data with third parties except to help us deliver our own services.

We do not use cookies on our website – so no information is gathered in this way.

We also measure visitors to our website using SiteWit Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about what type of device was used. All that information is anonymous – so we don't get to see who you are; just that a visit was made to our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand for example, what parts of our website attracts the most visitors, how people arrive at our site (from Facebook, Google search, etc) and how long they stay. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

What we collect through contact forms you submit to us

We may collect the following information:

• name

• contact information including email address

• demographic & geographic information such as the region from which you are browsing our website, preferences and interests

• other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers (only if you subscribe)

Facebook, and other social networks

These services provide social profile integrations, buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” & “Follow” links

To do so, we embed code that they provide, and we do not control ourselves (apart from adapting to specify design or layout). To function, their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example, Facebook may use show a statement like “Be the first of your friends to like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website if you use their services.

What we do with the information we gather -

We may pass your details onto other companies/third parties for warranty purposes/ legal services or transfer of engine/boat ownership – these companies assure us that they are also GDPR compliant.
