Privacy Policy

GDPR applies consistently across the EU. TonyG Ltd’s policies will need to continue to evolve to take account of any future guidelines issued, as well as developing our experience of applying the law in practice. We intend to keep guidance under review and update it in light of relevant developments and feedback.

The GDPR sets a high standard for consent and this means people must be offered genuine choice and control over how companies use their data. In line with GDPR, TonyG Ltd must seek consent from you freely for the personal data we hold and give you a clear explanation why we hold this data. The consent will now be on going and we are required by law to refresh consent periodically and keep records of the consent given.
