Legal stuff & privacy

Legal and privacy information

Our legal, data and privacy policies explain how we collect, use and share customer and website users’ personal information, and the controls we have over their information and data.

We know that for many people it isn’t the most exciting part of our website. But it’s an important element of the proper, honest and transparent way we conduct ourselves and do business.

BTW – every website/business that collects personal information (including people’s names, home/email addresses and phone numbers etc. through contact forms or digitally via email, text, WhatsApp or other messenger must have a legal, data and privacy policy.

If they don’t have these, it’s simple – they’re breaking the law. 

And do you really want to use a business where there’s even a hint of untrustworthiness? 

Especially one that you invite into your home and could potentially cause large scale and expensive damage?

Below, you’ll find all of the legal, data and privacy information you’ll need. And of course if you’d like to know about our rates, guarantees or insurance etc. our FAQ page is the place to go.
