Who We Are
At Blue Solution Services we value all our clients, longstanding and new. To build a professional relationship with you and be able to provide our services to the best of our ability, we will need to collect some personal information from you.
What Information Are We Collecting About You?
We will only collect personal information from you that you specifically provide and that is essential for us to provide the services you are requesting. We do not ask you to provide any more information than is reasonably necessary.
We may use it in order to:
· verify your identity for security purposes
· provide you with suggestions and advice on services
· check and confirm that we are able to provide our services to you (location etc)
· provide you with our services.
We do not generally disclose your personal information to third parties. However we may have to sometimes, for example, some of our clients may use a management company who hold keys and/or anything else to allow access to their property. We may deal with this third party rather than directly with the client, however this will always be agreed with the client prior. The type of personal information disclosed would be your address and perhaps a name and contact telephone number. We will inform you of our intention to disclose your personal information and you will have the opportunity to consent to that use or not.
There may be cases where the client and assigned member of staff have chosen to exchange personal information, ie contact numbers. An example of this would be where the member of staff may be running late, and the client would prefer they contact directly rather than calling the office for the office to then call the client. The member of staff will only hold the information required to do the job and they will protect that information to the best of their ability.
Below are some examples of when we might request your information and how we will use it.
