GDPR Statement: The HappyMacs ethos is that your personal data is of paramount importance. For this reason HappyMacs do not hold any personal data longer than is necessary. By this we mean we only use your name, address, email address, phone number and home or business address while the HappyMacs team perform authorised work for you and for contact purposes only during that time. We do not use any of this data for marketing purposes, mail shots or cold-calling as our only form of marketing is our website and/or word of mouth repeat business. HappyMacs do not record or store any special categories of personal data whatsoever. Please contact our team if you wish to discuss any aspect of GDPR and have any questions on data protection. We are always happy to discuss this subject with you.
