How we use your personal information

At 123Telecom, we take your privacy very seriously.


We will use your personal information only to administer your account and to help us provide you with the products and services that you have requested from us.

What information do we hold about you?

At 123Telecom, we maintain information about clients and prospective clients to enable us to provide an efficient service and ensure that any marketing is sent to only those who might be interested in the services that we offer. We also hold details relating to suppliers and potential suppliers for the purpose of doing business.

         Name, address, telephone, mobile, fax, e-mail address and website address;

         Details provided by you in course of your engagement with us

         Bank Account information in relation to the payment of your account by Direct Debit

Our GDPR information officer is Jeremy White.


He can be reached by email using info-[email protected]

The purposes for which we hold Call Recordings

We record telephone calls into our company for the purpose of training and monitoring purposes.


That is, in the event of any failure (or accusation of failure) relating to the product/service delivered, invoiced amount, configuration change requested or service termination request, we can double check that we performed correctly.


All inbound calls are Announced as being recorded. If you are not happy with being recorded, please hang up and email your query to [email protected] and explain that you have a problem with call recording.


Note that calls transferred to our Credit/Debit Card payments desk are NEVER recorded. Call recordings are normally held for 5 years.

Specific call recordings can normally be deleted earlier than 5 years with the agreement of both parties. Please email [email protected] with the time/date/phone number and the reason for your request.


The recording of outbound calls to “prospects” from our sales team are NOT recorded.


All other outbound calls are recorded without announcement. All customers have confirmed their consent to this in their service contracts.


The purposes for which we hold Call Logs

We keep a log of telephone calls made for the purpose of billing and service use evidence.


In some instances, we also keep a log of telephone calls received for the purpose of billing and evidence. Inbound call logs may, or may not, include the callers number.


Call Logs are typically kept for 7 years for compliance.


Call logs are not currently passed to any other party, although 123Telecom reserve the right to use an external billing bureau in the future.


Our call logs originate from our underlying suppliers such as Openreach, who also have a legal obligation to hold the data for 7 years.


In exceptional circumstances, the courts can uphold a request from the Police to disclose call records for the purpose of crime investigation. Under these circumstances we have a legal duty to comply without notice to the party involved.


The purposes for which we intend to process personal data

We intend to process personal data for the following purposes:


·         to enable us to supply/quote professional services to you as our client/potential client

·         to enable us to employee you or consider you for future employment

·         to fulfil our obligations under relevant laws in force if necessary

·         to contact you about other services we provide which may be of legitimate interest or if you have consented to us doing so


The legal bases for our intended processing of personal data

Our intended processing of personal data has the following legal bases:


·         at the time you instructed us to act or enquired about our company/services, you gave implicit consent to our processing your personal data for the purposes listed above

·         the processing is necessary for the performance of any contract with you

·         the processing is necessary for compliance with legal obligations to which we are subject


Where is your data stored?

We secure the personally identifiable information you provide on secure servers in the European Economic Area. We access this data in a controlled, secure environment. We have made best endeavours to ensure all data is protected from unauthorized access.


Payments by debit / credit card

Whilst you have the option to pay outstanding balance through your debit or credit card, we do not retain any of these card details on our computer systems. Instead, they are manually processed via a PCI compliant card machine adjacent to a telephone extension on our telephone system which NEVER records calls.


Marketing communications

In order to inform you of relevant industry updates, special offers or product announcements, we may occasionally send emails to our current customers and prospect business clients whose company uses services similar to those we supply, therefore meeting the GDPR “legitimate interest” category.


We never intentionally send email communications to private individuals/consumers.


We may also send you information on other services offered by us that may be of relevance to you, based on your previous engagement with us.


We may also send marketing communications to such individuals who have registered an interest in our

services by ‘opting-in’ to receive specific marketing communications from us.


How to unsubscribe from 123Telecom marketing communications

“Invoices”, “Statements”, “Notices” and anything related to the performance of your service.
