Where Customer consent for data processing is withdrawn we will ensure that any personal data is destroyed.
Where data is held in a paper format, destruction means that the data will be shredded or sent to confidential waste for destruction.
Where data is held in an electronic format, destruction means that the data is put permanently beyond use.
Where data is held by third parties, we will rely on confirmation from them that data has been properly destroyed.


People are entitled to be told what information we hold about them and to be given a copy of that information.
On request, we will also inform people:
The purpose for which we process their data
• What type of information we hold about them
• If we have not collected the information from the person themselves, where the information we hold comes from
• To whom we have disclosed it or intend to disclose it

- the right to be forgotten in certain circumstances (also known as the right to erasure)

We will provide this information to people within one month of receiving their request. Where the person makes an electronic request (for example, by email), we will provide the information in an electronic form (unless the person requests otherwise).


All agreements that we have with another party who handles customer data on our behalf will require that party to keep the data securely in accordance with specific GDPR requirements.
When we transfer data to another party, we will ensure that the transfer is made in a manner that keeps the data secure in accordance with the GDPR.
We will never give or sell customer data to any other companies.


Where there is a breach of security leading to the destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data (a breach), we will consider as soon as possible what action we need to take.
As a first step, the Compliance Officer must be notified immediately.
As soon as possible when becoming aware of a breach we will consider what we can do to put it right and the likely impact it will have on any customer whose data was involved. We will work with service providers where relevant to gather as much information as possible in order to understand the extent of the breach and the steps needed to contain and mitigate the effects of the breach.
Our other third parties who handle personal data on our behalf are required to notify us as soon as they become aware of a breach and we take all reasonable steps to ensure that they are aware of this requirement. 


All complaints received to be logged and analysed for possible trends.

Non Conforming Products:


Non Conforming product must be handled in a planned manner.


Proprietor / General Manager


Non Conforming product means material or product that is or could be outside set targets and tolerances either legislative, safety or quality. If non conforming product does occur then it must be handled in the appropriate fashion. Depending on the category of the deviation from specification different options will exist but non conforming product must be physically separated from the "in specification" products and be clearly labelled as such. Products deemed to be non conforming must get re-processed or disposed of as required. Consultation with the intended customer and the management contact at J. Coleman Wholesale Butchers. will take place if significant quantities are involved.


This policy is also reflected in our HOME DELIVERY SERVICE, where you can purchase goods from our online store, delivered straight to your door.
