General Data Protection Regulation Policy


One of Guardian Goalposts Limited main goals is to maintain the highest level of security for its

customers and employees, especially when it comes to protection of personal data.

Guardian Goalposts wishes to inform existing and potential customers alike how we treat personal

data in a clear and understandable way.


Storage of Personal Data


Guardian Goalposts registers and stores personal data in the online shop in order to handle orders,

and requests from customers. The personal data is stored on secure servers located in the UK.

We save name, address, telephone number and e-mail address in our databases.

We save the customers’ invoices, credit notes and payment information in order to be able to offer

good customer service.


When paying by credit card, we co-operate with an authorized payment service company, who

controls the validity of the card directly with the bank. The payment service company treats the data

in compliance with international security standards issued by the card companies Visa and

MasterCard. The payment information is treated in a secure way and Guardian Goalposts has no

access to these.


Credit card information is only saved upon detailed authorization. The payment information is

securely stored with our payment service supplier, and not directly with Guardian Goalposts.
