Saturn FE Limited is a company limited by shares, registered in Scotland as company number SC611526. Our registered office address is Stannergate House, 41 Dundee Road West, Broughty Ferry, Dundee, DD5 1NB.

Saturn FE Limited acts as a ‘controller’ of the personal data that you give to us. We are registered with the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office, registration number ZA778979.


Our customers are generally other companies. We collect names and contact details as necessary to serve those customers, and whenever someone submits the contact form on our website or sends us an email enquiry.

Also, we may collect the names and contact details of potential customers so that we can market our services directly to them.

We never sell personal data to anyone for any purpose. We will not give your data to others for their own use without your permission.


We do everything possible to minimise the amount of personal data we collect.

Personal data we always collect:

  • Names and contact details, such as telephone numbers and email addresses
  • Details about why you or your organisation are seeking our help

Personal data we sometimes collect, depending on the circumstances:

  • Information to enable us to undertake a credit or other financial checks on our customers (we will inform you before doing any credit check)


Most of the time, we collect personal data about you directly from you. Sometimes we get the information from others in your organisation. Occasionally, we collect information from third parties, including:

  • publicly accessible sources such as Companies House or Registers of Scotland; and
  • organisations you have previously dealt with.


Under the law, we must process your data lawfully, fairly, and transparently. Depending on our purposes for using data, we rely on one of four legal bases:

  • our legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of a third party;
  • to comply with the law; or
  • your consent

We hold personal data at our office in Scotland, and on Microsoft Sharepoint servers located in the UK.

We have appropriate security measures to protect your personal data against misuse. Only those with a genuine business need have access to your data, and all are under a legal duty of confidentiality.

Transferring your personal data out of the EEA

We store and process data only in the UK. However, sometimes we need to send personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA), such as:

  • if one of our service providers is located outside the EEA;
  • if you are located outside the EEA; or
  • if you have asked us to provide goods or services outwith the EEA

These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.

If we need to send data to a non-EEA country that the EC has not assessed as having adequate data protection laws, we will only send the data after agreeing with the recipient the standard data protection contract clauses approved by the European Commission. You can see a copy of these standard clauses on the EC website here:

If you would like further information about data transfers to other countries please contact us.


We will keep your personal data after we have finished supplying your organisation.

We will do so for one of these reasons:

  • to respond to any questions, complaints or claims made by our customers or on their behalf; and
  • to keep records required by law

When it is no longer necessary to retain your personal data, we will delete or irreversibly anonymise it.

If you have any questions in this regard, or any concerns about how long we keep your information for, please contact us using the details below.

You can object:

  • at any time to your personal data being processed for direct marketing;
  • in certain other situations to our continued processing of your personal data, such as where we carry out processing on the basis of our legitimate interests.

If we are relying on your consent (permission) to use your personal data, you can withdraw your consent any time. However, in some cases we may still process your personal data without your consent as required or permitted by law, for example to defend our legal rights or meet our regulatory obligations.

In some cases, if you object or withdraw your consent we can no longer provide you with goods or services. We will advise you where this would be the case.
