Thank you for visiting Northern Print Solutions Limited.

Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy is where we explain to you what personal information is collected when you visit our site and purchase goods and services from us. This policy also explains how your personal information is collected, how we may use that information, where we store it, how long we store it for, and how we protect it. We will also explain your rights in relation to your personal information.

Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal information and how we may collect it and treat it.

For convenience, we have divided our data protection policies into three separate pages:

  • 1.Our Privacy Policy
    This policy explains generally how we collect, use, store, and protect your personal information.
  • 2.Our Cookie Policy
    Our Cookie Policy is available on request and explains more about how we may collect personal information about you via cookies (it also explains what cookies are).
  • 3.Our Retention Policy
    You can find out how long we may hold onto your personal information on request.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at or, if you prefer to call or write to us, then you can find our contact details at the bottom of this page.


We are Northern Print Solutions Limited. We are registered in England & Wales as a limited liability company. Our registered number is 07566452 and our registered office is at Kenmar House, Haggs Lane, Lamesley, NE11 0EY. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, it’s just easier if we refer to ourselves as “we”.


This Privacy Policy applies to our site, including our specialist business division Trade Print Solutions, and any goods and services that we may provide to you through our site or any of our businesses (we’ll just call these “our services” for short).

In the context of this Privacy Policy “personal information” means information which, on its own or in combination with other information, can be used to identify you, in particular by reference to an identifier such as your name, your address, or location data.

Provided that you consent to us collecting your personal information when you visit our site or purchase goods or services from us then this Privacy Policy will govern how we may use that personal information.

Because we are a business located in England & Wales the personal information that you give us or that we collect from you will be held under English data protection legislation (but we’ll just refer to this as “the legislation”).

The legislation requires that we tell you that we are a data controller for your personal information or, in other words, we determine the purposes for which and the manner in which any of your personal information are, or are to be, processed by us.


You can consent to us collecting your personal information in two (2) different ways, either through our site or when you purchase goods and services from us.

Our website

When you visit our site you should see a pop-up at the bottom of your screen directing you to this Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy.

By clicking or selecting the “I Agree” button that appears in the pop-up then you are demonstrating to us that you are freely giving us informed and specific consent for us to collect and process your personal information for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy and you are accepting and consenting to the practices described.

If you do not see a pop-up at the bottom of your screen then you may have already accepted our Privacy Policy and our Cookie Policy. You may also be using a pop-up blocker or similar tools that may prevent this policy from being brought to your attention. Please ensure that any pop-up blockers are disabled when you use our site. We cannot be held liable to you if you use pop-up blocks or similar tools that prevent us from complying with our obligations under the legislation.

There is still some information that we may automatically collect about you – this normally isn’t personal information but rather technical information sent by your device and used to connect your computer, tablet, or mobile device to the Internet, including your browser type and version, the time when you visit our site, your time zone setting, certain browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform. This type of information is sent by you to our site automatically and it isn’t something that we can prevent. We only use this information to administer our site including troubleshooting, load testing, traffic throughput, data analysis, performance testing, and for anonymised research and statistics purposes that we only use internally.
