YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Where customers use our web shop (operated via Shopify), they have the option to store their personal data by creating an account to make future purchases more efficient. We use this personal data to assist in order fulfilment. This information is exclusively used for fulfilling orders and is not used for other marketing purposes or given to third parties.
From time to time, we will record the products you are interested in and the history of your purchases. Your personal information will not be used for any purpose other than to inform you of offers and send you our newsletter, assuming you have actively chosen to subscribe to it and have explicitly agreed to receive marketing material.
You are entitled to access the personal information that we hold, ask for it, and/or ask us to permanently delete it in accordance with EU data protection regulations. Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may collect data from you in the following ways: when you sign up to our website, when you sign up to our newsletter, in emails or letters to us, when you enter our competitions, when you leave us feedback, when you visit us at one of our events.
Data we collect when you use our services may include transaction data, profile and usage data (i.e. data we collect from devices you use to connect to our services such as computers and mobile phones), data from third parties we work with: e.g. social networks such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, technical data: e.g. internet protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access our website. We recommend you visit third party websites individually for information on their privacy policies.
As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. As of the 25th of May 2018, all the data we hold will be GDPR compliant. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t event rent, sell, or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third-party provider, Mailchimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing us directly at email@example.com.
WORDPRESS & SHOPIFY
Shopify is necessary for user accounts on our web shop. It stores shipping & billing information to make repeat purchases easier. Customers using our web shop are not obliged to create an account and store their data but may instead check out as a guest. In the event users decide to create an account for the purpose of making repeat shopping easier, they will be asked to create a password. We do not hold information about users’ password. Users must keep their password confidential and must not disclose it or share it with anyone.
Conversion tracking helps us measure the effectiveness of our Facebook adverts by reporting on the actions people take after viewing the adverts. We create “pixels” that track conversions, add them to the pages of the website where conversions will happen, and then track these conversions back to the adverts running on Facebook. No personally identifying information is sent to us as a result of using these cookies or pixels. Facebook’s Data Policy can be found here. To opt out of re-marketing pixels/technologies, click here.
THIRD PARTY LINKS
Our website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins, applications (e.g. when you are signing up to our newsletter) and social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Clicking on those links may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control third-party sites, apps and social media platforms and we encourage you to read their privacy notices so that you understand how they process information about you. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice or policy of every website you visit
