DO NOT TRACK
Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.
If you are a European resident, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.
Additionally, if you are a European resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts we might have with you (for example if you make an order through the Site), or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above.
When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.
Your privacy, like ours, is taken very seriously so we ensure that only the information that is required to run your or our account is stored. This will then only be used to inform you of your account information or in relation to items we have previously supplied.
In essence, we hold all personal data securely and we will only share data with our third party carriers to deliver the product and services to our customer, against the order placed by you. We have received updated privacy policies from our carriers and service providers to ensure that they too comply with the new legislation. We do not use personal data for any other purpose other than to fulfil our contract with you and we will only retain the information as long is legally required. We have made all our staff aware of the legislation and the need to protect personal data and all our systems are password protected so that no unauthorised personnel can access personal data.
For more information about our privacy practices, if you have questions, or if you would like to make a complaint, please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com
