- Internal record keeping.
- Facilitating an order placed.
- For legal reasons such as government returns (e.g. tax returns) and where requested to by a authorising body (e.g. the police)
We will not supply your personal information to any third party for the purpose of marketing.
Disclosing personal information
We may disclose your personal information to any of our employees or companies we use for the purposes set out in this policy. All of our staff have agreed to handle data in accordance with data protection laws.
We may disclose your personal information:
- If required to do so by law;
- In connection with any legal proceedings;
- When required to give delivery information to couriers.
How we protect and store personal information
We employ a variety of physical and technical measures to keep your data safe and to prevent unauthorised access to, or use or disclosure of your personal information.
Electronic data and databases are stored on secure computer systems and we control who has access to information (using both physical and electronic means). Our volunteers receive data protection training and we have a set of detailed data protection procedures which personnel are required to follow when handling personal data.
By placing an order, using our website or registering for our newsletter you will be submitting data to either Google, or WorldPay. See below for information about their data storage.
Some of our systems use Google products. As a US company, it may be that using their products result in personal data being transferred to or accessible from the US. However, we’ll allow this as we are certain personal data will still be adequately protected (as Google is certified under the USA’s Privacy Shield scheme, it is also ISO27001, 27017 and 27018 compliant which are internationally accepted security standards).
Our secure on-line payment facility is provided by WorldPay (www.worldpay.com). You will enter the secure payment gateway to handle all aspects of your payment transaction before entering your credit/debit card details.
WorldPay’s servers use SSL techniques to encrypt all card details in transit between your computer and the server. Thereafter card information is held only on their highly secure servers and we do not have nor need to have access to it.
We will only use and store information for so long as it is required for the purposes it was collected for. How long information will be stored for depends on the information in question and what it is being used for. For example, if you ask us not to send you marketing emails, we will stop storing your emails for marketing purposes.
We continually review what information we hold and delete what is no longer required.
Keeping you in control
We want to ensure you remain in control of your personal data. Part of this is making sure you understand your legal rights, which are as follows:
- The right to confirmation as to whether or not we have your personal data and, if we do, to obtain a copy of the personal information we hold (this is known as subject access request).
- The right to have your data erased (though this will not apply where it is necessary for us to continue to use the data for a lawful reason).
- The right to have inaccurate data rectified.
The right to object to your data being used for marketing and where technically feasible, you have the right to personal data you have provided to us which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or the performance of a contract. This information will be provided in a common electronic format. Please keep in mind that there are exceptions to the rights above and, though we will always try to respond to your satisfaction, there may be situations where we are unable to do so.
