In order for our business to function effectively, we need to work with a number of external companies such as Royal Mail for postal deliveries, and Mailchimp and Zoho for electronic communications including sending out email communications to you.
Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including when given your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers, these are stored by our payment processor Stripe, via Shopify), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.” This information may be passed to our accountants if requested. If you complete your details during the checkout process but don't complete your purchase, you might receive a cart reminder email from us reminding you that you left something behind. In this email we ask if you experienced any problems during the checkout process so we can identify and rectify any issues on our site. If you call us to place an order over the phone, the ‘order information’ will still be processed via the site.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill any orders (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). When we post your order we usually place the invoice within the package, as such, if you use a different shipping address to your billing address the invoice will usually go to the shipping address (unless you specifically request that we don't place the invoice with the order; and while we will always try our best to accommodate requests, we can't make any guarantees).
Additionally, we use this Order Information to:
Communicate with you; Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
