2. Collecting Personal Data
2.1 We will collect personal data of individuals who use the Site either automatically when you register and purchase products, or as otherwise provided by you to us. For example, we may collect your name, email address, telephone number and geographical address. All personal data that you provide to us must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to such personal data. You must not register or purchase products under someone else’s name. At our request, you shall promptly provide evidence of your identity.
2.2. When you use the Site, we automatically collect and store information about your device and your activities. This information could include, without limitation, (a) your computer or other device’s unique ID number; (b) your mobile device’s geographic location; (c) your IP address: (d) technical information about your device such as type of device, web browser or operating system; (e) your preferences and settings such as time zone and language; (f) how long you used the Site and which services and features you used.
3. Use of your personal data
3.3 When you register on the Site, you consent to receive email messages from us. You can choose to no longer receive emails from us by notifying us at email@example.com. We shall therefore retain your personal data in our records for marketing purposes until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive emails from us.
3.4 Some or all of your personal data may be stored or transferred outside of the European Economic Area (the EEA) for any reason, including for example, if our email server is located in a country outside the EEA. You are deemed to accept and agree to this by using the Site and submitting information to us. If we do store or transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the EEA and under the Data Protection Act 1998 as amended.
4.1 A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred (through your browser) from a website to the hard drive of your computer. The cookie identifies your browser but will not let a website know any personal information about you, such as your name and/or address. These files are then used by websites to identify when users revisit that website.
Session (Transient) cookies are erased when you close your browser, and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.
Persistent (Permanent/Stored) cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.
4.3 We also use Google Analytics to monitor how the Site is used. Google Analytics collects information anonymously and generates reports detailing information such as the number of visits to the Site, where visitors generally came from, how long they stayed on the Site, and which pages they visited. Google Analytics places several persistent cookies on your computer’s hard drive. These do not contain any personally identifiable information. If you do not agree to this you can disable persistent cookies in your browser. This will prevent Google Analytics from logging your visits.
5.1 We take appropriate technical and organisational measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorised access and disclosure. The technology that we use and the security policies which we have implemented are intended to safeguard your information from unauthorised access and improper use. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise that your personal information will always remain secure.
6. Your rights
6.1 You have the right to obtain from us a copy of the personal data that we hold for you, and to require us to correct errors in the personal data that we process for you if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You also have the right at any time to require that we delete your personal data. To exercise these rights, or any other rights you may have under applicable laws, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
