We refer to this information as “order information”.
How do we use your personal information?
We use the order information to fulfil any orders placed through the site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and/or providing you with invoices or order confirmations).
Additionally, we use this 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 optimise 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).
Storing and sharing your personal Information
If you leave a comment, the comment and its meta data are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
We do not sell your information on to other parties but we may need to share some information to help us maintain the site and understand your shopping habits.
For example, we use WooCommerce to power our online store and also Ionos Cloud Web Hosting. Some information would need to be stored by these sites on databases to allow the site to work.
We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the site.
Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights.
