We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. You can be assured that the information you supply will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement and we will not sell, distribute or share your personal information, unless required by law to do so. We comply with the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998, the EU e-Privacy Directive, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and the General Data Protection Regulation.
We collect information about you in order to process your order and to tailor your visit to our website to be as relevant to you as possible. That information will only be shared with other parties that are involved in the fulfilment of your order. We do not send random marketing emails to personal email addresses (spam).
- In particular we use your information for the following reasons:internal record keeping
- the sending of monthly newsletters and/or offers to you by email; you may unsubscribe to these at any time
- we may use the information to improve our services
- we may, from time to time, contact you by email for market research purposes, but only in relation to products on our website
We have SSL (or Secure Sockets Layer) throughout the whole site. This is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.
Look for the https in your browser address bar: we have our own SSL certification with Siteground, our website hosts. Once at checkout on this site (at the stage you enter your credit card details), all information sent is encrypted, protecting it from interception by unintended recipients. All transactions are secure, private and tamper proof. We do not store (or even see) your credit card details. The Online Consultation Form for Bespoke Products is also covered by SSL.
We will never collect sensitive information about you without your agreement. You have a right to ask for a copy of the information which we are holding on you. We will delete information or correct any inaccuracies at no charge as soon as you make the request.
Third party functions
Our site, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties, such as Facebook and Twitter. Disabling these cookies will likely break the functions offered by these third parties.
Ratings and Reviews
In February 2014, we introduced the SafeBuy Star Ratings and Reviews. Two weeks after you place your order, you will receive an invite to complete a two-minute survey. This is an independent survey from SafeBuy’s secure research site.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website.
Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question. This website uses etracker technology (www.etracker.com) to collect visitor behaviour data.
This data is collected anonymously to be used for marketing and optimisation purposes. All visitor data is saved using an anonymous user ID to aggregate a usage profile. Cookies may be used to collect and save this data, but the data is not personally identifiable. The data will not be used to identify a visitor personally and is not aggregated with any personal data. The collection and storage of data may be refused at any time with respect to subsequent services.
We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website. Google Analytics allows us to view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with our website so we can improve it. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors.
We use MailChimp for our monthly newsletters and any other direct marketing email campaigns. Our newsletter subscriber list is stored on a secure MailChimp server.
MailChimp will not, under any circumstances, sell this list, contact people on the list, market to people on the list or share the list with any other party, unless it is required by law. We include an Unsubscribe link on our newsletters, as required by law. To help collect email addresses for our newsletter, on 3 February 2015 we introduced a PayPal feature known as Instant Payment Notification, which sends messages about payments (and other transactional events) directly from PayPal to our website’s back-end system. We use this primarily to automate collection of buyers’ email addresses for MailChimp. Without this functionality, we would have to input the addresses manually.
When clicking the Facebook buttons, data is sent to Facebook.
We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page to ensure that you are happy with any changes. (Last updated on 15 May 2018.)
