GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS AND PRIVACY STATEMENT


PRIVACY STATEMENT VERSION 2018

Our Privacy Policy is to respect and protect the privacy of visitors to our website. This policy statement provides you with how we collect information from you and how that we use it. It will assist you in making informed decisions when using our website as well as our services.

DISCLOSURE

We will not publish, provide, sell or rent any of your information to anyone, ever. However, we reserve the right to disclose user information in cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Our rights or our property, other people, or anyone who could be harmed by your activities. We also reserve the right to disclose your information when we believe that the law requires it.

SECURITY

Protecting the security of all personally-identifiable information associated with our visitors is of the utmost concern to us. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take all reasonable steps to ensure the security of our users' personal information and maintain their privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of such personal information.

LINKS TO OTHER SITES / "PUBLIC" AREAS

You should be aware that when you are on our web site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from our web site pages that take you outside our service. These other sites may or probably will send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit your personal information. The privacy policies of these other sites will significantly differ from that of our own. We are therefore not responsible for the privacy practices of any other websites and also cannot guarantee the security of any of your personal information collected there.

PRIVACY POLICY FOR MINORS

We do not knowingly collect information from minors. If you are under 18, please do not provide any personal information to us.

ACCESS TO YOUR OWN DATA

To be provided with a copy of your own personal data that we collect online and maintain in our database, and to contest and correct inaccuracies, or request that your personal data be deleted, please send an email and we will respond quickly. To unsubscribe from future mailouts, simply send us an email with "unsubscribe" as the subject, or use the unsubscribe link in each mailout, and we will take you off the list.

The terms of this Privacy Policy may change from time to time without prior notice to you, so please check this page periodically for any changes.

FAQ'S

WHY ARE WE UPDATING OUR PRIVACY STATEMENT?

As you may be aware, a new piece of legislation has been enforced by the European Union called The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and we have updated our privacy statement to reflect that.

WHAT IS THE GDPR?

The GDPR is a regulation intended to strengthen data protection for everyone within the European Union (EU). The GDPR requires greater transparency from companies on how they collect, store and use personal data, while also imposing tighter limits on the use of personal data and ensuring clarity on when consent should be given.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU?

We collect your name, phone number, email address, delivery address, payment information, location data, IP address, social identifiers, data provided by cookies and other similar technologies, functional data such as registration and system data, as well as additional usage data, for instance, performance and activity information. Some of these may not apply to you as it is dependent on the pages you visit and your actions whilst there.

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR INFORMATION?

We use data to communicate with you, for example, informing you about your account, new products or services available, security and other types of updates.

HOW IS YOUR INFORMATION USED?

We use data for the following purposes:

  • Customer Support
  • Security, Safety, and Dispute Resolution

DO WE KEEP OR SHARE YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION?

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?

We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide Services, support your Product and fulfil transactions you have requested, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, and resolving disputes and enforcing our agreements. Because these needs can vary for different data types, actual retention periods can vary significantly.

HOW IS INFORMATION STORED AND SECURED ON OUR SERVERS?

We are committed to protecting the security of your personal data. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. For example, we store personal data you provide on systems that have limited access and in controlled facilities.
