WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR DATA?
If you have signed up for our e-newsletters, all we keep is your email address. Your data will only be used for receiving our regular newsletters and will not be shared with a third party although stored in our mailchimp account.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. These measures are being reviewed and updated regularly.
WHAT DO WE COLLECT AND HOW?
If you have opted in to receive our newsletter, we collect your email address and that is it. You will receive regular e-newsletters from this office and nothing more.
If you have purchased something from our online store, we will hold your name, address and email address for a maximum of 6 weeks on our secure office computer. After 6 weeks – by which time you will hopefully have received your order – we will delete your details.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP THIS INFORMATION?
Having opted in, we shall keep your email address until you tell us you wish to opt out. You may opt out at any time you wish, either by clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ button on the e-newsletter itself.
