Contact & Communication – updated to reflect GDPR
Lawful Basis for Processing Personal Data
For the purposes of The GDPR, we are the Data Processor when selling across all platforms, and process all personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner. Under Article 6 of The GDPR, the lawful basis on which we process personal data received from our customers is that of “Contract” - whereby processing is necessary in order to fulfil buyer orders and enquiries. We retain basic information provided by our customers, such as transaction information for internal financial accounting purposes. It is a legal requirement to retain this information for a period of 7 years.
Data We Receive: Personally Identifiable
We receive personally identifiable information from our customers only when it is voluntarily submitted by buyers when placing an order with us. The data we receive includes: name, billing address, delivery name, delivery address, e-mail address (in encrypted format), telephone number, date of order, items ordered, value of items ordered, chosen method of delivery. We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to any third party for any purpose.
How we use buyers’ personal information
We may use any personal buyer information to:
· process and dispatch buyers’ order/s
· carry out regulatory checks to meet our legal obligations
· prevent and detect crime
· develop and improve our products
· undertake anonymised statistical analysis (we won’t be able to identify individuals from this data)
We treat all information we hold about buyers as private and confidential. We will not reveal any personal details or details concerning buyers’ orders to anyone not connected with us, unless:
· a buyer asks us to reveal the information, or we have a buyer’s permission to do so
· we are required or permitted to do so by law
· it is required by law enforcement, fraud prevention or credit reference agencies
We will need to share buyer personal information with service providers and other contractors only to fulfil orders buyers placed with us. Examples of which are the Royal Mail, DPD Local and UPS, all of which have their own policies on data protection, and links to their policies are listed below.
We do not send out marketing information. Customer details are used only for the purposes of discussing orders, and never for any other purpose. Details are only stored for our customers who have repeat business with us; companies who order multiple ID Cards. Details are stored offline.
Data Subject Access Requests
Under the GDPR buyers are entitled to obtain from us (the Data Processor for the purposes of The GDPR) a copy of the data held concerning them and to have any inaccuracies in the data rectified. We are obliged to provide this data to within 1 calendar month of the request and free of charge.
