We take your data and your privacy seriously. Accordingly, we comply with all aspects of the GDPR.
When you make a purchase from us personally identifiable information may include one or more of the following:
- Email Address
- IP Number
We do not use your information to market to you after your purchase in any way.
Typically your contact information is saved securely electronically in our office. We can delete this data at your request – however this also means that we will no longer have a copy of your purchase details and so we will not be able to provide any assistance relating to it.
Your rights under the GDPR include:
Right of access: data subjects have the right to access their personal data and to know how it is being processed.
Right to be forgotten: this policy allows EU data subjects to request to have all their data deleted from our server or transferred to another company.
Breach of personal data: our company must notify the Supervisory Authority within 72 hours unless the breach is harmless and poses no risk to the individual. If a breach is concluded to be high risk, our company must inform the individual as well.
To request information related to the foregoing, you can contact us by going to our “Contact” page. We will respond within 24 hours.
