When you shop online at Beauty Shop UK, we collect your information. It happens everywhere online, but we don’t want to send you things you won’t be interested in. It’s not good for you or for us. We want to know what you actually want to see, so we collect this information to try and understand you better. It means we won’t send you anything irrelevant, and if there is a problem with your order, we can deal with it quickly.
We want to be transparent about the information we store. We believe it’s best to be honest. Always.If you still have any questions for us, just get in touch:email@example.com
HOW WE GET TO KNOW YOU
The products that you choose all tell stories. All these stories help us get to know you better, and occasionally we might use information from third parties who you have also shopped with. This is all so we can better understand what you like and what you like to do, so that we’re only showing you the most relevant products.
INFORMATION THAT WE NEED
We’ll need your name and address. Our customers are part of our community, more than names on a sheet. We also use these to verify your payments, to make sure everything is above board.
Your email is another thing. We’ll use this to send you confirmation of your orders, along with any news from our beauty and skincare community. Not seeing anything useful? You can always unsubscribe by clicking the link in the email or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll also need your payment card details. We’ll ask for them when you place an order, and we’ll also need to know that you’re over 18. That’s when you’re legally allowed to enter into a contract with us and buy our products with your own money.
Not everything we ask for is mandatory. But it does help us to understand you better. Your phone number can help us if a delivery driver is finding it hard to track down your address.
HOW WE PROCESS AND USE YOUR INFORMATION
As part of our community you matter to us. We want to take care of you, because then, you’ll take care of us. Whenever you buy something or shop somewhere, you’re entering into a contract. We’re no different. But it’s nothing to be worried about. We also need it to check it’s really you. So, we use this information to verify you’re a genuine customer, not someone with mischief in mind.
At the Beauty Shop UK, we like to keep you up-to-date with all the latest news. Data protection laws considers contacting clients for direct marketing to be a legitimate action for the business. So that’s what we’re going to do. But we do understand that you might not be quite as thrilled about that as us, so if you lose interest in us you can always unsubscribe from any communications. We’ll miss you, but we know that everyone has to walk their own path. Just remember that once you have, we won’t be able to contact you. Simply unsubscribe using the link in our emails or, if you have any questions, email us at email@example.com
SHARING DATA WITH OTHERS
We also use social media platforms from time to time for advertising purposes, as do our carefully selected partners mentioned above.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR DATA?
As far as we’re concerned, if you keep coming back and shopping with us, you’re a member of our community, meaning we’ll keep track of the story you tell through the products you buy. Keeping track of the story you write with us will help us get speedy answers to any questions about your orders and will also help us with the slightly more tedious (but vitally important) legal or audit processes that we are required to complete on occasion.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
As a customer you have a legal right to access any of the personal information that we hold on you. Any request will be dealt with as quickly as possible, and always within 30 days. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mark your request “subject access request” and provide your name, address and email address, and we will get back to you as swiftly as possible.
You can ask us to stop processing your data any time you like. Just get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com if you want us to delete, stop or adjust any part of our processing. As long as it’s legal and we’re able to, we will act immediately.
