This policy document explains how we collect your data and how we process it.
For the purposes of The Data Protection Act 1998 “the Act” the data controller is The Wedding Shop of 80-82 Glentham Road, London, SW13 9JJ.
The information we learn from customers helps us personalise and continually improve your shopping experience. We use the information to handle orders, deliver products and services, process payments, communicate with you about orders, products, services and promotional offers, update our records, maintain your account with us and display content such as customer wish-lists and reviews.
We also use this information to improve our store and platform, prevent or detect fraud or abuses of our website and enable third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf. Here are the types of information we gather:
Information you give to us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. (The only information we do not store are credit card details.) You can choose not to provide certain information but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customising future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
Automatic information we gather: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use 'cookies' and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses our website. ‘Cookies’ are a small file that we put on computer if you agree. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site. The cookies we use are “analytical” cookies which allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors, and see how our visitors move around the site.
A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. However, we will not be able to provide you with a personalised experience if we cannot recognise you but we want to make you aware that these tools exist.
Email communications: To help us make emails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open our emails, if your computer supports such capabilities. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
