At Pelgrane Press Ltd, we’re committed to protecting your privacy.
This Policy explains how and why we collect personal information about our customers, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure. By using our website, you’re agreeing to be bound by this Policy. Contact us if you have any questions about this policy.
How do we collect information from you?
We obtain information about you when you place an order, sign up to the newsletter register for a bookshelf or enter a competition.
What type of information is collected from you?
The personal information we might collect include your name, address, email address, IP address, and information regarding what pages are accessed and when. We do not hold your card information, or other financial details. We store your email address to allow you to access your account and so we can send you order related emails, and notify you of important changes to your account and if you are a customer, send you offers related to your purchase. We store your country so we can use the correct currency for your purchases and comply with data protection law.
How is your information used?
We may use your information to:
- process your orders
- carry out our legal and financial obligations to regulatory authorities
- deal with entries into a competition;
- notify you of important changes to your account
- send you communications
- create a demographic profile of our customer base, for example, what proportion of our customers are in a particular country
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that if you’ve chosen to receive marketing information we can tailor any communication we send to you.
Who has access to your information?
We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes without your express permission.,
Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf
We may pass your information to our third party service providers for example to process your orders and send you mailings. However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties unless we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
You have a choice about whether or not you wish to receive information from us. We will not contact you for marketing purposes unless you have given your prior consent. You can opt in or opt out of marketing emails on your Pelgrane bookshelf, or opt out in one click on any marketing email.
How you can access and update your information
The accuracy of your information is important to us. You can update your details on the registered users’ page.
Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
We take steps to ensure your information is secure. Any sensitive information (such as card or Paypal payment details) is encrypted. Other information is transmitted normally over the Internet, and as this can never be guaranteed to be entirely secure, you do so at your own risk. When we’ve received your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. You are responsible for keeping your password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone, and we will not share it either.
