Data collected and methods of data collection

Sending information via the internet is never completely secure. We do our best to protect your personal data, however, we cannot guarantee the security of your data.

The information we collect from is dependent on the activities you are carrying out on our website. We may collect the following information:

• Your contact information, e.g name, address, telephone number and email address,

• Navigation and click–stream data, time and duration of your visit, products viewed or searched for, items in your basket, basket abandonment, information from cookies or web beacons.

We obtain information from you when you type in your personal details (i.e. when placing an order or requesting a catalogue or newsletter). We also collect data automatically as you use the website, or from third parties.

Cookies

To improve your experience with us, our website uses cookies and web beacons. A cookie is a piece of data that our website automatically transfers to the hard drive of your computer or mobile device when you access the website and is used to:

• Access stored information when you log in,

Your browser options allow you to disable cookies. You should note that if you do disable cookies, you may not be able to access all the services on this site. By continuing to use the site, you are accepting our use of cookies on our site.

Web beacons work in a similar way to cookies and allow us to monitor the behaviour of our site users.

The following data may be automatically collected every time you visit the website regardless of whether you are logged in: computer and connection information, browser information, operating system and platform details and time of access. We may use an IP address to identify you and to gather broad demographic information about you, which we will use to assist in the detection of fraud, to help identify problems, to administer the website and for marketing purposes.

If you have provided us with an email address, we will be able to associate this email address back to your previous browsing and purchase experiences.

To prevent and detect fraud, we may also obtain details of your credit history from credit reference agencies.

What is your information used for?

The main purposes for which we collect and store your personal information are as follows:

• Order processing
• Delivery of products
• Payment authorisation and billing
• Promoting our offers and products
• Improving the website and our service to you

We will contact you with marketing information where relevant if you have opted to receive such communications. You may opt out of our communications at any time, although it may take a short time for any changes to become effective.

Use of your information by third parties

We will not sell your personal information to third parties. However, we do share customer and browsing information with third parties as described below. By making a purchase on the website, you consent to Heywood Hill sharing your personal information with third parties as is necessary to process your order, for example, to banks, credit card companies and carriers. These carefully selected third parties may be in countries outside the UK.

We may form contracts with other companies to provide certain services, including credit card processing, shipping, name and address verification, database management profiling and segmentation, market research and promotions management. We provide these companies with only the information they need to perform their services. These companies are prohibited by contract from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than Heywood Hill.

To protect against the fraudulent use of credit cards, we carry out security checks on orders. These can take various forms, and may involve contacting you by telephone before your order is processed.

Heywood Hill may disclose your personal information if necessary to comply with regulations or law or to assist with law enforcement, to enforce the terms under which you trade with us, to protect our property and other rights.

Our website may contain links to third parties’ websites. Heywood Hill assumes no responsibility for the privacy practices or the content of those websites.

Your personal information, as a valuable asset of the company, may also be transferred to a third party in the event that Heywood Hill is sold, or in the case of liquidation or administration. Use of your personal information will remain subject to this Privacy Policy.
