When customers visit the website, we automatically collect certain information from your device including the web browser used, IP address, time zone and some of the cookies you may have installed. We also collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the website and how you interact and engage with it.

Device Information is collected using the following technologies:

  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org
  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

How do we use your personal information?

This information is used to fulfil, and complete orders placed through the website facilitating the following procedures:

  • Shipping arrangements
  • Invoice and order confirmation

Order information is vital should we need to contact customers regarding economic or environmental circumstances that may impact the delivery time of their order and/ or unexpected stock levels. Both device and order information are used to screen orders for any fraud or potential risk.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

 

Sharing your personal information:

To enable us to fulfil your order we need to share customers personal information to third parties (i.e. shipping details). This is generally disclosed to our warehouse who may be required to ship items. Find more details here >  https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy. Google Analytics is also acquired to help us understand how our customers interact with the website, including their frequency levels, time spent on it and other aspect of the consumer process journey.

Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive or to otherwise protect our rights.

 

Behavioural advertising:

The use of Google analytics assists our team in providing targeted advertisements or marketing communications as a result of your past behaviour. I.e. if a customer has purchased items relative to a campaign, this insight helps us re-engage with them should a similar one re-occur in the future.
