What information do we collect?
In order to fulfil your orders, we require that you provide us with certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information through third party payment processors:
Stripe - see their Privacy Policies and Terms: https://stripe.com/gb/privacy
You may also need to provide us with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewellery, for example), if you contact us directly by email or phone. Any email correspondence will be saved for your order reference only and will not be shared with other parties.
How do we use your information and why do we need it?
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service and in order to fulfil certain legal requirements we have as a business. In particular we collect it for the following reasons:
To fulfil your order: we may get in touch with you by email or phone if we have questions regarding your order (such as confirming details for a peronalised/bespoke order).
Meeting internal audit requirements: we may keep certain information as is necessary for the purpose of our legitimate business interests and lawful tax obligations as a company.
Internal research and development: we may use the information to improve our products and services.
When do we share personal data?
We treat all personal data confidentially, however we do occasionally need to share some limited information with trusted third parties for example:
service providers such as delivery companies
in order to comply with UK tax law
We will only share limited information to the extent necessary to carry out these services.
How do we store and process personal data?
We may need to hold your personal information for a period of time, but no longer than is reasonably necessary in order to provide you with our services, fulfil your orders and to fulfil our legitimate business interests and lawful obligations. The data we retain includes your order form, contact details and email correspondence regarding your order. We may also be required to share some of this information to comply with our legal, regulatory and tax obligations.
