Our Privacy Policy - last updated 21st March 2017

At GearforGirls we take your privacy very seriously. We need to collect information from you to process your order and this policy explains how we use the information we collect and how we safeguard your privacy.

The main privacy issues you need to know:

  • We will never rent, sell or share your personal information with anyone. Ever.
  • When you trust us with your email address, we take that trust very seriously. We will never sell, lease or share your email address with anyone, for any reason. We hate spam as much as you do!
  • Your personal details, such as your address, billing information, email address and other information are stored on a fully secure server in one of the most secure data centres in the world.
  • We don't store any of your credit card details at all.
  • When you create a password to access our website, this password is stored on our server in an encrypted format.

The information we collect and how we use it:

When you register with GearforGirls and/or place an order, we need to know your name, delivery address, credit or debit card number and expiry date, email address and telephone number. This information allows us to fulfil your order and notify you of the status of your order. This is all we use your information for. If we get in touch with you it will be about your order or very occasionally if there is some major change at GearforGirls (such as moving to a new website) which may affect your account.

If you subscribe to our newsletter you will just hear from us - just us - no one else.

We may, from time to time, send with your ordered products, inserts advertising the goods or services of unrelated third party companies. It doesn't happen very often and usually they are small local businesses providing services we think you might be interested in. Often it's our way of helping the local community. We do not pass on your personal data to these third party companies.

By submitting your information you consent to the use of that information as set out in this Policy. Because the Internet infrastructure is global, and it is not possible to predict the routes that information sent over the Internet will take, the information you provide may be transferred temporarily via a route which takes it outside the European Economic Area as it passes between you and us. By submitting your information you consent to this transfer. Your information will always be secure and encrypted.

Passive Collection of Information

When you visit the website site, some information may be automatically collected. For example, it is standard for your Web browser to automatically send information to every Web site you visit including ours. Such information includes your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, access times, browser type and language, and referring Web site addresses. We may also collect information about your computer’s operating system and information about your usage and activity on the Site. Usage of third-party tracking software, such as Google Analytics can be used to aid in the collection of such information. 

Cookies

We may automatically collect certain information through the use of “cookies.” Cookies are small data files that are stored on your hard drive by a Web site. Among other things, the use of cookies helps us to improve the Site and your experience on the Site. We use cookies to personalize your experience and to remember your preferences. If your browser is set not to accept cookies or if you reject a cookie, you may not be able to access certain features or services of the Site.

Web Beacons

Web beacons are electronic images that may be used on the Site or in our emails. A Web beacon may be used on our Web pages to collect information, deliver cookies, count visits, compile statistics on usage and campaign effectiveness and in our emails to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.

Security of your information

We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us. This is to prevent unauthorised access or unlawful processing of your personal information. We keep your information confidential and store it on a secure server which is password protected and hidden behind a firewall from the outside world. We use secure socket layer software (SSL) to encrypt all of your personal information during transmission across the Internet. Further to this, we don't ever store any of your payment card details on our server. See our security page for more information.

Non-disclosure to third parties

We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if this is required for the purpose of completing your transaction with us - for example third party payment gateways such as sagepay and paypal. If we have a special joint promotion with one of our brand suppliers we will specifically obtain your permission to share data i.e. give you the chance to opt-in (this would be a very rare event for us and so far we have never carried out such an exercise). 

We use your information only as set out in this Policy and will not sell, rent or pass your information on to others for marketing purposes without your express consent. 

Your consent

By submitting your information and using our web site, you consent to the collection, storage and processing of your personal information by us in the manner set out in this Policy. If we change our Privacy Policy we will post the changes on this web site so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use and under what circumstances we disclose it.
