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:
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 subscibe 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 migt 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.
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 accross 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.
Opt in / Opt out
