What Personal Information About Customers Does OlneyRugs Gather?
During the checkout process, we ask for the minimum of information from you. The information we obtain from our customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at OlneyRugs. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us:
The information which you provide via the OlneyRugs Online Store will be processed by OlneyRugs in order to process your order. You will be required to register as a customer on the OlneyRugs Online Store which will include creating a user name and password and providing contact details along with other information required to process your order. This information will also be used for accounting and auditing purposes and to deal with any enquiries and complaints that we may receive from you.
During the registration process, you will have the option to consent to OlneyRugs using your personal data for marketing purposes. If you decide to opt-in, you may change your mind at any time and opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of all newsletters.
You can also choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our websites features. If you contact us by email or through a web page to request information, report a problem or provide feedback on our services or products we will use the information you provide to respond to your message, to address the issue you have raised, and to make improvements to our services. We do not use this information for other purposes.
How long do we keep your information
The information that we are given when you place an order is usually kept for 6 years from the end of the financial year that you placed the order. This is done because we need to keep tax records in accordance to any tax rules and regulations.
Any information you give us when making an enquiry about our products or services is only kept as long as we need. Ideally once we have answered your query, we destroy or delete any information you give us.
Personal Information Accuracy
The information we obtain from the website will be kept up to date. Should we receive notice from you that some of your information has changed, we will update our data in accordance to that given by you. It is also possible for you to access all your account information and to update it yourself by accessing your personal account.
Does OlneyRugs Share the Information It Receives?
We respect your privacy and appreciate your business. At no time do we ever provide your account contact or payment information to any third party vendor, associate or service provider unless absolutely necessary in order to complete your transaction and order. Your payment card details are collected and held by our secure payment service providers. Only the card type and last 4 digits of your card number are shared with us for accounting and audit purposes.
We also share your contact information with our delivery partners, so that items ordered can be delivered to you in a timely manner.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
OlneyRugs always use industry standard encryption technologies when sending and receiving customer data exchanged with our site. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you provide to us for purchasing of our products or services.
Any passwords stored on the site are encrypted and even we cannot see what you have entered. As with most other online stores, we do recommend that you do not use the same password on multiple sites. You are responsible for keeping your password confidential, and you agree not to share that password with anyone else
Which Information Can I Access?
OlneyRugs gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with us for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. Whilst all the information that we hold on you is accessible by you, you do have the right to request to see the information that we hold. We will have your names, addresses, telephone numbers, email address, and any orders that you may have made on file. We do not have access to your passwords.
If you have a concern about the way we are collecting or using your personal data, we request that you raise your concern with us in the first instance. Alternatively, you can contact the Information Commissioners Office at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/
How do we store and protect your personal information?
OlneyRugs are committed to protecting your personal information once we have it. We implement physical, business and technical security measures. Despite our efforts, if we learn of a security breach, we will notify you so that you can take appropriate protective steps.
We also do not want your personal information for any longer than we need it, so we only keep it long enough to do what we collected it for. Once we do not need it, we take steps to destroy it unless we are required by law to keep it longer.
You may instruct us to provide you with any personal information we hold about you. Provision of such information will be subject to:
(a) the supply of appropriate evidence of your identity (for this purpose, we will usually accept a photocopy of your passport certified by a solicitor or bank plus an original copy of a utility bill showing your current address).
We may withhold such personal information to the extent permitted by law.
