Privacy Policy


Data confidentiality and privacy of customers and users of this web site is of utmost importance to us. We fully comply with all aspects of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018, and none of the information that you provide to us will be sold or passed on to any third party, unless we are required to do so by law. The information that we gather from you is used by us to ensure that we can give you the best possible service.

 

 

SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

 

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

 

Email marketing:


With your permission, when you opt into our email newsletter, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.

 

 

SECTION 2 - CONSENT

 

How do you get my consent?


When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

 

How do I withdraw my consent?

 

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use, or disclosure, of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at post@quirky.gifts or mailing us at: Quirky Gifts, 25 Milnshaw Lane, Accrington, Lancashire, BB5 1AY. UK.

 

You can unsubscribe from our marketing emails at any time by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link, which is included in the footer of all marketing emails.

 

 

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

We will never sell or give away your data to any third party except as we are obliged to do by law as above.

 


SECTION 4 - PAYMENTS


If you choose to pay by credit or debit card on our site, your payment will be made via our secure payment provider. Your card and personal data is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. 

 

 

SECTION 5 - LINKS AND THIRD PARTY SERVICES

When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

Google Analytics:

 

Our store uses Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits our site and what pages are being looked at.

 

 

SECTION 6 - SECURITY

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

SECTION 7 - COOKIES

A cookie is a small file that is downloaded onto your computer when you visit a website. It allows us to recognise and tailor our site to you and it won’t harm your computer.

If you prefer, you can restrict, block or delete cookies by changing your browser settings but that may mean that you won’t be able to add products to the cart and buy products from our store.

SECTION 8 - AGE OF CONSENT

 

By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your country of residence.

 

 

SECTION 9 - CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

 

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it. If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.

 

 

QUESTIONS AND CONTACT INFORMATION

 

You may request at any time details of personal information which we hold about you under the General Data Protection Regulations 2018. There is no fee for this, unless the request is excessive. Data will be provided within one month, unless the collection of the requested data is excessive, in which case this may be extended to two months. Excessive requests may be chargeable, although the fee will be limited to the administrative costs incurred.
