As you know, Black and Sigi is a small business selling gorgeous handmade jewellery. What you may not know is that we not only value our customer’s style, we also value your data. This policy has been created so that you can understand what information we collect and how our fabulous people keep your data safe. However, Internet technologies are rapidly evolving so these guidelines are subject to change.
Placing an order
When you have decided which fab BAS piece is for you and you place an order, we need to collect the personal information which is necessary for our jewellery to arrive through your door. This includes your name, billing address, delivery address, email and phone number and credit card details (credit card details are not stored on our servers but are obviously necessary for payment).
We may also ask for some demographic information for user profiling in aggregate form.
We use this information for the following purposes:
- to send you the product that you have bought.
- to charge you for the product.
- to send email or conventional mail to you, after you have purchased a product.
- to let you know by email of new ranges and services that have come in.
- to perform statistical analyses measuring relative interest in the various areas of our site and customer profiles.
Subscribing to our mailing list
So that you can keep up to date with the latest style trends, you can subscribe to our BAS newsletter. As part of the subscription process, we collect personal information. The BAS team then use that information to send you the exclusive offers, showcase new ranges and don’t forget the birthday treats you signed up for!
We use a third-party provider, Grow Co delivers the BAS newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
Data security and retention
Our techy bods have made sure our data storage methods are secure and meet the GDPR compliance requirement. All transactions are encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We accept orders only from Web browsers that can use SSL technology - this means you cannot inadvertently place an order through an unsecured connection. Most web browsers now support this.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law and they may only use your data for the purposes we specify in our contract with them. We will always work with them to protect your privacy.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal or accounting requirements.
