Section 1 – What we do with your information?
When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we temporarily collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.
When you browse our store, we 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.
In all cases, your information is used to either (i) service our obligations to you, such as fulfilling your order; and/or (ii) to send information which we believe is of interest and meets our explicit purpose to provide customer service. This is done in line with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 2018.
Marketing from Claire Vaughan Designs Ltd: Only with your explicit permission (see Section 2 – Consent) may we send you information about our store, new products, news and other updates.
We never share, sell, rent or lease your details to a third party, unless required to do so in Law.
Section 2 – Consent
How do you get my consent, and what is our lawful basis for processing your data?
There are two ways we do this:
(i) 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 (known as ‘A Contract with the Individual’);
(ii) you submit your details and give your explicit permission to receive marketing and related information through our ‘double opt-in’ sign-up form. This extends a number of options to request the types of information you receive.
Wholesale Customers Only: Your opportunity to submit this information will be included in your first order documentation.
In all cases, such consent will last for no more than 24 months from the date it is given (in writing). You can however withdraw your consent at any time:
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent at any time, by contacting us at email@example.com or mailing us at: Lunnon Cottage, Vowchurch Common, HEREFORD HR2 0RL.
You may reasonably ask at any time for information on how we hold your data, and how we use and safeguard it at all times, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or mailing us at: Lunnon Cottage, Vowchurch Common, HEREFORD HR2 0RL. We meet the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) response times of no more than one month from the date the request is received.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
We use an ever-changing range of carriers and distributors to deliver your products and orders as safely and as timely as we can. These include but are not exclusive to: Royal Mail, Hermes, Collect+ and Parcel2Go.com
Email marketing is typically done in-house using a third party provider of automated marketing software, such as Mailchimp. Please see their Privacy Statements for how they process and handle your data, including its use on our behalf. (From 25 May 2018, our use of such service(s) for eMarketing is/are restricted only to ‘double opted-in’ contacts).
