Privacy and your personal information

Your privacy is important to us and we will never sell your personal information to others or pass it on for use in marketing, bulk mailing or spam. The personal information we collect and store about you if you make a purchase, or via our Contact page, is used only for the purpose of fulfilling your request or processing your order and is not shared with any third parties. No data about you is transferred or processed outside the UK. You can ask us to delete, update or remove any personal information you have given us at any time at the email below.

Personal information, PayPal and security

If you decide to make a purchase via PayPal you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself including: your name, address, contact details and payment details. You should check PayPal's Privacy Policy to understand how that data will be stored and used. We understand that any sensitive payment information is processed by PayPal using encryption at the highest level commercially available. PayPal will share some of the information you provide with us (for example your name, address and email) to allow us to process your order. We will never be given direct access to your bank details/payment information.

Use of your information

If you make a purchase we will use the information provided to process your order. If you request information from us using our contact page you consent to us sending information about Striped Pebble and to answer your questions. We may use your information to contact you (very occasionally) with offers or products which may be of interest to you, for your views on our services or about changes or developments to the site, products or services. By making a purchase, or contacting us you consent to us using your information for these purposes under GDPR's 'soft opt-in'.

If you change your mind about being contacted in the future please let us know by contacting us at our contact details set out below and we will remove you from our records in line with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations).

Unless required to do so by law, we will not otherwise share, sell or distribute any of the information you provide to us without your consent.

Storing your information

We will do our best to protect any personal information we hold about you against access by any unauthorised persons. You are entitled to see the information held about you and you may ask us to make any necessary changes to ensure that it is accurate and kept up to date.

Because generally people only contact us very infrequently, we keep the information we hold about you for a period of approximately 5 years, or until you tell us you no longer wish to be contacted.
