What personal data we collect and why we collect it
This policy covers The Sweetheart Party Company (henceforth referred to as ‘the company’, ‘our company’, ‘us’ or ‘we’) and all of it’s subsidiaries use of any data collected from visitors to our website. The Company is determined to protect your privacy. It is very important to us that you should be able to use and enjoy the website without having to compromise your privacy unacceptably.
The data we collect
We automatically collect data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns. Please note that this is aggregate data and does not identify any individual.
On occasion, we may also ask you to provide personal information on a voluntary basis in order to get a clearer picture of our users. It is then entirely up to you whether you are happy to give us this information. Any information entered in this manner will be held in the strictest of confidence and will under no circumstances be passed on to any third parties.
In the course of signing up to the newsletter or entering competitions and promotions for example, you will be asked to give some details about yourself. You may also choose to e-mail us or make contact with us in other ways. Such contact gives us information about you.
Please be assured that with the exception of companies within the company, we will never share information about you to third parties. The Company complies with the relevant legal requirements and takes all reasonable care to ensure that your information is secure and private.
If you tell us that you do not want us to use your details, then data about your use of the website would then only form part of aggregated statistics and would not be related to you as an individual.
You can ask to see the information we have about you by e-mailing a request to us.
