Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

 

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about our customers is important to our business. Personal information is shared for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances to fulfil the activities of the business. These are as follows:

  • Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. Personal information will be shared with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

  • Wix.com. We use Wix.com to power our online store. You can read more about how Wix.com uses your Personal Information here.

Marketing Emails

 

We may use your data to form a view on the products and services which we believe could be of interest to you. You will receive marketing communications from us if you have used our services or purchased a product from us or requested information from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.

 

We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any company outside Palm & Wild for marketing purposes.

 

You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us.

 

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of you using our services or other transactions.

 

International Transfers

 

Your information will be held at our offices, by our service providers and in our IT provider’s data centres. Our data centres are based within the UK, but from on the rare occasion, In order for us to provide our services to you, from time to time we may have to share your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). This could include where our service providers are based outside the EEA (for example our IT cloud services), if you are based outside the EEA, if there is an international element to the services we are providing or if one of our employees need to access our data remotely from outside the EEA.

 

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

 

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;

  • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared within Europe;

  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; and/or

  • Where the transfer is not repetitive, information is limited, the transfer is necessary for our legitimate interests and those interests do not override your own and we have put appropriate safeguards in place to protect your data.

 

Data Security

 

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instruction, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

 

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

 

Data retention

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

 

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, regulatory, accounting, or reporting requirements. This is usually 6 years.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. These rights are described below:

  • Access (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information held about you by contacting us using the contact information below.

  • Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request. Please note that we may ask you to verify any changes to your data such as a proof of change of address or name;

  • Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons;

  • Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority;

  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party, for example if you chose to use another business to provide services to you.

  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.

 

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

 

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us using the contact us form on our website. You will not normally have to pay a fee for this, but we will let you know if we feel that it is fair to charge a fee, for example if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances and will let you know if we feel that this is the case.
