Privacy is important
We recognise that the privacy of personal information is important to individuals. Personal information for our business purposes is to be minimal, private, correct, safe and largely in the control of the individual. Except where otherwise legally appropriate we will treat your personal information as private.
Your say on your privacy
If you have a particular concern or query about your personal information held by us you should contact our Privacy Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The nature of our business
Retailing can utilise a number of facilities and functions including shops, the Internet, promotional material (using various forms including paper and electronic mail outs), credit and other card systems, and reward schemes. As a business we carry out any or all of these means of business from time to time.
Obtaining personal information
Because of the nature of our business it is necessary to obtain personal information from time to time. We will not be unduly intrusive nor obtain or use information in an inappropriate manner. We will only ask for and use personal information we reasonably need to conduct our business. If you have received any promotional material and do not wish to receive it, please notify us of this request.
Safekeeping and need to know handling
As part of us keeping your personal information private we only allow access on a need to know basis.
Your access and control
However, in accordance with the privacy law we give you access to your personal information we hold and you can correct misinformation (except where it would be inappropriate or exempted by law e.g – where it would require disclosing someone else’s personal information, but we will provide you with reasons).
It is important for us that persons with whom we do business have confidence that we handle information responsibly and it is our policy to do this.
