Use of personal data
We collect and hold data because it is necessary for the pursuit of our legitimate interests as a business. These legitimate interests are set out below:
Processing your orders and dealing with your enquiries
Understanding our customers' wishes and shopping preferences
Continually improving our service and products for our customers
Analysis for planning of business activities for Eternal Collection Ltd
Due to our extended customer loyalty and our wish to provide our customers with appropriate products and services we retain our customer data for 10 years after the last purchase date.
Sharing your data with others
1. With credit card clearing agencies (Lloyds Cardnet in the UK), fraud detection and prevention agencies that we use to process the orders you place. We only provide the data needed to perform these functions.
2. We do not pass credit or debit card details on to any third party.
3. If our business assets are ever sold.
4. Suppliers we engage to process data on our behalf - we use a web development company (Visualsoft Ltd) and a mailing house (Johnston Mailing Ltd).
5. From time to time we would like to be able to pass your information to trusted retail partners that offer products or services that we have identified as likely to be of interest to you. We will only do this if you have opted-in to receive such communications e.g. when you registered, when you completed your order form or catalogue request form, or entered a competition or prize draw.
We work with Epsilon Abacus (registered as Epsilon International UK Ltd), a company that manages the Abacus Alliance on behalf of UK retailers. The participating retailers are active in the clothing, collectables, food & wine, gardening, gadgets & entertainment, health & beauty, household goods and home interiors categories. They share information on what their customers buy. Epsilon Abacus analyses this pooled information to understand consumers' wider buying patterns. From this information, retailers can tailor their communications, sending people suitable offers that should be of interest to them, based on what they like to buy.
You may ask us at any point not to share your information with third parties for this purpose.
Epsilon Abacus may transfer data outside the EEA. The transfer will take place in the presence of appropriate safeguards, including standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission.
