Information Security and Data Protection
Soak&Sleep is committed to protecting your privacy, and takes its responsibilities regarding the security of customer information very seriously. This policy explains how we use customer information, how we protect your privacy and how we comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
When you shop at Soak&Sleep, there are different ways we gather information about you:
Personal information about you is gathered from our secure online shopping facility (excluding your payment card data), our on-line newsletter subscription, our contact us and our tell-a-friend functions.
When you place an order or product enquiry with us, we ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, delivery address and contact details. We keep a record of this information. All this is necessary for us to recognise you as a customer in the future and to fulfil the orders you place with us.
If you buy on-line your payment card details are collected by the on-line payment provider and at no time are these made available to Soak&Sleep. Therefore we do not hold or store this type of personal information.
We keep a record of your purchases with us, this means we can deal quickly with any problems you may experience with your order. It also means we can send you details of relevant offers.
We keep a record of any e-mail correspondence you send us, which helps us keep track any problems or concerns you've had with our products or services.
If you subscribe to our newsletter, we retain only your email address to allow us to send you newsletters. At all times you retain the right to unsubscribe.
