This policy applies to information we collect when you choose to use this website, and also to personal information which we process further if we supply products to you.
Who we are
This website beaba.co.uk is owned by Beaba UK Limited and our registered office is at Lincoln House 300 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7JH, United Kingdom. Beaba UK Limited (‘we’ or ‘us’) are a ‘data controller’ for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 and as of 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) (as applicable the “Legislation”) where we control the purposes for which we process your personal information. We will take all appropriate steps to ensure compliance with the Legislation.
Any questions about our data protection policy or how we handle your personal data should be addressed to Data Protection Officer [DPO]. (See ‘How to contact us’ below.)
What information do we collect?
We collect personal information about you (such as your name, address, email address, payment details (if you order by telephone) and contact details), when you make an enquiry, register your product with us, or purchase and/or register products from us. We also collect personal information when you contact us via the online ‘Contact Us’ form.
We may send information about you to other parties such as our payment processor (please note we never have any visibility of your credit/debit card or payment details if you order online), our delivery contractors, couriers, associates and service providers and law enforcement agencies in connection with any investigation to help prevent unlawful activity.
How will we use the information about you?
We process information about you so that we can:
• identify you and manage any accounts you hold with us
• provide the products requested
• provide after care and service support in respect of a purchased product
• if you subscribe to our newsletter, let you know about other products or services that may be of interest to you (see ‘Marketing’ section below)
• detect and prevent fraud
• customise our website and its content to your particular preferences
• notify you of any changes to our website or to our products and services that may affect you
• improve our products
For example, we may monitor how many times you visit the website, which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of a user’s internet service provider, to improve the user’s experience whilst visiting the website, and better understand how you use it. This information helps us to build a profile of our users. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.
You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the websites below tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, some of our website features may not function as a result.
Any comments you make on these social media platforms in general must be not offensive, insulting or defamatory. You are responsible for ensuring that any comments you make comply with any relevant policy on acceptable use of those services.
Marketing and email newsletters
If you subscribe to our email newsletter we may use your information to provide you with further information by email about the products and services we offer which may be of interest to you. You can choose to unsubscribe at any point by clicking on the link at the bottom of the email.
Email marketing campaigns published by us may contain tracking facilities within the actual email. Subscribed activity is tracked and stored in a database for future analysis and evaluation. Such tracked activity may include: the opening of emails, forwarding of emails, the clicking of links within the email consent, times, dates and frequency of activity (this is by no means a comprehensive list).
Keeping your data secure
Our staff are bound by obligations of confidentiality and trained in the protection of personal data. We will take all reasonable steps to comply with the Legislation and use the appropriate technical and organisational measures necessary to safeguard your personal data. We only share your personal data with third parties who also comply with the Legislation.
While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that is transferred from you or to you via the internet. If you have any particular concerns about your information, please contact us (see ‘How can you contact us?’ below).
If you want detailed information from Get Safe Online on how to protect your information and your computers and devices against fraud, identity theft, viruses and many other online problems, please visit www.getsafeonline.org. Get Safe Online is supported by HM Government and leading businesses.
We do not send your data outside the EEA.
We store your personal data on secure servers for a period of:
• 6 years from the date on which we collect the information or when you cease to be a customer of ours (whichever is the earlier) only for the purposes of HMRC Compliance
• until you ask us to destroy it
in each case unless the law requires us to store the data for a longer period.
