Here at Garden4Less, ensuring the security of our customers' personal data is of the utmost importance to us. Aside from the essential data we collect from customers during the ordering process, we also collect data which allows us to email our customers from time to time with exciting news and offers.
Where Can I Sign Up to the Garden4Less mailing list?
- When you are placing an order
- When you are signing up for a product stock notification
- In the footer of the Garden4Less website.
What data do you take from me?
The only data we absolutely need from you is your email address - it would be somewhat challenging to send you promotional emails without it!
In addition to this, there are also optional fields which you can fill out should you wish. The information you provide within these optional fields will give us a better understanding of your likes and dislikes and will allow us to tailor our email communications to better suit your preferences.
Inclusion of your name is completely optional and is not required to receive promotional emails from us. If you sign up to our mailing list at the time of ordering, your name will be automatically included but can be removed at any point by updating your data preferences.
How Do You Keep My Data Safe?
Although we don't store the data ourselves, we still have the responsibility to make sure your data's transit to our mailing list is as secure as possible. To ensure your data is passed securely to MailChimp, we use encryption. This means that your personal data cannot be understood by any “data-sniffers" - it is sent across as a random set of letters and numbers that will mean very little to anybody. Garden4Less.co.uk uses a valid SSL certificate to serve the whole website over HTTPS (the S stands for secure), and it is this that encrypts the data.
Most Importantly - How Do You Use My Data?
Simple: we send you promotional emails and nothing else. We like to keep you updated about changes, new products and special offers!
Do You Share My Data
Absolutely not. You can rest assured that Garden4Less do not sell or otherwise provide our mailing list, or any associated data, to anyone - ever.
Can I Complain?
You can send any complaints directly to email@example.com.
If you feel that you're receiving too many emails you have the option to unsubscribe or update your preferences. This option is on the bottom of every marketing email.
