We do not collect data unnecessarily. However, in order to run our online shop we do need to collect some data from you sometimes. We are committed to treating your personal data (e.g. your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, billing and delivery address) with respect and in the strictest confidence. We will always only use the information we collect about you carefully, lawfully and in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
You can visit and browse our site anonymously. However, we need to collect information from you when you register on our site or place an order. When ordering or registering you will be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, postal address and phone number. We need to maintain a record of the password for your account. We keep a record of the delivery address(es) for your orders. If you sign-up to receive our email newsletters we only hold your name and email address.
WHAT DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION FOR?
Any personal data which is collected during the purchasing process is only used by us and our carefully selected service provider companies to ensure that we can take, process, deliver your order and maintain your account to the highest standard possible. Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS
We use payment gateways that are secured by multiple industrial data encryption, fraud detection and security technologies, the world's most respected certification body for internet firms. All supplied information is encrypted into gateway database. It is only accessible by those authorised with special access rights to gateway's system. All the information is kept confidential.
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider temporarily transfers to your computer's hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognise your browser and capture and remember certain information. Cookies cannot harm your computer and do not contain any personal or private information.
If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, if you turn your cookies off, our website will not function properly.
DO WE DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION TO OUTSIDE PARTIES?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information except to properly process and deliver your order. We only share your information with trusted third parties, such as PayPal and some of our suppliers and delivery companies, in order to operate our website, conduct our business and provide you with a service, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
We promise not to provide any of your personal data to any outside company for marketing purposes. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
We may release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.
REQUESTS FOR YOUR INFORMATION
Phishing is the practice of tricking someone into surrendering private information for the purposes of identity theft.
In order to protect you against phishing we will never ask you to send or confirm personal information such as passwords and credit card numbers by email. If we need any information of this nature we will only contact you by phone, and will take appropriate steps to confirm your identity.
If you receive an e-mail claiming to be from Melkior Professional UK requesting this type of information, please DO NOT RESPOND, contact us immediately and forward us a copy of the email.
