Privacy and Security Policy
At Cocoon Collection Ltd we make a commitment to protecting your privacy and only use information collected about you in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. We are of course registered with the Information Commissioner in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Information we keep about you and what happens to it
When you purchase something from us, you will have given us your name, email address, phone number, address and credit/debit card details. If you have asked us to send a gift direct to a gift recipient you will also have given us their name and address. This information is only used in order for us to deliver the products and to contact you if there is a need.
We keep a history of the orders you have placed with us so you can see your past purchases.
If you have selected to receive our newsletters and details of new products and special offers you can opt to unsubscribe to this service at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We NEVER exchange, sell or otherwise give away your email address to other companies. Your email address is used solely by yourself, for purposes of logging into your account, and by us for emailing you regarding your orders and to update you with our newsletter/s.
Should a recipient contact us about a gift you have asked us to deliver to them on your behalf, we will not divulge any more information regarding the order to them, other than information you may have asked us to include on the Gift Message Card accompanying the gift. In some circumstances, where we feel it necessary we may contact you if a recipient has contacted us regarding a gift they have received.
Payment card details are encrypted using 128 bit encrypted SSL ("Secure Sockets Layer") for maximum security. All credit card transactions are handled through the UPG (Universal Payment Gateway) facility provided by Secure Hosting Ltd, a specialist online payment processor. The UPG employs the latest industry standard encryption technology to keep our customers personal information safe. The UPG guards and transacts payment onto our acquiring bank, Lloyds Cardnet, using advanced verification and anti-fraud technology.
We will never reveal your complete credit or debit card number in full on any invoices or order confirmation we issue back to you. We do however, have to store and transmit the entire number to the card processing company in order to process your transaction.
We maintain a high level of electronic, physical, and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of your personal customer information. Occasionally we may request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer.
