We will collect no personally identifiable information about you when you visit our Site unless you voluntarily choose to provide that information to us. Any personally identifiable information that you provide to us via our Site will be used only for such purposes as are described either in this Privacy Policy or at the point of collection, such as to respond to your questions or comments, to register your product, to sell you products, to send you a requested brochure or to otherwise send information or products to you. The type of personally identifiable information we may collect from you when you choose to provide it may include your: name, shipping and billing addresses, e-mail address, credit card numbers and other details necessary to process credit card payments, phone numbers, product serial numbers, company name, and IP address. We may also at times request job titles and shipping carrier account numbers as necessary to complete a transaction. If you provide contact information, we or our agents may contact you to clarify your comment or question, or to learn about your level of customer satisfaction with our services. We may use the information you give us to help us provide better products and service and to send you information or promotional materials if you request them. We will never send you marketing information, unless you have given us permission to do so.

We also collect certain non-personal information from Visitors and Users such as your browsing history on the Application, the length of time spent on certain pages, the website Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) from the website you were visiting before coming to this Site, which URL you next visit, device type, what browser you are using, Internet service provider, date/time of visit information, and operating system. We will use the non-personal information we collect to conduct statistical analysis of our Application and other services, to troubleshoot service issues or interruptions, to update and improve the Services, and to understand the demographics of our Users and their browsing habits.

We will store your information until it is no longer needed, after the expiration of statutory preservation duties, either upon you deleting your account or you sending us a request via info@badges4events.co.uk. Should you not access your account for a consecutive period of 3 years, we may delete your details. Should you then want to use your account, you will need to create a brand new account.

We hold data collected regarding complaints about our products or service in our complaints database for a maximum of 6 years.

In some limited circumstances, badges4events™ may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

Who Helps Us Process Your Information?

We use a select number of trusted external service providers for certain technical data analysis and development, processing and/or storage. These providers include (but are not limited to) companies that help us to get your purchases to you, such as payment service providers and delivery companies.

All service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection and security standards. We only share information with them that is required for the services offered.

Some of your personal data may be stored in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area. We take additional steps to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR.

Should there be a security breach, we follow strict procedures as defined by the Information Commissioner’s Office [ICO]. We regularly check our systems to ensure they are safe and we promise that in the unlikely event of a security breach, we will let you know.

If you provide your consent, but later wish to withdraw it, please call us on 01933 627216 or send an email to info@badges4events.co.uk.
