Signs Express believe strongly in protecting the privacy of all website users (“you”, “yours”) and this notice sets out how we use your personal data.
What data (“personal information”) do we gather from you?
We gather personal information such as first and last names, addresses and email addresses that you provide voluntarily when you fill in appropriate sections of our website. For example when you complete our contacts section, when you request details of our products and services, when you shop on-line or when you enter one of our on-line competition promotions you provide us with personal information which we hold and use for the purposes set out in the next section.
Use of your personal information
Our main aim in gathering your personal information is to provide you with a customised service.
If you fill your details in our contact section we use your personal information in order that we can contact you and respond to any questions and needs that you may have. We use your personal information so that we can carry out your requests. If you purchase products and services from our on-line shop, we collect data so that the product and services can be ordered and supplied to you as efficiently as possible.
We may also use aggregate personal information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop the website and our services and may provide such aggregate personal information to third parties. These statistics will not include any data that can be used to identify any individual.
If, at some time in the future, we wish to use your personal data in ways other than those set out in this privacy notice, then we will notify you about this and seek your permission to do so.
Sharing of personal information
Those selected companies are either our partners who perform a function such as prize-provision within our promotions and offers, or our agencies and suppliers whom we have retained to assist us to more effectively fulfil orders, manage and conduct promotions and offers, provide technical assistance and support and perform other functions to support our marketing activities.
All selected companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform such functions, but will only be permitted by us to use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function (which may include one to which you have expressly given your consent) and not for any other purpose.
We do not currently envisage our wishing to transfer personal information about you outside of the European Economic Area, but in the unlikely event we should wish to do so in future, we will only do so to the extent that it is permitted under all privacy and communications legislation applicable within England and Ireland. Of course if we need your specific and express consent to do this, we will obtain it before transferring any personal information.
Occasionally, with your permission and depending on the purpose for and context in which you gave that permission, we will send to you by e-mail or SMS text message marketing information and news, for example, relating to new product offerings, loyalty schemes, special offers, competitions and other promotions and offers. This may include our sending to you marketing information for the products or services of a promotional partner on that partner’s behalf.
However, in every case, if you do not elect to receive such communications or if you elect to discontinue receiving them, then we will not send or will cease sending them to you. Also, we reserve the right to use or disclose any personal information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfil your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement or regulatory investigation. Save for this, we do not sell, transfer or disclose personal information we have collected from you in connection with our web site activities, to third parties outside the Signs Express Family.
Whilst we make every effort only to tie-in with reputable companies which have a similar high regard for your privacy, you should make sure you are aware of what their privacy policies say, as we are not responsible for the policies and practices of other companies, including those of other members of the Signs Express Family.
If, in the future, a third party acquires Signs Express or substantially all of its assets (whether by merger, acquisition, reorganisation or otherwise) customer data, including personal information, may well be one of the transferred assets.
