Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how Peter Nyssen uses and protects any information that you give us. Peter Nyssen is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. Peter Nyssen may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

Data Laws

Peter Nyssen Ltd is committed to protecting your privacy. We will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003) in addition to the the updated General Data Protection Act 25th May 2018.

Peter Nyssen Ltd is a registered data processor under the Data Protection Act.

The law on data protection sets out a number of different reasons for which a company may collect and process your personal data, including:

In specific situations, we can collect and process your data with your consent. For example, when you tick a box to receive an email newsletter.

When collecting your personal data, we’ll always make clear to you which data is necessary in connection with a particular service

  1. Contractual obligations. In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligations. For example, if you order an item from us for home delivery, we’ll collect your address details to deliver your purchase and pass them to our courier.
  2. Legal compliance. If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data.  For example, we can pass on details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity affecting Peter Nyssen Ltd to law enforcement.
  3. Legitimate interest. In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests.  For example, we will use your purchase history to send you or make available personalised offers.  We also combine the shopping history of many customers to identify trends and ensure we can keep up with demand, or develop new products/services.  We will also use your address details to send you direct marketing information by post, telling you about products and services that we think might interest you.

 

How and when do we collect your data?

Our systems collect address and buying information at the point of order so that we may process your order and provide you with the best possible service.

We may also collect your data in any of the following circumstances:

  • When you visit our website, and use your account to buy products and services
  • When you make an online purchase and check out as a guest (in which case we just collect transaction-based data).
  • When you create an account with us on our website
  • When you engage with us on social media
  • When you contact us by any means with queries, complaints etc.
  • When you enter prize draws or competitions
  • When you choose to complete any surveys we send you. 
  • When you comment on or review our products and services
  • When you ask us to contact you when a specific product is back in stock
  • When you click submit or place an item in your basket we may have the ability to retain some of your information, even if you don’t complete your registration. Such contact details and data may be used to contact you to enquire why you did not complete your registration/transaction, ie: an abandoned basket email.

We use this information to make your shopping experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. We need it to process your order, inform you of any delays or problems and occasionally to send you special offers and promotions, although you can manage your communication preferences at any time – see ‘Your Mailing Preferences.’

The information we collect is:

  • Your name
  • Email address – so we can email your order confirmations, delivery delays, offers etc.
  • Delivery address
  • Telephone number or mobile number – we’ll only call if we have a delivery problem or to talk to you about your order
  • Credit card details – we only ask for these when you place an order and we do not store them after you have completed the order process

How we protect your data

We secure access to all transactional areas of our websites and apps using ‘https’ technology.

Access to your personal data is password-protected

We update our systems regularly to be in line with all security improvements.

We use the latest secure server technology to ensure all information is protected to the highest standards

We use encryption to safeguard your credit card information and only accept orders from web browsers that permit communication through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology - this means you cannot inadvertently place an order through an unsecured connection. Most web browsers support this security.

We are assessed yearly by TrustWave to maintain our Certificate of Validation for PCI DSS compliance.

How long will we keep your personal data?

Whenever we keep your personal data we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

At the end of the retention period your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

Your mailing preferences

We want to give you the best possible customer experience. One way to achieve that is to get the richest picture we can of who you are by combining the data we have about you.We then use this to offer you promotions, products and services that are most likely to interest you. The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of service.

Remember, if you choose not to share your personal data with us, or refuse certain contact permissions, we might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for.

There are several ways you can stop or start direct marketing email communications from us:

  • Click the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any email communication that we send you. We will then stop any further emails.
