We take privacy very seriously at Merci Maman and are committed to safeguarding your online data. We will never collect personal data without your explicit consent. We also never have and never will sell your data to third parties.
WHAT DATA DO WE COLLECT
The personal data we collect during your online experience may include but is not limited to:
first name - last name - email address – delivery & billing addresses - phone number.
WHY AND HOW DO WE USE DATA
When you create an account or make a purchase on our website we need to know the information above so we can fulfil your orders and keep you informed on its status. We ask for your phone number solely in case we have a question regarding your order and need to contact you to avoid delay in the delivery of your order.
To process an order you will need to enter your payment card details in our secure check out. You may also be prompted to enter any standard security details that your card processor requires to help detect fraud. This process is private and secure and takes place in a data-encrypted environment, meaning your details cannot be accessed by anyone.
We may use collected information and statistics to help us develop our website and the services we offer to you. These statistics do not include information that can be used to identify you.
We may engage in online advertising and use data to display personalised adverts that are relevant to you.
REQUEST A COPY OF YOUR DATA
You can ask at any time about what data we hold for you as an individual by emailing us at [email protected] and we will send you a report of the data we have.
UPDATE YOUR DATA OR CLOSE YOUR ACCOUNT
If you find any inaccuracies in your report or if you wish to close your account, please notify us of the relevant change or cancellation at [email protected].
Please note that we may keep hold of some of your information after you have closed your account, only to meet legal requirements as part of our financial records for tax inspection purposes.
