Your Data: Key Summary
● Big Bold Brands acts as the data controller. That means we’re responsible for all of the information you share with us when enquiring on our site.
● We never sell your data to third parties, and only collect as much as we need to improve your experience, communicate with you or assist in your enquiry.
● We make every effort to protect your information, and won’t store it for longer than we need to.
● You are in control of any marketing messages we send you. You will always be able to opt out, and we will periodically check that you still want to hear from us. These marketing messages are treated separately to other emails we have to send you, such as marketing material, proposals, quotations, contracts or customer service messages, events.
How we use your data
INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU
● We may collect and process the following data about you:
● Username and password – If we collect a username and password, this is so we can keep your information secure and so that we can have your information to hand each time you visit us.
● Name, address and postcode – Without this we won’t know where to send a response to your enquiry or quotation or contract etc If you have location services enabled on your smart device we may also use this to find your office location or where the enquiry came from.
● Email address – We send responses to questions, enquiries, contracts via email and will send you informational messages as well as offers which may interest you.
● Telephone numbers – If there are any problems with speaking to you via email, or we need to check anything, we need to be able to contact you quickly.
● Information that you provide by registering on our website (bigbbrands.com)
● If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
● We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
● Details of your visits to our site and the resources that you access.
● Your personal details, including name, email address and contact addresses and numbers.
We use these to get in touch with you via email or phone to reply to your query, respond back to a form submission you have done on the site, for fraud prevention and detection, to personalise your web experience, and for customer services purposes. With your permission, we may also use this information to keep you up to date about our new products and services, or in other marketing messages. If you wish to stop receiving marketing messages, you can either unsubscribe using the link in every marketing email we send, or contact our customer our support team.
Your payment details
We keep a record of the billing address you supply to us as part of our fraud prevention work and for future customer service enquiries, such as ensuring invoices are sent to the correct person / department. If you have paid through a third party payment provider like PayPal, we will keep a record of your email address and the payment reference. Other payment mechanisms include direct transfer to our Bank or by cheque, each of which is recorded in our account by the banking authority. For payments with a credit or debit card, we only store the last four digits of your card for fraud and customer service reasons. Because we use a third party provider e.g. GooglePay (for online advertising) to process our payments, our system never actually even has access to your other card details. This is in line with PCI regulations and means your credit card security is preserved at all times.
Your contact history
If you contact our customer services team or our business development team by email or by phone, they may keep a record of this. This is useful for us to personalise the experience with you (so you don’t have to tell us the same things time and time again), to improve your experience, and to carry out staff training so that you can get the best possible service. We may also anonymise and aggregate information and use it to see patterns in our services so that we can improve.
Your purchase history
This is important for us to provide good customer support and look after you in the event of any customer service enquiries. We may also use this to personalise your web experience and the emails we send you, and may also anonymise and aggregate the data to find out what products and services you and people like you might like. This helps us to improve our site and deliver a better experience for you.
Information about your device and how you use our site
Big Bold Brands retain all customer information for 6 years after they last interacted with us. Where there has been a period of 6 years and there has been no interaction between the organisation and the Client, their information is erased and securely disposed of.
