What we do with the information we collect
The information we collect about you is used in numerous ways, all of which are either legally required to fulfil our services to you or because you have given us permission to do so.
We collect information about you to process your order, manage your online account, and if you have given consent we will email you about other products and services we think that you may be interested in.
We may also use your personal information and past purchases to identify products that might be relevant and interesting to you.
Other reasons could be:
Internal record keeping
To Improve products & services
To periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers, or to collect reviews
Who we share your information with
Like many other companies we may need to share your information with other services to help manage the certain services we provide, for example the courier companies, our review system, or promotional material providers (If consented).
As such, The One Stop Garden Shop will share your information with these external companies for the benefit of you.
The providers we work with only use your personal information for the purposes we stipulate and are strictly prohibited from using your data for any other reason. We never sell your information to any organisations.
Our providers support us in sending emails to you, providing you with feedback requests, printing and distributing our promotional material.
We also use the services of a third party to help us keep the information we hold on postal addresses accurate. The postal service requires this to reduce incorrectly addressed mail and keep wastage to a minimum.
How we communicate with our customers
Whether you are new to The One Stop Garden Shop or you have shopped with us before, we would like to keep you updated with the products and services we offer, if you have given consent for us to do so. However, if you have asked to receive this information in the past and you no longer wish to, you can opt out whenever you want to.
At any given time you have the right to stop us from contacting you about products and services. If you no longer wish to be contacted for this reason, please contact us at email@example.com.
As part of our advertising activity we use 'remarketing'. This is a way for us to show you products we think you might like. We base these product suggestions on your past visits to our website. The images may be displayed to you through other websites you visit or while you browse the internet.
