Protecting your personal details on our website.
The Website is brought to you by Zoe Bishton of Kestrel Crafts. Kestrel Crafts believes it is important to protect your Personal Data (as defined in the Data Protection Act 1998) and we are committed to giving you a personalised service that meets your needs in a way that also protects your privacy. This policy explains how we may collect Personal Data about you. It also explains some of the security measures we take to protect your Personal Data and tells you certain things we will do and not do. You should read this policy in conjunction with the Website Terms and conditions.
When we first obtain Personal Data from you, or when you take a new service or product from us, we will give you the opportunity to tell us if you do or do not want to receive information from us about other services or products. You can normally do this by ticking a box on an application form or contract. You may change your mind at any time by emailing us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the Personal Data we hold about you, may be 'sensitive personal data' within the meaning of the Data Protection Act 1998, for example, information about your health or ethnic origin.
We have strict security measures to protect personal data by using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer Software) which encrypts information you input.
Please be aware not all internet communications are secure unless they have been encrypted. Your communications may go through a number of countries before they are delivered, this is the nature of the internet. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal data that is beyond our control.
I have tried to include as many answers as possible, but if there is anything you need to know that isn't covered please feel free to contact me.
