Adam & Eve respects and protects the privacy of all visitors to our website. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you are at all concerned about anything regarding the privacy of your details.
Collection and use of your data
Your data is stuff that identifies you, such as your name, e-mail or postal addresses. Adam & Eve does not collect your data from you unless you specifically give it to us (e.g. when subscribing to e-mail newsletters, taking part in competitions etc.) and consent to its use.
We will never sell or lease your personal data to a third party because, at the very least, this is incredibly annoying. We may, however, have to disclose information about you if we are required to do so by law or in response to enforceable governmental requests.
Use of your data to tell you more about Adam & Eve
If you expressly agree to the use of your data for us to tell you more about Adam & Eve, then your data will also be stored and used for such purposes, e.g. for sending you our newsletters, competitions etc., all via e-mail or post or any other communication channel you consented to. We may also use the data provided by you for analysing and improving the effectiveness of our website services, advertising, marketing, market research, and sales efforts.
Withdrawal of consent
You may withdraw your consent to use your data completely or partly at any time with future effect. We will erase your data upon receipt of the withdrawal notice.
Right to information
Upon request, we will promptly inform you which of your data, if any, was collected during your visits to our website. Please direct all you queries to us via our contact page.
Information we automatically record
We use general aggregate traffic and website usage statistics derived from automatically collected mechanisms, including cookies, for statistical reporting. For example, we may publicly report usage trends and names of organisations that use our sites (based on IP addresses), though we will not connect specific activity on the site with specific users. We may share such reports with organisations with which we have a business relationship and in our public communications. We use the aggregate traffic and website usage information to help us understand usage and allow us to make improvements to the site. In all cases, our use of the information is not personally identifying, however, we may identify the user’s organisation via the domain name associated with the IP address. We use stored IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our servers and otherwise to administer the site and to collect aggregate traffic and website usage information.
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.
