The "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) legislation is the basis for our data handling procedures and how we process your personal data.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
When you provide personal information such as your name and email address via our website forms, you agree to us contacting you regarding your enquiry.
When you purchase from Founders Antiques we will collect the information we need to be able to process your payment securely via SSL encryption, fulfil your order and to communicate with you regarding your order. Personal information gathered when a purchase is made on our website will be held indefinitely unless otherwise requested. This allows us to verify your purchase in the future and therefore provide ongoing long-term support. You may request for your data to be deleted at any time by emailing us at email@example.com
Website usage statistics are collected that allow us to monitor website trends. We use Google Analytics to help us monitor and understand how our website is being used. Data collected in this way is held for 26 months in order to allow us to analyse website usage trends over time.
If you sign up via a website form or place an order we will occasionally send you communications via email that might be of interest to you. You can unsubscribe from this list at any time.
How We Protect Your Information
Your data is stored securely at all times.
When you make a purchase online, we use a secure server. Our SSL encryption means that all information sent to us is encrypted.
Our Lawful Basis for Processing Your Data
Consent - If you consent to us collecting your personal data.
Legitimate Interest - If you provide us with personal data requesting us to contact you regarding your enquiry.
Contractual Necessity - If you make a purchase via our website and provide us with the relevant personal data required to fulfil your order.
Transfer of Personal Data
We will share your personal information with other organisations only where it is necessary to complete a transaction, fulfil an order or provide support as requested. It goes without saying that we will never sell your information.
Such third parties are authorised to use your personal information only as necessary to allow us to process transactions, fulfil orders and manage delivery. These third parties are prohibited from using your personal information for any other purposes, including (of course) promotional purposes.
How We Use Google Analytics
Google Analytics monitors the way in which our website is being used so we can make improvements. Using Google Analytics means we pass just your IP address to Google. We are in turn able to access various usage reports from Google.
