BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA

The main basis for processing personal data is so that we can enter into and fulfil a contract to supply goods to you or your nominated recipient. Our use of personal data will include sharing your personal data with our payment system provider (STRIPE) and nominated delivery companies.

Personal data typically collected from you includes, but is not limited to:

First and last names of purchaser, billing address, contact telephone number and e mail address

First and last names of recipient, delivery address, contact telephone and e mail address

When you register an account with our Owners Club your personal details are recorded as are any items that you have purchased directly from Omersa and Company Ltd. You are also able to update this record for any Omersa animal purchased/gifted from another source. You have the right to object to us processing your personal data in this way. To do this, you can contact us by either in writing or by e mail to the addresses given above.

Where you have provided personal data about another person, for example, where you order goods as a gift to be delivered to someone else. We need to process such personal data with delivery companies in order to be able to provide them with the goods you have ordered from us. Please ensure you have the recipients permission to provide us with their personal information.

For items being exported from the United Kingdom, a full commercial invoice accompanies the supply of goods which will contain your personal data. This information is required by the recipient country for the purpose of raising customs duties and collecting payment.

We process your personal data to respond to your queries received by e mail, written letter or by telephone. We maintain a record of these queries to provide you with the best level of service we think you the customer would expect from us.

We use your personal data to process payments/refunds and to prevent fraudulent transactions.

Your personal data may be used to resolve issues with, develop, test and improve our website.

There are special situations in which we may need to share access to your Personal Information without your explicit consent. For example, to comply with our contractual or legal obligations to share data with law enforcement, to prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the website, to protect the personal safety of users of the site or public, and to protect against legal liability.

For marketing purposes where you have expressly opted in to receive marketing communications from us, for example when registering an account, we will process your personal data to provide you with marketing communications in line with the preferences you have provided.

Where you have provided us with your name and address, you may receive promotional material from us from time to time through the post.

You are not under any obligation to provide us with your personal data for marketing purposes, and you can withdraw your consent to your personal data being processed in this way at any time by contacting us or, where relevant, by following the unsubscribe link in every marketing communication you receive from us. If you do choose to withdraw your consent, this will not mean that our processing of your personal data before you withdrew your consent was unlawful.

If our business is sold, personal data held by Omersa about its customers will be one of the assets transferred to the purchaser. The legal basis on which we process your data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to ensure our business can be continued by a purchaser. If you object to our use of personal data in this way, the relevant seller or buyer of our business may not be able to provide good and/or services to you.
