INTERNET SITE PRIVACY POLICY

This website is owned and operated by Need 2 Store (“Need 2 Store”, “our”, “we” or “us”). Need 2 Store is the controller of all personal information collected on this website.

We believe strongly in protecting the privacy of all website users (“you”, “yours”) and this notice sets out how we use your personal data.

By registering on this website or otherwise, you consent to the collection, use and transfer of your personal information under the terms of this privacy policy.

What data (“personal information”) do we gather from you?

We gather personal information such as first and last names, business addresses and email addresses that you provide voluntarily when you fill in appropriate sections of our website. For example when you complete our respective purchasing and selling forms in order to enquire about products you wish to purchase or sell, and when you request details of our products and services, you provide us with personal information which we hold and use for the purposes set out in the next section.

Use of your personal information

Our main aim in gathering your personal information is to provide you with a customised service.

If you fill in your details on our respective purchasing and selling enquiry forms, we use your personal information in order that we can contact you and respond to any questions, enquiries and needs that you may have. We use your personal information so that we can carry out your requests. If you purchase or sell products and services by telephone or face to face, we collect data so that the products and services can be ordered and supplied to you as efficiently as possible.

We may also use aggregate personal information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop the website and our products and services and may provide such aggregate personal information to third parties. These statistics will not include any data that can be used to identify any individual.

If, at some time in the future, we wish to use your personal data in ways other than those set out in this privacy notice, then we will notify you about this and seek your permission to do so.

Sharing of personal information

We may share personal information within the Need 2 Store family (“Need 2 Store Family”); by this expression, we mean the Need 2 Store group and each and any of its subsidiaries, together with their respective officers, employees, agents, distributors, consultants, suppliers and certain selected companies. The Need 2 Store Family will process your personal information in accordance with this privacy policy and all privacy and communications legislation

Those selected companies are either our partners who perform a function relating to our purchasing, selling, promotions and/or offers, or are agencies and suppliers whom we have retained to assist us to more effectively fulfil orders, manage and conduct our business generally, provide technical assistance and support and perform other functions to support our marketing activities.

All selected companies may have access to personal information if needed to perform such functions, but will only be permitted by us to use such personal information for the purpose of performing that function (which may include one to which you have expressly given your consent) and not for any other purpose.

In order to provide products and/or services to you, we do envisage our wishing to transfer personal information about you outside of the European Economic Area. In the likely event we should wish to do so, we will only do so to the extent that it is permitted under all privacy and communications legislation applicable within England. Of course if we need your specific and express consent to do this, we will obtain it before transferring any personal information.

In all cases, any use of your personal information by the Need 2 Store Family which has been instigated by us (as opposed, for example, to a promotional partner), will comply with this privacy policy.

Occasionally, with your permission and depending on the purpose for and context in which you gave that permission, we will send to you by one or more of telephone, fax, automated telephone call, e-mail, SMS text message or other electronic means marketing information and news , for example, relating to new product offerings, loyalty schemes, special offers, competitions and other promotions and offers. This may include our sending to you marketing information for the products or services of a promotional partner on that partner's behalf.

 

However, in every case, if you do not elect to receive such communications or if you elect to discontinue receiving them, then we will not send or will cease sending them to you. Also, we reserve the right to use or disclose any personal information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to protect the integrity of the site, to fulfil your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement or regulatory investigation. Save for this, we do not sell, transfer or disclose personal information we have collected from you in connection with our web site activities, to third parties outside the Need 2 Store Family.

Please note that if we are, in turn, a promotional partner of an unrelated company (for example where we are not asking you to submit any personal information to us but are simply providing personal information on our site) and a link exists to that other company's web site where one must visit to take part in that company's promotion, offer or other activity, then the privacy policy of that other company will apply instead of ours.

Whilst we make every effort only to tie-in with reputable companies which have a similar high regard for your privacy, you should make sure you are aware of what their privacy policies say, as we are not responsible for the policies and practices of other companies, including those of other members of the Need 2 Store Family.

If, in the future, a third party acquires Need 2 Store or substantially all of its assets (whether by merger, acquisition, reorganisation or otherwise) customer data, including personal information, may well be one of the transferred assets.
