Privacy Policy

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

This privacy policy is to let you know how momsownmilk.com promise to look after your personal information. This includes what you tell us about yourself, what we learn by having you as a customer, and the choices you give us about what marketing you want us to send you. This notice explains how we do this and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

OUR PRIVACY PROMISE


We promise:

To keep your data safe and private.

Not to sell your data.

To give you ways to manage and review your marketing choices at any time.

Our policy complies with UK law, including that required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

SECTION 1 - THE BASES ON WHICH WE PROCESS INFORMATION ABOUT YOU.

The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.

If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.

If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.


1.1. Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you.

When you create an account on our website, buy a product from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us. As part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.

In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us.

We may use it in order to:

  • verify your identity for security purposes

  • sell products to you

  • provide you with our services

  • provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website

We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us.

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

1.2. Information we process with your consent

Through certain actions when you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

When otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, products and services, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.

Wherever possible, we aim to obtain your explicit consent to process this information, for example, by asking you to agree to our use of cookies.

Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.

With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.

Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website.

If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful.

We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.

You may withdraw your consent at any time.

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at mom@momsownmilk.com.

However, if you do so, you may not be able to use our website or our services further.

1.3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests.

We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.

Where we process your information on this basis, we do after having given careful consideration to:

  • whether the same objective could be achieved through other means;

  • whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm;

  • whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would, in the round, consider it reasonable to do so.

For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:

  • record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business;

  • responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response;

  • protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so.

SECTION 2 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

SECTION 3 - SPECIFIC USES OF INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
