How we comply with privacy and GDPR
We respect all people's rights, dignity, and self-sovereignty.
We do not collect more information than we need. That is, we collect and retain only enough information to provide sufficient support for our customers.
We do not pass on personal information to third parties, except to immediately fulfill orders. In which case, only pertinent information is given, being the details of the order that the supplier is to fulfill, and the delivery information.
We do not sell your personal information to individuals or corporations
We do not give your personal information, or access to your account to law enforcement or governmental authorities, unless they have supplied adequate request, for instance, a warrant issued by a judge. Where possible, a lawyer will be consulted before compliance. Where possible, we will inform the customer or third-party company that such a request had been made if it had been complied with or not.
We do not trade with known criminal organisations, and we will cease operating with a company and individuals if we learn of their criminal activity.
Our customers can request their own personal information, but only after proving their ownership of it (typically by sending the request using the email address we have on record). Under the right to be forgotten principles, our customers can request to have all their data deleted. Where possible, we will request any associated companies that may have your data to also delete it, however, we can never guarantee that company will indeed comply. If it becomes known to us that a company has breached our trust, we will take reasonable steps to sanction the company.
We will do everything we can to ensure data is secured, and all access is encrypted. However, no system is 100% guaranteed. In cases where we know that there had been a breach of security, we will inform our customers at the earliest possible time. We urge all customers to use adequate security at all times online. If our customers or associated companies become aware of privacy or security issues relating to Andrew Blyth's business operations, please inform us immediately so that we can take appropriate action to safe guard everyone.
