Information we collect from you

We may collect, store and use information about your visits to the Site and about your computer, tablet, mobile or other device through which you access the Site. This includes the following information:

  • technical information, including the Internet protocol (IP) address, your login information, your browser type and settings, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, and geographical location; and

Information we collect about you from other sources

We may also collect information about you from other sources, such as commercially available sources.

We use analytics tools, Facebook Pixel and Google Adwords Conversion Tracking on our Site. These tools automatically collect information about you when you click on one of our ads displayed on Facebook or alongside a Google search and any other participating ad networks. This is called a “conversion”.

What we do with your information

We use your information:

  • to carry out any orders you place online on our Site or in person;
  • to provide you with information that you request from us; and
  • to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.

Where it is in our legitimate interest to do so, we use your information:

  • to administer our Site including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;
  • to improve our Site to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer, mobile device or other item of hardware through which you access the Site;
  • as part of our efforts to keep our Site safe and secure;
  • to measure or understand the effectiveness of any advertising we serve to you and others, and to deliver relevant advertising to you; and
  • from time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes.

Where you have given us consent, we shall provide you with information about any new products, services, events, promotions, special offers and other information which we think will be of interest to you. You can withdraw your consent at any time, but without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. You can update your details or change your privacy preferences at any time by contacting us as given in “Contacting us” above.

If you make a purchase of our products on the Site we may publish your first name and geographical location for marketing purposes on our Site. If you would prefer that we did not use your name and geographical location in our marketing banner you can contact us at any time to opt out of this feature by using the details as given in “Contacting us” above. You can also update your details or change your privacy preferences at any time by contacting us as given in “Contacting us” above.

We use this information to direct our adverts to you and to ensure that our adverts are personalised to your interests, such as our products you have recently searched for.  We also use these tools to measure the results of our ads.

You can opt out of ad personalisation from Google and other participating ad networks by turning off Google Adwords Conversion Tracking here: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.

Disclosure of your information to third parties

Our Site is hosted on Shopify Inc (“Shopfiy”). They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall. For more insight, you may also want to read Shopify’s Terms of Service (https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms) or Privacy Statement (https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy).

We may share your personal information with our business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors to enable us to carry out any contract we enter into with you.

Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect of the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. Once you leave our Site or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use. 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.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties where it is in our legitimate interest to do so including for the following reasons:

  • in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
  • if all or substantially all of Hera London’s assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal information held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets; or
  • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information in order to comply with any legal obligation; or
  • to enforce or apply our Terms of Use or to establish, exercise or defend the rights of Hera London, our customers or others.

We may share your personal information with third parties  who, whilst not essential for our business to operate, enhance your experience of our Site and your usage of the Services. For example, we use Facebook Pixel and Google Adwords Conversion Tracking to personalise the ads you see on Facebook and on a Google search or any of the other participating ad networks.  We recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these third parties.

Save as set out in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell your personal information or disclose it to any third parties without your consent.

Security of your information

We are committed to ensuring that your information is safe and take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

The data that we collect from you will be transferred to, and stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application at a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By submitting your information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Any payment transactions will be encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

How long we keep your information

We will keep your data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or for as long as we are required by law.

Your rights

Access to your information and updating your information

You have the right to access information which we hold about you. If you so request, we shall provide you with a copy of your personal information which we are processing. For any further copies which you may request, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs.

You also have the right to receive your personal information in a structured and commonly used format so that it can be transferred to another data controller (“data portability”).

We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.

Right to object

Direct marketing

You have the right to object at any time to our processing of your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

Where we process your information based on our legitimate interests

You also have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal information which is based on our legitimate interests. Where you object on this ground, we shall no longer process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Your other rights

You also have the following rights under data protection laws to request that we rectify your personal information which is inaccurate or incomplete.

In certain circumstances, you have the right to:

  • request the erasure of your personal information erasure (‘right to be forgotten’);
  • restrict the processing of your personal information to processing to which you have given your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of others.

Exercising your rights

You can exercise any of your rights as described in this Privacy Policy and under data protection laws by contacting us as given in “Contacting us” above.

Save as described in this Privacy Policy or provided under data protection laws, there is no charge for the exercise of your legal rights. However, if your requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, we may either: (a) charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or taking the action requested; or (b) refuse to act on the request.

Where we have reasonable doubts concerning the identity of the person making the request, we may request additional information necessary to confirm your identity.

Cookies

In order to improve the Site, we may use small files commonly known as “cookies”. A cookie is a small amount of data which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (your “device”) from the Site and is stored on your device’s browser or hard drive. The cookies we use on the Site won’t collect personally identifiable information about you and we won’t disclose information stored in cookies that we place on your device to third parties.

By continuing to browse the site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

If you don’t want us to use cookies when you use the Site, you can set your internet browser not to accept cookies. However, if you block cookies some of the features on this Site may not function as a result.
