At Standing Stones, we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
This policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.
What information is being collected?
We obtain information about you when you use our website or social media channels.
The personal information we collect might include your name, address, email address, IP address and information regarding what pages are accessed and when.
If you make a purchase online, your card information is not held by us, it is collected by our third party payment processors (Shopify), who specialise in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions.
Who is collecting it?
We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf:
We may pass your information to our third party service providers, for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process payment transactions and/or send you marketing emails). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.
Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties not disclosed here, for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
