What information do we collect?
When you place an order, we may ask you for certain information and you may submit personal data to Garage Shoes (for example your name, phone number, postal address, email address and contact details). We may also record which products you purchase as well as customer traffic patterns and site use.
This information will be kept securely in accordance with our internal security policy and may be used to:
- Process your order
- Provide you with up to date, efficient, and reliable service
- Help fraud prevention i.e. we check card details with our credit agency and reserve the right to refuse orders on that basis
- Open and run your account
- Provide a more personal shopping experience
By placing an order and submitting your data you agree to this use.
From time to time we may also monitor and record phone calls for training purposes and to improve this service to you.
We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.
Garage Shoes will not send you any marketing emails or pass your information on to third parties unless you give us consent, or unless we already have it.
If you have used the garageshoes.com web site before or have ordered products from Garage Shoes before it is possible that we have this information already and it is being used to contact you about offers, events, items or related activities that you may find useful. If you are an existing customer we will continue to keep you informed unless you tell us not to. If you are a new customer we will give you the choice (for example once you have placed an order) whether or not you want us or other reputable companies to contact you about future offers, events and new products or related activities that you may find useful.
From time to time we may want to share data with other trustworthy and reputable companies both within and outside the European Union who we may think have interesting offers and information for you. If you no longer wish us to do this please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
If you indicate to us that you would NOT like to receive information from third parties then we will not pass on your data to any other third parties but if you are an existing customer we cannot control those who presently have it.
In order to improve our service we may use a device known as a ‘cookie’. Cookies are a means by which information relating to your Internet activity (such as whether you have visited Garage Shoes before) is recorded on your hard drive and used by us to improve the website and the products and services available to you.
