SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, phone number, address and email address.  This personal information is legally processed by ourselves and our platform partner under the following two conditions:

  • consent of the individual (That you have agreed to give us this information for the purpose of placing an order)
  • contractual necessity (That we would be unable to ship an order to you without this information).

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.
Email marketing: We use a separate third-party GDPR compliant service called Mailchimp to collect and store customers email addresses when a purchase is made.  Customers are asked to opt-in to this service and can unsubscribe at any time.

Under GDPR, consent to process your personal information must be explicit and provable.  By placing an order on this website, or making an account with us, you agree explicitly to allow us to process the information you choose to provide in order to create you account and process your order.  The proof of this consent will be in the form of the account being made or the order being placed.   If you did not create an account, or place an order - you can contact us at sales@f-jas.co.uk and we will permanently and completely erase the personal information we hold for you. 

This information is stored indefinitely, for the purpose of keeping your account open and easily accessible for you in the future.  You may ask us to delete your account and personal information at any time.

We may share your personal information with our suppliers, service providers and other contractors for the sole purpose of being able to fulfil orders you place with us and to provide the services you request.

SECTION 2 - CONSENT

How do you get my consent?
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.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

How do I withdraw my consent?
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 sales@f-jas.co.uk or mailing us at:

SECTION 3 - 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 4 - Big Commerce Inc

Our store is hosted on Big Commerce Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Big Commerces data storage, databases and the general Big Commerce application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Payment:
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

SECTION 5 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they 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.
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.
