How Poppy Austin uses your data
Having read of our intention to become and maintain a position as market leader in the global argan oil supply chain, you perhaps already understand that we are constantly striving to improve our service.
In order for us to deliver a customer experience that is second to none, we may store and process the information provided to us on your visit where legal parameters permit us to do so.
The data we gather may then be used in the following ways, but only for the promotion of our website, product and services in the spirit that the information was collected, to:
send you updates about your order, comments or any grievances you may have raised
provide you with e-mail broadcasts containing the latest news, views and gossip from the industry, as well as stock availability and lead times
occasionally ask for your feedback in relation to your experience here on poppyaustin.com or with your order and subsequent fulfilment via amazon.com
process and verify your subscription to our news or comment feeds for the videos, podcasts and articles we produce on a weekly basis
analyse and dissect visitor behaviour on our website so that we may enhance our service and overall customer experience for your future visits
We have partnered only with quality, relevant suppliers and distributors to bring the purest argan oil from Morocco to the market. Where we have created such JV partnerships, it maybe of mutual benefit to share your information.
In cases like this, or if Poppy Austin is acquired by another entity in the natural course of business, it is usual to collaborate on shared information of this nature.
With the exception of the above circumstances, we will never disclose your personal information for our own financial benefit nor for further distribution without first seeking your prior consent to do so.
Keeping your information safe
The majority of personal information passed from your PC/Tablet/Laptop/Mobile device to our organisation will be stored on our own secure servers, or on those of our email manager, Aweber. A minority may be printed and stored in equally secure manual filing systems.
No one can absolutely guarantee the delivery of digital information securely over the Internet due to its nature. Rest assured however, that we take privacy seriously and have done everything feasibly possible to ensure that both your information and ours is securely handled at all times.
As well as digitally protected electronic files, we have security conscious staff, all of whom have their data stored on our servers. They process inquiries as if they were handling their own personal information and exercise extreme caution when accessing your data.
Our integrity as a business is as important to us as your confidentiality; we would never knowingly do anything that would compromise either. This includes only keeping your information on file as long as the law permits.
