WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
You will give us information about yourself, such as your name, address, email address, telephone numbers, financial and credit card information when you create an account online. If you do not give this information, we may not be able to provide goods or services to you.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We may use your personal information to process your transactions, to administer your account, for our own internal purposes (such as risk management, staff training and billing), to help us to develop our site to be more available and user friendly to our customers, and for any other use associated with such purposes or which you may authorise.
In addition, we may use the information to promote and market our products and services, or the products and services of others.
Some uses of your personal information may involve transfer of the information overseas.
You always have the choice not to receive marketing information. To opt out, please click the unsubscribe button at the bottom of any of our emails.
Helmsdale Hives does not store your credit card information.
WILL WE DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION WITH OTHERS?
We do not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others.
However, we do need to share your personal information with third parties who perform services on our behalf, such as delivering packages, sending mail and emails, credit checking and processing payments. They will have access to your personal information needed to perform these services, but we will not authorise them to use your personal information for other purposes.
In addition, we may provide statistics, with personal identifiers removed, about our customers, users, sales, traffic patterns and related site functions to reputable third parties. We may use service providers to assist us to aggregate and anonymise this information, so that it does not include any information from which individuals can be identified. We do not consider this aggregated and anonymised information to be personal information and, accordingly, its use is not subject to this policy.
We may also disclose your personal information under such disclosure as required by law.
