I will only keep your information for as long as I are either required to by law or as is relevant for the purposes for which it was collected.
You can visit the Site and browse without having to provide personal details. During your visit to the Site you remain anonymous and at no time can I identify you unless you have an account on the Site and log on with your user name and password.
1. Data I collect
I will use the information you provide to enable me to process your orders and to provide you with the services and information offered through my website and which you request. Further, I will use the information you provide to administer your account with me; verify and carry out financial transactions in relation to payments you make online; audit the downloading of data from my website; improve the layout and/or content of the pages of my website and customise them for users; identify visitors on my website; carry out research on my users’ demographics; send you information I think you may find useful or which you have requested from me, including information about my products and services, provided you have indicated that you have not objected to being contacted for these purposes. Subject to obtaining your consent I may contact you by email with details of other products and services. If you prefer not to receive any marketing communications from me, you can opt out at any time.
I may pass your name and address on to a third party in order to make delivery of the product to you (for example to my courier or supplier).
Payments that you make through the Site will be processed by Cora's Knit Knacks. You must only submit to me information which is accurate and not misleading and you must keep it up to date and inform me of changes.
Other uses of your personal information
I may use your personal information for opinion and market research. Your details are anonymous and will only be used for statistical purposes by Cora's Knit Knacks. You can choose to opt out of this at any time. Disclosing your email address is only necessary if you would like to take part in competitions. I save the answers to my surveys separately from your email address.
I may also send you other information about me, the Site, my other websites, my products, sales promotions, my newsletters, anything relating to other companies in my group or my business partners. If you would prefer not to receive any of this additional information as detailed in this paragraph (or any part of it) please click the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any email that I send to you. Within 14 working days (days which are neither (i) a Saturday or Sunday, nor (ii) a public holiday in the Netherlands) of receipt of your instruction I will cease to send you information as requested. If your instruction is unclear I will contact you for clarification.
For any competition I use the data to notify winners and advertise my offers. You can find more details where applicable in my participation terms for the respective competition.
Third parties and links
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I will use connections with a privacy shield (e.g. google docs).
What are Cookies?
Cookies and flash cookies are small files that are saved on your data carrier which store specific information about your preferred settings and any other data that my system needs when interacting with your browser. There are two different kinds of cookies: session cookies, which are deleted the moment you quit your browser; and temporary/permanent cookies, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period of time or, in some cases, permanently.
Cookies help me to tailor my website to suit you and to reflect your tastes and your browsing habits. They also allow me to save any information you have entered so you don’t have to enter it all again the next time you visit.
What kind of cookies does Cora's Knit Knacks use?
Most of the cookies I use are session cookies which are deleted at the end of your browser session. I use these to allow you to use my shopping basket function across more than page of my site, for example. I do use some cookies that remain on your computer after you have quit your browser. This kind of cookie enables my system to recognize that you’ve visited my website before and to remember which settings and products you preferred. These temporary/permanent cookies have a lifespan of around one month to ten years, after which they will be automatically deleted. These cookies allow me to collect and analyze data to come up with strategies to improve my website. This makes my website easier to use for my customers and helps me provide you with personal recommendations of products you may like. My aim is to offer you a fun, easy shopping experience on a website that is tailored to your tastes.
