Introduction

Although privacy policies can look somewhat boring, they're important. We take safeguarding your personal information very seriously. You can be sure that we do not, and never will, sell any of your personal information, or release it to anyone without your consent.

We want to be open and transparent with our visitors.

How we use your information

This privacy notice tells you what to expect when CRISSCROSS Furniture Ltd [CRISSCROSS] collects personal information.

Like all U.K. businesses, we're governed by the Data Protection Act 1998. It means you can see what personal information we may hold and ask us to change or delete it.

Visitors to our websites

When someone visits www.crisscrossfurniture.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be upfront about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it. For more information, please visit Google Analytics' privacy policy. You can also opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics at: www.tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Access to personal information

CRISSCROSS tries to be as open as it can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act 1998. If we do hold information about you we will:

  • 1. give you a description of it;

  • 2. tell you why we are holding it;

  • 3. tell you who it could be disclosed to; and

  • 4. let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.

To make a request to CRISSCROSS for any personal information we may hold you need to put the request in writing to the address provided below.

Disclosure of personal information

We do not, and never will, sell any of your personal information. We will not disclose personal data without consent. However when we investigate a complaint, for example, we will need to share personal information with the individual or organisation concerned and with other relevant bodies. Further information is available, about the factors we consider when deciding whether information should be disclosed, by contacting us using the details below.

You can also get further information on:

  • 1. agreements we have with other organisations for sharing information;

  • 2. circumstances where we can pass on personal data without consent, for example, to prevent and detect crime and to produce anonymised statistics;

  • 3. our instructions to staff on how to collect, use and delete personal data; and

  • 4. how we check that the information we hold is accurate and up to date.
