Bibi Design treats your privacy very seriously. The following statement explains our policy regarding the personal information we collect about you:
1. Statement of intent
From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself (e.g. name and email address) in order to receive or use services on our website. Such services include newsletters when making purchases or further information about our services.
By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable Bibi Design to provide you with the information and services you select. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy. Our services are designed to give you the information that you want to receive. Bibi Design will act in accordance with current legislation and aim to meet current internet best practice.
2. Information on visitors
Any information that is supplied by cookies can help us to provide you with a better service and assists us to analyse the profile of our visitors. For example, if on a previous visit you went to, say, the ‘Cushions’ pages, then we might find this out from your cookie and highlight scarves on a second visit.
Both the cookies and the embedded code provide non-personal statistical information about visits to pages on the site, the duration of individual page view, paths taken by visitors through the site, data on visitors’ screen settings and other general information. Bibi Design uses this type of information, as with that obtained from other cookies used on the site, to help it improve the services to its users.
3. What is a cookie?
When you enter a site your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie. Cookies are text files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their site in order to track traffic flows.
Cookies themselves only record those areas of the site that have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time.
NB: Even if you haven’t set your computer to reject cookies you can still browse our site anonymously.
4. Use and storage of your personal information
When you supply any personal information to Bibi Design (e.g. to receive further information) we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly; that is, we must explain how we will use it (see the notices on particular web pages that let you know why we are requesting the information) and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else. In general, any information you provide to Bibi Design will only be used within Bibi Design. It will never be supplied to anyone outside Bibi Design without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged by law to disclose it.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
5. Access to your personal information
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information Bibi Design holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected.
