WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU AND HOW?
Chi • Chi collects personal information in several ways:
- When you visit any of our websites, and use your account to purchase, buy/or redeem vouchers online.
- When you make an online purchase, and check out as a guest (in which case we merely collect transaction-based data enabling us to send your purchase to you).
- When you register an account with us.
- When you engage with us on social media.
- When you contact us by any means with queries, complaints etc..
By registering an account, you are consenting to the collection of some of your personal data. If an order is placed with us, we hold personal information including your name, email address, phone numbers, home address, delivery and billing address(es) so that we can process and fulfill your order.
Saved card payment details will never be shared with third parties and will only be used to process your order, using our secure payment partner's systems. Additionally, we may also obtain information as a result of authentication or identity checks. Sometimes we may ask for your telephone number. This number may be given to our courier for delivery services. These details allow us to process your order and to let you know the status of your order.
In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. For example, we will use your purchase history to send you more personalized content. We also combine the shopping history of many customers to identify trends and ensure we can keep up with demand, or develop new products/services. We always keep such data anonymously.
HOW AND WHY WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Chi • Chi may use your personal information for the processing of orders, payments and to provide you with a personalized shopping experience. We will also use your details to fulfill and deliver your orders and manage your account. Personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information. Where there is a legal obligation to do so, we may disclose your information to any relevant regulatory body.
We may also use your personal information to send you marketing updates but only ever in accordance with your preferences. We do not sell or provide your details to third party marketing companies.
Finally, we may use your personal information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, together with non-personal data to monitor customer patterns so we can consistently improve the website design to better meet our visitors' needs. Again, we will use this data anonymously and in the aggregate.
The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of service and experience but if you choose not to share your personal data with us or refuse certain contact permissions, we might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for.
For example, if you’ve asked to be notified when and item comes back into stock, we won’t be able to inform you if you’ve withdrawn your general consent to hear from us.
