Your privacy and our promise
We take our responsibility to protect your privacy very seriously. That’s why we promise to never release your personal information to any third party company for their mailing or marketing purposes when you make a purchase on our website, or sign-up for teapigs marketing.
We will automatically unsubscribe you from all marketing communication if we haven’t seen any engagement from you for 16 months.
From time to time we will run competitions in partnership with a third party – always fully vetted by us to ensure they fit with our brand and would be of interest to you, our customers – in this circumstance we will offer you the opportunity to opt-in to that specific third party’s marketing. This is the only circumstance where this option will be available and it’s just that – an option.
When you shop on our website we collect information relevant to your purchase. This allows us to send your order, contact you in relation to your order (for example if your order is lost, an item is out of stock, payment hasn’t cleared etc.) and to pass your payment information onto our processing partners PayPal and SagePay. All of this information is stored securely and we comply with all applicable data protection and consumer legislation.
We store information in your account if you choose the “save my card details” option to allow this on your way through the checkout. This information (name, address, phone number, email address, payment information) is stored to allow an easier checkout process for you when you place future orders via the “express pay” feature.
We use data analytics tools to segment customer data and target marketing to customers who have opted-in. This is so we can send you relevant information if you’ve opted-in, rather than information you might not be all that interested in. Our ability to target continues to improve over time, so the information you receive will continue to improve in relevance. We also use this information to help us understand who our customers are and how to market to new potential customers.
