Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how www.moon-star.co.uk (the “Site” or “we”) collects, uses, and discloses your Personal Information when you visit or make a purchase from the Site.

Privacy Policy

 

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to provide you with an explanation about what we do with the personal data that we collect from you when you interact with us. In addition to information about how we handle it, and how long we store it, we will tell you about how we keep it safe. 

It’s important to note that we may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. 

 

When you visit our website

As part of our commitment to our customers, we collect data when you visit our website. This data may be how many visitors we have to individual pages, how many pages are visited and what the geographical location is of our visitors, using cookies or similar technology. 

The data may be shared with data processors such as Google Analytics, Facebook, Google Adwords, Pinterest, HotJar and possibly more. The purpose is so that we can understand what our customers want more of. Still, none of this data is personal – it is all anonymised and cannot be personally identifiable.

When an order is placed

As part of our service, we must collect information such as your name, billing and delivery address, phone number and email address. In addition to information about what you’ve ordered this information is used to make your delivery, confirm your order, process your payment and ensure fraud protection. 

We may share this data with third parties so they can provide services such as finance, warranty, repair or payment processors.

In some cases, we may need to contact other companies including shipping, name and address verification, market research etc. These companies only receive the information required to do their service, and we ensure that your privacy is protected and respected. They are not allowed to use this information or share it with anybody other than Moon Star Home Furniture by contract. 

For payment to be facilitated, your billing details are both encrypted and tokenised to ensure they are protected and passed through a payment gateway to providers. We do not save any payment or credit card information. 

To enable us to handle any warranties, repairs or returns, this data is kept for no more than ten years. At that time, the data will be either anonymised or deleted so it cannot personally identify you. 

 

Klarna

In order to be able to offer you Klarna’s payment options, we will pass to Klarna certain aspects of your personal information, such as contact and order details, in order for Klarna to assess whether you qualify for their payment options and to tailor the payment options for you.

General information on Klarna you can find here. Your personal data is handled in accordance with applicable data protection law and in accordance with the information in Klarna’s privacy policy.

 

You can opt to be forgotten

It is your right to be forgotten at any time. You can arrange this by requesting that any or all personal data that we hold on you is deleted at any time.  The only reason we would not do this for you is if it’s in breach of any regulatory or legal obligations we have, but we would inform you at the time if this were the case. 

If you have any questions regarding your data or this privacy policy, get in touch with us today.

Lawful basis

Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), if you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we process your personal information under the following lawful bases:

  • The performance of the contract between you and the Site;

  • Compliance with our legal obligations;

Services that include elements of automated decision-making include:

    The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.

    You can control and manage cookies in various ways. Please keep in mind that removing or blocking cookies can negatively impact your user experience and parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible.

For more information on how to modify your browser settings or how to block, manage or filter cookies can be found in your browser’s help file or through such sites as www.allaboutcookies.org.
