At Laffinage we take your privacy very seriously and we promise to never share or sell your personal information.
You can explore the Laffinage website without entering any of your personal details. However, if you decide to buy some of our amazing cheese or products, enter a competition or sign up to our newsletter, then we will need you to provide some personal details.
When you buy something from our site your payment will be handled by Stripe, so we will not be able to see the full details of how you have chosen to make your payment. We will have access to your name, address and email address so that we can send you the products that you have bought, or get in touch if we require further information from you.
If at any point we provide links to external websites, we ask you to remember that we are not responsible for any of the content or for the protection of any personal information given whilst visiting these sites.
What personal data do we collect and why do we collect it?
When you purchase products from laffinage.co.uk we collect your name, billing and shipping address, email address & phone number. We also collect transaction data – such as paypal or credit card which is fully encrypted. We use Stripe and Paypal to process our webshop payments. We collect and store information about your order history with us so that we can help resolve customer support queries if you contact us about your order, and to help us provide loyalty rewards to customers who regularly shop with us. Our legal basis for this is Legitimate Interests.
When you sign up to our mailing list we collect your name and email address. We also collect information about how you interact with your email, so we can improve our user experience.
