Privacy & Cookies Policy

Privacy Policy

Hi! This is our privacy policy and, if you landed here, it means that you want to learn how we process your personal data at Wink Design Ltd and how we protect your privacy. We won’t let you down! 

 

Essential information we collect 

In operating our store, it is essential for us to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our store. For example, this might include time-stamp, the last page or product you visited, the indication that you logged in. We do that in order to: 

● remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click; 

● monitor if our website is running with the high performance we are dedicated to providing; 

● let you browse between products without having to start back from the home page at each click; 

● remember if you put something in your shopping cart before you decide to checkout; and 

● control that your data is processed securely. 

We call the information mentioned above “essential information” and we collect it through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that most websites uses. A website places cookies in the web browser and then reads the information collected through the cookies every time the user performs an action. We use cookies. Without enabling this mechanism and this kind of cookies (first-party cookies), we could not provide you with the smooth experience that you expect while you are navigating. 

 

Information you expressly provide 

If you buy something from our store, we will need more specific information about you. To fully process your order and ship the merchandise you selected, we need your personal data such as your first and last name, your email address and your shipping and billing address. We also use your contact and order information to send you communication related to the processing of your order. We will ask you to provide this information in our “checkout page” before letting you finalise your purchase with the payment. 

 

Accounts

You can sign up for an account if you’d like. This will make us happy because it confirms your interest in our store. It should also make you happy because we will remember your information and, when you decide to buy our products, you do not have to provide all of your information over again -- you just have to log-in. Before registering your account, we will ask you to expressly provide your consent to this privacy policy. Only if you give us your consent, we will open your account. We also you the possibility to easily withdraw your consent and delete your account. Just contact us here: hello@wink-design.co.uk

Partial Purchases

If you have started to buy one of our products, but have not completed the purchase, you may have provided partial information, such as your email. In that case, we might send you an email to remind you about your interest. If you are not comfortable in receiving further emails of this kind, we will give you a simple opportunity to opt-out. Your privacy means a lot to us and we will stop sending you these communications right away. 

 

Reviews

If you have completed a purchase, we will send you an email to ask you to review the product you bought. We want to be sure that whether you love your purchase or have a complaint, you can share your opinion with other customers. We also use some specific information related to your visit, such as the timestamp of your visit, the page or the product you viewed, where you are coming from (if you came to our store because you clicked on an advertisement or you just opened our direct link). This is very similar to the “essential information,” but we use it to provide you with a personalized experience. The information on your visit provides us with insights on your interests and allows us to send you relevant communications. We capture this information through cookies, called a "beacon," that we allow you to block. You’ll find our cookie policy at the bottom of this page. 

 

Other uses of personal data

Any third party providers used by us (such as framing houses or professional printing companies) will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. 

 

How do we process your information? 

We use an external provider to run our store, BigCommerce. BigCommerce is based in the US and is a participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and committed to providing best-in-class service and data protection.

Payment

We process payments via Stripe, whose privacy policy can be found here: https://stripe.com/gb/privacy and Paypal, whose privacy policy can be found here: https://www.paypal.com/en/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full
