Privacy Policy

CoolNovelties.co.uk is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains our data processing practices and your options regarding the ways in which your personal data is used. If you have any requests concerning your personal information or any queries with regard to our processing please contact us at admin@coolnovelties.co.uk.

Information collected

CoolNovelties.co.uk collects the details provided by you on registration together with information we learn about you from your use of our service and your visits to our web site and other sites accessible from them.

We may collect additional information in connection with your participation in any promotions or competitions offered by us and information you provide when giving us feedback or completing profile forms. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site use which enables us to improve the service we provide.

Use of your information and your preferences

We will use your information to provide and personalise our service and to detect and prevent fraud. We will also use your contact details to communicate with you. We may use your information to send you offers and news about CoolNovelties.co.uk.  We may contact you by post, email, telephone or fax for these purposes.  We will never pass your information on to a 3rd party.

Once you have registered to use Tesco.com, you will be provided with access to "your account" page that will allow you to tailor our communications to your preferences.

To change your contact preferences simply click "Your Account" in the top frame and click "Your Account". If you do not want to receive communications from us, please select your choices by using the boxes available on that page.

We like to hear your views to help us improve our service. From time to time, we may contact you by post, email, telephone or fax to ask your opinions. Again, if you do not want to be contacted for this purpose, please make your choice on the "Account Preferences" page.

We may use your information to verify your identity and prevent or detect fraud. In performing these checks your information may be disclosed to credit reference agencies, who may keep a record of that information. This is not a credit check and your credit rating will be unaffected.

Please note that there may be instances where it may be necessary for us to communicate with you, in any event, for administrative or operational reasons relating to our service.

Disclosures of your information

Your information will never be passed on or sold to 3rd party companies or organisations. We will never pass your personal information to anyone else, except where we are required or permitted to do so by law, for any successors in title to our business and suppliers that process information on our behalf both in the UK and abroad. We may also use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individual customers are identified) for marketing and strategic development purposes.

Other web sites

Our web site may contain links to other web sites which are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours.
