When you place an order with us we need to know your name, email address, telephone number, delivery address and payment details. We collect information about you for two reasons: firstly, to process your order, and secondly to keep you up to date with its progress.
We may collect and process the following data about you:
Information that you provide by filling in forms on a Fragrance Expert Website. This includes information provided at the time of registering to use a Fragrance Expert Website, subscribing to our service, posting material or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information when you enter a competition or promotion sponsored by us.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
We may also ask you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.

The internet is not a secure medium but we have put in place various security procedures to keep your personal information confidential. These cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.
Because the internet is global, your information may be transferred outside the EEA (European Economic Area) to countries that do not have similar data protection legislation during use as set out in this policy. However we have taken the steps set out above to keep your information secure. By submitting your information you consent to these transfers.
