2. Who We Are

Our company name is Belles and Babes Limited.

Our registered address is 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, United Kingdom, WC1N 3AX.

Our nominated representative is Emma Gillespie.

For the purposes of the GDPR we are both a 'data controller' and a 'data processor'.

 

3. What we may collect

We may collect and process the following data about you:

  • Your name.

  • Your contact details including email address, telephone number and home address.

  • Your subscription preferences when you sign up to our newsletter, and how you use our emails - for example whether you open them and which links you click on.

  • Your IP address, and details of which version of web browser you used.

  • Information on how you use the site, using cookies and page tagging techniques.

  • Any information you send to us when you request an appointment, for example your size, baby’s age or size, and details of the styles and items that you are looking to hire.

  • Any information that you provide to us via telephone or email, which again includes questions, personal preferences and contact details.

4. Why we need to process your personal information

The GDPR requires us to have and explain a lawful basis for processing your personal information. In most instances, for example where you have booked an appointment or requested a service via our website, we enter into a contract with you at this point and we process your data in order to fulfil that contract. Any personal data stored by us will be deleted (or, where stored on paper, destroyed by shredding) once this contract is complete. 

In other cases, such as where you have subscribed to our newsletter, or where you have browsed our website and accepted our Use of Cookies (by clicking 'I accept' on the pop-up), we process your data because you have given us consent to do so, either to provide you with our newsletter or for the purposes stated below.

We will endeavour to ensure that all third parties which process your data (such as Wix and Paypal) also do so lawfully, and where possible that your personal information will also be deleted from these services either when our contract with you is complete or when the information is no longer needed (for example, for accounting purposes).

5. How we use what we collect

We use information about you to:

  • Deliver our service, for example to contact you regarding your subscription or to find out additional information, and to ensure that we can provide you with the best possible service by sourcing the items that you are looking for.

  • Send you information that is relevant to your subscription.

  • Send you newsletters if you have opted in to receive them.

  • Improve our services and the way we deliver them, for example if you make suggestions or tell us that you are looking for something that we don’t provide.

  • Respond to any feedback you send to us, if you’ve asked us to.

  • Improve our website and associated social media accounts e.g. Instagram, Facebook.

 

Your personal information may be passed on to third parties, but only for the purposes set out in this policy, for example Google Analytics will process certain information in order to tell us how you use our website. We may also pass on your personal information if you have given us permission to do, or if we are required by law.

www.bellesandbabes.co.uk is hosted by Wix, who may also pass on your personal information to third parties in line with their privacy policy for the purpose of facilitating or enhancing their business only. You can view their privacy policy here.

We will never pass on your personal information to third parties for any other purposes such as marketing.

We will never contact you for marketing purposes unless you have opted in to our newsletter, and you can request to be removed from our newsletter at any time by emailing bellesandbabesuk@gmail.com.

When we receive your data we are committed to ensuring that it is stored securely and in order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

Your data may be stored on servers outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may be processed outside the EEA to fulfil your order and deal with payment.

Payment is processed by PayPal and will be encrypted.

7. How we use Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site.

We use cookies to recognise you and your preferences, improve our site's performance and collect analytical information for ourselves and our business partners.

'Session cookies' allow us to track your actions during a single browsing session, but they do not remain on your device afterwards.

 

'Persistent cookies' remain on your device between sessions. We use them to authenticate you and to remember your preferences. We can also use them to balance the load on our servers and improve your experience on our site.

Session and persistent cookies can be either first or third party cookies. A first-party cookie is set by the website being visited; a third-party cookie is set by a different website. Both types of cookie may be used by us or our business partners.

If you want to delete or block any cookies, please refer to the help and support area on your internet browser for instructions on how to locate the file or directory that stores cookies. Information on deleting or controlling cookies is also available at www.aboutcookie.org (note that this website is not provided by Belles and Babes Limited, and we therefore cannot ensure its accuracy, completeness or availability). Please note that deleting our cookies or disabling future cookies or tracking technologies may prevent you from accessing certain areas or features of our services, or may otherwise adversely affect your user experience.

 

8. Your rights

You may request details of personal information which we hold about you, request to update it if you think it may be inaccurate, or request that we stop processing and/or delete your personal data if you believe that we are processing or storing it unnecessarily.
