At Peps & Pooks we are committed to protecting your privacy and personal information at all times during your shopping experience with us. Your personal information is processed in accordance with English law and we will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties.

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from www.pepsandpooks.com

By visiting https://www.pepsandpooks.com you are consenting and agreeing to the terms set out in the Privacy Policy below.

Personal information

Our shop platform is run by WooCommerce. When you visit the shop,  automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Your data is stored by WooCommerce itself. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.” This Device Information is also collected by our analytics package Google Analytics. As with all retail websites, we collect personal information when opening your account, processing your orders and when you sign up to receive promotional emails.

We use cookies (electronic tags) to monitor your browsing and buying habits on our site, for example, which pages are visited, and whether they are purchased from. If you have registered with us then your computer will store an identifying cookie which will save you time each time you revisit Peps & Pooks, by remembering your email address for you.

The information stored in cookies is anonymous and secure. It cannot be used to identify you personally and cannot harm your computer. You can change the settings on your browser to prevent cookies being stored on your computer without your explicit consent.

We automatically collect information such as your browser IP address to make shopping with us easier, for example, remembering your log-in details.

When you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, WooCommerce and our payment gateway Paypal collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers which is held as encrypted data, stored only as long is necessary to complete the transaction at which point it is removed), email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.” If you make multiple purchases from us, this order information is linked under one customer profile.

At the time of purchase if you choose to ‘opt-in’ to our email marketing system, or if you sign up by completing a newsletter sign up form on site, your name and email address will be stored under our marketing campaign manager website; MailChimp. You can access their privacy policy information here.

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

Any information we collect about customers’ browsing and buying habits is used to improve our website and the products and services offered to our customers. It also assists us with the detection and prevention of fraud.

Can you opt out of receiving marketing communications?
You can unsubscribe from our database at anytime. If you wish to be removed from the list please contact us by email contact@pepsandpooks.com with “Unsubscribe” as the subject of your email, or use the unsubscribe link on our promotional emails.
