Who do we share your information with?

 

We may share your personal information with our group companies, our service providers and professional advisors, our business partners, and if we are legally required to.

 

We may share your personal information with:

  • any member of our group, which means our group companies, including our ultimate holding company, and its subsidiaries and/or our subsidiaries who may support our processing of personal information under this Notice. If any of these group companies use your information for direct marketing, we will only transfer information to them for that purpose with your prior consent.
  • our service providers, organisations who support the services we offer through the Site and only process your personal information on our behalf, following our instructions and data protection law.

   Service providers help us with things like:

  • website and data hosting,
  • website and application analytics and search engine providers,
  • managing marketing lists,
  • sending emails and other correspondence,
  • customer service and feedback,
  • invoicing and payment processing,
  • credit reference agencies (only if we need your credit score for our due diligence checks)
  • IT support.

 

Our service providers will only use your information to provide their services to us.

  • if we run surveys, competitions, promotional campaigns, offers or other activities and you opt-in with a partner (for example, if you chose to enter a prize draw we manage with a partner organisation). We will provide more detailed privacy information at the time.
  • potential investors, or if we sell or buy any business or assets then a potential seller or buyer.
  • our auditors, legal advisers and other professional advisers.
  • anyone that we must disclose information to in order to protect our rights, property, or safety, our customers, or other third parties, and to enforce our rights under this Notice or under any agreement (for example, our Terms) with you. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of detecting and preventing fraud, credit risk and cyber-crime.
  • if required to do so under a court order or if we are (or believe we are) under a duty to comply with any legal obligation. This includes exchanging information with law enforcement agencies, regulators, or other similar government bodies.

 

Where we store your information?

 

We are based in the United Kingdom. We may transfer your personal information outside the UK (or, if you are in the European Union ("EU") or European Economic Area ("EEA"), outside of the EU/EEA):

 

  • to store it, and so we can provide our Site, products and services to you.
  • where we are legally required to do so.

We may also store your information with third parties who work with us to help us to provide our services to you.

 

If we transfer your information internationally, we will take steps to ensure your information is legally protected.

 

How do we protect your information?

 

You're in safe hands. We protect your information in various technical, organisational and contractual ways:

 

  • we use technical security measures (for example, end-to-end encryption or multi-factor authentication), and
  • we take steps to make sure that only people who need to use your data have access to it, and that our staff understand how use personal data responsibly and keep it safe.
  • we require our service providers to contractually promise to take steps to protect the data we give them (including limiting the data we share, and requiring confidentiality commitments).
  • We work to avoid personal data breaches, but we are prepared if a breach does happen. We will notify you, and any applicable regulator, of a breach if we are legally required to (if it's higher risk breach, we might need to notify, but if it's a lower risk breach, we may not need to tell you).

What if we link to other websites?

 

We may link to other websites (including apps). The websites will have their own privacy information, which you should read before using or sharing personal information with the site.

We are not responsible or liable for these websites, any content on them, or their policies and notices. A link does not mean we endorse the views of the linked website. We have no control over the availability of any of these websites.

How long do we keep your information for?

 

We usually don’t keep your information for any longer than we need to, but we might keep it for longer if we need to fix an issue or keep records.

We will usually keep personal information:

  • for as long as necessary for the original reasons we collected it (for example, for as long as you have an account with us), and
  • for up to six years after that to identify any issues and resolve any legal proceedings.

We may keep your personal information for longer:

  • if you complain (so we keep our complaint records for long enough),
  • if we know about pending or current legal proceedings, or reasonably believe there is a chance of legal proceedings,
  • in some circumstances, if applicable law says we are required to.

If you opt-in to marketing from us and later change your mind (or object to any other use of your personal information), we may keep a record of your opt-out or objection for longer so we can demonstrate we respect your preferences.

 

We may combine and anonymise individuals' information, and we may keep anonymised information indefinitely.

 

How can you control your personal information?

If you are in the UK or the EU, you have rights over your personal information (just so you know, these aren't absolute). Please ask us and we would be happy to help.

 

If you are in the UK or the EU, you may have the right to:

 

  • find out what information we hold about you.
  • ask us to provide you with a copy of your information.
  • ask us to make changes to your information.
  • ask us to correct, delete, limit or stop using your information.
  • ask us to move your information to a third party.
  • change your mind about us holding your information (or sending you marketing).

These rights are not absolute – if a right doesn't apply, or only applies to some of your information or some of the things we do with it, we'll let you know as part of our reply to you.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights over your information, you can contact us at info@elvdenim.com. 

If you have any concerns, you have the right to make a complaint to a data protection supervisory authority.

  • If you are in the UK, the supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). You can visit their website at ico.org.uk.
  • If you are in the EU, you can find your local data protection authority here.
