Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from www.soulwithaview.co.uk (the “Site”).

Payment Security

How Do I Know My Credit Or Debit Card Details Are Safe On Your Site?

We recognise that security is a major concern when shopping online. We have put a very secure system in place so you can feel completely at ease when shopping on our site.

When you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we only collect information from you that is necessary to fulfil your order. This information includes your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information, email address, and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.”

When you make a payment on our website you may provide payment information such as your credit/debit card or other payment details. We use secure form integration with a Payment Card Industry compliant third-party payment service (STRIPE) to process all credit/debit card payments. This means that any transactions occur on the secure server of STRIPE. All information you input is securely encrypted. No data concerning credit/debit cards is stored on our site. This does mean that you have to re-enter your card details every time you place an order with us, but this does ensure increased security.

You also have the option to pay through PayPal. Again, we do not store any credit/debit card/PayPal account information on our servers.

You have the option to create an account with the Site to make ordering quicker and easier. When creating an account you will be asked to give certain information, including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address and telephone number. This information is stored so that it is easier for you to make orders. When logged into your account you will be able to access and update the above information. You will also be able to view any previous orders.

We do not pass this information onto any third party.

Deleting Your Account

You may request that your account is deleted by emailing us at info@soulwithaview.co.uk and we will delete your account and all its data.

Once deleted, your data cannot be reinstated.

How Do I Know Your website is secure?

We take the the safeguarding of collection, transmission and storage of data very seriously.

We use industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology which allows for the encryption of personal information (our secure URL’s begin with https:// as opposed to http://). The security symbol of your browser (often shown as a padlock) will help you confirm that you are communicating with a secure server.

Our site is protected by online security, which offers us receive real-time information on the strength of our protection.

When sharing data with our website you should use a security-enabled browser.

If you do not use an SSL-capable browser then you are at risk of having data intercepted (this is standard good practice when accessing any website on the internet and should be followed at all times).

Most web browsers can notify you if you change between secure and insecure communications or send information over an unsecured connection. We strongly recommend that you enable these browser functions to help ensure that your communications are secure. You can view the details of the security certificate of the websites you connect to.

What Personal Information Do You Collect?

When you visit most websites certain information about your device is automatically collected.

On our Site this includes information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. 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.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

– “Cookies”

– “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.

– “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

You can, if you prefer, set up your internet browser to not accept cookies. You should still be able to use our site without having cookies enabled. However, this may affect the ability to carry out certain functions such as placing orders.

How Do We Use Your Personal Information?

We use the Order Information that we collect at checkout to fulfil any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations). We ask for a telephone number so that we can contact you quickly if there is any issue with your order that we need to discuss.

Additionally, we use this Order Information to screen orders for any potential risk or fraud.

We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimise our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

Also, we use PayPal as another payment option.

We use wix to power our online store.

We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site and this helps us to improve the user site experience. All of the IP data sent to google analytics is anonymised.
