Website browsing & traffic data

What we do with your information: general
If you wish to buy something from us, we will request your name, email address, phone or mobile number, and address. If you are ordering blinds on behalf of a third party and therefore need to supply their address instead, this is the address we will require. All of this information is only used in the processing of your order, and to arrange for one of our trade partners to measure and install your blinds for you. You may also decide to sign up for our newsletter, in which case we will receive your email address. This will only be used to send you our newsletter and news of special offers.
In addition to processing your order, we also maintain a record of the purchases you make from us. This allows us to track your deliveries and to review your past purchases.
What we do with your information: marketing

We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where we store your information
LuxuryBlindsDirect works with trusted trade partners to fulfil your order. LuxuryBlindsDIrect oversee the printing and manufacturing of your blinds, whilst your nearest trade partner will visit your home to measure your windows and later fit your blinds. Due to the involvement of trade partners, we will need to pass your details on to your local trade partner once you have chosen to make an appointment. By choosing to make an appointment, you are agreeing to this.
