Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting and respecting the privacy of all visitors and users of Beta Shoes Ltd. We believe that:

• Data protection and privacy is a human right

• We have a duty of care towards you, our user

• We will not keep data more than which is absolutely necessary

• We will never rent or sell your personal information

• We dislike spam as much as you!

Legislation we follow

Our privacy policy is designed to comply with the following national and international legislation:

UK Data Protection Act 1988 (DPA)

EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR)

What information do we collect and why?

Tracking site visits

Like most websites, we use Google Analytics (GA) to see and understand how you interact with our website.

Although GA keeps track of your data, such as location, device, cookies, and operation system, we are not privy to this information. We consider Google to be a third party processor.

Sign up information

Information that you enter in this website includes registration, searches, orders, wish lists, or requesting further services. The information you give us may include, without limitation, your business details, name, address, email, telephone number, product and style interests, and transaction details.

These details are all stored on our website, which is built on Magento. You can see their privacy policy here. We do intend to change this system to a pseudonymous manner, meaning we will try to create an ID to link to your details in order to anonymise you further. However, this will be achieved in the future.

If you contact us through email, your messages will also be present in our servers.

Giving your information to third parties

The only people that will receive the information you give to us are logistics companies. They need your name, address, and sometimes contact details and your order’s packing list in order to deliver the goods to you.

We currently use the below companies. We consider them third party processors as well, and they all comply with the legislation we follow above. You can see the links to their GDPR privacy policy below.

Royal Mail – privacy policy here.

APC – privacy policy here.

Contact forms and emails

If you contact us through our contact form, found here, your information won’t be stored on the website, or to any third party processors. Instead, the information will be collated into an email, and sent over to us via Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). Our SMTP servers are protected by SSL, meaning email content is encrypted using SHA-2, 256-bit cryptography before being sent across the internet. This is then decrypted by our local computers and devices. However, not all emails are this way, so it would be best to consider emails an insecure medium. Do not include personal or sensitive information within an email.

Using your personal information

Overall, we may use your personal information for:

• carrying out our obligations, contractual and other, including order processing and services;

• updating our marketing databases;

• allow you to participate in interactive features within our website, such as social media features;

• carrying out market research and analysis of Beta Shoes’ performance, including the effectiveness of our advertising;

• notify you of any relevant changes to our goods, services and policies;

• improve the internal operations of our website, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing and research;

• confirm your age and identity to prevent fraud;

• keeping this website safe and secure; complying with applicable law; enforce all our websites terms and agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of Beta Shoes Ltd., our customers or others.

Disclosing your personal information

Overall, we may disclose your personal information:

• to business partners, suppliers and other third parties as necessary for the performance of the contract, for example, delivery and payment purposes;

• in the event of Beta Shoes buying or selling any business or assets to the relevant party;

• to protect our customers and this website from fraud or theft by passing on personal information required for identity checks to law enforcement agencies involved in fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. Please note that these third parties may retain a record of the information provided to them for this purpose;

• in order to comply with any legal obligations;

• in order to enforce or apply the terms and agreements in this website.

Information from children

Beta Shoes is committed to preserving all the privacy of the visitors of this website, including children. This website does not knowingly collect information about children, or sell products to children. If you are under the age of 16, you are not permitted to use or submit information to this website.

Storage and security of your personal information

The data we collect from you may be transferred to, stored at, and processed at destinations outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Staff operating outside the EEA may work for Beta Shoes or one of the third parties we work with. They may be involved in activities such as the fulfilment of your order, processing your payment and support services.

We will take all reasonable steps to ensure security of your data in accordance with this Privacy Policy, including strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. However, internet transmission of data is not entirely secure so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your data; any transmission is at your own risk.

Beta Shoes uses trusted third party payment processing services to process your payment. We do not store your credit/debit card information. If you elect to have your credit/debit card information saved on this website for future ease, this will be stored with our trusted third party payment processor.

All personal information is encrypted using secure socket layer software (“SSL”) via your registered account on this website. This technology prevents you from inadvertently revealing personal information using an unsecure connection. This website is certified with an SSL certificate, which verifies that this website is secure.

Data Breaches

We will report any unlawful breaches of data to all relevant authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it seems as though any personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
