What information we hold about you.

If you have bought something from us we will have your email address, phone number, address. All payments are processed by PayPal or WorldPay so no details such as credit/debit cards are stored on our system. If you choose to deliver items to a third-party (such as a friend) we will have their name and address. Information is only used to help us deliver the parcels and contact you. You may also optionally decide to receive our newsletter and special offers.

We also maintain an order history of your purchases. This allows you and us to track your deliveries and review your past purchases. We may offer you a reward for purchases or make an offer we think you might like based on your order history. We also collect information of a general nature about how many 'hits' our website gets. And we monitor the site traffic patterns; this tells us which areas of the site are being visited more than others. It also helps us build a more useful site in subsequent re-designs. We don't track individual users pathways through the site. Our site also uses 'cookies'.

Cookies

Cookies are small amounts of data sent to your web browser by a webserver. They cannot harm your machine in any way as they are small textfiles with simple information in them. You can see them as small textfiles inside your 'Temporary Internet Files' folder in Windows. Our cookies keep track of the items in your shopping basket and act as place markers when you move around the site. We also use software to track general browsing behaviour on our website. This means that we can build up a picture of the most popular areas and paths through the site and any problem areas, though we don't use it on a personal level to track individuals and their behaviour.

If you experience problems with our site when you try to buy items - this can be caused by security settings in your web browser. If you have set your Security Settings in Internet Explorer to 'high' you have disabled cookies. Our site uses cookies to provide some features such as the Shopping Cart and My Account. To use the site you will need to set the security level for the internet to Medium (under Tools/Internet Options). This is for "Safe browsing but still functional". Alternatively you can add www.beautyworldonline.co.uk to your list of trusted sites. Should you wish to turn off cookies in your browser, your browser's help menu should tell you how to do this, but this will, of course, affect some of the features of our site and therefore your shopping experience.

What we do with your information.
