Nobody likes snooping. That’s why at Where Saints Go, we’re committed to ensuring your watertight privacy online whilst using our website. We’re also transparent on what information we collect from you, and what we do with it.

- First name

- Payment Details/Method
We collect, use, disclose, transfer and store personal information when needed to fulfil your order and for our operational business purposes.

Rest assured – we will not use this to individually identify you in any way, shape or form.

Now, did someone mention cookies?
Mmmm tasty… Ok, so the internet version of cookies isn’t quite as exciting, but we feel it’s important we keep you informed about our use of them.
So, what exactly are they?
Cookies are files containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both ‘session’ cookies and ‘persistent’ cookies on the website. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date (just like real cookies!)
We will use the ‘session’ cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the website, keep track of items in your shopping basket, prevent fraud and increase website security and other uses. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit and also to keep track of your preferences in relation to your use of our website.
Our payment services providers may also send you cookies.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third-party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer (version 9) you can refuse all cookies by clicking ‘Tools’, ‘Internet options’, ‘Privacy’, and selecting ‘Block All Cookies’ using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one, just to make you aware.
How we use your personal information
We get it. Nobody likes their personal information being passed around for the world to see, and so being secure with your personal details online is a top priority of ours. The level of trust we enjoy with you is sacred, and as part of keeping that trust, we like to lay our cards out on the table so that you know exactly what we are doing with your data.
We may use your personal information to:
Administer the website.

Send you our newsletter and other marketing communications relating to our business which we think may be of interest to you, by post or, where you have specifically agreed to this, by email or similar technology (you can inform us at any time if you no longer require marketing communications). This can be done by simply clicking unsubscribe on any email correspondence or in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 14 days for this to go through.

All of our website financial transactions are handled through our current payment service providers, Stripe and Klarna.
Need more info?
In order to be able to offer you Klarna’s payment options, we will pass to Klarna certain aspects of your personal information, such as contact and order details, in order for Klarna to assess whether you qualify for their payment options and to tailor the payment options for you.
In addition, we may disclose your personal information:
To the extent that we are required to do so by law.
In connection with any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings.
To establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).
To the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset that we are (or are contemplating) selling; and…
To any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
International data transfers
Please also note that you expressly agree to such transfers of personal information.
Security of your personal information
Now for the really important bit…
We will take reasonable, technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
We will store all the personal information you provide on our secure (both password and firewall-protected) servers.
All electronic transactions entered via the website will be protected by encryption technology.
You acknowledge that the transmission of information over the internet is inherently insecure, and that we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet.
You are responsible for keeping your password and other login details confidential. We will not ask you for your password (except for when you log in to the website).
This is also really important. It lets you know exactly where you stand, so don’t skim read this section!
Under GDPR (global data protection regulations), you have the right to instruct us to delete any personal information we hold about you, known as the ‘right to be forgotten’
This could apply where the processing is no longer necessary for the purpose, where the data subject withdraws consent, if the individual objects to processing undertaken for legitimate interests or where there are legal requirements to do so.
There are however, exemptions to this right. For example, the right to erasure does not apply if processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation. We will respond to any data erasure request within one month of receipt of the request.
We keep essential customer information from successful sales transactions as a legal requirement, and this will be kept for up to 7 years. We keep a first name, surname, email address and postcode from any failed orders you make.
This is used to contact you to offer help to complete your checkout and is automatically deleted after 6 months. You have the right to request any information we hold about you to be deleted before the retention periods stated above, and you can do this by submitting a written request.
If you would like us to stop sending you any marketing communication (including newsletters and promotions), this can be done by simply clicking unsubscribe on any email correspondence. Alternatively, you can do so by writing to email@example.com within 14 days.
