Our Privacy Policy.

We are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our website visitors and newsletter subscribers. In particular, we want you to know that we are not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. We just don’t think that’s right. In this Privacy Policy, we set out how we treat data that we collect from website visitors, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others, and how we keep it secure.

Section 1 – Collection and use of personal information

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as, your name, phone number, email address, or mailing address. When you browse our site, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

When you choose to submit an enquiry form, we collect your personal information. We use that information to tell you about things you’ve registered an interest in and to contact you if we need you to provide additional information. Submitting a contact form does not opt you into our mailing list.
When you subscribe to our mailing list, we will send you emails about our services, resources and other updates.

Section 2 – Consent

When you provide us with personal information, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you at anytime, by contacting us at warren@browncreative.co.uk or mailing us at: Brown Creative Limited, 36 Fyfield Close, Wantage, Oxfordshire, OX12 8HN

Section 3 – Your rights

Under the Data Protection Act 1998 and GDPR you have the following rights:
• to obtain access to, and copies of, the personal information that we hold about you;
• to require that we cease processing your personal information if the processing is causing you damage or distress;
• to ask us not to send you marketing communications.
• to require us to erase your personal information;
• to require us to restrict our data processing activities;
• to receive from us the personal information we hold about you which you have provided to us, in a reasonable format specified by you, including for the purpose of you transmitting that personal information to another data controller; and
• to require us to correct the personal information we hold about you if it is incorrect.

Please note that these rights may be limited by data protection legislation, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply. If you are not satisfied with how we are processing your personal information, you can make a complaint to the Information Commissioner. You can find out more about your rights under data protection legislation from the Information Commissioner’s Office website

Section 4 – Disclosure

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Business.

Section 5 – Third-Party Services
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act. Once you leave our website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

When you click on links on our site, they may direct you away from our site. We cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, and the privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. We encourage you to read their privacy statements.

Section 6 – Security

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
