 .Privacy policy

You can always trust at House of Tara London. Our Privacy Policy describes how we collects, uses, and discloses your Personal Information when you visit or make a purchase from the Site. We always treat it with the highest standards of security and confidentiality, and rest assured, we never pass on, sell or swap your information with any other company for their own marketing purposes.

WHAT INFORMATION WE HOLD ABOUT YOU

When you shop with us, join our  newsletter club, register for an online account, ask us to keep in touch with you using your email address or mobile number, or choose to receive our catalogues, we collect certain information about you, as well as your device. We also collect information about you when you voluntarily complete any of our customer surveys, provide us with feedback or participate in our prize draws and competitions. 

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?

Your information allows us to fulfil any orders you place with us, update you on the progress of your orders and assist with any future customer service queries.

We would also love to keep you up to date with our favourite products, exciting new ranges and unmissable offers we think will be of interest, by contacting you by post and using your email address to send you our email newsletters, communications via social media and any similar internet-based communications as they become available.

If you already receive our marketing communications, we’ll continue to send you these unless we think you are no longer interested in hearing from us or you ask us to stop. We hope you enjoy hearing from us just as much as we enjoy putting our updates together, and we promise never to bombard you with too many communications.

If you join our newsletter club, you’ll receive our special club communications featuring exclusive discounts, offers and rewards. Again, we’ll continue to send you these communications unless we think you are no longer interested in hearing from us or you ask us to stop.

We may use your information, including details of your House of Tara London purchases, how you choose to interact with us, your recent House of Tara London website browser history and geographic information, to help us decide what we talk to you about and when. If you receive our email marketing communications for example, we use a tracking pixel to identify email opens, which helps us to keep our email mailing list up to date by highlighting any customers who for whatever reason have not opened one of our emails for a long time. We may also use your information to create profiles of, for example, our most loyal customers, or to identify key interest groups. Ultimately, we want to make sure that our marketing communications and offers are always relevant and interesting and this information will really help us achieve just that. Your information also helps us to tailor our advertising to those people who we think will really enjoy shopping with us too.

There are some communications that you’d always expect to receive from us, whatever your marketing preferences – for example, order confirmations by email if you have shopped with us online, or important order or customer service updates.

We employ the services of other companies to support our business for specific functions, for example: dispatching orders (using nominated parcel carriers); processing payments (using nominated payment providers); despatching House of Tara London marketing communications (using a small number of postal and digital communications service providers); and validating and analysing our customer data, including potentially updating addresses if customers have moved house (using a small number of nominated data specialists). If you order products from our website that are highlighted as will be despatched directly from our suppliers, we’ll securely transfer your details on to these suppliers so that they can fulfil your orders. For certain purchases, we may need to verify your identity with a trusted third party for fraud prevention and age verification purposes, in order to protect your interests and fulfil our legal obligations.

To deliver our products and services to you, we may need to transfer your data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), for example if you are requesting delivery overseas or our service provider is based outside the EEA.

All third party service providers we work with are carefully vetted and highly trusted by us, and your data is protected by House of Tara London's stringent security and confidentiality measures as well as applicable data protection laws. We only provide our service providers with the data that they require in order to perform the services that we have employed them to do – they will never use your data for any other purposes.

Unless otherwise stated, our processing of your personal data, as summarised in this notice, is in pursuit of our legitimate business interests as a trusted retailer, committed to providing you with the very best shopping experience.
