What information we will ask for
During the course of our association, for any items ordered through our online shop, we will request personal information from you which could include:
- Name and address.
- Contact information including email address.
For any tattoos booked through the website, we may also request you to send photographs showing the area you wish to be tattooed or pictures of existing tattoos.
We will only ever ask you for information that is essential for us processing your order and in particular for the following reasons:
- Primarily for contacting you regarding any issues directly relating to your order.
- Internal record keeping.
We may use the information to improve our products and services. We may occasionally send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
We do not store any payment information for our clients. All payments are processed through PayPal, by cheque or by bank transfer where we do not have access to your card details.
Who has access to your information
Each of these businesses understand the importance we place on our customer’s privacy and have agreed that any contact they have with your information will be strictly based on carrying out their essential duties and that they may not keep any records themselves.
