Privacy policy

Gossip Shop (“Gossip shop", “we", “our", “us") is a trading name of Gossip. We respect the privacy
rights of our online visitors (“you", “your", “yours") and recognize the importance of protecting the
information collected about them. We have adopted a corporate wide Privacy Policy that guides how
we collect, store, and use the information that you provide us with.
The following information is provided by Gossip to enable our online visitors to be fully informed of
our Privacy Policies. Should we ask you to provide certain information, by which you can be identified
when using this website, you can be sure, that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy
statement. By visiting, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in
this Privacy Policy and the Terms & Conditions.
What personal information do we collect from you and how?
Gossip collects personal information in several ways when you place an order, buy a gift card for a
friend or register for a service offered by Gossip. By registering you are consenting to the collection
of your personal data. If an order is placed with us, we need to hold personal information including
your name, email, home address, shipping and credit/debit card billing address(es), phone numbers in
order for us to fulfill your order.
Saved card details will never be shared with third parties and will only be used to process your order,
using our payment partner's systems. Additionally we may also obtain information as a result of
authentication or identity checks. Sometimes we may ask for your telephone number, if not already
given. This number may be given to our courier for delivery services. These details allow us to process
your order and to let you know the status of your order.
How this information may be used, including anyone it might be shared with
Gossip may use your personal information for the processing of orders, payments and to provide you
with a personalized shopping experience. We will also use your details to fulfill and deliver your orders
and manage your account. Personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference
or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information. Your personal information
may also be shared with other trading divisions within Gossip. Where there is a legal obligation to do
so, we may disclose your information to any relevant regulatory body.
We may also use your personal information to send you marketing updates but only ever in accordance
with your preferences (as detailed in the next section). We do not sell your details to third party
marketing companies.
We do collect information about site traffic, sales, wish lists and other commercial information which
we may pass on to third parties but this information does not include any information which can
identify you personally.
Finally, we may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other
information which we think you may find interesting using the email address provided by you.
From time to time Gossip may also share your data with third party business partners to provide you
with targeted advertising. In such cases, these third parties will be subject to confidentiality agreements
and instructed by Gossip to comply with applicable data protection law.
