Privacy Policy for the Reindeer Company Ltd

This Privacy Policy describes how and when we collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from us, contact us, or otherwise use our services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control. You should be able to view their privacy policies via their websites.

Information we collect

We hold personal details (Name, address, contact details, etc) of people who have given us this information willingly because they have expressed an interest in the reindeer and related products. We rely on a number of legal bases to collect and use information, including contractual and legitimate interest. Individuals have given us their details whilst expressing interest in the reindeer or a related product, and we will only use this information to enable us to provide services and products that they would conceivably have an interest in.

The majority of personal details are given to us by people joining our annual adoption scheme. This information is held on a secure database and is used purely to administer our adoption scheme, including sending out adoption packs, twice-yearly newsletters, and contacting members of the scheme to keep them up to date with information specific to their reindeer, including special offers. Members of the scheme are asked if they would like to continue their support when it expires after a year, and if they do not respond we will not contact them again.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

The personal information we hold is never passed on to any third party for marketing. It is only used by the Reindeer Company Ltd, and selected third parties such as Paypal and delivery companies as needed to process your order.

If any individual requests that information about them is updated or erased, we will do this immediately, upon verification of their identity.

We do not hold or process special category data.

Legitimate Interests Assessment

Legitimate interest: Reindeer-related products and services

Necessary processing: Contact details are required to deliver our products and services.

Balance against interests, rights & freedoms: Details are only used by our company to offer/provide services and products relating to the reindeer, which customers have expressed an interest in. If any individual requests that information about them is updated or erased, we will do this immediately, upon verification of their identity. We give our customers the option to ‘opt-out’ of any marketing.

We rarely contact individuals for any purpose outside of the explicit reason they gave us their data for. There is a low to non-existent risk of any person objecting to being contacted as it is related to their expressed interest. Our use of data should never result in a risk to individuals.
