Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. We follow stringent procedures to ensure we work with all personal data in line with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with TLS encryption. Encryption makes it difficult for unauthorised people to view information travelling between computers. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear in the address bar of modern web browsers.

 

On modern web browsers, by default, the site uses TLS encryption to protect all data you submit to us, and web pages we send to your browser. You can check you have a secure connection, and see more information in modern web browsers by clicking on the padlock icon in your address.

Access and update the information we hold about you

We will never lease, distribute or sell your personal information to third parties unless the law requires us to. Any personal information we hold about you is stored and processed under our data protection policy, in line with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018.

You have the right to Subject Access Request  and the ‘Right to be forgotten’. Please email shop@stonepail.com if you would like any of those two.
