Privacy Policy

Your privacy is extremely important to Stoned Affection, and the ways in which it's stored and viewed can be quite confusing, so this page is intended as a straightforward breakdown of all you need to know.


We collect anonymous statistics about your visit, like which of our pages you viewed.

Some 3rd parties such as Facebook and Twitter may know you visited this website if you came to us via a link on there (Facebooks Shop section for example). We can’t control them but we don’t believe this knowledge poses any threat to you.

We will never share your data with 3rd parties.


Measuring our visitors

We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records what pages you view within our site, how you arrived at our site and some basic information about your computer. All of that information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; just that somebody visited our site.

The information we collect from analytics helps us understand what parts of our sites are doing well, our main demographics and target audiences, how people arrive at our site and so on. Like most websites, we use this information to make our website better.

Stoned Affection is hosted via the e-commerce site BigCartel - which collects data on the amount of visitors we recieve, but no data on specific customers - like yourself! It also collects which of our products are viewed the most.


Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the “Like” and “Tweet” buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say “x of your friends like this”. We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you’re viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). 


If you make a purchase

When you make a purchase we will record specific personal information about you, such as your name, home address and email address. 

These will be emailed to us via our E-Commerce website and also via Paypal.

We NEVER recieve any of your card details or payment information.

These emails are deleted on a 3-monthly basis. This is to ensure that if there are any postal issues, they can still be investigated within Royal Mails time limit (i.e. lost parcels.)

All postage receipts containing your Home Address are shredded on a 3-monthly basis too.


Emails

You will recieve an automated email once your order has been put through from Stoned Affection, via our E-Commerce hosting site Big Cartel.

We personally will only ever send you an email once your order has been posted - this is sent via stonedaffection@live.com. 

In some cases you may need to be contacted about your order, again this will be via stonedaffection@live.com.

We will never provide your personal information or email address to any third parties except where they are specifically employed to help deliver our own services, as detailed above.


Online payment

The only Payment method we use are PayPal (to process credit cards and accept payment via PayPal). PayPal will have access to your personal and payment information. When paying by credit/debit card, Stoned Affection does not have any access to your card details, and never will.


Updates to this policy

We may update this privacy policy from time-to-time, particularly as technology changes. You can always check this page for the latest version. We may also notify you of changes to our privacy policy by email.
