• We may also record certain details of how you respond to marketing emails we send you which may also automatically detect whether you have received or opened the email or clicked on a link in our marketing materials. We use this information for our own performance measurement, but also so that we can tailor our promotional messages and advertising to you.

With whom does Emolice share my personal information?
Emolice needs to share information with certain selected third parties in order to operate our business:
• Service Providers: We provide information to our service providers acting on our behalf (for example to companies that provide digital marketing services like email marketing, statistical analysis, business & operational insight, website optimisation), as well as to those third parties involved in the delivery chain (for example freight forwarders, couriers and delivery companies). On occasion, we also share personal information with our professional and legal advisors.
• Government Authorities: Where you order is due for delivery outside the UK, we may need to share information with customs authorities both in the UK and in the country of destination. We may also share personal information with law enforcement or other governmental authority, e.g. to report a fraud or in response to a lawful request.
• Credit & Fraud Checking: We may share information with credit reference agencies and with third parties engaged in fraud prevention and detection.
Emolice may also disclose personal information in cases where we believe the disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Emolice, our customers, employees or the public, or where we are otherwise legally permitted to do so.
Where does Emolice store my personal information, and how long for?
Emolice uses service providers based around the world. Consequently, your personal information may be processed in countries outside of Europe, including in countries where you may have fewer legal rights in respect of your information than you do under local law. If we transfer personal data outside the European Economic Area we will, as required by applicable law, ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected by appropriate safeguards. Please contact us if you would like more information about these safeguards.
Where we no longer have a need to keep your information, we will delete it. Please note that where you unsubscribe from our marketing communications, we will keep a record of your email address to ensure we do not send you marketing emails in future.

• Our payment partner utilises 128 bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption – the latest technology to encode and protect your data – which is your guarantee for a safe and secure transaction.
• Our website displays the McAafee Secure Certifications as an indication that the current information will be encrypted and that the site is free from malware, malicious links or phising. This means that your information is protected and safe to submit.
• Sensitive credit card information is not stored on our in-house systems.
