We currently collect and process the following information:

  • Personal details (for example name and contact information)

  • Delivery information

  • Online identifiers such as IP addresses and cookie identifiers

  • Employee data

  • Where colleagues provide consent we will collect criminal offence data (DBS checks) 

  • CCTV Images of people and vehicles at our offices located at the address above

How we get the information and why we have it:

Most of the information we process is provided to us directly by you so we can fulfil your order or request, send you marketing information because you have opted in or to help you with an enquiry.

We also receive data to process from third parties, this could be the case where we fulfil orders on someone else’s behalf or if a school is creating a yearbook or entering a competition.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:

  • Consent

  • Contractual obligation

  • Legitimate interest

We use the information that you have given us in order to:

  • Process any orders that you place with us and process any returns

  • Provide you with access to an account

  • Fulfill requests made by you

  • Provide customer service to you 

  • Inform you about products and services that may interest you

In order to achieve the above we may share your information with:

  • Other Bonacia brands

  • Delivery partners such as Royal Mail, Hermes, Amazon or alternatives

  • Payment processors such as PayPal and Braintree

  • IT Companies who help support our business systems for example servers or data storage facilities

  • Email sending companies such as Mailchimp or Ontraport which enable us to stay in touch with you

Sending your personal data outside the EEA:

Our day-to-day operations are based in the UK and your personal information is generally processed, stored and used within the UK and other countries in the European Economic Area (EEA).

If it is the case that your personal data is to be processed outside the EEA we will ensure there is an appropriate level of security so your personal information is protected in the same way as if it was being used within the EEA.

How we store your information

All personal data is held within Bonacia's secure network which uses 'per user' based access control, or on our secure Amazon servers.

Each brand within Bonacia has its own dedicated folder structure, which ensures that only those Bonacia employees who need to see any personal information can.

How long we keep your information

How long we keep the information we collect about you depends on the type of information, the purpose for which it was originally collected, the instructions of a controller when we act as a processor, and the requirements to comply with applicable laws.

Once the retention period has expired, the information will be securely disposed of or permanently deleted.

Under data protection law, you have rights including:

  • The right of access - You have the right to ask us for copies of your personal information
