The following Privacy Policy governs the online information and data collection practices of 3 Princesses and 1 Dude! (“me” or “I”). Specifically, it outlines the types of information that I gather about you while you are using the www.3princessesand1dude.co.uk website (the “Site”), and the ways in which I use this information.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting and using the Site, you agree that your use of my Site, and any dispute over privacy, is governed by this Privacy Policy. Because the Web is a growing and evolving space, I may need to change my Privacy Policy at some point in the future, in which case I’ll post the changes to this Privacy Policy on this website and update the Effective Date of the policy to reflect the date of the changes. By continuing to use the Site after I post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified.

How I Collect and Use Information

This Site only contacts individuals who specifically request that I do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive my email communications. This Site collects personally identifying information from my users during online purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration to receive our newsletters and name, email address, postal address, and credit card information when purchasing my products or services. All of this information is provided to me by you.

I also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, I may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows me, among other things, to improve the delivery of my web pages to you and to measure traffic on the Site. I also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help me deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit my site, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages. Details of how to disable cookies on your own web browser can be found in my Cookies Policy for 3 Princesses and 1 Dude!

The information that you give to me directly on the site (e.g. within comments on blog posts such as your name and email address) is never shared or added to any mailing lists. Information relating to purchases made through this website is stored on my website only. This is to enable me to complete your order, and also prevents you from having to re-enter your details during your next purchase. You may request to have your details removed from my website storage once your purchase is complete by emailing me at oneluckymummy2013@gmail.com

To ensure the security and safety of this site, I create quarterly backups of all information on this site, which are held in a zip file within my own email server. Each backup file is deleted in full when the next one is created.

The Site also includes links to websites I recommend or work with on a collaborative basis, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties, whose privacy policies I do not control. Some of the links I provide are “affiliate links.” This means if you click on the link and purchase the item connected to that link, I will receive an affiliate commission at no cost you. When you access another website or purchase third-party products or services through the Site, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting, or the provider of such products or services.

Be aware that I may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of users of the Site or the public.

Please also note that as my business grows, I may buy or sell various assets. In the unlikely event that I sell some or all of my assets, or my website is acquired by another company, information about my users may be among the transferred assets.
