WHAT WE COLLECT, HOW AND WHY
For every account we collect the user’s name, email address, user address, shipping address, phone number, social media, country, company, login dates, transaction details, card details, order creation date, order time, and IPs. Your password is encrypted, for data protection, so it cannot be copied or stolen.

In addition to be able to get in touch with you and to send you personalised messages. You can always ask us to modify your information and you can reset your password at any time.
If at any time you wish to have your personal data removed from our service, you must permanently delete your account, but remember: by deleting your account you will lose all the content created/ uploaded in your account as well as any order information. We consider your active account as a consent for us to collect, process and store your data.
For obvious reasons, we keep track of transactions. We need to know what users paid for which products so that we can deliver / track for them. We do not store any sensitive card information however we do process card information or order creation over the phone. Even if you decide to delete your account we will still need to retain transaction details for accounting and statistical purposes. Every other information that is associated directly with your account will be permanently removed.
WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW
We never sell your data.
We share some of your data with various processors, including Google Adwords, Analytics, Worldpay, PayPal, Call logs, Linnworks and the UM website. Whenever you delete your account we will initiate a process that will remove your data from all these processors, if possible.
Disclaimer: In some cases it is physically impossible to distinctly identify specific users, when data is used collectively for research and statistical purposes.
If, at any time, you desire to get a file containing all the data that we have collected over time in regard to your account, let us know. You will need to allow us 30 days to process and honour your request. We will compile an archive for you containing login dates, IPs, transactions list, invoices as well as account information: screenname, profile name, email, account ID, first and last name, company and address (if known).
