Privacy Policy

Data Protection

Cosocial is committed to protecting all personal information that we collect and hold, and we comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws openly and transparently. We have policies and procedures in place covering our data protection responsibilities to ensure we follow the data protection principles and process all personal information fairly and lawfully in a way that respects your rights under the United Kingdom (UK) Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA). This commitment includes compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2016/679 as implemented in the UK as part of the DPA and compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

When we gather personal information from you, we will ensure that what we collect is adequate, relevant, and not excessive to our needs. We take care to ensure your personal information is accurate and up to date, used solely for the reasons for which it was collected and retained only for as long as is necessary. We will not transfer any personal information outside of the UK or European Union (EU) unless the country receiving your information has the same or higher data protection standards than those in the UK and EU.

This privacy policy relates to our use of any personal information you provide to us via any means, including via this website, by electronic mail, telephone, message service, via written correspondence, and in person.

If you have any questions regarding our privacy policy, please contact us via the website “Contact Us” page.

Use of Personal Information

Our legal basis for obtaining, holding, and processing personal information via this website is as follows:

  • We process personal information where necessary for the performance of a contract;
  • If you contact us to make a general enquiry, we use your personal information to respond to your query and provide the information you have requested.

We collect the following information from you using a secure third-party provider (stripe.com) to process payments when you place an order:

  • Name;
  • Contact information including email address, postal address, and phone numbers;
  • Delivery postal address;
  • Payment details, including payment card details and billing address.

We access the contact and delivery information for the performance of our contracted services. No payment details are accessed and remain private between you and the third-party payment processor.

At our discretion, we may disclose your personal contact information to third parties such as delivery companies to fulfil our contractual obligations. 

We only keep personal information for as long as we have a use for it or are legally obliged to keep it. Personal data held in our electronic and paper filing systems is destroyed or deleted when it is no longer required.

We will not sell, share, distribute, or disclose your personal information without your consent unless it is necessary to deliver our services or believe a regulator or law enforcement agency requires it or to comply with any other applicable legal obligation safeguarding.

We do not process any special categories of personal information, and we do not undertake any automated processing or profiling of any personal information.

We use SSL encryption to protect personal information online and in transit to and from this website.
