You don’t have to give us any of this personal information but if you don’t, you may not be able to buy from Contrado Imaging, and you are unlikely to receive our optimal overall customer experience.

We also anonymise and aggregate analytical information (so that it doesn’t identify you) and use it for purposes including testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our site, and developing new products and services.
 

Sharing your information

We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party. We value and maintain your trust. However, we share your data with the following categories of companies as an essential part of being able to provide our services to you, as set out in this statement:

We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and web analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.

If you contact us via e-mail or via the contact form on our website, by fax or by telephone, the data you have provided (e.g. your email address, name, phone number and possibly other data) will be saved with our customer service web host for a period of 90 days. This is so that we can answer your questions or to process your requests. Our customer service web host is not able to use or monetise your data at any point.

We are working closely with all companies and service providers to ensure that our privacy policy and your data are always protected.
 

Marketing Messages

If you have said we can, we’ll send you marketing messages by email, text, to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products.
 

How to stop marketing messages from Contrado Imaging

You can stop receiving marketing messages from us at any time.

You can do this:

Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages.

Please note that, as Contrado Imaging comprises a system of many inter-connecting services, it might take a few days for all our systems to be updated, so you might get messages from us while we process your request.

Stopping marketing messages will not stop service communications (such as order updates or where you have expressed an interest in an activity at Contrado Imaging, for example new designers).
 

How to stop marketing messages from Contrado Imaging Marketplace

Our marketplaces have a separate system for marketing preferences to our main websites. All Contrado Imaging members have the option to receive marketing communications from marketplaces and/or selected third parties.

If you’re a seller, you will automatically receive a marketplace newsletter, with content tailored to your store.

If you decide you no longer want marketplace marketing communications, you can opt out by visiting ‘My Details’ in the Contrado Imaging marketplace website or you can click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any marketplace email.
 

Seeing adverts for Contrado Imaging online

We also engage in online advertising, also to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products.

Like many companies, we target Contrado Imaging banners and ads to you when you are on other websites. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience service.

The banners and ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of Contrado Imaging (for example, your search history, and the content you read on Contrado Imaging websites) or on Contrado Imaging banners or ads you have previously clicked on.
 

Keeping your information

We’ll hold on to your information for as long as you have your account, or if it is needed to be able to provide the services to you, or (in the case of any contact you may have with our customer care team) for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.

If reasonably necessary or required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, we may also keep hold of some of your information as required, even after you have closed your account, or it is no longer needed to provide the services to you.
 

Your rights

You have a lot of rights relating to your personal information:

If you want to exercise your rights, if you have a complaint or if you just have questions, please contact us.
 

Changes to how we protect your privacy

We may change this page from time to time, to reflect how we are processing your data.

If we make significant changes, we will make that clear on Contrado Imaging websites or other Contrado Imaging services, or by some other means of contact such as email, so that you are able to review the changes before you continue to use Contrado Imaging.
