Gatehouse Candles is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This policy explains how we use the information we collect about you and the procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.
The information we collect and how we use it
When you register with us and/or place an order, we need to know your name, delivery address, e-mail address and telephone number. This information allows us to fulfil your order and notify you of the status of your order.
We may also ask you to give us optional contact information, for example your fax number and demographic information like your age or sex.
If you subscribe to our mailing lists for new release and other information, you will be asked to specify the areas in which you are interested so that we can tailor the information which we send to you to cover the topics and merchandise which we believe you might be interested in.
We may also use your information for the purpose of providing you with information about any special offers or features of our web site which we think may be of interest to you and for related marketing purposes.
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web site. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and your details on our database.

PUSH internal procedures cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.
Non-disclosure to third parties

This is subject to the proviso that we may disclose or transfer your data to a partner company where you have supplied information via a site which is co-branded with that partner company or to members of our own group. If personally identifying data about you may be shared with a partner company, we will tell you before we collect or transfer the data so that you may opt out of this transfer if you wish.
We use your information only as set out in this Policy and will not sell, rent or pass your information on to others for marketing purposes without your express consent.
