privacy statement

Our Privacy Policy details the types of personal data we may collect when you purchase products, create accounts and/or request catalogues or newsletters via our website, telephone or post with us here at Inside Adventure.

Due to the changing nature of data protection it is highly likely that we will be changing and amending our privacy policy to ensure we comply with all regulations in the future. We will notify you of any significant changes, but you can obviously come back and check them via our website whenever you wish. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the changed privacy policy unless you notify us that you wish to unsubscribe

why we need your personal data

We need your data for a number of reasons. The most common reason is because you have placed an order with us. For this we will need your name, address, delivery address and email address so we can process your order, take payment and deliver your order to you.

email marketing using (perc) soft opt-in

We get your permission to receive marketing emails from us under what is known as a soft opt-in. The primary data protection legislation governing marketing and consent, including the opt-in and soft opt-in options, is the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation (PECR). This sits aside the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). PECR allows a soft opt in only for electronic marketing by the organisation when it is marketing similar services or products to those already received. Hence, as we will only ever send you emails about our puzzles so we are using a soft-opt in approach under PECR.

You can unsubscribe from our emails during the ordering process and at any time, i.e. by ticking the relevant box under the ‘I agree to your terms and conditions’ box which appears at the bottom of our ‘Review and Pay’ screen, or via the unsubscribe link on all our marketing emails. You can also write to us to ask to be removed from our email marketing list.
