This Privacy Policy sets out how Hughes Memorial cards (henceforth referred to as “us”, “we” or “our”) may treat any personal information that we collect or receive from you, during your use of our services (the “website”). Please note that we may, from time to time, use third-party data processors, who are not our employees, agents or entities associated to us, whom we have contracted to process your data (“data processors”).

What is the purpose of collecting your personal information?

  • To perform market research
  • To personalize your experience and respond better to your individual needs
  • To improve our website based on the information and feedback you provide us
  • To inform you via emails or newsletters of products or services provided by us or a third-party that you may be interested in, where you have given your consent to be contacted for such purposes by either us or by third-party data processors, or both.

When you provide personal information to us about another person, you agree that you are authorized to provide the information to us, and that you will inform the said person about our company, how we use his/her/their information, and that he/she/they have the legal right to access their information.

The personal information we collect from you includes and is not limited to your name, email address, telephone number, log in information (including your IP address; you can browse the public areas of the website without identifying yourself or providing personal information), and any transactional information related to order processing and fulfilment.

We may request the above information on the website at the time of registration or at any subsequent point. We may provide the collected data to a third party for fulfilling the particular purpose for which the information was furnished.

Certain situations may compel us to disclose personally identifiable information without your prior consent:

  • When we are legally obligated to do so, such as providing the information to a law enforcement entity pursuant to a court order issued by a duly authorized court or for the purposes of preventing crime or fraud.
  • As part of our agreement with a third party for the purchase or sale of any business or asset(s); your information may be shared with the prospective buyer or seller of business or asset(s).
  • In the event that we or all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case any personal information held by us will among the transferred assets.
  • To enforce our terms and conditions, or to protect our rights, safety, property, customers or other assets/entities.

As per the Data Collection Act 1998, the data collectors are:

–please add your address—

The data we collect from you may be transferred or stored at a location outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing and processing. We are committed to ensuring high levels of privacy and security for your data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We also go the extra mile to ensure the privacy of every visitor on the website.

Use of non-personal information

We may collect non-personal information about you. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, ‘non-personal data’ is any information that does not directly identify you. It includes the type of browser you use or how you arrived at the website. We will use this information for the sole reason of improving the services we provide. We may, from time to time, inform the third party websites linked to the website about the number of users arriving at the website from their website.
