Privacy Policy

Updated 24 November 2019

Childs Farm values transparency and wants you to be clear about why we ask you for personal information when you purchase from us. We’re also committed to protecting your information and using it responsibly.

This policy tells you how we collect, use and store your information.

The processing of your information is carried out by Childs Farm Limited, The Barn, Kestrel Court, Sherborne St. John, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG24 9HJ

Please read the following carefully to understand our practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it. By providing your personal data to Childs Farm (either directly or through a third party), you will be deemed to have consented to processing of such data by us as set out in this Privacy Policy. We recommend that you print a copy of it for future reference. We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time as set out in paragraph 12. This Privacy Policy was most recently updated on 24 November 2019.

Please note that the Childs Farm Terms & Conditions of Sales shall apply to the purchase of products from the Site and its Website Terms of Use shall apply to all use of the Site (as defined below).

If you do not agree with use of your personal data as set out in this Privacy Policy you should not submit your personal data to us.

    • The website hosted at www.childsfarm.com (“the Site”) is owned and operated by Childs Farm Limited (“Childs Farm”) whose company number is 07454284 and whose registered address is The Barn, Kestrel Court, Sherborne St John, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG24 9HJ. Childs Farm may, from time to time, fulfil its obligations to you through a third party. References in this Privacy Policy to “we”, “us” and “our” should be construed as references to Childs Farm itself or acting through such third parties, unless the context requires otherwise.
    • Childs Farm is responsible for the Site and is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and security. For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (“the DP Legislation”) the data controller of the Site and the personal data processed through it is Childs Farm.
  • Use of Site if you are 16 or under

    • If you are aged 16 or under, you must ask your parent/guardian’s permission before you use this Site.  Your parent/guardian must read and be happy that they understand this Privacy Policy and the proposed uses of your personal data before giving their consent to the processing of your personal data on these terms.
  • Why we use your information

    We will only use your information where we have a legal basis and will always respect your rights. Where we use your information, it may be because you have consented to us doing so or because we consider we have a legitimate interest to do so. Where we do rely on a legitimate interest to use your information, we will always ensure that this is done in a way that is not intrusive. We may also use your information because we have a legal obligation to do so or because we need to fulfil a contractual obligation.

    How we use your information

    3.1 To send you marketing communications by email, mobile messaging, or direct message on social media, where you have agreed to receive this

    Where you have provided an email address, mobile phone number, or details of your social media profiles and consented to being contacted in this way, we will send you information by those channels – including by direct message through social media. We never give your information to partner organisations and third parties without your prior consent except as set out in this Privacy Policy.

    To manage your contact preferences

    You can tell us to stop contacting you, or change the way in which we do so, by getting in touch with us using the details in the Contact us section or emailing enquiries@childsfarm.com. We will keep a record of any requests to stop receiving marketing information from us to ensure that we do not communicate with you in the future, unless you tell us you want to hear from us again.

    3.2 To help us speak to you in a way that is relevant to you, and to understand our customers more broadly

    We try to ensure that our communications are as effective as possible. This means communicating with people in different ways, appropriate to them.

    On occasion, we will use information you have given us, for example the record of your previous purchases, to tailor our communications with you about future activities. We will also use information about how you use our website or interact with our emails so we can make them more effective.

    We will also use broad demographic information such as statistics and analysis from third parties to better understand how our own supporter base compares to the general population. This helps us to decide who to send our communications to and is useful to ensure the communications you receive are relevant to you.

    We will analyse anonymised data from our database so that we can understand our customer. Insights like this help us understand customers, create segments and categorise our customers so they get a better experience.

    If you would prefer we didn’t use your information in this way, then you have the right to tell us to stop and can do so by getting in touch with us using the details in the Contact us section or emailing enquiries@childsfarm.com.

    3.3 To target our digital and social media marketing and website activity

    If you visit our website, we log the IP address of the computer you are using in order to protect our servers against abuse and malicious activity. Other information is used to measure the performance of our website, how many visitors (traffic) we receive and the behaviour of the visitors to site.

    When you access our website, some cookies are saved to your computer, for example if you have chosen a particular landing setting or created a user account. You can also turn off your cookies so that we can’t access this information. For more information, please read our Cookies Policy under section 9.

    We may also use the information you provide us with to target our digital and social media advertising effectively. This could include securely providing contact details such as your name and email address to digital advertising networks or social media companies, including but not limited to Facebook and Google. For example, we may use your information to enable us to display adverts to you, or to find potential supporters who have similar characteristics to you.

    Any information we share with digital advertising networks will be encrypted and will not permit any wider use. You can stop your information being used for this by contacting us at enquiries@childsfarm.com

    Where you have asked us not to use your information for targeted digital advertising, you may still see adverts related to Childs Farm UK. This is because the social media site or advertising network may select you based on information they hold, such as your age and location, or websites you have visited, without using information that has been provided by us.

    You can control the kind of advertising which you see through the settings in the relevant social media site.

    You can also control other advertising messages by changing your browser settings, and opting out via networks such as Digital Advertising Alliance.

    3.4 Use of any images, videos of, or other information you share with us

    If you share your purchase of Childs Farm, or your personal experiences, by post, email or over social media, we may want to use this. If you are participating in an event with us, we’ll ask if you are happy to be included in our pictures – please tell us if you are not. In other cases, we will obtain the necessary permission to use this information or share this via social media – if you have already posted information yourself via social media about your engagement with us, we may repost your information.

    • We will retain our records of your personal data (as set out in Section 3 above) unless and until you request that we delete or update it.
    • Please see Section 11 for details of how to request that we delete or update your personal data record.

However, the internet is not a totally secure medium and you acknowledge and agree that Childs Farm shall not be responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility by the DP Legislation.
    • We will only transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to the extent that you require Products to be delivered outside the EEA.

    • in relation to any promotions that we run jointly with a third party – see paragraph 7;
    • in relation to any acquisition by Childs Farm or if Childs Farm is acquired by or merged with, another company, we may transfer your personal data to purchasers or subsidiaries (and potential purchasers or subsidiaries).

    • in circumstances in which we are required or authorised by law (including, but not limited to, the DP Legislation ), court order, regulatory or governmental authorities to disclose your personal data.
    • Occasionally we may run a joint initiative with a third party. In those circumstances we may transfer personal data to the named third parties. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal data, if the data will be shared with the third party/ies (where it is Childs Farm that is collecting the personal data) and whose privacy policy will apply.
    • Of course, if you post any personal data to any bulletin boards or forums, this information will immediately be made available to other users throughout the world who may use it to send you unsolicited communications.
    • Also, if you post any content in breach of the Terms of Use we may inform any relevant third parties such as your parent/guardian/employer, e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies (as appropriate) about the content and your behaviour.
