Privacy Policy

General Principles

Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We have accordingly developed this Privacy Policy to protect your personal information and keep it confidential. We endeavour to comply with laws of other countries but cannot and do not warrant that we do. We do everything we reasonably can to protect your rights of privacy on systems and the Website controlled by us, but we are not liable for any unauthorised or unlawful disclosures of your personal and confidential information made by third parties who are not subject to our control, for example advertisers and websites that have links to our Website. You should take note that the information and privacy practices of our business partners, advertisers, sponsors or other sites to which we may provide hyperlinks, may be different from ours.

We categorise information about you (collectively referred to as "Personal Information") as follows:

 

 (A)          Profiling Information: Information which you provide when you register for a Service, which may include some or all of the following:

                 Information about your personal identity such as gender, marital status, age, etc.;

                 Your financial information such as your banking details and any information relating to your income and lifestyle levels; and

                 Your contact details such as your physical addresses, postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers and the like.

(B)           Payment and Account Information: Your account history with us including (without limitation) all billing information and communications, payment history etc. We maintain

                 this in encrypted form on secure servers.

                Services including email communication.

(H)          Stored Information: Data either created by you or by a third party and which you wish to store on our servers such as image files, documents etc. We only collect your

                 Personal Information to conduct our business and to enable us to deliver and improve our Services. We do not for any reason whatsoever sell your Personal Information to

                 any third party or otherwise trade on it.

 

We will only disclose your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This information may be disclosed to specific members of our staff and third party shipping agencies involved in the completion of your transaction and delivery of your order. If we want to use it for any other purpose, we will obtain your prior written consent. If you decline to submit personal information to us, then we will unfortunately not be in a position to provide the Services to you. We are not liable to you or any third party for any damages that you or any third party may suffer howsoever arising from your disclosure of Personal Information in any public environment. You accordingly disclose information in a public environment at your own risk.

 

Service providers

The House Of Tara may use various outside agencies (third party service providers) to make our Website operate. For example, we may use third parties to host our Website, operate various features made available on our Website, send emails, analyze data, provide search results and links, and assist in fulfilling your orders. Some of these third parties may need access to your information in order to make the services provided through our Website work. Information will only be disclosed to these service providers on a need-to-know basis, and they will only be permitted to use such information for the purpose of providing the particular services provided by such entities in connection with our Website.

 

Right To Collect

 

By accepting the Terms of Service you agree that we may collect and store your Personal Information as long as you use our Services subject to the limitations set out in this Privacy Policy.

 

(A)       We collect your Profiling and Account Information for the following reasons:

            1. We need your identity details, contact details, banking information and account history to manage our relationship with you and provide Services to you.

            2. We use certain of your information in an aggregated form to compile statistical and demographical profiles for our business and marketing activities. We may disclose such

                information about you, provided that the information is in an aggregated form that is not capable of being used or interpreted in such a manner as to identify you.

(B)       We collect and store your Service Usage and Transactional Information to:

            1. Determine and verify the Service Charges payable by you and to administer our relationship with you.

            2. Comply with any statutory or regulatory requirement.

            3. Compile statistical and demographical profiles about you for our business and marketing activities and to customise our Services to you. While we are entitled to use such

                information about you for our own internal business purposes without limitation, we will only disclose it in an aggregated form which is not capable of being used or

                interpreted in such a manner as to identify you; and

            4. Monitor your use of our Services for the purposes of ensuring compliance with our    Terms of Service.

                    legitimate purpose including (without limitation) the commercial sale thereof to third parties. Sometime we use "cookies" so that we can provide you with more

                    customised information when you return to our website. "Cookies" are used to store user preferences and to track user trends, so as to enhance your interactive

                    experience and generally improve our Services to you. You can set your browser to notify you when you are sent a "cookie", giving you the chance to decide whether or

                    not to accept it. If you do accept a "cookie", you thereby agree to our use of any Personal Information collected by us using that Cookie. You may update your Profiling

                    Information at any time on the website. You acknowledge and agree that in the interests of improving personalisation and Service efficiency, we may, under controlled

                    and secure circumstances, share your Personal Information with our affiliates.

we will do so in the manner as prescribed by law. Such interception, disclosure, monitoring and storage may take place without your knowledge.
