If you’re not yet a customer and you contact us for information about our services, we need to process your details when we reply. We will be storing the details you enter (such as your name, email address and telephone number) in a digital form, and using those to send you the information you have requested. We would also like to send you the occasional marketing email or letter, letting you know about our services and any special offers. We will send no more than two such communications each month, and will keep your details on file for no more than three years. We only need your name and contact details, and we will rely on your consent for this. You have the right to withdraw consent at any later time – just let us know.
As a customer, we need personal information from you to help us to give you the best possible eye-care and service. We are aware that some of this will be highly confidential in nature, and will treat it accordingly, keeping it as safe as possible from prying eyes. In particular, we never store your prescription details electronically, only on paper, so it can’t be hacked into. This forms part of our contract with you, and our commitment to you as a valued customer.
We will not ask for information from you that is not relevant to our provision of eye-care services to you. Your personal data will be used to provide the information, goods and services offered through our website to you, for billing and order fulfillment.
We will keep your contact details such as name, email address, phone number and postal address on file and treat these as confidential. This forms part of our contract with you, and our commitment to you as a valued customer. We will not ask for information from you that is not relevant to the provision of services to you. We normally retain this, along with any prescription information permanently unless you tell us to discard it, as it can help ensure your next prescription is correct - opticians have been known to make mistakes, and it is better for all concerned if these are spotted before any lenses have been made! We will contact you each year to remind you to get your eyes tested, and up to once a month to let you know about any new services or special offers. You can opt out of either of these if you wish – just tell us. Contact us >
