We will not share your personal information with any other parties, and we only use Cookies to facilitate the order process. If you are concerned about your personal data, you have the right subject to the payment of a fee (currently £10) to request access to the personal data which we may hold or process about you. You have the right to require us to correct any inaccuracies in your data free of charge.

    Our email newsletter contains marketing and promotional information.  You can choose to sign up to this either when registering to place an order or by joining our mailing list.  At any stage you have the right to ask us to stop using your personal data for direct marketing purposes. You can opt-out at any time via Your Account.

    Cookie Information

    Our primary goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and personalised experience while using our services. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customise our service to make your experience easier and quicker.

    We use a web analytics tool to analyse site usage, how our users arrive at our site, what they do on the site, what browser they are using and on what operating system etc. However, this analytics data, collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site, is not tied to personally identifiable information.

    Cookies

    We use a number of different cookies on our site. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit http://www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.

    The following information describes the cookies we use on this site and what we use them for. Currently we operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that we assume you are happy with this usage. If you are not happy, then you should either not use this site, or you should delete A Hume cookies having visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, "Private Browsing" in Firefox and Safari etc.)

    Session Cookies 

    We use a session cookie to remember your log-in for you and what you’ve put in the shopping basket. These we deem strictly necessary to the working of the website. If these are disabled, various functions on the site will no longer work as designed. More information on session cookies and what they are used for at http://goo.gl/7jbXw


    Persistent Cookies for Site Analytics and Performance 

    Google Analytics

    We use this to understand how the site is being used in order to improve the user experience. User data is all anonymous. You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy as regards its analytics service at http://goo.gl/ek47W


    Social buttons 

    On many of the pages of the site you will see ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. There are buttons for: Twitter, Google +1, Facebook ‘Like’, LinkedIn ‘Share’, and StumbleUpon. In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of A Hume. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on A Hume’s site. So if you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. In some cases these sites will be registering the fact that you are visiting A Hume, and the specific pages you are on, even if you don’t click on the button if you are logged into their services, like Google and Facebook. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.


    Email tracking 

    Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all e.g. service emails with invoices attached. Other emails we send we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site but we do not know who has clicked so the data is anonymous e.g. our promotional email. Some emails we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. We rarely use the latter information at a personal level, rather we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve them. If you want to be sure that none of your email activity is tracked then you should opt out of A Hume’s emails which you can do via Your Account.  

    Site Improvement Cookies

    We may test new designs or site features on our site from time to time. We do this by showing slightly different versions of our website to different people and monitor how our site visitors respond to these different versions.
