What Information We Collect

We will never sell any of your information to third parties.

We will only use your information with third party services where it is necessary for the operation of the business – for example, we use a payment gateway called Stripe to securely process your payments, Mailchimp for emailing newsletters (where you’ve opted in) and delivery services to deliver any products you’ve ordered.

Information provided by you

When you contact us or you place an order through our website or create an account with us, we record the data that you enter into our website so that we can respond to your enquiry or fulfil your order. This information is kept whilst ever your account is active or for up to two years, whichever is the longer. Information will only be kept longer than this wherever there is a legal requirement to do so.

Information automatically collected

In order to analyse how our website is used and to give our customers the best possible experience, we use services such as Google Analytics. This collects data such as your IP address, the type of device you use to access our website, where you are in the world and how you navigate through our website. The data collected by Google Analytics is for the sole use of Of The Oceans and is not used by Google itself. You can opt to disable Google Analytics below.

Like all modern websites, we use cookies. These are small text files that are stored by your web browser. They don’t harm your computer and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Some are stored for up to 30 days and are used so that pop-ups on our site aren’t repeatedly shown to you.

We don’t use cookies for advertising purposes, i.e. After visiting our website, you won’t see adverts for our products on other people’s websites.

Embedded content from other websites

Our website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Should you wish to, any cookies stored from any site can be cleared from within your browser.

Journal Comments

Our website has a journal (blog). When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. Users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Individual’s Data Rights

Should you wish to know what information we store about you, or you wish that information (or comments) be erased, please contact us via the contact form on our website

Communication

We will use your information to contact you regarding your purchases or deliveries. We may contact you with newsletters or for marketing and promotional reasons, but only where you’ve opted to receive them. Where you have opted to receive newsletters, marketing or promotional material, you can opt out at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of the email.

We use Google Analytics to understand how our visitors interact with our website - However, you can opt-out from this by clicking here
