Thank you for visiting www.perfumesociety.org. The following explains how we handle the personal information you provide to use, and what we learn about you from your visit to the site.
Controlling your personal information
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to any third party with the following exceptions: in the case of subscribers, Perfume Discovery Ltd. (our ‘sister’ company, who dispatch The Scented Letter and co-ordinate logistics for events etc.), and Latest in Beauty, who require your mailing details only for sending out our Fragrance Education Discovery Boxes. We do not hold or store credit card details nor do we share these with any third party.
In occasional instances where (non-credit card) information may be shared with third parties, an ‘opt-in’ box will on each occasion allow you the opportunity to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. We only ask for your phone number in order to deal with any queries on delivery; phone numbers will never be shared with a third party. We will only use your personal information to tell you about third parties who we think you may find interesting if you opt in for this to happen, on each individual basis.
You may request details of personal information which we hold about you under the Data Protection Act 1998. A small fee will be payable. If you would like a copy of the information held on you please write to The Perfume Society, 3rd Floor, 30 Charing Cross Road, London, WC2H 0DE, or e-mail us using the contact form at the top of this section of the website.
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please e-mail us using the simple form above. (Please forgive the fact you have to enter a few letters and numbers; it’s to prevent spamming blocking our in-box, so we can respond as swiftly as we’d like.)
