Why We Collect Your Personal Information

There are two main purposes for gathering your personal information, for transaction processing and for marketing purposes.

Transaction Processing

When you purchase a product from our website or catalogues, you become a customer of Victoriana Nursery Gardens, so we retain personal information on you whilst you remain an active customer of ours and also for a short time when you no longer order from us. Our Data Retention policy below explains how long we retain your personal information. In all cases for transaction processing, our legal basis for processing your personal data is contract.

Marketing Activities

We have separated out each marketing activity that your personal data is used for below. Note that any customers or website visitors who doesn't want to receive marketing communications from us can change their preferences by visiting My Details & Preferences. If you do not want to do this or have any other concerns please contact us either by phoning 01233 740529 or emailing help@victoriananursery.co.uk. Victoriana Nursery Gardens will never send you a marketing communication that doesn't have a method of opting out from the marketing communications contained within it.

Catalogues

We do not hold a catalogue mailing list or hold any of your personal information for the purposes of direct marketing by post. If you want an updated catalogue you need to contact us!

Product Offers

From time to time Victoriana Nursery Gardens will send you discounted product offers via email if you have chosen to receive these. The legal basis for processing is legitimate interest.

Newsletters

We will email customers who have chosen to receive 'Emails & Newsletters' from us, i.e occasional newsletters containing news of upcoming events at the nursery or timely horticultural tips. The legal basis for processing is legitimate interest.

Where Do We Store Your Personal Information?

The personal information we collect about you is stored on our Secure Servers which are located in secure Data Centres in the UK. No identifiable personal information is stored or shipped to non-UK/EU locations. Your personal information is stored in databases which are encrypted at rest, providing the highest level of security. Additionally our Servers are regularly scanned for penetration vulnerabilities in order to comply with the requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCIDSS). All personal information is moved to and from our website www.victoriananursery.co.uk and Processing System via an HTTPS connection, which means that the transfer of data is also encrypted.

No physical 'paper' records containing your personal information are maintained or stored long term; once inputted onto our Secure Processing System any paper records (orders placed by post, internal telephone contact notes etc.) are shredded. Prior to being inputted on to our Secure Processing System and physical ‘paper' records are stored in our secure offices which are additionally monitored by CCTV.

Access to your personal data held on databases managed by Victoriana Nursery Gardens or its authorised subcontractors is granted only when there is a need to use the data: no permanent access exists.

Data Retention – How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information For?

If you made a purchase from us we will keep the information you gave us and details of what you bought for up to seven years from the date of the last transaction with us, except in the event of a legal dispute. This seven-year limit is based on the legal requirement to maintain details of transactions as described in the Companies Act 2006. After that time your personal data will be anonymised, but we will keep your purchase and marketing history.

If you are a Scarecrow (a member of our Scarecrow Club loyalty scheme), we will keep your information on an ongoing basis. The legal basis for this is we have an ongoing contract with you to supply our goods to you at a discounted price. If you would prefer to formally leave our Scarecrow Club please email us at help@victoriananursery.co.uk. Our data retention period would then be the same as above.
