We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information”.
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

PRIVACY AND PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
In our everyday business operations we make use of a variety of data about visitors, including data about:
- Users of our websites
- Subscribers to our newsletters
- Other stakeholders
In collecting and using this data, we are subject to a variety of new legislation controlling how such activities may be carried out and the safeguards that must be put in place to protect it.
The purpose of this policy is to set out the relevant legislation and to describe the steps we take to ensure that we comply with it.
This control applies to all systems, people and processes that constitute our information systems, including directors and employees who have access to our systems.
The following elements of the GDPR legislation are relevant to this Notice:
- Data Protection Impact Assessment Process
- Personal Data Mapping Procedure
- Legitimate Interest Assessment Procedure
- GDPR Roles and Responsibilities
- Records Retention and Protection Policy
To find out more about the details of how we protect, process, use and share your data, read the sections below:
DATA PROTECTION REGULATION
The General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (GDPR) is one of the new pieces of legislation affecting the way that we carry out our information processing activities. Significant fines are applicable if a breach is deemed to have occurred under the GDPR, which is designed to protect the personal data of citizens of the European Union. It is our policy to ensure that our compliance with the GDPR and other relevant legislation is clear and demonstrable at all times.
The data subject – i.e. you - also has rights under the GDPR. These consist of:
- Your right to be informed
- Your right of access
- Your right to rectification
- Your right to erasure
- Your right to restrict processing
- Your right to data portability
- Your right to object
- Your rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
Each of these rights are supported by appropriate procedures within Snaked that allow the required action to be taken within the timescales stated in the GDPR.
These timescales are as follows:
Timescale for our response
The right to be informed
When data is collected (if supplied by you) or within one month (if not supplied by you)
The right of access
The right to rectification
The right to erasure
Without undue delay
The right to restrict processing
Without undue delay
The right to data portability
The right to object
On receipt of objection
Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.
LAWFULNESS OF PROCESSING
There are six alternative ways in which the lawfulness of a specific case of processing of personal data may be established under the GDPR. It is our policy to identify the appropriate basis for processing and to document it, in accordance with the Regulation. Three of the six options that apply to us are described briefly as follows:
Unless it is necessary for a reason allowable in the GDPR, we will always obtain explicit consent from you to collect and process your data. Transparent information about our usage of your personal data will be provided to you at the time that consent is obtained and your rights with regard to your data explained, such as the right to withdraw consent. This information will be provided in an accessible form, written in clear language and free of charge.
- Performance of a Contract
Where the personal data collected and processed are required to fulfil a contract with you, explicit consent is not required. This will often be the case where the contract cannot be completed without the personal data in question e.g. we can't deliver to you without an address to deliver to.
- Legitimate Interests
If the processing of specific personal data is in the legitimate interests of Snaked and is judged not to affect the rights and freedoms of the data subject in a significant way, then this may be defined as the lawful reason for the processing. The reasoning behind this view will be documented.
SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name, address, email address or credit card information. We want to earn and maintain your trust, and we believe this is absolutely essential in order to do that.
However, we do share your data with the following categories of companies as an essential part of being able to provide our services to you, as set out in this statement:
- Companies that do things to get your purchases to you, such as ecommerce providers like Shopify, payment service providers like Amazon Pay, warehouses, order packers, and delivery companies
- Professional service providers, such as marketing agencies, advertising partners and website hosts, who help us run our business
- Credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies, so we can help tackle fraud
- Companies approved by you, such as social media sites (if you choose to contact us via social media channels)
We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.
SEEING ADVERTS FOR SNAKED ONLINE
We engage in online advertising, both to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products.
Like many companies, we target Snaked banners and ads to you when you are on other websites and apps. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and we use a range of advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience service.
The banners and ads you see will be based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of Snaked (for example, your Snaked search history, and the content you read on Snaked) or on Snaked banners or ads you have previously clicked on.
If you have said we can, we’ll send you marketing messages by email, to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you see and find our products.
How to stop marketing messages from Snaked:
You can stop receiving marketing messages from us at any time. You can do this:
- By clicking "unsubscribe from this list" or "update subscription preferences" in the footer of any marketing email you receive from us
- By contacting our Customer Care team
Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive further marketing messages.
Please note that, as it might take a up to 3 working days for all our systems to be updated, so you might get messages from us while we process your request.
Stopping marketing messages will not stop service communications (such as order updates and product restock notifications) or where you have expressed interest in a specific activity at Snaked, such as the launch of new collections.
KEEPING YOUR INFORMATION
We’ll hold on to your information for as long as you have your account, or as long as is needed to be able to provide the services to you, or (in the case of any contact you may have with our Customer Care team) for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only.
If reasonably necessary or required to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our terms and conditions, we may also keep hold of some of your information as required, even after you have closed your account or it is no longer needed to provide the services to you.
