We do not sell your information and should you wish to unsubscribe from any of our newsletters; containing competitions and discounts, you can do so at any time, directly from the email you’ve recieved or from within your account.

WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

When you place an Order, we may ask you for certain information and you may submit personal data to theminifigs.co.uk or to PayPal (for example your name, phone number, postal address, email address, contact and bank / credit card details). We may also record which products you purchase as well as customer traffic patterns and site use.

This information will be kept securely in accordance with our internal security policy and may be used to:

  • process your Order
  • Provide you with an up to date, efficient, and reliable service
  • Help fraud prevention i.e. we check card details with our credit agency and reserve the right to refuse Orders on that basis (your credit rating can be checked for a nominal fee with the main UK agencies Equifax and Experian)
  • Open and run your account
  • Administer prize draws
  • Provide a more personal shopping experience.

By making an Order and submitting your data you agree to this use. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.

MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS

We will not send you any marketing emails unless you give us your consent, or unless we have it already. When creating an account or placing an order, you are given the opportunity to opt out from all newsletters, otherwise by default you will be added to our mailing list. If you have used the theminigs.com web site before or have ordered products from us before it is possible that we have this information already and it is being used to contact you about offers, events, items or related activities that you may find useful. If you are an existing customer we will continue to keep you informed unless you tell us not to, you can unsuscribe from all newsletters from the my Account page, when ever you like. Once un-subscribed you will also be able to subscribe again at any time should you want to recieve our awesome newsletters again. Order confirmation emails and dispatch notification emails are only sent when you place orders and as these are a one off communication, you are unable to opt out of these. How else would you know we’ve sent out your goodies?

We do not share information with any other companies both within and outside the European Union.
