Privacy Policy

Wilderness at Heart - Your Privacy


Changes are taking place to protect us from the misuse of our private data. It is very important we help you to become aware of your rights with regard to the data we at Wilderness at Heart hold and how it is used.

You may have already realised that many companies you deal with are having to upgrade their privacy policy as a result of new data privacy regulations which come into force on 25th May 2018. Wilderness at Heart is no exception; we have always taken data protection very seriously and we want to keep you informed of any changes coming your way.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR for short) is taking a step towards you having more control over how your data is used and how you want to be contacted not just on Wilderness at Heart but on every other website which provides services to EU citizens.

At Wilderness at Heart we only use the data you provide us to send out your orders which means that Wilderness at Heart fits into the GDPR category referred to as contract.  In effect we process your data in order to supply you with your purchase from us and also to supply you with the information you require to make a well-informed decision. We do not sell or share your data. We do not buy in 3rd party data. We never share your data except with organisations such as your credit card company which needs the information to approve your payment on your card. Your data is stored securely on our personal computers and servers at www.wildernessatheart.co.uk. You may have also contacted us via Facebook, Facebook Messenger or ordered products from us via Amazon UK and therefore some personal details may also be held there.

You always have the right to request your data is removed from our databases etc. or to see what data we hold for you.  Just send an email to: dinaz@wildernessatheart.co.uk with your request. 

Below is our Privacy & Cookie Policy which provides details of how we use personal data that we collect about you; how we share that information and the steps we take to protect your information. Please read below for further details.
