Here at Visage Textiles we value your privacy just as much as your custom and we are dedicated to giving you a great service that will allow you to browse through our product range and obtain more information with peace of mind. Please read through the statement below, which outlines how we use the information we collect through the website and how it is stored.
What Information do you store?
Details of each user account, contact form submission, stockist application, sample request, representative visit request and mailing list subscription are stored in a secure database, preventing the illegal access and malicious use of your data.
When you register with us, Visage Textiles collects a small amount of ‘Personal Data’ that is vital to your registration with us. ‘Personal data’ is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. That means any information that could be used, on its own or in conjunction with other data, to identify an individual, about you or your partner who register with Visage Textiles.
Your registration information is stored securely in a database and in plain text, with the exception of your password, which is encrypted to prevent unauthorised access to your own personal login area.
When you submit any of the contact forms on the Visage Textiles website, your submission is sent to us via email. The details we collect are specifically those found on the form you fill in.
The details are kept only as long as they are relevant, and are removed completely once the request/submission has been dealt with. We do not store submission details any longer they are required, and details are never passed on to any third party or non-Visage Textiles contact (unless specifically requested/consented by the owner of those details).
