Our Privacy Commitment
The Bowdaa.com website(s) is owned and operated by Bowdaa Technologies Inc. We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We will only collect, store and use your personal information for specific purposes. We use your personal information to support and enhance our relationship with you. We only share your personal information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and other applicable laws. You may contact Bowdaa at any time with any privacy questions or concerns, and to request access to the personal information we hold about you. You can also contact us with any corrections to this data or deletion requests.
Information about you
When a customer or designer (this is what we call our marketplace sellers) register with Bowdaa we ask for information and keep a record of such information, including;
- E-mail address
- Postal address
- Phone number
- Order history
All this is necessary so we can recognize you as a registered customer, pass on the correct details with your order, and ensure that you are happy with the service you receive. We keep a record of any purchase you make from any of our designer's stores on Bowdaa. This means both they and (in some instances) we can help to deal quickly with any queries or problems you may have, and also so we can ensure that any information that we send you is relevant.
We keep a record of all e-mail correspondence you send us, so we can track any problems or concerns you've had with any of the partners' stores on our website.
We'll also ask you questions at registration, and from time to time by email, that will give us information that will be used to improve your experience of shopping at Bowdaa. You do not have to answer these questions, but if you do we can communicate with you in a more relevant way.
If you would like to revise the information you have provided to us or feel that what we currently have on record is incorrect, you may update the information by contacting us.
How we use your personal data
All the information we collect via our website or through correspondence with you is used to operate and improve the service we offer you and to personalize our service. We are committed to using your personal information only for:
- Passing on your orders to your chosen Bowdaa designer(s) so they can supply goods and services to you and for customer administration.
- Planning and managing Bowdaa's business activities, including the analysis of customers' shopping habits, product and style preferences to improve our service.
- Technical administration of our website.
- Providing you with information about the services we offer.
- Letting you know about offers and news from Bowdaa.
- Letting you know about offers, news, and products from partner stores on our site.
- Passing your details to the designated courier in order to fulfill delivery of your order.
- To verify the details of your payment method or credit card account.
Occasionally we will let you know about offers from other companies who we believe may interest you, either by sending out the information ourselves to you directly or by providing certain details to other companies so they may contact you directly.
We do not store credit card details nor do we share financial details with any 3rd parties.
Circumstances in which we may share some of your data with others:
To outside research companies whom we may ask to contact you directly for your opinions on our service, and our designer's products and services (in which case we provide them with only the information they need to perform their function).
We occasionally make names, addresses and email addresses available to companies whose products we think may interest you unless you have subsequently withdrawn that permission.
If we are requested by the police or a regulatory or government authority investigating illegal activities to provide information concerning your activities whilst using Bowdaa we shall do so.
A cookie is a small text file that a website can send to your computer's browser. It's like an internet user's identification card, which tells a website when a user is re-visiting the site. Their ability is limited to containing and transferring to the website as much information as the users have disclosed to that site. Cookies can't read or interfere with other information saved on your hard drive. The Bowdaa website (in common with most other shopping websites) will not work without cookies.
Data over the internet
The internet is a global network, so it is possible for your data to travel internationally, which may include places both inside and outside the European Union. If you visit or shop at Bowdaa, you're agreeing and authorizing us to process data in this way.
How we protect information
We take every precaution to protect your information.
To this end, all personal information stored by us is kept on a server in a secure environment. Only employees, our designers and any sub-contractors who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.
You acknowledge that the internet is not a 100% secure medium for communication and, accordingly, we cannot fully guarantee the security of any information you send to us (or we send to you) via the internet. We are not responsible for any damages which you, or others, may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality of such information.
How you can help us protect your information
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online in non-protected environments - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Also, remember to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or internet café. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

Our designer’s privacy policies
Our designers are bound by the same legislation as us, and if they gather or keep your information, they must give you all relevant information about their policy, as well as giving you the opportunity to opt in or out of certain ways in which they might use that information.
