'The website' refers to the platform we use to run how-livewell.com and our HOW Department Shops.
'The database' is the platform we use to collect and store email addresses of people that want to receive marketing communications from us, namely our email newsletter.
The 'order system' is used to process and fulfil all our online and in-store orders.
You can request for us to delete information we hold for you on the website or the system at any time, presuming there are no outstanding orders or payments. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'DELETE MY ACCOUNT' using the corresponding email address.
We use the database to send these marketing emails to people who have given us their information and consented to receive communications from us.
We also use the database to send transactional emails to customers who have made purchases directly from HOW Department Shop.
Any person in the database can decide exactly what type of marketing emails they receive by clicking the 'Update my preferences' link in the footer of the last marketing email they received.
Likewise, any person can unsubscribe and be removed from the database at any time with immediate effect, by clicking the Unsubscribe link in the footer of the last marketing email they received and confirming their un-subscription.
