Sharing data with our partners

CVIC may share your personal data with carefully selected third party service providers (‘processors’) where it is necessary to facilitate the provision of our goods and services to you. This includes our warehouse, fulfilment, hosting, IT and online marketing service providers. We use industry-leading secure payment processing partners but do not store credit or debit card information.

CVIC will not pass on, sell or share your data with any other third parties unless we are under a legal obligation to do so.


How do we protect personal data

We take the security of your personal data very seriously and have measures in place to keep it safe and secure. These include data encryption, cyber security measures, password protection and the use of secure servers.

Additionally we utilise user permissions to restrict access to the minimum level of data required to fulfil our obligations. We do not collect, use or store data that is not required to provide our services. Paper documents such as registration forms are always retained in locked storage areas.

Wherever possible we use pseudonyms (such as using reference numbers to identify individuals and orders) and data anonymization (converting data into a format that does not uniquely identify individuals) to minimise access to your personal data.

We also regularly check the security arrangements of the approved third party partners that act on our behalf to ensure their provisions meet accepted standards. This is reflected in our contractual agreements and non-disclosure agreements.

Whilst transmitting data over the internet (including via email) is not totally secure we do make every effort to ensure the security of data you share us.
