The Otter Nursery is committed to protecting the privacy of our site visitors and customers. We will not disclose information about our customers to third parties except where it is a necessary part of providing a service to you (e.g. arranging for a product to be sent to you).
In order to arrange and complete a service and delivery to you, we require your name and address, as well as your telephone number, so we can keep you updated on the progress of your order. We cannot complete your order and delivery without payment, so we require the long number on your credit/debit card, the expiry date and the last three digits on the signature strip.
We will not rent or sell your name, address, email address, credit card information or personal information to any third party (excluding partners from whom you may have linked to our site) without your permission. If you have purchased from our store and registered with our site, subscribed to one of our newsletters and entered any of our competitions, or advised us of your email address, postal address and telephone number, we may occasionally update you on news and special opportunities via email, post and telephone.
Communication and marketing
By becoming a member of The Otter Nursery and providing us with your email, postal address and telephone number, you consent to receive communication from us about our latest products and special offers (our emails refer to your membership and the products and services we offer including garden plants and gifts, etc) which we think may be of interest to you. The information may also be used to notify you of products and services of third parties, which may be of interest to you.
Opting out of communication
You have the option to opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us and/or selected third parties at any time. If you do not wish to receive marketing (emails, postal, telephone) from us and/or selected third parties we recommend you opt-out by visiting the ‘Your account’ area of the website, where this option will be displayed.
